Important Announcements

MYSA Announces Suspension of Spring Soccer
As of this March 13, 2020, the Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association announced the suspension of all affiliated and sanctioned soccer activities statewide through April 15th due to the evolving COVID-19 situation. For MYSA member organizations (towns, clubs and leagues) this includes, but is not limited to: all games, practices, clinics, training, tournaments, in-person meetings and Coaching Education Courses.

To be clear, what this means for Sharon Soccer is the following:

The start of Rec Soccer will be delayed until April 18th at the earliest

The start of Travel Soccer activities will be delayed through at least April 15th.

There will no practices of any kind (either indoor or outdoor) nor any games prior to and including April 15th.

U8 Teams participating in indoor soccer leagues at Forekicks that have been organized by the Sharon Soccer Association are prohibited from attending any games prior to April 15 regardless of whether Forekicks suspends play.

Other teams participating in leagues or tournaments that are composed of Sharon Soccer players and coaches but were not organized by the Sharon Soccer Association are strongly discouraged from continuing to participate in games regardless of whether play is suspended by the league or tournament.

We will continue to monitor the situation and remain in contact with the South Shore Soccer League and MYSA regarding the possible resumption of soccer activities in the second half of April. As soon as we know more, we will share that information with everyone. In the meantime, should you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact me.

President, Sharon Soccer Association
