REGISTRATION INFORMATION BELOW IS FYI, ONLY
*Please be advised that with the season starting Saturday, 9/8/18, any player registered after 9/5/18 will not be able to play until the following week.*
Welcome to 2018 Fall Soccer registration. This is a town-based recreational league for boys and girls in grades K-8 who reside in or attend school in Braintree. Minimum age required is age 5 as of 8/31/2018. The goal of the league is to promote the game of Soccer and to allow everyone to enjoy the game and have fun.
The league is organized into boys and girls divisions by grade. This allows the players to be grouped with others of similar skill level and size, ensuring fairness of play. The divisions are
- B-K (Boys Kindergarten), G-K (Girls Kindergarten), B-1st Grade, G-1st Grade, B-2, G-2, B-3, G-3, B-4, G-4.
- Grades 5/6 and 7/8 are combined into B-5/6, G-5/6, B-7/8 and G-7/8.
The format for the Kindergarten and 1st Grade Divisions is Micro Soccer. This is played on a small field with only 4 players per side, allowing all players an opportunity to touch the ball as much as possible. Games are fast moving and free flowing.
The 2nd, 3rd and 4th Grade Divisions play on medium sized fields with small goals. At this level traditional soccer rules are applied, positional play becomes important and boundaries are enforced.
The 5/6 Grade Divisions and 7/8 Grade Divisions play on larger (5/6) and full-size (7/8) regulation fields. Some of these games even occur at night. This is the big leagues, with a draft, standings and play-offs.
Play begins on the first Saturday after Labor Day in September for all grades. The season ends at the end of October / beginning of November for Divisions K-4, and early- to mid-November for Divisions with play-offs.
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.

Please register early as there are dozens of people who volunteer their time throughout the summer to put the teams together, order uniforms, set schedules, get permits, and perform many other tasks needed in order to get the fall season underway. Players who register late will make those tasks more difficult so we thank you in advance for your cooperation!
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:
Do you miss BYS? Do you still want to play rec soccer? If you are not playing on a high school team then join our HS division. Games are on Saturday mornings at South Middle School-no practices, just games. We began this division in 2015 and had a blast! Watch for more info in the fall...
