About Us...

Berlin's Soccer Association offers Fall and Spring soccer opportunities:

  • PreK and Kindergarten co-ed, where they typically practice 1 day a week, with a game in Berlin on Saturday.
  • Grades 1 and 2 co-ed, where they typically practice 1 day a week, with a game on Saturday.  A schedule is usually created with our Berlin team(s) and another town, possibly Boylston or Clinton.  Away games are in one of those towns.
  • Grade 3 and above split into Boys team(s) and Girls team(s).  At this level, our teams are part of the Nashoba Valley Youth Soccer League (NVYSL).  We must follow the strict guidelines associated with the league, including the early registration of teams and players.  At this level, they practice twice a week and Away games could be in any town within the league.
  • Registration Timeframes are based on Nashoba Valley Youth Soccer League's schedule...
    • Fall Soccer Registration is usually done in June, with a deadline in July.
    • Spring Soccer Registration is usually done in December, with a deadline in January.
  • We are an organization run by Volunteers, from administration to coaches.  We welcome you to join us in our soccer program for our children of Berlin.  You can volunteer during the registration process for your child or you can contact the presidentPlease see the Contacts page for information.

Goals and Philosophy

The Berlin Youth Soccer Association provides opportunities to play soccer for all children living in Berlin, attending school in Berlin, or who have at least one parent residing in Berlin.


Goals for Berlin Youth Soccer Participants

  • Fun

  • Learning to play soccer

  • Social interaction with friends

  • Teamwork and Sportsmanship

  • Open participation by all

  • Healthy physical activity

  • Increased self-confidence


Philosophy

ALL training for young players should be done WITH the ball to produce soccer players that have superior touch and technique. Any fitness that is needed occurs from playing and "soccer ball touch" aerobics, drills and games need to be done at full speed. Incorporates the "ball" in all aspects of training, so each player is exposed to hundreds of ball touches at each training session.
