Welcome to the Wakefield Soccer Association – Wakefield, MA

The Wakefield Soccer Association strives to provide a quality recreational, youth soccer experience for all of our members. We believe that good sportsmanship and a desire to coach, play, or watch soccer in a way that honors the game, are the cornerstones of that experience. In doing so, we aim to create a lifelong appreciation of the game by actively seeking to promote soccer to the youth of Wakefield.

 

Returning to Soccer Activities 

June 12, 2020

Wakefield Soccer Association is NOT at this time, or on June 15, 2020, involved in any organized soccer-related activities with its coaches, referees, and/or players.  Even though Mass.gov and MYSA, are allowing youth sports to return to activities with significant restrictions during Phase 2 of reopening, WSA is not.

The following section, MYSA Guidelines, will allow all of our members to best understand the limitations and precautions needed for returning to soccer activities.  WSA is eager to get back out on the fields with our members but we will do so, safely and properly.

Please stay posted for when Wakefield Soccer Association will be properly prepared for a return to soccer-related activities.

WSA – COVID-19 Update

Dear Wakefield Soccer Association Families and Friends,

I hope this message finds you and your family healthy and well. I wanted to take this opportunity to provide you with an update of Wakefield Soccer Association (WSA) and how this relates to the start of the Spring 2020 season. The ongoing decision to delay the start of all youth soccer sports has been driven by a few different factors, The State of Massachusetts imposing a stay at home advisory, the Town of Wakefield’s closure of all fields, parks, and recreational areas and school administration has closed all schools.

For our Travel players, ECYSA has delayed the start of the season along with Mass Youth Soccer Association placing all youth soccer activities on hold until and including Sunday, May 3, 2020.

Our in-town programs, Tots, Pre K – Kinder, and Grades 1-2 Academy, fall under WSA’s structure and guidelines.  Taking all of the above information into account, these programs will also not kick off until after the postponement date of Sunday, May 3, 2020.

Our Director of Coaching, Mackenzie Arment, has spent the last couple of weeks putting together the framework for at-home technical skills for our players to stay active and sharp with their soccer skills during this time: https://www.wakefieldsoccer.org/training-at-home/.  Moving forward, the plan will be to send out an updated curriculum periodically and Mackenzie will continue with this approach until circumstances change.

WSA’s finance committee, as well as the board of directors, have met virtually to discuss the spring season and how to best proceed.  As of right now, the plan is to continue our holding status.  In the event we are allowed to kick off our spring season at the beginning of May, as currently outlined, we feel as though our members will be afforded, with a few changes, a near-normal soccer experience.  Additionally, we will determine how to best provide refunds for missed sessions.

On behalf of the WSA Board of Directors and members of the Finance Committee, I would like to thank you all for your continued support during this time. We are committed to being a part of keeping your child healthy, focused and above all else positive during this whole situation. We are all on “One Team” as we work through this together.

Stay Healthy,

All the best,

David Dube’
