Fall Rec and Black Goose Soccer registration is now closed.
It is with a heavy heart that we must announce the postponement of the Fall Recreational Soccer season until spring of next year. On Friday, August 7th, the state of Massachusetts further restricted public gatherings to 50 individuals or less. We have struggled throughout the summer to modify expectations for our fall program to the ever-changing mandates from the state and our governing body, the Mass Youth Soccer Association. As you know, we are 100% volunteer-driven. We do not feel we have the resources, field time or means to adequately run our program for the number of children registered while adhering to the current safety guidelines. As such, we have made the decision to postpone the season until we can safely and effectively manage a program of this size.
All children who are wait-listed for Fall Rec Soccer will remain so until spring.
If your child is also registered for our Black Goose Competitive Program, they will remain wait-listed until the end of August. As of today, we do expect to run limited practices and scrimmages for fall. As should have been communicated by your coaches last week, there is no Black Goose league affiliation for fall. Participation will be limited to scheduled practices in small groups and small-sided scrimmages on weekends as they are permitted. Registration for fall is now closed and will remain so to new players. We will not be accepting more new players into the Black Goose program until next spring.
Please understand that our decisions for fall have not been easy. We understand any frustration this may cause you and your families, and apologize for the inconvenience. Please continue to be safe and we will look forward to seeing you next spring!
