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.

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.

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 must wear shin guards. This is mandatory. Each player should come to training with a ball (size 3 or 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 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.

Thank you,
Mark R. Smith

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.

The aim of the league is to provide the juniors the benefit of enjoying Spring recreational league play, while providing the skills training necessary so that they can play on our travel soccer teams in the future.

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.

Solid instruction in the fundamental skills will provide these young kids with the foundation necessary to be confident in their soccer skills and confident in themselves.
