Late Fall Recreational Registrations Still Being Accepted

More News 

Late registrations are still being accepted for the Fall Recreational season. Anyone registering after May 31st may be placed on a wait list and will be assigned to a team if/when space is available. A $15.00 nonrefundable late fee will be imposed for each late registration accepted.

Norton's Fall Recreational season is run entirely by volunteers. The season normally runs nine consecutive weekends, starting in early September and ending in early November. Players practice once a week with games on Saturdays at the newly renovated Norton Middle School fields. Your child will experience the fun of playing on a team, friendly competition, and will receive a uniform and a ball.

NYS uses an online registration system for Fall Recreational signups. There are no walk-in signups. The registration link is now available on the Fall Recreational page of the NYS website. Additional program information can be found on that webpage.

** Deadline for registering is May 31st **

Norton boys and girls born 8/1/1997 through 7/31/2007 are eligible. The cost will be $95. Please note this represents the first increase in 5 years and is due to increased maintenance costs. In order to promote and broaden volunteer participation, a $20 volunteer fee will also be added during the registration process. This fee is per family and will be refunded at the end of the season on completion of volunteer service. 

Registration is also open for the NYS Summer Clinic and U5 Striker Soccer program.  Click on the NYS Summer Clinic or U5 Striker links on the NYS website for more details. New this year, the NYS Summer Clinic will offer a second week. 

Finally, the 2011-2012 season marked the second year where the newly renovated fields have been in use by Norton Youth Soccer. As of April 1, 2012, NYS has invested $84,192 into the field complex. A detailed financial breakdown can be found on the Field Restoration page of the NYS website. Recent work has focused on seeding and irrigating Field 8 as well as bringing online an additional well that is needed to not only irrigate Field 8, but also the remaining fields. Field 8 is located on the far right side of the complex and will be large enough for an 11v11 field or several smaller fields. It is our hope that this field will be available for use starting Fall 2012. Unfortunately, the cost of the new well and renovation of Field 8 have all but depleted the Field Restoration account. As many of you have seen, there are still many fields in dire need. The cost to renovate the remaining fields will be significant. Our goal is to renovate all of the fields by 2014. It's also important to note that as fields are restored, our maintenance costs also increase simply because there is more grass to mow and take care of. How quickly we can achieve this will depend greatly on our ability to fund the project. When registering, please consider donating at the Gold ($50), Silver ($25) or Bronze ($10) levels for this phase of the project. Families making donations will be recognized on the Friends of NYS page on the NYS website. Your donation will go a long way in a field complex we can be proud of. For more info on the project, go to the Field Restoration Project page on the NYS website. Thanks for your support.
