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.

Spring Schedule and Field Assignments

Spring Soccer Is Here! Spring Season starts Sunday April 15th

Spring Soccer Is Here!

Because of field conditions, due to weather, the first game is scheduled for Sunday, April 15th.  The season will run thru June 10th.  We play at Pine Banks inside track field. Pine Banks is in Melrose on the corner of Main St. and Sylvan St.

If you are interested in helping with coaching, please let me know.

The Season

We will have a 10 game season this Spring.  All U7 games will be on Sunday mornings. The times your team plays will change. 

The last game will be June 11, weather permitting.

The Blog

This Blog will be the primary source of information for schedules, cancellations, etc.
Cancellations due to weather will be posted to the blog... please check it within an hour of the start time on game-day morning.  If you do not have access to the internet on Sunday mornings, please let me know.

Parents will need to supply...

  1. If you already have the correct uniform color, please use it.  If not, the league will supply a shirt, shorts and socks on the first day
  2. Appropriate shoes.  We'll play on real grass, cleats are recommended (but are not required)
  3. Shin pads are required.  Your child may be excluded from the game if this important piece of safety equipment is not used.
  4. Players must come to the game with their own size 3 ball with the players name on it
  5. Long pants and long sleeved shirts may be worn under the team uniform if desired
  6. Water - for frequent breaks
  7. A snack for between the practice and game may be desired
  8. Players must not wear earrings during the practice or game
  9. 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.

Basic Rules for Parents
  1. Players must play within their designated age group.
  2. Players must play on the team they have been assigned to.  Requests for specific teams will be honored if availability permits.  Requests made close to the start of the season are often hard or impossible to accomodate.
  3. At least one adult supervisor must stay during the entire session and is responsible for watching kids if they wander away from play.
  4. Parent involvement is appreciated and encouraged when appropriate but please try not to interfere with the session.
  5. Due to insurance rules players who are not registered with the league cannot play
  6. Players must not wear jewelry such as earrings, watches, necklaces, etc.
