While the game looks a little different, our Fall rec season is proving successful with the amended rules for COVID. In addition to our town league, several travel and club leagues are playing as well. This is all good news and sets expectations that we will be able to play in the Spring of 2021.

We have amended our registration fees for the upcoming season, lowering them as the result of suspending our winter training for this upcoming winter. While not offering winter training is unfortunate, as we feel winter training is significant for our player development and on field success, we were unable to secure cost effective facility rental. Thayer will not entertain renting us their gym and BHS advised it is highly unlikely we can use their facility either. With only high-priced private options remaining, and unsure whether or not we would face further restrictions to indoor training, we determined it was better to suspend for the upcoming season.

Moreover, with the current restrictions on the number of individuals on a playing surface, as well as restrictions on what we are able to do for drills and scrimmages, we’ve determined that hosting a substantive tryout process would be difficult. To ensure we are able to place players as appropriately as possible, we will be asking Fall coaches to provide player evaluations. We will use those, along with division directors’ independent evaluations, coupled with travel evaluations from last year, when doing team assembly. While not ideal, we face several restrictions that would preclude us from having a substantive tryout process.

We will be closing registration on 12/31/20.

Again, there will be NO LATE REGISTRATIONS allowed. Full refund, less registration processing fees, will be granted until 1/15/21. Moreover, we will need to order uniforms (more details on that to come) in January. Uniforms are the largest expense of the program. Once ordered, we will be limited to refunding only league dues if the season is canceled. Like Fall recreation, if we play a game, we will not be able to issue a refund.

While this upcoming season is likely to be different, and will follow the rules set forth by MYSA and the commonwealth, we are excited to give our players the chance to play this Spring. Any questions, please email me at braintreetravelsoccer@yahoo.com.
