Parents and Players,

Welcome to the 2016 Braintree Travel Soccer Junior Academy season.

I am writing to provide you with the information you will need for this season. Please take a moment to read this email in its entirety.

A QUICK NOTE ABOUT UNIFORMS: PLAYERS WILL RECEIVE A JERSEY, SHORTS AND SOCCER SOCKS ... AT THE INITIAL TRAINING SESSION ON 2/21/16, THERE WILL BE A TABLE SET UP FOR PARENTS/PLAYERS TO GIVE US THE PROPER JERSEY AND SHORT SIZES FOR EACH REGISTERED PLAYER ...

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!

1. The training schedule for Junior Academy players is shown below. Further, all schedule information and announcements will be available the BYS website, at www.braintreeyouthsoccer.org when available. Junior Academy players will have 5 days of indoor training at the Hollis School beginning Sunday, February 21st. Training will last for 50 minutes in total and will begin precisely on the hour between 8 AM and 5 PM. Times are TBD. Dates are as follows:

All INDOOR TRAINING SESSIONS are on Sundays in the Hollis School gymnasium
  • 2/21/16
  • 2/28/16
  • 3/6/16
  • 3/13/16
  • 3/20/16
All OUTDOOR GAMES will be played at East Middle School on:
  • 4/3/16
  • 4/10/16
  • 4/17/16
  • 4/24/16
  • 5/1/16
  • 5/8/16
  • 5/15/16
  • 5/22/16
  • 6/5/16 will be used as a make up date if it was necessary to cancel games due to weather.
  • 6/12/16 The final Braintree Cup jamboree!


2. Each player will be assigned a training hour for these training sessions. Unfortunately we cannot entertain requests for players to attend an alternative training sessions. The reason for this is that the gym space is rather confined. We do our best to keep the player to instructor ratio at a number that is conducive to the enjoyment of all the children in the gym at the time.

3. If an additional training session becomes be available, coaches will notify players of such opportunities which will also be posted on our website.

4. Please condition yourselves to check email for updates from the league and from coaches. Our coaches are dedicated volunteers, many of whom prefer group emails to correspond with players. This maximizes the amount of time they can spend on the field and makes their life easier. Please do your best to accommodate them, as they have many players to be concerned about. We try not to "spam" you with emails. In addition to communications from your coach, you might receive one or two emails per week from the league with pertinent information about the season. Please email Registrar Deb McMartin at braintreeyouthsoccer@gmail.com if you are not receiving these important updates.

5. During our indoor training sessions, we are asking parents to stay outside the gymnasium at Hollis. Space is a bit tight and must be used for the players and to reduce clutter that slows down training sessions. Please follow this instruction. Siblings are absolutely prohibited from the gym.

6. Each player should come to training sessions prepared. Soccer players wear shorts and t-shirts. Eventually they will receive a uniform and should wear the complete uniform to pre-season training as well as their outdoor training and game dates. Each player should also wear shin guards (this is mandatory). Each player should come to training with a ball (size 4 is appropriate for their level of play), and a drink.

7. All gear, drinks, and other personal items must also be kept outside the gym during training sessions. Otherwise, drinks spill and equipment clutters the training environment.

8. Please remember that all coaches and directors are volunteers. Referees are often-times younger players on more advanced teams in our travel program. Please be sure they are treated with the respect they deserve for volunteering their extra time for your child. There is an absolute zero tolerance for any spectator, coach, or player that is disrespectful to a referee, a coach, or another player. Please refer to the rules of play and the Zero Tolerance Policy on the BYS website for additional information. Also, please be advised that the four fields we play on have designated sidelines. As the fields are parallel to one another, coaches, players, referees, BYS staff and other CORI'd individuals will be stationed in the middle section of the fields...parents, siblings, and other family members can ONLY BE ON THE OPPOSITE SIDELINE! No one can be behind the nets, or on the BYS side for safety and security reasons.

9. Your concerns can be brought to the attention of myself, or any one of our junior academy directors. Email addresses for each of these directors will be released with the training schedule.

10. Our first four training sessions this season will be run by the staff from Advantage Soccer, with the final session being led by the individual coaches. You can read more about this organization at www.advantagesoccer.com.

11. Junior Academy games will begin as early as 8 AM and be done by as late as 1 PM on Sundays beginning in April. The schedule will be released at a date to be determined. It will be posted to our website as well. The season ends in June with our Braintree Cup Jamboree celebration and party. This is a fantastic event. More details to come as we approach this date.

Monday December 28, 2015 - 2016 Junior Academy Registration is now open



Junior Academy Info

The Junior Academy (JA) is Braintree Travel Soccer's development program for our U8 players who are not yet old enough to play competitive travel soccer. U8 is the designation for players aged 8 and under. We follow the USYSA age grouping for travel soccer. Generally, the U8s are 1st and 2nd graders. Registration Fee: $75.

This is the BEST DEAL IN TOWN! The fee includes indoor training during the winter with professional instructors, full uniform, competitive games in April and May at East Middle School and a Season Ending Jamboree. Please note, there are no sibling discounts for Junior Academy.

JA begins with indoor training in February and March. Training sessions are usually divided into 1 hour time slots, by school and by gender. The final schedule for these dates will be available in early February after we have a more accurate count of players.

The outdoor season runs on Sundays from late March/early April through May. It concludes the first weekend in June with the very popular Soccer Jamboree.

While the Junior Academy is a program run by Braintree Travel Soccer, all training takes place in Braintree school gyms and games are played on Sundays in Braintree against other Braintree JA Teams. There is no travel involved at this level.

Volunteers are needed. Please consider volunteering as a coach, assistant coach or field crew.

Any questions can be emailed to braintreeyouthsoccer@gmail.com

Registration Deadline is February 1, 2016

Spring 2015 Junior Academy Schedule

(Updated 4/30/2015)
 
 
Feb. 14, 2014 - From the President:

February 14, 2014

Hello Jr. Academy Players and Coaches,

Welcome to the 2014 Braintree Travel Soccer Junior Academy season. Once again we have been hard at work making improvements to the program that the kids will find fun and enjoyable - leading to what we hope will be a lifetime enjoyment of the sport. I write to provide you with the information you will need for this season. Please take a moment to read this email in its entirety.

1. The training schedule for Junior Academy players is shown below. Further, all schedule information and announcements will be available the BYS website, at www.braintreeyouthsoccer.org when available. Junior Academy players will have 5 days of indoor training at the Hollis School beginning next Sunday, February 23. Training will last for 50 minutes in total and will begin precisely on the hour between 9 AM and 5 PM.

2. The first 3 weeks of indoor training (2/23, 3/2 & 3/9) is grouped by school. The last 2 sessions (3/16, 3/23) will be grouped by team to allow the coach to start interacting with the players. The schedule for the final two dates will be distributed in the coming weeks once teams are constructed and coaches are assigned.

3. Each player is assigned a training hour for these indoor sessions. Unfortunately we cannot entertain requests for players to attend an alternative training sessions. The reason for this is that the gym space is rather confined. We do our best to keep the player to instructor ratio at a number that is conducive to the enjoyment of all the children in the gym at the time.

7. All gear, drinks, and other personal items must also be kept outside the gym during training sessions. Otherwise, drinks spill and equipment clutters the training environment.

8. Please remember that game referees are usually players on more advanced teams in our travel program. While they might look young, they have attended many hours of instruction and passed a vigorous testing process in order to earn their referee badge. Please be sure they are treated with the respect they deserve. There is an absolute zero tolerance for any spectator, coach, or player that is disrespectful to a referee, a coach, or another player.

9. Your concerns can be brought to the attention of our junior academy directors. Email addresses for each of these directors will be released with the training schedule.

10. Several of the training sessions this season will be run by the staff from Advantage Soccer. You can read more about this organization at advantagesoccer.com.

11. Junior Academy games will begin as early as 8 AM and be done by as late as 1 PM on Sundays beginning in April. The schedule will be released at a date in March. It will be posted to our website as well. The season ends in June with our World Cup celebration and party. This is a fantastic event. More details to come as we approach this date.

BYS 1st and 2nd Grade Spring league is a development program for our 1st and 2nd grade boys and girls who are not yet old enough to play competitive travel soccer.

Our program consists of indoor skills development in the Winter with outdoor games in the Spring.

The objective is to provide a fun learning environment for our juniors.
