Spring Season Cancellation and Refund Information
April 24, 2020 • News and Updates
It was with much disappointment that Board of Directors of Mansfield Youth Soccer announced the cancellation of the 2020 Spring Season. Soccer is a very big part of all of our lives and we miss seeing everyone out at the fields. Please see below for the original email that was sent with further information on the Fall Season and the refund process.
Dear MYS Parents & Families,
We hope that this email finds you all healthy and safe. As a result of the closure of schools in Massachusetts through June, Boston Area Youth Soccer (BAYS) reluctantly announced that the Spring soccer season is canceled. For players, families, and coaches, this is not what we wanted to hear. However, the safety and protection of our players and families must come first. Mansfield Youth Soccer stands behind decisions that safeguard our MYS soccer community.
We will be sending more email communications soon regarding next steps as we turn our attention to the Fall 2020 season. Director of Coaching Aaron Salter and our Travel Committee are currently in the process of identifying potential options for the annual group evaluations. We are also considering and exploring options for summer programs which could include clinics, camps or pickup games.
IMPORTANT – Please see below for information on refund procedures for Spring 2020 registration fees:
Please be aware that this is a manual process for our volunteer organization. Checks will be mailed within 4 weeks after submitting the form and the completed approval process. Additionally, it is our policy to withhold $15 from refunds to cover sunk operational costs our organization has already incurred.
Option to Donate to MYS – MYS has established an option that will benefit our Financial Aid Program. If you are willing and financially able to donate your Spring 2020 registration fee(s) to MYS, we will use all the funds to benefit Mansfield families who request financial aid to participate in playing Mansfield Youth Soccer. MYS is aware of the consequences COVID-19 has had on families, with many losing jobs or having their working hours reduced. We would like to be in a position to continue to provide financial aid for those in need so Mansfield kids can continue to play soccer.
Thank you to anyone who is able to pursue this option, it is greatly appreciated. Mansfield Youth Soccer is a 501(c)(3) Organization and your donation could be tax-deductible (receipt available upon request).
Finally, we thank you all for your patience during these challenging times. More importantly, we look forward to getting back on the fields and seeing everyone in the future.
Stay safe and healthy,
