COVID-19 Policies - Protecting our MYS Community

Dear Families… This week’s temperatures have all of us here at Marlboro Youth Soccer thinking about Spring!

Just wanted to take a few minutes to let you know what precautions our organization is taking this season to help keep our community safe from COVID-19. Like all local youth sports organizations, Marlboro Youth Soccer (MYS) is required to follow protocols established by the Commonwealth’s Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs, State governing bodies (Massachusetts Youth Soccer), and the City of Marlborough. At our meeting last night, the MYS Board of Directors approved a set of COVID-19 Policies and Procedures that are inclusive of all of these requirements. The full document is available on our website at http://www.marlboroyouthsoccer.org/Page.asp?n=120334&org=marlboroyouthsoccer.org.

Here are just a few of the policies and procedures that will be in place for our upcoming Spring season:

  • Face masks must be worn by all players, coaches, referees, and spectators --- even during active play. Masks must completely cover the nose and mouth, and loop around a participant’s nose and ears. Gaiters and face shields are not permitted.
  • Spectators are limited to 2 adults (Parents/Guardians or chaperones) and siblings of a player. Spectators must also maintain at least 6 feet of distance between spectator groups.
  • Parents/Guardians and all adult volunteers shall not transport athletes that are not immediate family members. Carpooling is prohibited.
  • Sportsmanship (while always encouraged!) will be touchless --- no handshakes / slaps / fist bumps.
  • Players must bring their own ball, water bottle, towel, and PPE (masks, sanitizer, tissues) to each session.
  • All shared equipment (e.g. cones, goals) will be sanitized before and after all clinics and scrimmages.

Parents and guardians play a critically important role in keeping our community safe. It is very important that you monitor the health of your child for fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of smell/taste, or any other COVID-19 symptoms listed at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html. Your child must not come to soccer if they have had contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case in the last 14 days, or are otherwise quarantining under applicable state or local direction. A full list of requirements is available in the MYS COVID-19 Policies and Procedures.

As the MYS COVID-19 Compliance Officer, I invite you to reach out to me directly with any questions, comments, or concerns at . We’re looking forward to an exciting, fun, safe, and healthy season this Spring!

Brian DuPont – VP, Risk Manager, COVID-19 Compliance Officer, Grade 1/2 Co-Director

Please Consider Volunteering with Marlboro Youth Soccer

Hello MYS Families… I hope this message finds you well. While Ghiloni Park may still be covered in snow, please know that our Board of Directors is working very hard to prepare for the upcoming Spring soccer season. In light of the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on all of us, development of this Spring’s program is guided by 3 important goals:

  1. Get kids out and playing soccer!
  2. Keep all program participants safe.
  3. Strengthen our MYS community.

We’re excited to offer programs at all age groups this season, and we’ll have much more to say about safety as our State’s guidance continues to evolve... Today I’d like to take a few minutes to talk with you about being part of our community. As many of you may know, our program is run exclusively by volunteers. All of our coaches, Directors, and other volunteers give up a small bit of their time each week during the Spring and Fall seasons to provide a safe and fun environment for our kids to learn the game of soccer. For me, that started 6 years ago when my son first joined our Kindergarten program, and since that time I’ve found coaching to be an extremely rewarding way to spend time with my kids and to meet many other families and friends in our City.

This Spring’s program might look a bit different from years past, but one thing that’s clear is that our need for adult volunteers will be greater than ever before. In addition to our regular needs for coaches and assistant coaches, each team is required to have a COVID-19 coordinator to oversee compliance with State, local, and our own organization’s health and safety protocols. As a Board, we’re committed to giving you all of the resources and support you’ll need to volunteer in any capacity, and we’re working with our new partners (the Boston Bolts soccer club) to update practice plans, organize clinics, and provide direct instruction to new coaches. So if you’ve ever considered volunteering with Marlboro Youth Soccer and joining our organization, now is a great time to do so… a time when our kids and our community need some healthy outdoor activities the most.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly at with any questions about volunteer opportunities and/or requirements. One of our most immediate needs is help in translating documents, so that we can better support our Portuguese- and Spanish-speaking members.

I look forward to warmer Spring temperatures and a chance to meet each and every one of you soon!

Brian DuPont – VP, Risk Manager, COVID-19 Compliance Officer
