REGISTRATION & PAYMENT PROCESSING OPTIONS:


LYS is required to submit to NVYSL the number of teams we expect to have for the upcoming season. This information is usually due some time around the early registration date. Because of this, we encourage everyone to register early and offer discounted registration fees for doing so. This will ensure that we reserve the proper amount of teams for any given age group or face monetary penalties. ANY registration received after Late Registration date is subject to space availability.
 
We are also required by Mass. Youth Soccer (MYS) to submit a list of all members participating in the upcoming season. Because of this, full payment for the current season is expected immediately upon registering.  Any registration that goes unpaid will be automatically deleted, and that player will not be considered for a team until registration is resubmitted and full payment is made.

 
As part of our streamlining of process we are asking that ALL registrations and payments be completed online. With the addition of our eCheck feature, you now have the option of paying online via Checking/Savings Account or credit card.
 
You can get started by scrolling to the bottom of this page and selecting the “Begin Registration” button for either the In-Town or Travel programs.
 
NOTE: If your child is listed as “Ineligible”, select the ineligible button to see the reason for it and make necessary changes. 
 
*Payment is required immediately upon registering.  Any registration that goes unpaid for more that 24 hours will be automatically deleted and that child will need to be re-registered in order to play.

**Players will not be placed on a team if registration is incomplete. All forms and fees will be returned.

This included all Players, Coaches, Volunteers, and spectators regardless of your level of participation. IF YOU REFUSE TO SIGN THE RELEASE YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED ON THE GROUNDS. Parents/Guardians are expected to sign the Release on behalf of each Player/child under the age of 18. The Releases are attached to this email and are also available for download off the LYS website. We will have printed copies of the Release available

quarantine period. Other teams who were not in contact with the Blue team or Red team will not have any suspension in activities.
