Fall 2020 Schedule Update

We’re going to start up our weeknight program with Revolution Academy coaches the week of September 21st and our first Saturday program will take place on Saturday, September 26th. We will run for eight straight weeks, including Columbus Day weekend, and conclude on Saturday, November 14. If you haven’t signed up for fall soccer, please note that late registration is still available. Here is a breakdown of what the season will look like.

Small Fry, Advanced Small Fry and Grade 1/2 programs
For those of you in our Small Fry, Advanced Small Fry and Grade 1/2 program, it will look very much the same as other seasons. Our Small Fry, Advanced Small Fry and Grade 1/2 program will take place on Saturday mornings with Revolution Academy coaches at Upper Sauta Field as there is enough space at Upper Sauta to allow our Small Fry and Advanced Small Fry programs to occur simultaneously while still allowing for social distancing.

  • Our Small Fry and Advanced Small Fry players will convene on Saturday mornings for our weekly programming
    • Small Fry: Saturday 9:30 AM to 10:30 AM at Upper Sauta Field
    • Advanced Small Fry: Saturday 9:30 AM to 10:30 AM at Upper Sauta Field
  • Our Grade 1/2 players will have a Weekday practice and small-sided games on Saturday morning
    • Grade 1/2 Weekday Practice: Wednesday afternoon 4:30 PM to 5:20 PM
    • Grade 1/2 Games: Saturday 8 AM to 9 AM at Upper Sauta Field

Grade 3/4, Grade 5/6 and Grade 7/8 programs
Those of you who registered for our Grade 3/4, Grade 5/6 and Grade 7/8 programs will see some changes. We will have in-town play plus weekday practice clinics. Hudson Youth Soccer is also aggressively pursuing travel friendlies against neighboring communities. Though nothing is official, we have had very positive discussions with at least one nearby community. Grade 3/4, Grade 5/6 and Grade 7/8 players will be divided into co-ed groups and will compete in small-sided games each Saturday. All games in these age groups will occur simultaneously at our Brook Street complex, which has enough space to accommodate these games and allow for social distancing.

  • Grade 3/4/5/6/7/8 Practices: See below
  • Grade 3/4 Games: Saturday 8:30 AM to 10 AM at Brook Street complex
  • Grade 5/6 Games: Saturday 10:30 AM to noon at Brook Street complex
  • Grade 7/8 Games: Saturday 12:30 PM to 2 PM at Brook Street complex

What’s at stake?
These are unique times, so we wanted to do something a little different this fall. We are proud to announce that our Grade 3/4, Grade 5/6 and Grade 7/8 divisions will each compete for the inaugural Hudson Cup. We will have enough teams in each age group (3/4, 5/6, 7/8) to allow for round-robin play so teams are not playing the same team every Saturday. These games will be played with referees, time and score will be kept, and they will be treated seriously, with the extra layer of fun and competition that comes from playing with and against your friends. We will keep standings and the winning team in each age group will win some unique swag that commemorates the first-ever Hudson Cup.

What happens next?
Hudson Youth Soccer will follow up as we get closer to the season start date with more information about the Wednesday night schedule, team rosters, Saturday schedules, etc. We will have a number of 30-minute online information meetings between now and the start of the season where you can ask questions and find out more about the upcoming season.

In the meantime, we need your help!
We need your help keeping your kids safe. Please make sure THEY have masks on at all times. Please make sure YOU have a mask on at all times. Please stay at least SIX FEET away from others. Hudson Youth Soccer believes that this approach will allow for safe physical activity among friends and the addition of the Hudson Cup will take this to another level. We are looking forward to getting out on the field and working with your children.

Congratulations to the Girls G5/6A team with coach Sam Calandra for winning the Nashoba Cup (NCup) this past weekend, beating Nashoba G5/6A 2-1 in the final!

Winter Futsal

We are excited to offer Winter Futsal programs this winter. Futsal is an indoor, small‐sided game played on a hard surface with a heavier futsal ball and futsal goals. Futsal offers many benefits as it improves decision making skills, improves reaction time, provides many touches on the ball, increases power via the weighted ball, develops confidence and improves creativity in 1v1’s. We are offering two sessions; one starting in December and one starting in February.

  • For our younger ages (Advanced Small Fry and Grade 1/2), we will have parent volunteer coaches run the sessions, including a mix of skills and games. For these age groups, we will be holding the sessions on Saturdays at the Hudson Portuguese Club.
  • For our older ages (Grade 3/4 and Grades 5/6 & 7/8), we will have a Revolution Academy coach run the sessions, including a mix of skills and games. For these age groups, we will be holding the sessions on Saturdays mornings at the Hudson MetroWest Boys and Girls Club.

Visit our Winter Futsal page for more information and our Registration page to register.

HYSA Partners With New England Revolution Academy

In about the biggest news ever for our organization, we have just signed a long-term partnership agreement with the New England Revolution Academy to create soccer programs in order to better develop our players and coaches! This move is in a direct response to the feedback from our parent survey last November, which indicated that player and coach development are your highest priorities.

Starting with the Spring 2018 Soccer season, from the Small Fry and Advanced Small Fry program all the way up to Grade 7/8 and High School programs, players will be coached in age-appropriate practices by experienced Revolution Academy coaches alongside volunteer parent coaches. For the Grade 1/2 age groups and above, our soccer programs will consist of grade-based group practice nights with experienced Revolution Academy coaches alongside volunteer parent coaches, team specific practices with volunteer parent coaches, and skills days with experienced Revolution Academy coaches, all with curriculum developed by the Revolution Academy.

We hope you share our enthusiasm about this news and we would encourage you to take advantage of early registration for Spring 2018 Soccer. Our registration page includes detailed program descriptions, program dates and times, registration fees, and much more! In addition, we will be hosting information sessions for parents and coaches in the near future to go over our new partnership and programs.
