We have use of the Martin School gym this year so you will need to have regular sneakers or indoor soccer cleats. Outdoor cleats will not be allowed in the gym.
Each player will need a ball, shin pads and a water.
Below is the link for the spring season schedule. The majority of teams have 4 away games and 4 home games. There are play-offs for the U-11 and above teams that qualify. For U-10 and below there are end of the season frienship tournaments. This year, some teams have games on the islands (Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket) which will obviously require a greater level of effort than in the other games. Please support your coaches in that effort. The schedule link is:

Just a Little Soccer Boy
He runs toward the goal with his heart pounding fast.
Dribbling the ball and hoping to make it past.
Mom and Dad cannot help him, he moves all alone.
A goal at this moment would send the other team home.
The ball meets his foot; he kicks and it misses.
There is a groan from the crowd, with some boos and some hisses.
A thoughtless voice cries,, "Take out the bum."
Tears fill his eyes; the game's no longer fun.
So open your heart and give him a break.
For it's moments like this, a man you can make.
Keep this in mind when you hear someone forget.
He's just a little boy and not a man yet.
