  • For participants aged 19 years and older, when engaged in soccer activities outdoors a face covering must be worn while actively playing.
  • Players are not required to wear a mask outdoors while on the sideline or in a huddle if proper social distance is maintained. If social distance cannot be maintained masks must be worn.
  • Coaches and Referees are not required to wear a mask if they are outdoors and can social distance. If at any time social distance can not be maintained, a mask must be worn. Referees age 18 and younger do not need to wear a face covering while on the field of play officiating a game.

Thank you to all involved in Pepperell Youth Soccer for following our COVID-19 safety protocols and keeping kids active and on the fields since June 2020!

Welcome to the Spring 2021 Season

As we get back onto the fields for our Spring 2021 soccer season, our primary focus remains the health and safety of our players, coaches, staff, and spectators. The pandemic has presented a unique set of challenges and we thank you for your continued support. As the guidelines from both the Commonwealth and Mass Youth Soccer continue to evolve, you will find the latest information on our COVID-19 Protocol page. Until Mass Youth Soccer outlines an updated policy, masks are still required to be worn by all players, coaches, referees, and spectators at all times.

We strive to create an environment of positive reinforcement and respect. Please review our Code of Conduct, which outlines the expected behaviors of all who attend our soccer activities. As a reminder, pets and smoking/vaping are not permitted on the fields or in the spectator areas.

Thank you again for your continued support – see you on the fields!

Return to Soccer Protocols – Key Reminders

As the Fall season winds down, we want to thank you for your commitment to ensuring our young athletes have been able to continue to participate in soccer.

We are incredibly grateful and proud of every coach, parent, referee and administrator who have not only adapted to game modifications, additional safety measures and an increased administrative load, but have committed to providing safe, inclusive, affordable and fun environment for our Pepperell Soccer families. THANK YOU!
