Westford Youth Soccer - Spring Program

Westford Youth Soccer Community,

Once again WYSA is starting to plan for an upcoming soccer season without truly knowing what our world will look like in 4 months. The optimism of a newly approved vaccine program is significantly tapered by the continual rise in positive COVID-19 cases. However, the WYSA board believes that the well-established safety protocols for soccer will allow us to provide a safe environment for the Spring 2021 season. Therefore, it is our intention to provide a soccer program as close to what we offered prior to 2020 as possible. We are planning on having both an In-Townleague for grades K-6, as well as participating in the MYSL travel league for grades 3-12. For both of these programs we intend to allow the kids to play the game of soccer as close to the real game as the state allows; the current mandate specifies that the games can be played without any modifications as long as Mandatory Facial Coverings protocols are followed. We are hopeful that at a maximum this will be the only change to the game that will be in effect come April 2021.

While many of you may wait to register your kids until more information is available, please understand that to participate in the travel league we need to submit rosters by late February, thus dictating that we form our teams by mid-February in order to participate. While we understand some of our members’ hesitancy in signing their kids up for soccer, please be assured that we will do everything in our power to protect our families. We will continue to enforce safety protocols both on and off the pitch, as well as limit exposure to family members on the sidelines. Additionally, we will continue to protect any financial commitment you make to our program. Should events dictate that any part of the soccer season be eliminated, we will refund that portion of fees back to our families. Our goal for this upcoming season is to safely transition back to the game that we all know and love.

Registration is open.  See the posting on our website for important dates.

Look forward to seeing you all on the pitch soon!

Regards,
Westford Youth Soccer Association Board
