From the chairman of the BAYS Sportsmanship Award Committee:
I am pleased to inform you that your team, the boys Grade 5 Marauders, have won this season’s sportsmanship Award.
You and your team have demonstrated examples of outstanding sportsmanship during this season as well as previous seasons according to referees and opponents’ reports.
You join the ranks of two previous Arlington teams, Spring 2016 boy’s U18 Ponders, and Fall 2015 girl’s U10 Crushers.
You are part of a fine tradition in Arlington Soccer of displaying outstanding sportsmanship.
Registration for Spring 2018, PreK through Grade 8, runs October 20 – November 20, 2017.
Late Registration starts November 20. Signing up during Late Registration means that late fees may be added and space on a team is not guaranteed. We were unable to clear our wait list this fall due to the many late registrations– all players registered by November 20 are guaranteed to play.
Please use your EXISTING family account so that we retain your player’s history – if you create a new account all player history is lost.
Select Team Players must register for the spring – while the commitment is for two seasons, registration does not automatically carry over from the fall.
Coaches – all returning coaches should register by November 20 – please verify your primary email address and phone numbers when you register. We cannot add you to a roster unless you are registered.
Registration for the high school aged teams (Grade 10 and Grade 12) will open in the winter.
Any questions? Please Contact Us.
Congratulations to the boys Grade 6 Athletes AND the girls Grade 3 Breakers for receiving the Sportsmanship Award at the 2017 Natick Tournament this past weekend. This honor was given to just 10 teams…and Arlington received 2!
The Arlington Jaguars 6th grade boys select A Team team won the Division 2 Massachusetts Tournament of Champions (MTOC) with a hard-fought 2-0 win over Ludlow on June 25 in Lancaster. The Jaguars won eight straight games against teams from all over the state to capture the title. After a strong regular season where the Jaguars finished 8-0-2 in division 2A, the team qualified for the BAYS playoffs to compete for the right to represent BAYS in the state tournament. The Jaguars defeated Attleboro and Dorchester to reach the playoff final, where they overcame a strong and physical Marlboro in a tense 3-2 thriller in Medfield to advance to the MTOC. The MTOC tournament is held at New England’s largest soccer complex in Lancaster, MA and includes around 200 teams in age groups from grade 6 to 12. The Jaguars defeated Ludlow, Maynard, Topsfield in the group stage, and a tough Wilmington side in the semi-final to reach the final. Playing with only 2 substitutes, and having to draw deeply on their physical and mental reserves, the Jaguars faced Ludlow a second time in a tense game in front of a large and enthusiastic crowd.
