Spring 2020 Season Cancelled

Hello NSC families,

We regret to inform you that BAYS has cancelled the spring 2020 season.  With all Massachusetts schools being closed for the remainder of the academic year this was of course inevitable.  It means that we must also cancel our Junior Academy (PK-2).  The NA Rec Department also officially cancelled all of their spring sports today.  The NSC Board has been planning for this possibility and we are working on the refund process.  We will update you by the end of next week.   Please see the BAYS cancellation notice below:


Hello All Town Presidents, Treasurers, Registrars, Travel Directors, and Referee Assignors,

It is with great reluctance that I share this news. Based on Governor Charlie Baker’s decision to close Massachusetts schools through June, the Boston Area Youth Soccer League’s Board of Directors has decided to cancel its Spring 2020 schedule.

We have consistently maintained that if the schools were closed many parents would be uneasy about having their children participate in an inter-town travel soccer program. Functionally, many towns noted that if the schools were closed, they would not have access to the field space required to run their clubs. 

This was a tough decision to make, but we believe that it is the right call to keep our children safe.

Regards,
Tony Loftis 
BAYS President


This is of course very disappointing for everyone, especially for our current 8th Graders.  Once the restrictions are lifted we intend to hold our annual 8th Grade celebration picnic.  We also will be sponsoring high school soccer teams in spring 2021!


We hope to see everyone on the fields this fall!
The NSC Board
