ASA Return to Soccer

Updated Sept 11, 2020

We are thrilled to announce that registration for Fall 2020 Soccer for grades 1-8 is NOW OPEN.

  • Practice for grades 5th-8th begins Sept 12th.
  • Practice for grades 1st-4th begins Sept 19th.

As always, the safety and well- being of our players, coaches, and volunteers is the number one priority to ASA. ASA soccer activities will be COVID-modified following Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association Return to Soccer Guidelines. The number of spectators will be limited, and each team/age group will have assigned COVID-19 coordinators to assist teams in safe soccer activities.

Important

All players must have a signed release of liability waiver before they are allowed to enter the field. The signed waiver must be returned to their field coach or an ASA board member.

Also, please be sure to review the list of rule modifications.
