As a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, and the decision to keep schools in Massachusetts and Rhode Island closed for the remainder of the year, Seekonk Soccer has elected to call off its Spring 2020 Black Goose Season.

While we are extremely disappointed in the outcome, we understand that circumstances for safe gameplay do not currently exist. We feel this is the most responsible decision we can make for our players and families while look ahead towards planning for fall. 

The full statement by the Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association on Coronavirus (COVID-19) can be found by clicking here.

Seekonk Youth Soccer (SYS) is a non-profit community based youth soccer organization. Our mission is to help develop our community’s youth through an enjoyable experience centered around the game of soccer. We believe that soccer can be used to assist in character development through good sportsmanship and teamwork and promoting healthy lifestyles through physical fitness and organized activities.

As a 100% volunteer based organization, we are truly a community driven organization. Working with children kindergarten age and up, we have a number of opportunities for recreational enjoyment and competitive play at most levels.

We encourage you to utilize our website often, follow us on Facebook and volunteer as opportunities exist.

For time sensitive issues, questions, comments or concerns - please contact us via email at [email protected].

Recreational & Competitive Registration

Registration for Spring 2020 Black Goose Competitive Soccer is currently closed. Seekonk Soccer is not running a spring soccer league as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Registration for Fall 2020 Recreational and Black Goose Competitive Soccer will open in May 2020. Details to follow!

Black Goose uniform changes for spring! Since entering Superliga, we have faced multiple teams with light blue jerseys. Rules state that the home team must change their jerseys in the event teams with similar kits compete Rather than having our players wear uncomfortable and ill-fitting pinnies over their uniforms, we have decided on a low-cost pink/navy jersey for all teams to wear during HOME games only beginning in April. The light blue jersey will still be worn when competing away. A new home jersey in pink/navy and black warm-up tee are now required as part of your kit. After much feedback from families, we are also changing socks from light blue to navy blue. These are all required in time for April. The only required item for Winter Training at Wheeler is the black warm-up jersey. Updates will be coming to our Black Goose store at DMK Sports.


    Volunteers Needed

    We currently have board positions open. Some positions only require a few hours of your time each month and others are more involved. If you are thinking you can help out, please stop in to one of our monthly meetings and we can discuss these opportunities in more detail.

    Current board positions open include:

    Field Assistance
    We are always looking for individuals to assist our Field Director with the setup and takedown of the fields for game weekends throughout our fall and spring seasons. If you are interested in helping us, please reach out to our president at [email protected].

    Recreational Director
    We are actively looking for a well-organized volunteer to assist our current Recreational Director for the upcoming fall season. Aided in part by the Registrar and President, this volunteer position is responsible for the coordination and oversight of our fall program.

    CORI Director
    The CORI administrator oversees the background check process for incoming and returning coaches in accordance with Mass Youth Soccer and US Soccer guidelines to ensure the safety and well-being of the children in our program. The process is entirely managed online by US Soccer. It is the CORI Director's responsibility to assign coaches to teams upon approval and act as an intermediary for sporadic issues that may come up between the applicant and MA Youth Soccer during the application and approval process.

    Reminder: Seekonk Youth Soccer is 100% volunteer driven. Without volunteers we cannot possibly support all of the great programs we offer all year long.


    Board Meetings

    All are welcome to attend Seekonk Youth Soccer board meetings. All meetings are be held on the first Monday of every month at the Aitken Elementary School at 7 pm.

    Complaints or Concerns?

    All complaints or concerns regarding the soccer program should be directed to the President of the league via email [email protected] or other writing. The complaint/concern will be taken under advisement by the Board of Directors and be added to the agenda at the next Board Meeting.
