Thank you to the nearly 600 players who attended tryouts this spring…and to the 70+ evaluators and coordinators who worked the 20 tryouts. Teams were selected by a slate of approximately 8 evaluators per gender/age group. The rosters for the Arlington Soccer Club BAYS select teams for Fall 2019-Spring 2020 are indicated here.
Congratulations to all chosen, and a reminder that playing for an ASC select team is a two-season commitment, with a 50% practice and 90% game attendance expectation.
For those who were not placed on a select team, please remember that the vast majority of our club is comprised of players who do not participate on select teams. We field approximately 95 BAYS and 35 intown teams for grades 3 and up each season; select teams represent less than 20% of our total teams.
All non-select players in grades 3 and 4 will be placed on an intown team – we are fortunate, due to player volume, to be able to run a very robust intown league in these age groups. All non-select players in grades 5 and up will be placed on BAYS teams, competing in D3 and D4. All non-select teams will be formed by August.
The US Womens National Team are one of the most succesful soccer teams (men or women) in history. With 3 World Cups, 4 Olympic gold medals, 8 CONCACAF Gold Cups, and 10 Algarve Cups. They kick off their 2019 World Cup campaign on Tuesday June 11th. We are sharing this World Cup schedule with our members to make sure you don’t miss any USWNT action and to hopefully encourage our players to watch as much soccer as possible this summer! As France host what is set to be one of the most competitive women’s World Cups ever, Arlington Soccer Club want to wish our women good luck against the worlds best!
Registration for the Fall 2019 season is now open through June 15.
Late Registration starts June 15. Signing up during Late Registration means that late fees may be added and space on a team is not guaranteed, particularly for Grade 2 and above. We field well over 2000 players per year and the number of teams we can field is dictated by the number of players that register during the open registration period.
Please use your EXISTING family account so that we retain your player’s history – if you create a new account and player record(s), we cannot guarantee placement on the same team.
Coaches – all returning coaches should register to volunteer in AdminSports at the time of player registration – please verify your primary email address and phone numbers when you register. We cannot add you to a roster unless you are registered.
Any questions? Please Contact Us.
We are proud to announce that our Challenger trainers (Paige Forster, Brogan Marshalsey, Darrel Hayes and Tom Mitchinson) were the recipients of Challenger Sports “Team of the Year” award at their annual awards event. The competition for this title is for teams working in soccer organizations throughout New England and we are proud to proclaim we have the pick of the bunch. Our team has worked with every age group within the Arlington Soccer Club and we hope you have been able to take advantage of their work, which was recognized by the Challenger Academy as being of outstanding excellence. Well done team!
The ASC had 19 (!) teams participate in the Natick Tournament this past weekend. In addition to being honored with not one, but two Sportsmanship Awards, 6 Arlington teams competed in the finals.
The boys grade 8 Aces (BAYS Division 1A) won the tournament in the Boys U14 Alpha group, with the girls grade 5 Wolverines (BAYS Division 3E)winning the Girls U11 Gamma group. Congratulations to all teams on a successful tournament weekend!
Two ASC teams were recipients of the Sportsmanship Award at the Natick Tournament over Columbus Day weekend. The boys grade 5 Coyotes and the girls 3 Jaguars were honored with this award. The Coyotes compete in BAYS Division 2A and went 1-1-1 in the tournament. The Jaguars compete in BAYS Division 2A.
The tournament director personally passed along praise to the Town of Arlington for this accomplishment. There were nominations for 6-8 different Arlington teams when discussing the Sportsmanship Award, and he indicated “it seems like it’s in the coaching/program DNA to teach these types of life lessons along with the actual gameplay. Really well done.”
