Spring 2021 Registration is Open!

Pepperell Families:
Our league, NVYSL, is having ongoing discussions, with signs of being open to a travel season. We will be finalizing our position on this at our February Board Meeting. Please stay tuned for further communication on this topic by mid-February.
In the meantime, registration is now open (all age groups) for the Spring 2021 soccer season. Regardless of our decision on travel we will have a season in some form.
To register please go to https://www.pepperellsoccer.org/register where you will find instructions and other important information.
Note that we are now using TeamSnap as our registration platform.
If there are any questions or concerns regarding the registration process you may contact registrar@pepperellsoccer.org.
We look forward to getting the kids back out on the pitch this spring.

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!

Below is a quick video with reminders of protocols to help mitigate the risk of COVID-19:

Fall Soccer is Back – Registration is Open!

As many of you know the Board of Directors of Pepperell Soccer has been working to bring soccer back in a safe and healthy manner since early this summer.
After the summer clinics, the PYSL Board needed to decide about the fall season. Based on guidelines presented by Mass Youth Soccer, the PYSL Board voted unanimously to keep the entire Pepperell Soccer program within our borders and not participate in a Nashoba Valley Youth Soccer League (NVYSL) schedule. This is not a decision that we took lightly but feel
that this is the best path forward as a responsible community partner.
The final details are still being worked out, but
the fall season for Grades 3-8 will have the following framework:
1.     All age groups (3/4, 5/6, 7/8) will be split into Coed Teams of similar size.
2.    Format will be small sided games (6v6 or 7v7) to ensure we can meet the capacity and spacing guidelines.
3.   Games will be played in Pepperell on Saturdays and teams will have one practice
during the week.
4.   All COVID-19 guidelines put forward by Mass Youth Soccer will be adhered to. The current guidelines may be found at mayouthsoccer.org/returntosocceractivitiespdf/
We are planning to play up to 8 games this fall with the first games tentatively scheduled for Saturday September 12th. In order for us to succeed in getting this season started, we need to understand how many participants we will have.
Our In-Town U6 and U8 seasons will also be taking place this fall, with first games scheduled for Sunday September 13th.
Registration is currently open and space for the Fall program may be limited. Please sign up at https://www.pepperellsoccer.org/register/ at your earliest convenience.
We intend to hold player evaluations and placements after the fall season in hopes of participating in an NVYSL travel season in the spring of 2021
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us, we are also planning to hold an information session once we finalize more of the details.

Summer Program 2020

Registration for the summer clinics is now open.  As a reminder – this program is only available for players that will be in our grade 3/4, 5/6, 7/8 age groups headed into the fall 2020 school year.
Capacity for these clinics is limited by regulations and will not allow for spectators at any age group.  Success of this program will require a partnership between families, players, coaches, and the Pepperell Soccer board, so please review the details provided in the link below.
Procedures, details and registration can be found here:

COVID19 Update

Dear Parents,

I want to open this letter with sincere gratitude for your patience since we first announced that Pepperell Soccer would be suspending all soccer related activities. We also appreciate so many of you taking the time to thoughtfully respond to the recent survey we put out a few weeks ago.

We’ve been closely monitoring the situation and on Thursday 4/30 The Board of Directors for Pepperell Soccer held a special teleconference meeting and has reached the decision to not participate in a planned schedule of travel games or in-town games for the Spring of 2020.

This decision has resulted in 3 options as we go forward:
Default: If you do nothing by May 31st, a family credit will be applied to your Sports Manager Account
Option 2: Families can request a refund by May 31st by contacting me directly using “Refund” in the email subject. (president@pepperellsoccer.org) and provide the player’s name and age group (eg u6,u8, 3/4 , etc)
Option 3: Families may choose to contribute their registration fee as a charitable donation to PYSL. You can contact me by May 31st using “Donation” in the subject (president@pepperellsoccer.org)

For those families that have ordered uniforms, they will be available by the end of this week. Details and logistics on how to get them will be coordinated individually with those families.

The mission of Pepperell Soccer is and will continue to be, to provide a safe and healthy environment for all children in the town of Pepperell to participate. With that mission in mind we will continue to work on ideas and programs that could be offered to the kids interested if it is safe to do so. Any announced programs we could offer will need to be in compliance with safety regulations, so we will continue to monitor the situation and guidelines that are provided.

Please continue to stay safe and positive

Sincerely,

David White
President – Pepperell Youth Soccer
