U7 Soccer Schedule reminders

Hello Parents/Coaches,

Just a reminder that we will play every Sunday until March 17th, this includes this coming Sunday February 17.

Also, if you know that your child plans to play in the Spring, registration is already open. Do not wait until the last minute as the teams fill up and you will not be able to request certain coaches/teams etc. I do my best to fill requests but if it is last minute, I cannot guarantee it.

Thanks very much!

Hello Parents/Guardians/Coaches,

Location and Time:

Winter session is upon us. Our first week starts this Sunday the 20th. We will play at the Salemwood School Gym which is located behind the school, 529 Salem St. Malden, MA. Teams will be emailed to you on Thursday before start date. Please note we have less children during winter soccer and less coaches to help out. Please consider volunteering, we need your help. Please note if you requested a certain team or coach and did not get it, it is because that coach or team is not available this session. Please make the request again for Spring.

What players should wear:

-Players should wear comfortable clothes, we will use pinnies for Winter program. They will not have uniforms.
-Players must have shin pads. They will not be allowed to play without them.
-Players can wear sneakers or turf shoes. No cleats for winter soccer.
-Please do not wear watches, jewelry, or baseball hats
-Please bring a size 3 soccer ball for practice
-Players should bring a water bottle each week

You can always come back to the blogger for updates on cancellations due to weather. Field schedules will also be posted here as well as being emailed to you.

Have a great session. Feel free to email me anytime you have questions or concerns. My email is nicoledoucette1@gmail.com and my phone number is 781-389-2168.

Fall Soccer is Here!!

Greetings U7 Parent,

Fall soccer is almost here. We will start on Sunday September 9th. I will email you the team assignment on Tuesday.  We are still in need of parent volunteers to help the Coaches. Please reach out with any questions. There is no experience necessary, it is literally to help the head coach organize the kids and keep track of breaks. Since you will be at the field anyway, it is a great way to get involved and help the kids.

Games will be played at Pine Banks Field inside the track. Pine Banks is  on the corner of Main St. and Sylvan St. in Melrose. The schedule will be on the U7 blog. The link is below and is also on the Malden Youth Soccer website. Please pay attention as the times  your child will play can change. The blog is also where we post any cancellations or changes.

Parents will need to supply:

-If your child already has the correct uniform color, please use it. If not, the league will supply a shirt, shorts, and socks on the first day.

-A  #3 ball, please put their name on it.
-Cleats are recommended but not necessary. They can wear sneakers.
-Shin pads are a must. Your child will not be allowed to play without them.
-Water for frequent water breaks.
-Snack in case they need it.
- Long pants and long sleeved shirts may be worn under the team uniform if desired.
-Players must not wear earrings during the practice or game.
-Parents must remain at the field with their children during the entire session


Our Philosophy
At the U7 level we continue focusing on basic skills, and begin incorporating more of the basic rules into the experience.

Our primary focus remains providing a fun and healthy environment for the kids to discover their emerging soccer skills.  We do not focus on winning.  We don't keep official score, celebrate wins, or mourn losses.  We strive for every player to get equal playing time, and try to keep the number of players on the field small in order to maximize opportunities to play.  We reward skillful play, good attitudes and sportsmanship.

Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns as the season moves forward and we all look forward to a great season.

Thanks very much,
Nicole Doucette
Malden U7 Soccer Coordinator
