Fall 2020 In-Town Soccer

As previously announced, HSC will be hosting an in-town fall session for the 2020 soccer season. And we are excited to announce, that we are partnering with HYSA, to ensure that all Hopkinton children have an opportunity to participate in training and weekend games this Fall. We intend to play from August 31 - October 31, weather and pandemic permitting.
 
What is an "In-Town League"?
In-town means all Hopkinton children are welcome to register for the season. However, we will only be playing in-town games, excluding league travel, or other club teams coming to Hopkinton to play.
 
How are teams assembled for practices and games?
Each grade will practice as a team, and will be equally divided into two for weekend games. The practices and games will be lead by the head coach, though parental support may be needed for some larger groups and game action (let us know if you would be able to volunteer!).
 
If it's all "In-Town", what can we expect for competitive action?
  • All practices will be run as usual for all HSC club teams: bringing the kids together twice a week to focus on improving individual and team based skills.
  • We will be hosting competitive grade based games for the players on Saturdays and Sundays (keeping them evenly matched). This will likely mean 9v9, or 7v7 games.
  • For the 3-6 graders will have a 4v4 "Champions League" of rotating games as well. This provides a round-robin style of games, bringing different players together for each team in each game. Individual players will receive points based on the scoring and outcome of the games, with players with the highest scoring getting rewarded at the end of the Champions League.
 
How will HYSA and HSC coordinate the teams?
HYSA will administer and support all of the K-2nd grade programs, and HSC will run the 3rd through 6th grade teams.
If your child is a K-2nd grade, please go to HYSA's site to register.
If your child is grade 3 through 6th, please follow this link for the HSC website to register.
 
What about Middle School Grades (7&8)?
At this time, it is expected that Hopkinton Middle School will be hosting a soccer season for the boys and girls in grades 7-8. However, we are prepared for running a similar program at the 7/8 grade level, and may integrate the 6th graders with this group to facilitate 11v11 games on the boys side. Coach Murdough, who leads the Middle School girls team, will also work with the girls In-Town team at this age group. If you expect your middle schooler will want to play, we encourage you to sign them up as well.
 
What about COVID19?
We will be following the current guidelines from the State of NH for sports activities, similar as we just did for the Summer Skills Camp, and in use with New Hampshire Soccer League this fall. This means that:
  •  We will be requiring your approval of a Covid waiver similar to the one that was used for the Camp, and we will post that into the registration process.
  • We will be utilizing similar protocols as we did with the soccer camp.  
  • Kids must bring and wear a mask for going to and from practice, games or other soccer related activities. 
  • Kids should bring their own hand sanitizer, Coach will have a bottle as well.
  • All kids bring plenty of their own water - NO SHARING FOOD/DRINK, and no SPLASHING OTHER KIDS WITH WATER 
  • We will be taking temperatures prior to each game/practice
 
What is the cost?
The fee for this season is reduced to $55. This will include the cost of HSC reversible pinnie for players, as well as the typical expenses for field maintenance, equipment and insurance.
 
What about Uniforms?
This year HSC will be providing reversible pinnies for all players. These will be provided to the players (as soon as they arrive), and should be cleaned before each practices and game day . For games, please use your previous seasons black shorts and forest green socks.
