Return to Play - COVID-19

COVID-19 Information

For information on COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines for return to play, please click here to visit Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association's COVID-19 Resource page.  Christie DaRosa is WYSA's COVID-19 Safety Officer.  She may be reached using the email link on the League Contacts page.

The WYSA board recognizes that during these uncertain times, it is difficult to plan activities as we have done in the past. Although we cannot guarantee that the Fall season will take place, every indication we've received from our league affiliate, Mass Youth Soccer, as well as state and local agencies leads us to believe that we will be able to run a soccer program starting in the August/September timeframe. Please be assured that we will follow all recommendations and best practices to keep players, coaches, spectators and referees as safe as possible. We believe soccer can provide great benefits in bringing us all back together again, so we will do as much as we can to ensure this happens.

We also understand that financial commitments may be difficult at this time. The league requires that we submit teams well in advance, so any registrations we receive beyond the stated time frame cannot be guaranteed a spot on a Fall team. As we did this past Spring, if for any reason the season does not take place, your registration fees will be returned to you. Any other impacts to the activities scheduled will be assessed at that time, but we will always strive to be fair in providing compensation in those instances. We hope to see many of you out on the pitch once again.

Sincerely,
Steve Jones, President
Westford Youth Soccer Association

Westford Youth Soccer - Return to Play

Return to Play

Good evening Westford Soccer Families,

Since our last communication several weeks ago, we at Westford Youth Soccer are very optimistic with the Governor's recent announcements that we will once again be able to get onto the pitch in the very near future. However, even as fields begin to open up, we must remain aware that things don't automatically "return to normal". Both Massachusetts Youth Soccer as well as state and local health organizations have enacted new rules and regulations to ensure the safety of all participants, including both parents and players.

To ensure that we remain in compliance with these rules and regulations, the following rule is in effect:

WYSA has not authorized any soccer practices or get-togethers to take place. We as an organization need to set several compliance checks in place, and until that is ready there should be *no* organized practices or team activities  taking place at this time. If you are contacted by a coach from WYSA, please be aware that this is not sanctioned by either our board or Mass Youth Soccer, and is not covered by our liability insurance. Be assured that we are working as quickly as we can to ensure we can start activities both as soon as possible and as safely as possible.

If you are interested in recent activities for return to play as defined by the state, please visit https://www.mayouthsoccer.org/return-to-soccer-activities/ . We hope to pass along more information as well as potential summer activities as soon as possible.

Regards,

Westford Youth Soccer Association Board
Stephen Jones, President
