Considerations for next year
Spring is the end of our annual year. We do not have a summer session. The 2017 / 2018 year begins in the fall. Fall is the season when players who reach the right age move up to the next division.
The move from U9 to U10 is an important consideration. U10 is a travel league, where the teams play against other similar teams within Middlesex County. Players are placed on teams according to their ability. U10 games are mainly played on Saturdays, and there are normally 2 team practices during the week.
Children who are going into 4th grade must move to U10. 3rd graders may stay in U9 or move to U10 depending ability and desire for the added competition and playing time. 2nd graders may consider moving to U10, but there are limited spots available for 2nd graders. This is typically something that stronger players choose.

U10 Placements will be held on June 12 at
2:00-3:30, immediately following our final U9 soccer day. at 3:30. If you are playing in U10, or would like to receive an opinion about what to do, you should attend this placement day. All eligible players who want to play U10 will be placed on a team.
I would love to hear your feedback from this season. How are we doing? What can we do better. Respond to any of my emails!
