With the announcements that schools will remain closed until May 4, MYSA, BAYS and MIAA are all working on what this means for the spring season. We will be providing updates as we get information over the course of the next month. However, we are still optimistic that we will have our soccer season. This is where the past three years of rain/snow has helped prepare us to be flexible and supportive of one another.
This year, we anticipate the start of the season to be May 9th. BAYS is planning to extend the travel season to go until the end of June and will adjust our schedules accordingly. For In-Town and Instructional, we typically follow a similar schedule, so we will plan for that right now.
For guidance about when to play the season, BAYS is looking to the sources listed below. The BSA along with 53 other towns are working though this together and we appreciate your patience. The season will not start unless all these sources agree that it is safe for children to play outdoor sports this spring.
- Massachusetts Youth Soccer
- Status of schools
- Centers for Disease Control & Mass. Department of Health
- Federal and state authorities
- MIAA – controls high school sports
We will get additional details out by the first week in April.
Thank you to our sponsors who are working with us as well. We GREATLY appreciate your support!
