NYS August Newsletter

More News 

While many families are enjoying the summer off from soccer, board members and volunteers have been busy over the past few months preparing for the upcoming Fall recreational season. With over 600 players registered, an enormous amount of time and effort goes into the planning and running of this program. Here are some updates:
  • Late registrations are still being accepted. Go to the NYS website and click on Fall Recreational for more details.
  • Teams are currently being formed and should be posted by mid August.
  • Practices are slated to begin the first week of September with Opening Day planned for Saturday, September 11th.
  • A referee clinic will be held for anyone interested in refereeing Fall Rec games. This clinic is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, September 9, 7:00 - 9:00 PM, Yelle Cafeteria. You must be in 7th grade or higher to qualify.
  • As a reminder, players WILL NOT be permitted to play with earrings. Note that this was clearly stated during player registration.
If you have any questions about our Fall program or would like to help in any way, you can email fa ... @nortonyouthsoccer.org.

After many years in the making, NYS plans on opening our newly renovated fields this Fall (Saturday games only). NYS would like to thank all those who have contributed financially and through hard work and dedication. While NYS is closing in on an important milestone in restoring these fields, you will see that many more fields are in desperate need. NYS is always reluctant to raise fees so one way to raise the necessary funds is through fundraising activities. Currently, NYS is partnering with the New England Revolution where NYS will receive a portion of the sale of every season ticket, Four Game package, single game ticket, or Birthday Blast when ordered from the NYS website. Click on the Revs logo on the NYS website to order.

NYS competitive travel teams continue to excel at the highest levels despite being one of the smaller towns population-wise in the area and in the South Coast conference. NYS teams recently wrapped up yet another successful Spring competitive season. Congratulations to the following South Coast Soccer League Champions:
  • U12 Boys Division 1 (Chris Cappellini)
  • U12 Girls Division 1 (Dave Sharpe)
  • U11 Girls Division 1 (Tony Fong)
These champions advanced to the Massachusetts Tournament of Champions which took place in Lancaster MA from June 25 – 27. The U12 Boys advanced to the state championship title game with a 3-0-1 record. Unfortunately, the team fell short losing in the finals 2-0 to Beverly. The U11 girls went undefeated with one win and two ties, narrowly missing the playoffs. The U12 girls were stingy in its defense, but just could not muster enough offense in a very tough bracket. A number of other NYS teams went deep into their South Coast playoffs. For more details, go to the News section at the NYS website.

Finally, there are still a few openings in the U5 Striker Soccer Program that will also run in September. A brochure is available on the NYS website. Click on U5 Strikers Fall Program.
