Jamaica Plain Youth Soccer
Jamaica Plain Youth Soccer is a community soccer program for boys and girls in Boston, Massachusetts. Each year we offer Spring and Fall seasons in our Academy Program (Grades 1 through 4) and our Travel Program (Grades 3 through 12). Grade 9 through 12 travel teams, however, are only available in the Spring.
Spring 2021 Season
Grade 1-2 (U8)
Registration is now open for the Grades 1-2 JPYS Academy Spring 2021 Season. This season, players can choose a two-day-a-week option (Friday and Sunday) or one-day-a week, on Sunday only. Enrollment will be limited in both options. Friday practices will be in the evenings, from about 6:15-7:15, and Sunday will be in two groups somewhere in the range of Noon to 3:00 pm.
Grade 3-8 (U10, U12, U14)
Late registration for the Spring 2021 season for Grades 3-8 is now open. You may still register, but city restrictions on field use due to the COVID situation may require us to limit registration or use a waiting list on short notice.
Because of the ongoing COVID situation, the JPYS Board has decided not to participate in the Boston Area Youth Soccer (BAYS) league for the Spring 2021 season. In an effort to get the best soccer to the most people, JPYS will be conducting an in-town program only. For U10 and U12 boys and girls age groups, we will be conducting a small-sided JPYS town league. For U14s, we will hold practices and set games within the program. For all age groups, we are exploring the opportunity with other programs that have opted out of BAYS the possibility of friendly matches later in the season if the COVID situation improves.
As always, our soccer activities will be guided by information and regulations provided by the CDC, state and local governments, Mass Youth Soccer, and JPYS families. All soccer will be played under modified COVID rules, including all persons masked, proper distancing, and modified soccer rules to reduce the chance of transmission. The safety of JPYS players and families, as well as our greater community, is paramount in our decision-making.
Grade 9-12 and one year post-grad (U17 and U19)
Registration for the Spring 2021 season for HS grades is now open. Because of the COVID situation and the "Fall 2" high school season, we are still assessing whether or not JPYS will field HS travel teams in the BAYS league. Please make every effort to register by March 20th if you are interested in travel so we can gauge interest and register a team if there is sufficient interest.
If there is not sufficient interest in a travel team, JPYS will offer an in-town opportunity to play more informally.
