Spring 2020 Season Cancelled

Posted by Matt Mastroine on April 9, 2020

We've been following all the information coming out from our state and federal authorities. We are also watching key youth soccer agencies.

With the "Stay at Home" order for Ohio extending to May 1, that doesn't leave much time left for a full season. We could extend into the summer, but the reality is I'm not expecting a lot of people to want to jump right into a large social situation coming right out of this.

Rather than keep everyone on the hook wondering, we are going to formally cancel the recreational soccer league for the Spring 2020 season. That stinks, this was to be our largest season yet. These are challenging times and the health of our families and community is of upmost importance.

I will be working on reimbursing all the league registration fees, so watch for that coming soon (will take me a few days to process them all, may take up to 5 days to see it) on whatever form of payment you used.

We will be back for the Fall and will shoot to make that an epic season! I know my kids are disappointed and will be dying to get on the fields with their friends.

I will be looking into some options to do something over the summer, maybe an open field, one off practice, or other activity to get everyone out and about.

I'm sorry to have to start and end the season this way! Stay safe, stay active, support the community in any way you can!

Spring 2020 Season Postponed

Posted by Matt Mastroine on March 29, 2020

I hope everyone is staying safe!

We have been monitoring the developments with regards to COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Ohio currently has a stay at home order and US Youth Soccer has suspended all soccer activities until April 15.

We are currently pushing the recreational league back two weeks so the first practice will be April 20th. We will extend the season back one week to end on June 6th. We will continue to monitor and update you as we hear more, thank you for your patience!

What I do know:
  • this was slated to be the largest rec season so far with 190 players, 7 fields, and 24 teams!
  • if we have to cancel this season we will offer full refunds to everyone
  • if you are experiencing hardship and want a full refund now, email info@newphilasoccer.com
  • we will allow any 6th graders registered to play this season to play in the next fall season if we cancel this spring
  • if allowed to play this season, we will do everything we can to make this season work. But because of the number of players we will need help to pull it off last minute! Watch emails and Facebook for ways you can get involved!

    If your kids are like mine they are starting to bounce off the walls! There are a lot of resources out there to help keep kids active and learning, feel free to post any ideas you come across on our Facebook page!

    Welcome to the 2017 Fall Rec Soccer Season!

    Posted by Matt Mastroine on August 1, 2017

    I wanted to officially welcome you to the spring season. We have 113 players signed up on 20 teams.

    I wanted to cover a few details and hopefully answer some initial questions you may have.

    Shirts are on order and will be colored for each team. Those should be worn for games. On cold days players may want to wear a long sleeve shirt underneath. A pair of soccer socks will also come with that. You will need a pair of shin guards for practices and games. Those can be picked up online or at any local sports store (DICKS, Dunhams, Soccer One, etc). Players do not have to have cleats, though they certainly help. If you have cleats, make sure they do not have a cleat on/near the toe (football cleats many times have this) as I cannot allow those for safety reasons.

    Practices are all on Mondays, beginning August 14th. They will be split between 5:30 or 6:30 and should take about an hour. Your coach will let you know which practice time your team will have. If you have a soccer ball and want to bring it, you are welcome to. We will have practice balls available at the field though, so you don't need to get one.

    Games will all be on Saturday mornings, starting August 19th, between 10 and 12. You will get a game schedule so you will know what time your team will be playing. The last game will be on October 7th.

    All practices and games are at the Pleasant Valley fields. If you need directions, check out the website here: http://newphilasoccer.com/fields.php If we fill up parking in the gravel lot next to the fields, we can also use the parking lots right next to it.

    With Ohio weather, we never know if we will have 6 inches of snow or 72 degree sun. Most likely we will have weather turn on us and have to cancel a game or practice. Coaches will notify you if that is the case and we will try to keep it to a minimum while keeping everyone safe and healthy.

    Your coach will be contacting you soon. All teams were just finalized, so those details will be going out this week.

    And most important, know that the role that you play this season has a tremendous impact on your kids overall experience. Be your kids biggest fan, support them no matter how they do. Cheer for every player on the field, both teams. Please watch the yelling or criticizing players, coaches, or referees. The coaches and refs are all volunteer, so we are all learning and growing from this and mistakes will happen. This league is not about competition or winning, it is about learning, growing, and having fun!

    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me anytime via phone, text, or email. Or just pull me aside at the field.

    Thanks again for being a part of NPYSA and trusting us with your kids!

    Rec vs Competitive/Travel teams

    Posted by Matt Mastroine on January 25, 2017

    "I've heard of other leagues for 2nd grade and up already in New Phila under NPYSA. What are those and are they replaced with this?"

    You may have already heard of or participated in U10 (under 10) or U12 (under 12) teams already. I had the privilege of coaching U12 for several seasons. Those teams are typically a little more competitive and play other teams in other cities in our area. Sometimes there is more travel involved (Akron) and sometimes it is closer (Dover) depending on the league they play in. Those teams are still active and are a great choice for some. They use referees and focus on higher level game play, track scores, and have tournaments.

    This new rec league is all local, we will play at one location. Rather than playing other teams from other cities, we will only be playing teams within our rec league. Games are typically less about competition and more about learning, growing, and playing with others. It's a good chance to get to know the game and enjoy the experience.

    For some, rec will be a great place to start and then move into the competitive teams. For others, rec will be a great place to start and continue up to middle school. In either case, players will develop skills that will enable them to play in middle school and high school.

    If you are interested in the competitive teams, let me know and I can put you in contact with those coaches.
