GYS is a program whose mission is to build strong physical and social skills for the kids through the sport of soccer. GYS provides young players in our community the opportunity to play and enjoy the game of soccer. By ensuring that they learn, compete, and have fun, players will learn valuable physical and social skills that will assist them in life on and off the field. On this site you should be able to find everything you need to know about GYS from team schedules and player registration, to how you can help by volunteering your time. We continue to update the site regularly, so please remember to add a bookmark and visit often.

New guidelines from Gov. Baker take place tomorrow 8/11/2020 and further limit outdoor gatherings to less than 50 people.

On behalf of Groveland Youth Soccer, I wanted to reach out to you regarding the 2020 spring soccer season and the COVID-19 pandemic. We are operating with an abundance of caution and at this time the soccer season will be postponed. We do hope that we can still have a season, but much remains day-to-day. We will continue to follow Mass Youth Soccer, State and Federal guidelines to determine when it is appropriate to begin soccer activities. The health of everyone is a priority of GYS, we will strive to ensure no unnecessary risks are taken.
