The Mass Youth Soccer office will send you these materials free of charge. There is a Pass Cards Request Form for requesting passcards.

Your first step is to go to our Clubs section and enter your zip code. A list of the clubs within the mile radius you have selected will appear. You will have to open each one to see if they offer a team in your age group. You can also check their websites which are linked to the clubs.

There is a current age-group listing on our Administators section. Please note that town and club soccer age groups run from August 1st of every year. The ODP program alone classifies age groups by calendar years.

You will need to fill out a single or multiple field insurance form form US Club Soccer. They are found on US Club Soccer’s insurance page.

Scores should be called or emailed to your Age Group Coordinator each Sunday night by 9:00 PM. Everyone should call, not just the winners. That way, we should have the standings and scores posted to the web by Monday morning. A list of the Age Group Coordinators is in the Score Reporting section of the website.

We do not keep results for the 9U & 10U sections.

Games may not be changed or moved, even by mutual consent of the coaches. Games may be moved by the league office in the event that the originally scheduled field is unplayable or unavailable.

There are two exceptions to this rule. All 12U Blue section teams and Division 1 teams are allowed one postponement per season to attend a tournament. These postponements must be requested in advance.

We will also allow a postponement if a significant number of the players have an academic commitment, such as a trip to Washington DC. These must be cleared in advance with the NSL office.

Teams involved in State Cups also may have one postponement of a spring league game.

There could be two reasons for this. The league has a 6-0 cap on goal differential, so if your teams wins by more than that differential only 6 goals will be counted. The other is that a forfeit is involved and forfeit tie break rules are in effect.

That’s up to the referee at the field. He or she is the only person who can determine if the cast might be potentially harmful to either the player or other players on the field.
