Given the evolving health concerns of our soccer community the 2020 Massachusetts Youth Soccer Annual General Meeting (AGM), originally scheduled for Saturday, March 14, 2020 in Leominster, MA, will be postponed.
This decision has been made in accordance with the guidance of public health and medical professionals as well as the ongoing acceleration of the coronavirus in towns in which our soccer families reside. The recent state of emergency declaration by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts was also a factor in the decision since we endeavor to exercise caution on behalf of our soccer community.
Your Board of Directors is working on alternatives with regard to the three main components of the AGM agenda: 1) election of an Officer and Directors, 2) training support on US Soccer Connect from Stack Sports and 3) collaborative efforts on standardized Tolerance Policies and Codes of Conduct. Once we have an alternative finalized we will communicate this to all member organization leaders.
All of us were really looking forward to this innovative annual meeting format providing our members with the opportunity to learn, share and be heard. As noted above we will develop alternatives to help us accomplish our goals.
We’d like to thank all of our Mass Youth Soccer member organizations, families, staff and volunteers, for your ongoing support as we manage our programming given the current health environment. The safety and security of our soccer community is, and always will be, our highest priority!
