Alcohol, Drug, Tobacco Policy
Westford Youth Soccer Association has a zero-tolerance policy regarding the use of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco products at any WYSA event.
We are a drug-free organization at all times.
Alcoholic beverages, tobacco, and drugs (including marijuana and misuse of prescription medication) are not permitted at any WYSA event, including practices and league games;
No coach or volunteer shall participate in any WYSA activity while under the influence of drugs or alcohol; and
â€‹Smoking or use of tobacco products is not permitted in or around youth sports practices or games. Tobacco products include smokeless products, E-cigarettes and vaping. Chewed, Puffed or Inhaled, Tobacco Kills!
Update 2-Apr-2020: At this time all games are suspended through at least May 3rd. Please be assured that all involved leagues are meeting regularly to explore options and different scenarios. At this time we are unable to provide specific information regarding the start of the season but will notify all players and families as soon as there is anything definite.
Parents, players, and coaches of Westford Youth Soccer;
As with many organizations across the state and the country, Westford Youth Soccer is tracking the impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) as it relates to your participation in soccer for this upcoming Spring season. Our primary concern is the health and well-being of all participants, match officials and spectators over the next several months. Since we are not experts in the field of infectious diseases, we will be carefully monitoring and following guidance as provided by the Westford Board of Health, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, and the Middlesex Youth Soccer League as well as the US Soccer Federation. To that end, we would like to pass along the following information:
All activities being hosted at a Westford Public School location, such as coaching clinics and player practices, have been canceled for the next 30 days. This is per the direction provided by Westford Public Schools.
Effective today, Massachusetts Youth Soccer is suspending all affiliated and sanctioned soccer activity statewide through May 3rd. This means that all Westford soccer programs (including practices and games), both in-town as well as travel, will be suspended until at least that date. In addition to formal practices, there should be no teams holding informal get-togethers either (we’ve heard reports that players have been seen on Jack Walsh field -- that field has not been opened by the town, so there should be no one using that facility). While we understand this will be frustrating to some people, this is being done to ensure the safety of the entire Westford community.
Many organizations have posted great information regarding good health habits, so I won’t repeat them here. Please visit Westford’s web page on the COVID-19 pandemic if you have any additional questions:
As we obtain any further information, we will pass along as soon as possible.
