NOTE: The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is currently in Phase III of the COVID-19 reopening plan. Phase III does not allow for Moderate Risk Sports (Soccer) to participate in tournament play of any kind. If this remains the current phase as we approach Memorial Day, this event will not run as a tournament. In place of the tournament, an alternative event may be held. This alternative event will comply with all guidelines set forth by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs.
1. ONLINE REGISTRATION:
The Wellesley United Soccer Club is pleased to announce its annual Memorial Day weekend event! We are now into our 39th year and with each year the event seems to get better and better. This event is aimed solely at 2nd and 3rd grade teams. This is a sanctioned 7v7 event, held under the auspices of the Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association. The event is limited to teams comprised of girls and boys under 9 years of age who are playing in U8 or U9. Wellesley is located 20 minutes west of Boston, and all games will be played in Wellesley.
Rosters will be limited to Twelve (12) players (exceptions allowed upon event director approval). All teams must consist solely of players registered with that town for league play. This year applications from all-star and club teams will accepted. FIFA rules will apply. In keeping with the non-results-oriented philosophy that MYSA has adopted for all U-9 play, all teams will play 4 50 minute games (25 minutes per half with 5 minutes at half) teams will be separated into pools of relatively equal competitiveness. This will provide the greatest opportunity for all teams to enjoy a positive experience. Each team will be required to have at least two (2) responsible adults in charge at every game.
To enter your team, please register online by
Contact Dale Carr event director if you have any questions.
The fee is $500, $450 if registered before Feb 14th. We urge you to apply as early as possible. Application does not guarantee acceptance. Acceptance notices will be emailed in early May. Registration fees, minus a $25 credit card processing fee (if applicable), will be returned promptly to those teams that are not accepted. Once acceptance is emailed, the registration fee becomes non-refundable. Check with event directors directly at any time about any concerns about registration status and acceptance.
