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
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!
Parents - please do not allow your children to play on the soccer goals. The soccer goals are designed to be used in the game of soccer and not to be used as a play area.
Hanging from the top bar of the goal, doing chin-ups, playing with or walking in the netting and other similar activities pose a safety risk as the goals can tip over or cause other injuries when used in this manner.
There are many documented cases of children ranging in age from very young to high school students who were fatally injured while playing on goals. Please discuss this with your players and their siblings.
Pets are not permitted at the Westford Academy Turf Field or any Westford Rec Department fields including Jack Walsh, Old Nab (Captain Hamilton), Frost, and Community Fields (Nutting Road). This is a Town of Westford Ordinance or in the case of Westford Academy a school policy.
Parents - if you bring your pets to soccer games or practices at Blanchard please follow these guidelines:
Please keep animals on a leash (and keep the leash at a reasonable length)
Please keep animals away from the sidelines of the field so they don't distract/scare the players
Particularly on the fields with younger players please keep your pets away from the action
Please clean up after your pets
Please control your pets so they don't run up to people
For travel players – many towns do not allow pets on the fields so you may want to check the town’s soccer website to see if they allow pets. For HS Age teams the NVYSL League prohibits pets from all games.
Thank you for your cooperation!
