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 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

Last Day of Soccer and field day

Hi Parents and Coaches.

Tomorrow is the last day of soccer. We will have our regular scheduled practice/game with field day right after your child's session. Example:  your child plays from 9-10:30, the coach will hand out trophies to the team, you will head over to the area set up for food and fun. We will have pizza, slush, and water for the kids, siblings and parents.  If anyone wants to bring a dessert item and put it on the table, feel free. We will also have an inflatable obstacle course. Kids and families can just play and hang out. If your child's game is from 10:30-12 (same thing, you will go over after the game).

We wish you all a happy, healthy summer and look forward to seeing you in the fall!

Have a great day,

To Pre-Pay online please visit:

Pre-orders help move the line along faster vs. paying onsite. Please print your online receipt and hand it to the photographer.   The above access code is accessible only through the end of the day on Picture Day.  This helps ensure that parents are not making a purchase without confirming that an individual photo was taken.  Purchases for multiple children in one credit card transaction can be done by setting up an account, otherwise, the “quick pay” option can be used.
For those who do not make a purchase, if your child’s individual photo was taken, and if a shipping address is provided on the unpaid order form, they will receive a postcard with their child’s individual access code in about 3 weeks after Picture Day.  All orders taken after Picture Day are subject to increased prices.

Paying on-site: Please bring online or receipt or filled out order from / payment to picture day.  The photographer will have extra order forms if you forget.

Check and cash will be accepted.  Credit card information taken on-site will be processed off-site.

 Buddy Pics:  Coaches and their player can have a photo taken together and receive a free 5x7 print.  The photographer will add package number 98 to your order forms.

If there are any questions please feel free to reach out to me.
