Parents Overview

Thank you for showing interest in CCYS and our soccer programs! As a parent you have questions about how our club runs, which is fantastic and we are excited to engage with you and your player(s).

This page serves to give the reader an overview, but if further information is needed, please check out the detailed information on the Program Info page.  Or, if you would like to speak with someone regarding our club, please go to the Contacts Us page to find the right person to get answers to your questions. 

Club Organization

CCYS is a non-profit organization run mainly by the parents of our players.  We rely heavily on our parents to take on leadership roles including coaches, assistant coaches, managers, age directors, directors and president as well as other roles within the club.  Parents may volunteer when registering players by clicking on the Volunteer button.  These volunteers work together to execute our club's mission of providing soccer to boys and girls in the communities of Concord and Carlisle.  While the majority of our time is spent setting up and conducting business of the season, some of these volunteers also serve as the slate of officers who manage the day-to-day operations of the club.  These officers are responsible for the administration of the club's mission.  They meet monthly to execute club business.  These meetings are open to all our members.  Please inquire with CCYS leadership if you would like to attend these meetings or read the meeting minutes. We welcome your participation!


CCYS has two main programs; Travel (Grades 3-12) and InTown (Pre-K to Grade 6).  General information is listed below about practices and uniforms.  Our programs are run separately and have different requirements.  For details about each of these programs including eligibility, click here. CCYS also offers a competitive Club program (starting in Grade 3) in partnership with the Liverpool Football Club International Academy of Massachusetts (for details, please click here). 


For our Travel and In-Town programs, generally practices are conducted during the week during the season.  InTown practices once per week (except for Pre-K) and Travel practices twice per week.  Practices are set by coaches about three weeks prior to the season opening and may take place in either Concord or Carlisle.


Uniform Jerseys are the same style for InTown and Travel Programs worn.  If your player has two jerseys (one in white and one in maroon) that fit, you will not need to buy new jerseys.  All  players, both Travel & InTown who need to buy new uniforms order them directly from the Challenger Team Store which can be accessed through our website - Click here to go to the store. Uniform jerseys need to be ordered at least 3 weeks before the first game. When ordering new uniform jerseys, it is important that you order the UNIFORM NUMBER assigned to your player by CCYS.  For a list of jersey numbers for InTown Players click HERE.  For a list of jersey numbers for Travel Players click HERE If this is your child's first season playing CCYS soccer, please contact Robin Garrison at [email protected].  She will assign your player a jersey number at that time.

Uniforms are the SAME for both travel and InTown. All players should purchase one White Jersey and one Maroon Jersey.  Players are also required to wear black shorts (white stripe is optional) and black socks.  The shorts and black socks may be purchased locally at Brines in Concord or Soccer Stuff in Acton.  You may also order shorts and socks, through the Challenger Team Store.
