News and Updates

Fall 2020 Season


Overview
The state of Massachusetts has classified soccer as a moderate risk sport. This classification allows the Brookline Soccer Club to move forward with plans for a Fall 2020 Season and to place teams in the BAYS Town Travel League. The BSC will follow a strict set of COVID-19 Policies developed by Mass Youth Soccer and the Brookline Health Department. BAYS is planning for a 10 game season starting 9/12. There is still uncertainty as to how the fall season will unfold, but the BSC is committed to forming teams that will train (1-2x/week) and compete at the least restrictive level allowed by BAYS, Mass Youth Soccer and the Town of Brookline. The BSC Fall Season will start on 9/7/2020 and conclude 10 weeks later on 11/14/20.

***Warning: The BSC has a 6 day window to register players and form teams so that we can make the BAYS deadline. Returning players must register by Wednesday, 8/12.***

Refund Policy and Financial Aid
Registration fees are non-refundable. In the event that programming is canceled, interrupted or altered, the BSC will apply any saved expenses towards reducing Spring 2021 fees.  To apply for financial aid please contact BSC Registrar, Ben Peters (benpeters@brooklinesoccer.org).

All returning players that register by 8/12/20 are guaranteed a roster spot. We’ll use tryout data (Spring 2019) and coach assessments (Fall 2019) to form our Fall 2020 rosters. If a returning player chooses not to participate this Fall we ask that you email BSC Registrar, Ben Peters by 8/12/20.

New Players in Grades 4-8 

New players wishing to join a BSC team should fill out the sign up form below. Once we have placed returning players, we will assess new players in grades 4-8 and offer open spots to those who qualify. Player assessments will take place during the week of 9/7/20. Players will be notified of results and provided registration instructions by 9/11/20.

Registration Deadline: 9/1/20


New Players in Grade 3 - BSC House League

The BSC lacks confidence that the BAYS League will include a 3rd grade division this fall. The BSC, like all the other town programs in our region, had no way of executing a safe and equitable tryout prior to the fall season. Therefore, the BSC will create a Third Grade House League as a bridge towards the Spring 2021 season.

  • Registration: Registration will be open from 8/6/20 to 9/9/20. Registration fee is $225 + $15 t-shirt for games.
  • Anyone needing financial aid should email a request to BSC Registrar, Ben Peters prior to registering.
  • Format: Ideally 7v7 but this can be adjusted to a smaller sized format (5v5) if needed to form an appropriate number of teams for league play (4-8 teams).
  • Coaches: Parent Volunteer with the assistance of BSC Technical Directors. TD’s to lend coaching support at practices and games.
  • Practices: 1-2x/week depending on availability of field space. Practices will start the week of 9/14.
  • Games: Sunday afternoons - 10/4, 10/11, 10/18, 10/25, 11/1, 11/8 and 11/15. 25 min halves with BSC Referees.
  • Roster Formation: Attempt to form equally competitive teams by distributing players by birth date. The BSC can update rosters after the first week of practices to fix any unbalanced competitive arrangements. 

Registration Deadline: 9/9/20
