Methuen Soccer misses you!

We miss you!
We are still hopeful to be able to offer a summer program but in the meantime, we highly encourage everyone to stay active - mentally and physically. Please check out the following offerings. There really is something for everyone while staying safe!

Tuesday, April 21, 2020

Good evening everyone. We hope this email finds you all healthy and well.

Like many other organizations, MYSA has been in a holding pattern for the last month. With Governor Baker's announcement today of school closures for the rest of the school year, it is with heavy hearts that we have no choice but to cancel the spring 2020 soccer season.

We are planning to have summer camp! August 3-7. Registrations are open on our website.

Please take advantage of some of our online resources available. We will continue to send/post information. There is great content available for free on https://soccerparentresourcecenter.com/. MA Youth Soccer has been providing videos and the New England Revolution are planning more player Q&A's. Good stuff.

We are especially sad for our 8th graders as this would have been their last season with us. We will provide a full refund to those players. Our U4 Tiny Tykes will be contacted directly by Challenger. U6, U8, G4, G6 and G8 7th graders, a credit will be applied to your account to use in a future season. Transitioning your membership to the next season will help us remain financially stable and cover expenses we have already incurred for spring 2020. All revenue goes back into our operational costs.

We know that the last weeks have been a trying time for all of us. We sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding while we worked to figure out this path for MYSA.

MYSA is a labor of love for all involved. This organization was started by people who love soccer, kids, and the community and continues to be run by people who cherish those same things. We owe our success to all of you and to our dedicated volunteer staff.

We hope you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy. We are sad now but we look forward to seeing you all in the near future.

While the season is on hold, we're still excited about soccer! MYSA has just partnered with the Soccer Parenting Association and we're bringing their resources right to you FOR FREE! To learn more and activate your membership, please read Skye's welcome letter below.

We look forward to seeing you all again soon!

Welcome to the SoccerParentResourceCenter.com!

Methuen Youth Soccer understands the importance of engaging and educating soccer parents and has therefore secured a club-wide membership to the SoccerParentResourceCenter.com, the parent education platform from the Soccer Parenting Association. You now have complete and free access to the interviews, articles, webinars, e-books, courses and amazing community of level-headed parents at the SoccerParentingResourceCenter.com.

The mission of the Soccer Parenting Association is to inspire players by empowering parents.

  • We believe youth soccer parents will be difference makers when it comes to improving the game.
  • We believe when parents seek information about how to best support their player, great things will happen.
  • We believe a collaborative environment between coach, parent, club, and player is in the best interest of player development.
  • We believe a strong and supportive community of level-headed and like-minded parents and coaches will inspire players.

Like you, I am a soccer parent. I am also a former professional player, collegiate coach, and active youth soccer coach, speaker and coach educator. I am positive that the information you now have access to on the SoccerParentResourceCenter.com platform will help your child thrive and feel inspired- on the field and in life.

Dear MYSA families,

The MYSA Board wishes everyone good health.

We are reaching out with the latest update regarding the spring 2020 soccer season, however, things may change as the situation evolves.

Although MASS Youth Soccer suspended all soccer activities until 4/27, Governor Baker has suspended school until 5/4. At this time, we are planning the season to start on 5/4.

The Board continues to work with Essex County Youth Soccer and MAYS to schedule the season and plan refunds as needed.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Stay Safe,

Danielle Osorio

FAQs

What if I'm having trouble registering on the website?

We have a PDF picture tutorial with step-by-step instructions available on our website that walks you through creating an account and registering your player once you have your member account. We recommend using a desktop or laptop computer for registration. http://www.methuensoccer.org/town#Reg

How do I know if I'm registered correctly for the Grades 3-11 Level?

- If you DID NOT register when Spring Registration opened between 9/15/19-12/1/19 (even if you played for the fall season) [Registration is SINGLE SEASON ONLY for ALL players.]...YOU ARE NOT REGISTERED.

- If you DID NOT submit your grade verification (or submit it correctly) [you can use the Inifinite Campus account by taking a screenshot of your childs info from the TODAY menu, a CURRENT YEAR report card or a CURRENT YEAR progress report that shows your childs name, grade, school and school year on it and email it to our registrar at registrar@methuensoccer.org or drop box it at https://www.dropbox.com/request/9gWjEhB7oLAL3ovh7aNe]...YOU ARE NOT REGISTERED.

- If you are NEW TO THE SPRING SEASON (this means you did not register and play in the fall) and you have not also sent your head shot photo [a school picture or a home picture with a solid background from the shoulders up] or upload a birth date verification item [birth certificate or passport] to your new member account in addition to your grade verification...YOU ARE NOT REGISTERED.

What if I'm still unsure if everything's in (aka 'I think I did it all but can't remember now')?

Please email our Registrar, Ann, to find out and she'll look everything up for you. registrar@methuensoccer.org

What should the Infinite Campus Screenshots look like?

Hello MYSA families,
This is the last week of practices. We do not have any gym access starting 10/28 and in keeping with the state's recommendations of ending outdoor activities by dusk, we just don't have any significant amount of time to hold a productive practice. We do appreciate your understanding as we navigated this incredibly challenging season. Last games are still scheduled for 11/2 and 11/3.
An exciting opportunity for the winter has just landed in our backyard. ECYFL (Essex County Youth Futsal League) has recently added a new location - 46 Stafford Street in Lawrence. The old site of Maulden Mills. Futsal is a much better alternative to indoor soccer and we'd love for you to come check it out at the Open House on Sunday, 11/3 from 3p-5p. More information to follow but the first session starts on 11/17!
As always, thank you.
