We have been adding to our library of system tips to assist our parents with our new registration software. If you are having difficulty with any registration functions, please consult the list of detail process that are available under the System Tips tab. If you have suggestions for additional items to assist our parents in the future, please forward them to us.
In addition, several of our divisions and teams have begun to use the mobile application Team Manager to facilitate team communication, publicize team schedules, provide the ability to include family members interested in your child's schedule (aunts, uncles, grandparents), and to automate the COVID health checks. Software download links are available under the Parents and Coaches tabs. If you have questions regarding the use of this product, we have added a link to the software help topics under the System Tips tab. If you have further questions regarding this software or would like to add interested parties to the distribution, please contact your coaches.
BYSA will be returning to 'normal' soccer activities for the spring 2021 season. We will taking registrations and registration fees starting in early February. Our players will be participating in team practices and games. This will all be predicated on following all current CDC,State of CT and local health guidelines based on the COVID-19. To provide you with some of this information, we are publishing the current CJSA guidelines for parents, coaches and players. Please bear in mind that we are working in a changing environment and these guidelines will continue to be revised as necessary.
I hope you have all stayed healthy throughout this devasting world-wide pandemic. Fortunately, we were able to navigate through a successful fall soccer season providing an opportunity for your children to safely enjoy the great game of soccer.
As we open registration for the spring, we are hopeful that we will be edging closer to normalcy. However, at this point we will continue to follow the guidance of our federal, state, and local officials regarding COVID protocols as outlined in our return to play policy. While we are optimistic these guidelines may be relaxed over time, please be sure you are comfortable with them before you register your child for the season. Thank you for your support of Berlin Youth Soccer and we looked forward to seeing you (masked and socially distanced) this spring.
