Fall 2022 Registration is Open

Registration is now open for our Fall 2022 Milton Soccer programs.  Please register with the "Register" button above or use the following link:  https://secure.adminsports.net/miltonmasoccer 

About our Programs:

  • PRE-K: The Pre-K program is open to kids age 3 through 5.  The kids are engaged in fun themed sessions — Paw Patrol, PJ Masks, Super Monsters, etc — conducted by professional instructors from Hermes Lima Soccer Academy and will run on Saturdays and Sundays. Due to increased popularity of this program, registrants will no longer be able to select a day/time.  The kids learn some basic fundamentals , like dribbling, some passing and shooting, all in a fun environment and being a bit silly. There are no teams involved but rather a group of kids kicking, chasing and having fun with soccer balls.  There are no friend requests in the PreK league. During registration once we reach our player limit you will be placed on a waitlist.
  • K-2+ LEAGUE:  The K-2+ program is open to kids in grades Kindergarten through 3rd grade and is offered in the fall and spring.   This program runs on Saturdays or Sundays for 60 minutes.  Each week features a skills session followed by a controlled game.  All training is supervised with professional instruction.  K-2+ is open to all Milton residents and students of all Milton Schools.  You must register on time to have any player and coach requests considered (one player and coach request limit per player).  All games are played in Milton.
  • TRAVEL LEAGUE: Grades 3-8, games on Saturdays (5 home and 5 away games), weekday practices in the fall and spring and play in the BAYS league.  Spring evaluations will be used to form two even competitive teams in grades 3 & 4; the other teams in these grades will be as balanced as possible.  In grades 5-8, teams will be leveled (placed based on external and coach evaluations).

Updates to SafeSport

Due to changes in the US Center for SafeSport and US Soccer Federation policy, athletes 18 or over who may interact with Minor Athletes, have more responsibilities to Milton Soccer/Mass Youth Soccer, under state and federal law than they had as a minor.

What does this mean?

  • Athletes that are 18 or will turn 18 during a current playing season and play on a team with minor athletes are required to take the SafeSport Core Abuse Prevention training in order to participate.  Players who are currently 17 years old may get a head start on this requirement and take the training with parental consent prior to their 18th birthday.
  • To Follow US Soccer policy, these athletes must be crosschecked against the Commonwealth of Mass SORI database, the US Soccer, and SafeSport Disqualification list once they turn 18th.  Mass Youth Soccer will conduct this activity.

Please use this link to access the SafeSport Adult Athlete Prevention Training Help Guide.  Detailed instructions on how to complete the required SafeSport Abuse Prevention Training. Also included in the help guide is the US Soccer access code that is needed to take the training for free.

Every Kid Sports Pass

Mass Youth Soccer is excited to share with you the Every Kid Sports Pass which offers qualifying income-restricted families up to $150 per child towards their registration fees for youth sports activities up to four times a year.  In every town and program across the state, there are children who are unable to participate in sports programs for economic reasons.

To be eligible to receive a pre-paid visa to help cover registration fees, families need to provide Medicaid, SNAP, or WIC supporting documents containing the child’s name and show active effective dates (within 12 months).

Please note, the Every Kid Sports Pass is eligible only for Youth Recreational level programs (e.g. Town Travel / Intown / Recreational programs lasting longer than 4 week).  Clubs, travel, tournament, elite, personal training, camps, and programs that cost more than $500 do NOT qualify.

Mass Youth Soccer will be raising awareness of this incredible opportunity to our full membership and beyond in November as the majority of our member programs begin opening registration for the Spring soccer season and Winter programming. Please help us to raise awareness of the Every Kid Sports Pass program by using all available avenues to promote this opportunity to families in your community!

  • Avoid spitting, nose clearing on the field or spitting on gloves
  • Minimize celebrations, hugs, handshakes, etc.
  • No sharing of food or drinks
  • Leave immediately after practice and games

No Room for Racism

No Room for Racism

Milton Soccer is committed to increasing player, coach, and board member diversity so that the program demographics accurately reflect that of our town. As an organization we stand behind and welcome all who wish to participate in Milton Soccer. By launching our ”No Room for Racism”  campaign, we want to show support for the families of Milton and renounce any racism they may have experienced in our town, schools, and sports. As a board we are making available No Room for Racism practice jerseys, beanies, and face masks that may be purchased in our Team Shop (available soon) and the voluntary wearing of these items.

We will also be displaying No Room for Racism banners at Milton Soccer Fields. We believe that the organization should be welcoming and actively anti-racist. Staying silent, especially now, shows acceptance of the status quo and our organization is committed to moving forward to a more welcoming and racially diverse program.

Milton soccer does not condone discrimination or bullying in any form. Practice jerseys, beanies, and masks will be available to parents who would like to purchase them, and it is a parental choice to have a player wear them.

Please click here if you would like to view and/or purchase these items from the store.  Thanks!

Sincerely,

Milton Soccer Board
