Fall 2020 Update

We hope that you have had a chance to relax and enjoy your Summer staying safe, healthy, and active. As an SYS Board, we have been monitoring the ever changing guidelines for soccer from Mass Youth Soccer and other State governing bodies. At our recent board meeting we deliberated on the upcoming Fall season and please see our decision below:

Town Travel League – Midland Area Youth Soccer League (U10 and older)

We will not be participating in any league play this Fall. After considerable discussion and evaluation, we determined that managing the return to play with our volunteer coaches and the significant rule changes for both players and spectators would be challenging for our travel program. We have been in communication with other towns and they also are evaluating their situation with some planning to try and move forward and others making a similar decision to ours. This means that the season for SYS U10 and above travels teams is cancelled for the Fall.

We do not make this decision easily and understand the value of continuing to have activity for the kids especially in a time where there will be little social in person interaction due to virtual school. Please stay tuned and in the very near future you will see some soccer programs that will be available to your kids to keep them training and having fun together in a safe, friendly, and supportive environment this Fall. These activities will be with experienced coaches who have already been working in this environment so are prepared and understand how to provide engaging, educational, and enjoyable soccer activities for your kids.

Our hope and plan is to resume participating in the travel league in the Spring.

In Town Program

We decided to cancel the U4 program for this Fall. The nature of U4 requires a lot of parental involvement and clustering of kids and parents. This would be challenging with the current guidelines as parents really are required to stay away from any activity. We look forward to returning to this program in the Spring.

Our in house U6 and U8 program will continue with some modifications. It will be managed and run by Fortis FC who will provide experienced coaches to deliver an engaging and enjoyable program. The curriculum will provide age appropriate skills based activities with complementary small group scrimmages. This will start after Labor Day weekend and the rules and guidelines at that time will be followed for safety. This will give the players something to look forward to and allow them to get outside for some much needed social interaction and fun soccer activity.

We will be back in touch shortly on the details of what is planned for the U6 and U8 players.

Credits and Refunds

The Sutton Youth Soccer Board has unanimously decided to provide a 100% credit for player registrations for our U4 and U10 and older players. Your credit is available for any future registration. You do not have to take any action as we will automatically set up the credit for you. If you are interested in donating your registration fee to assist us in maintaining costs that continue such as field maintenance, please send that decision to suttonmayouthsoccer@gmail.com. We also are always looking for sponsors and others that are interested and have the means to provide donations in support of our mission of youth soccer for the residents of Sutton.

If you have any questions about this, please email suttonmayouthsoccer@gmail.com NO LATER THAN September 11, 2020. If SYS does not hear from you prior to September 11 your Fall registration will automatically flow to Spring 2021 with no other recourse available.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we plan to move forward together as a community.

We look forward to seeing you out and about on the fields in the near future just in a more manageable training setting this Fall.

Kindest Regards,

Sutton Youth Soccer
Board of Directors
