We all held out hope at the beginning of March, when we had less information, that we might be able to salvage some sort of soccer season. However, it will come as no surprise to Concord and Carlisle families that our league, Boston Area Youth Soccer (BAYS) has finally announced the cancellation of the spring soccer season. With Governor Baker's announcement to continue remote learning efforts for the duration of the school year, BAYS felt that they had the support to make this call. The CCYS Spring Intown and travel soccer seasons are cancelled.
We have confirmed the fees that BAYS and Mass Youth Soccer Association (MYSA) will charge to CCYS and have also taken a look at the administrative expenses that CCYS has incurred in preparing for the spring season. After thoughtful discussion regarding refunds v. credit, we have decided to offer families a choice of either a refund less a small admin. fee or the option to donate their refund (less the small admin. fee) to a CCYS scholarship fund. Each season CCYS provides financial assistance to many Concord and Carlisle families who are in need. We are anticipating that many more families who have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, may need this financial assistance to register their children for CCYS in the future. The refund for in-town players will be less a $15 admin. fee, the refund for travel players will be less a $20 admin fee (due to the additional admin fees CCYS has to pay to BAYS and MYSA). Prior to 5:00pm on Friday, May 1, pleas e use this CCYS Refund/Donation form to confirm your preference for a refund, donation or partial donation. Any CCYS families that we have not heard from by Friday, May 1 at 5:00pm will be issued the above-detailed in-town and/or travel refund.
Have a safe and Healthy Spring!
