District Select Program Update - July 8, 2020
On July 6th, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts updated their Phase 3, Step 1 Guidelines for Youth Sports.
Pursuant to the updated guidelines, Soccer is classified as a High Risk activity and therefore only permitted for Level 1 Play: “Individual or socially distanced group activities (no-contact workouts, aerobic conditioning, individual skill work, and drills)”
Based on this updated information, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the District Select Program for 2020.
As the Commonwealth Massachusetts continues it’s gradual reopening in phases, Mass Youth Soccer will be providing individual players, teams, programs and clubs across the state with opportunities to get players back on the field in a safe environment in alignment with updated guidelines provided by the State.
Although we are unable to host soccer games at our facility during Phase 3, Step 1, Massachusetts Youth Soccer is excited to expand our Summer Training Center offerings for players entering grades 3-12 in the fall of 2020.
Tryouts and Tryout Registration (required to be placed on a team)
Given the delay in getting back on the fields the tryout process for 2020 will not be able to take place. The following procedures will apply:
- Players who played a full 2019 summer DSP season will be provided a roster spot on the same team (one year older) for this summer.
- Players who did not play in the 2019 summer DSP season will be placed on waitlist and placed on teams where spaces are available. We will try our best to place players as needed.
All interested players past and new must be registered in the system in order to be placed on a ream. The link to use is the one used for tryouts. Even though tryouts will not be taking place we must use this link to get players into the system to be placed on a team. Returning players will have accounts from last year that can be used. Please be sure to update the player’s shirt size, based on unisex sizing. New players will establish an account and they must also provide a shirt size, based on unisex sizing. Once registered and after being placed on a team will the parent receive a confirmation email that calls for payment.
