Covid Update from Mass Youth Soccer and BAYS on 5/20/21

Mass Youth Soccer released another version of updated COVID protocols, bringing them more into alignment with the CDC and Commonwealth of MA EEA guidance.

Important changes in the new protocols are summarized below. Click here for the detailed Mass Youth Soccer COVID protocols:

  • Mask are NOT required for YOUTH participants aged 18 years and under, including players and referees, when engaged in soccer and actively on the field of play. 
    • At any time off the field of play, youth participants also do not have to wear a mask, but only if social distance can be maintained.
      • If social distance cannot be maintained, they must wear a mask. 
  • Masks are still required for ADULT participants aged 19 years and older while actively playing, since social distancing cannot be continually maintained while playing soccer.
  • Mask are NOT required for ADULT participants aged 19 years and older, including players, coaches, and referees, when they are outdoors and can maintain social distance. 
    • At any time social distance cannot be maintained they must wear a mask. 
  • Mask are NOT required for Spectators of any age as long as proper social distancing is maintained between different family groups.
    • At any time social distance cannot be maintained they must wear a mask. 

Please keep in mind, individuals may choose to wear a mask at their, or in the case of a child, the parents’ discretion. As a community, BAYS should continue to support and respect all individuals and avoid any mask shaming or bullying. 

BAYS wants to reinforce that Home Town rules still APPLY. Some town, city, and regional Boards of Health, as well as club organizations may impose more restrictive measures for facial coverings for participants and spectators. If so, these restrictions take precedence and must be respected and followed when games take place under those jurisdictions. 

  • Remind coaches to communicate any specific restrictions to their visiting opponents well in advance of game time.

Additionally, under this new guidance, the restrictions on teams playing multiple opponents in a single day are removed. This opens up the possibility of scheduling make-up games vs different opponents on the same day as regularly scheduled BAYS games.

Any MHYSA Covid-19 related questions, please direct them to our organizations Covid Safety Officer, Brian Giroux [email protected] and club president Tasha Griffin [email protected]

Intown Changes Grades 1/2 starting in Fall 2018

On July 17, 2018, MHYSA board voted on changes to our intown soccer program in accordance to new mandates from our governing body, Mass Youth Soccer.  

Starting Fall 2018, all programs will be grade-based, and therefore we will be splitting 1st and 2nd grade.  We will also continue to divide by gender also starting in 1st grade, just as we do in travel.  Therefore, 1st grade boys will play against each other, as will 1st grade girls, 2nd grade boys and 2nd grade girls.

The other change is by Fall 2019, all grades 2nd and lower must be playing 4v4 without a goalie.  In order to make this transition as smooth as possible, we are going to implement some changes this fall, and the rest for Fall 2019.
-Starting Fall 2018, 1st grade will play 4v4 without goalies.  There are some rule changes that will be posted shortly under our intown rules tab.  1st grade will also continue to use a size 3 soccer ball, as they did in kindergarten.  However the weekly schedule will remain the same as the former U8 schedule.  There will be 1 practice during the week and 1 game on Saturday at 9:00 or later that will be officiated by a referee.
-There are no changes for 2nd grade this year.  They will continue to play 6v6 with a goalie for Fall 2018 and Spring 2019.  However, starting in Fall 2019, 2nd grade will begin playing 4v4 soccer.
