The May General Meeting for Norton Youth Soccer is scheduled for Tuesday, May 10th at 7:00 at the Yelle School. Topics for discussion include Spring soccer, the Fall Recreational program, and any other organizational issues suggested by the attendees.
NYS would like to inform you of the many recent changes on the Board of Directors. Congratulations to Brian Murphy who was elected President. Congratulations also go out to Mark Anderson, elected as Vice President, Recreational Division. Also, please welcome Melissa Miller, Mike Moniz, and Paul O’Brien as our newest Directors, as well as Dan Sheedy who will be beginning a second term. Finally, the Board would like to thank Bill Lach for his many years of dedicated service. Bill has been instrumental in so many aspects of Norton Youth Soccer including countless hours spent on the Field Restoration Project along with his important contributions as Director of Coaching.
Preparation and planning are already underway for the Fall Recreational season. An enormous amount of planning occurs behind the scenes to make the Fall season successful. Last year, 667 children played on our newly renovated fields. Online registration is now open at the NYS website. Previously registered families have been notified via e-mail. Please help us reach out to new families and kindergarten age children. Registration cost per player will remain the same as last season ($85 per player + $20 volunteer fee per family). Deadline for registering is May 31st. For more information, go to the Fall Recreational page of the NYS website.
NYS is entirely volunteer driven. For a list of volunteer positions, click here. During registration, you will have an opportunity to select a volunteer position. If you are interested in volunteering in other ways, send email to FallRecLeague@nortonyouthsoccer.org. Please consider volunteering and making a difference.
To date, Norton Youth Soccer had invested over $65,000 into the field complex, funds that were used solely for the purposes of field renovation. This past Fall, three restored fields opened up for play. We still have a long way to go. There are many fields in dire need. Phase 2 has officially kicked off with a goal to irrigate additional fields. How quickly we can achieve this will depend greatly on our ability to fund the project. When registering, please consider donating to this effort. Your donation will go a long way in a field complex we can be proud of.
NYS competitive travel teams recently wrapped up winter indoor play. For the recently concluded winter session, four NYS teams were crowned champions. Click here for a news article. Competitive travel teams from U8 to U18 are now several games deep in the Spring season. For years, “home” games have been played in Taunton or Rehoboth. Because of your generosity, for the first time in years, our home games are now played on the newly renovated fields at the Norton Middle School.
- Registration is now open for the NYS summer soccer camp. The camp will run from Monday July 25th to Friday July 29th. A camp brochure is now available at the Summer Camp link at the NYS website.
- The Norton Parks and Recreation Department will once again be offering the U5 Striker Soccer Program. Registration and a program brochure are available on the NYS website.
