2022 Nelson Chin Memorial Golf Tournament

Braintree Youth Soccer was extremely excited to take part, and give back, to the 2022 Nelson Chin Memorial Golf Tournament! Whether it was our current President, former President, current Treasurer, and countless former and current volunteers out there golfing, our being the sponsor of a hole, or making our way through the rain onto the course, as we have so many Saturdays on the soccer fields ourselves, it was a great day! To be able to honor and remember our dear friend Nelson Chin out there is something so small compared to his impact on BYS as a volunteer, coach, and President, or his continued commitment as Director of Parks and Rec to our fields and kids, but Nelson did so much more for all the kids and the Braintree community as a whole that we could never thank he or his family (for sharing him with us all those years) enough.

All games are played on Saturday at either East Middle School or Thayer Academy South Athletic Complex. A few evening games are played at Braintree High School for players in 5/6 or 7/8 grade Divisions.

A coach will contact you in late August with information regarding your team and schedule.

Practices are scheduled at the coaches discretion.

Volunteers are needed!

Please consider volunteering as a coach, assistant coach, director or field crew! You don't need to be a soccer expert to coach - and, we pay for your training!

Attention High School Students:
