Things to Know for a great Sunday session

*** VERY IMPORTANT for every week  ***
Prior to leaving home, please go through the following 4 questions to ensure your athlete should be going to the session:

In the past 14 days, has your child:

1) experienced a fever of 100.4 or greater, cough, loss of smell or taste, shortness of breath, runny nose?
2) received a positive result from a COVID-19 test ?
3) been in contact with anyone with COVID-19 or symptoms ?
4) or someone in close contact traveled to a region with COVID-19 restrictions?

The expectation is that players have gone through these 4 questions at home and the response is “no” to each one.  By doing this the coaches will only be asking “How are you feeling today?” during check-in.  If players are not feeling well please do not bring them to the session.  
We will be following COVID guidelines by the State of MA and MA Youth Soccer Association. Some of the key guidelines would be:
  • Please arrive no earlier than 15/20 minutes prior to your scheduled time
  • Mask wearing is required for all
  • 6 feet of Social Distancing between family units is required

For more information please view our COVID-19 page HERE

Spring 2021 Travel Registration is open!

Hello,

This spring MYSA and Essex County Youth Soccer Association is planning on having a travel season.  At this time WSA is opening up travel registration for returning fall players in grades 3-8 as well as players in grades 9-PG.

If our governing bodies (including the governor’s office) deem travel soccer to be too great a risk WSA will explore alternative options for play.  This may include returning to the in town model we instituted in the fall.  We are optimistic that we will have some form of ECYSA play with Covid-19 safety precautions still in place.

For updated information regarding the stages of play and guidelines from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts please visit:

mayouthsoccer.org/returntosocceractivitiespdf/

Wakefield Soccer is working with MYSA, ECYSA, local and state officials to ensure we are in compliance with all safety protocols. For any questions/concerns you may have about safety precautions around Covid-19 you can reach out to us at: [email protected].

For more information on the travel season please visit https://www.wakefieldsoccer.org/programs/travel/Spring-2021/

Volunteer to coach:

If you are interested in coaching this year please indicate so when registering and fill out the form at https://www.wakefieldsoccer.org/coaches/volunteer-to-coach/.  We need additional coaches this season at all levels.

Uniforms:

WSA uses a 2 year uniform rotation to minimize the cost incurred by our membership.  We are currently in the 2nd year of the 2-year cycle.  For players that did not purchase a uniform in the fall/last spring (grades 3 and 9-12) we are still looking into uniform requirements as set by ECYSA.

For returning players who are looking to replace damaged or missing uniforms for all other grades if you wish to order a uniform regardless of the ECYSA requirements you can visit https://www.wakefieldsoccer.org/programs/travel/travel-uniforms/ for more information.  Please contact your coach to confirm the number.

Intramurals/Academy:

Registration for grades Pre-K through 2nd grade will be opening at a later date.

To register for the spring season please go to:

https://www.wakefieldsoccer.org/registration/register-now/

We look forward to seeing you all in the spring.  Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Thank you,
Thomas Callahan
Director of Registration
