Canceling BAYS Spring 2020 Schedule

Hello All Town Presidents, Treasurers, Registrars, Travel Directors, and Referee Assignors,

It is with great reluctance that I share this news. Based on Governor Charlie Baker’s decision to close Massachusetts schools through June, the Boston Area Youth Soccer League’s Board of Directors has decided to cancel its Spring 2020 schedule.

Laws of the Game Change Summary - 2020

On July 1, 2019 amendments to the Laws of the Game (LOTG) were introduced by IFAB and adopted by FIFA. 

Beginning with the Spring 2020 season, BAYS is adopting the LOTG amendments, with some BAYS modifications as noted. Referees will be expected to understand the current LOTG and to apply them in the matches they officiate. Coaches should also familiarize themselves with these new laws.
