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 (firstname.lastname@example.org). Learn more about club financial operations here.
Interruptions/Cancelations to BAYS or House League Season
If the BAYS or House league fails to start, or league play is canceled or interrupted, the BSC plans to continue with team activities that are deemed safe by state and local health officials. Team activities could include but are not limited to: Friendlies with other town teams, friendlies with other BSC teams, intrasquad scrimmages, full contact practices, non-contact skill practices, online team practices.
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 Deadline: 9/9/20
