In-Town Welcome Letter

 

 

Dear AYS Recreational League Players, Families, and Coaches:

 

Welcome to the Fall 2014 In-Town Season  

 

I want to start with a great big thank you to all the coaches, assistant coaches, age group coordinators and other volunteers, without whom The Attleboro Youth Soccer program would not run.

By now your should have heard from your players coach. If not please contact me at ays_intowndirector@attleborosoccer.com

Announcement!!!!!!!!

I am extremely excited to announce that AYS has partnered up with the Explosion FC soccer club to provide skills training to our U7 and U8 kids.  These practices will be held in academy style with all kids and coaches participating at the same time.  The Explosion coaches will work with the AYS coaches and the kids to teach the kids proper techniques on the ball.  Explosion is the premier soccer program of South Eastern Massachusetts located right here in Attleboro.     

Season Schedule

Our season begins on September 7th and runs through October 26th for all age groups, yes we will play on Columbus Day weekend. November 2nd is reserved as a rain date for U8 and younger. The U9/10 boys and girls, U12 Coed and U14/16 age groups will play 2 additional playoff games to determine the best team in the age group so will play until November 9th.

Additionally this year we will have an award ceremony with trophies awarded in the High School Auditorium out of the weather. The U6, U7 and U8 age groups will have their ceremony on the afternoon of Saturday November 1st (regardless of play potentially extending to November 2nd) and the U9/10, U12 and U14/16 age groups will have theirs the afternoon of November 15th. More details will follow later in the season.

Practices will start after the 1st game of the season, so the week of September 8th. All games and practices will be at the Tilda B. Stone Playground (Dodgeville) located at 700 South Main Street.

Parking:

As many of you will remember from the spring season parking is an issue so please remember the following tips:

  • We ask that all families arrive in 1 car, or if feasible to car pool with your neighbors;

  • Please do not park on route 152, the police will ticket you;

  • Please do not park on the grass area near the monument, there are sprinkler lines that run under there and can be easily damaged;

  • If your game is on the upper fields please park in the tennis courts and near the pool area;

  • If your game is on the lower fields please park in the lower lot and on the hill;

  • Within the tennis court please DO NOT PARK in the blue hashed area in the middle, this is the driveway in and out of the area.  Please form 4 rows of parking facing out of the lot.  There should be 1 row of cars at the opening, an aisle, 2 rows of cars centered on the painted line, an aisle and then a row of cars along the fence closest to the field. Please leave space in front of the portable toilet and the storage container;

  • Make full use of the hill, I will be marking off an aisle with traffic cones down the hill to allow easier access;

  • We will make sure all games start on time so they end on time;

  • I have staggered the start times for games on the lower fields so much parking activity at one time.

***Please remember: No Dogs (no matter how small) are allowed on the fields during practices or games.  Dogs must remain along the outer edges of the fields near the fences and parking lots. ***

NO TOBACCO USE: New this year the Attleboro Recreation Commission has adopted a No Tobacco use policy for all parks and recreational facilities in the city of Attleboro.  So smoking, or the use of chew, is strictly forbidden.   
 

Zero Tolerance Policy

Parents and Coaches, please remember that the Referees officiating your son or daughters game are young players, who themselves are still learning the game, and will make mistakes.  We ask that you DO NOT make any disparaging remarks towards the referees.  If any of our referees feel they are being harassed or taunted, they will stop the game and action will be taken by the AYS In-Town Director to remove anyone who violates the ZERO Tolerance Policy.  For full disclosure of the AYS policies that you agreed to when registering your child, please refer to the AYS website, at www.attleborosoccer.com.

AYS Volunteers:

Please remember AYS is a parent volunteer run organization.  We are always looking for volunteers for coaches, assistant coaches, age group coordinators to help direct people before each game, manning the apparel tables; field and equipment coordinators to help maintain equipment and paint lines on the fields each week. If you did not register as a volunteer when you registered your child please contact me. Also please remember to treat all of our volunteers with respect they are doing their best to help your children.

Play Safe, Play Fair, and Have Fun!

 

Regards

Dan

AYS-In-Town Director
