Dear Cohasset Soccer Community,
Although we are in the peak of summer, fall is around the corner and we are excited to announce information in the hope of kicking off a Fall 2020 soccer season! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and our spring season refunds, Cohasset Soccer Club is grateful for the community’s support.
Before diving into the details, one big change for the upcoming year: CSC will not be a single, year-long registration for both fall and spring as in years past. Current registration will be Fall 2020 only, for both travel and in-town, with adjusted cost. This is due to feedback from our participant survey as well as the uncertainties the year 2020 continues to bring.
Registration for the Fall 2020 season is now live at: https://www.cohassetsoccer.com/registration. The deadline for both travel and in-town registration is July 31, to ensure sufficient lead time for uniform ordering, coach and team assignments, and other administration.
Below we offer preliminary information to help decisions during what we know is a tricky time. In sharing these details, there are many moving parts on both the state and town levels. Included at the end of this email are links to the official guidance informing CSC’s current planning. At this time, we are doing the best we can to gauge numbers and move forward with caution while keeping safety as the top priority. Of course, in the unfortunate event that refunds become necessary if a season cannot move forward in any form, CSC has already confirmed a process for full refunds via credit card this fall. If permitted to move forward this fall, CSC will work with town officials on an approved safety plan and other guidelines that will be shared with all participants before any play begins.
In-town (Pre-K (age 4 by Sept. 1, 2020), Grades K-4):
In-town soccer will run 7 weeks on Saturdays from Sept. 12- Oct. 31.
Fall 2020 In-town registration fee for Pre-K and K is $80; $100 for all others.
Times are TBD; Pre-K and K grades will be reduced to one hour sessions earlier in the day based on overwhelming participant survey feedback.
We are always in need of volunteer coaches. You can indicate your interest by registering as a coach online in the SportsPilot system after you register your participant(s).
Travel (U12 grades 5&6; U14 grades 7&8)
Fall 2020 Travel registration fee is $150.
Under current guidance from Mass. Youth Soccer, travel teams will play a truncated season with initial practice and scrimmages starting after Labor Day, and some smaller number of “official” league games starting only after Columbus Day.
CSC’s policy is all interested players make a travel team; in the normal course tryouts would have already been held this year. If safe to do so, we plan to hold tryouts in early September, recognizing that reshuffling may be necessary in Spring 2021. Additional details regarding tryouts and scheduling will be provided to travel registrants later this summer.
Because current circumstances won’t allow for uniform try-ons this year, to ensure enough time to order each travel player needs to provide sizing information in the Comment field on the SportsPilot registration platform before submitting payment. For both uniform shirt and shorts, please indicate Youth size S/M/L/XL or Men/Women S/M/L/XL (links for detail about the sizes are included at the end of this email). Please also indicate your shoe size for purposes of ordering socks.
We are eager for new and old faces to coach the travel teams. Please indicate your interest by registering as a coach online in the SportsPilot system after you register your participant(s).
Finally, please help us spread the word to any new neighbors or friends or folks who haven’t yet been involved with Cohasset Soccer Club. At a time filled with so much change and uncertainty, we remain hopeful that soccer can bring some return to routine for the kids this fall.
If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to email email@example.com. By way of reminder, the deadline for Fall 2020 registration for all players is July 31.
