The Millis Soccer Club was founded in 1982 as a nonprofit organization to provide our town's young soccer players with an opportunity to continue developing their skills after they've aged out of recreational programs, but before they reach the high school level of play. Our players range in age from 8 years old (U9) to under 16 years old (U16).
We belong to the Boston Area Youth Soccer Association league, known as BAYS, which is part of the Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association (MYSA), the governing body of soccer clubs within the Commonwealth.
Our club's mission is to provide players with a higher level of competitive play within the BAYS league framework.
While BAYS encourages competition, it also seeks balance to ensure equity among the teams. To accomplish this, BAYS maintains multiple divisions of play based on the performance of the teams. The Millis Soccer Club places teams where we believe they will be competitive and challenged to succeed.
What you need to get started
Registration is open to all children who live in Millis or who attend Millis schools. To be eligible to play, a child must be in 3rd grade or higher.
Although we are still contending with COVID-related uncertainties, we have opened registration for the Fall 2020 season and remain hopeful that it will take place. Please click on the "Click here to register!" button at the top right of this page to get started, although please be aware of the following changes in procedure for this season:
- ALL players will be placed on a waitlist. This way, if the season is canceled, you will not be responsible for payment.
- If we are certain that the season will start, we will notify you in August and request that you make a payment or use any rolled-over Spring season credit.
- If the season begins and we have to cancel partway through, we will prorate the amount of the season played, minus $8 for processing fees, and send you a refund for that amount.
Players are required to play in matching uniforms consisting of shirt, shorts and socks. For the Fall 2020 season, all players will be responsible for purchasing a new soccer kit, consisting of two wicking shirts, personalized with player number (one maroon and one silver), and one pair of black shorts at a price of $45. Players will also wear white soccer socks, which are not included in the new kit. The league requires protective shin guards, and soccer cleats are strongly recommended. If you have questions about the soccer kit, please contact Reg Wilcox.
Where we play
The league plays a 10-game schedule in the fall and spring seasons, and all games are played on Saturday. Times vary depending on the age bracket and the host club.
Our home games are played at Oak Grove Farm unless otherwise specified. Most of our teams practice there, too.
Millis Soccer Club teams may travel to opponents' fields as far as Bedford, Belmont and Milton, or as close as Medway, Medfield and Holliston.
