Marion Mattapoisett Rochester Youth Soccer (formerly MRYS), run by the Marion Recreation Department, welcomes Eric Parada of the Boston Bolts as the new Director of Soccer Operations. Coach Parada is a professional development coach with experience coaching soccer players and parents in soccer ranging from U4 to Open Men’s divisions. MMRYS will benefit not only from Eric’s extensive knowledge but also from his long standing affiliation with the FC Boston Bolts and Scorpion SC soccer clubs and their team of coaches.
Registration is now open for the Fall Soccer Recreation Program, which starts at age 3 and goes through U13 divisions. Several meet and greet registration events will be held over the summer and registration forms can be found on the website, mryouthsoccer.org, and on the Marion Recreation website, marionrecreation.com.
Also look for several registration drop-off locations in the Tri-Town area including the Ropewalk Plaza in Mattapoisett; check the website for updated locations.
In addition to the Recreation Program, MMRYS is actively recruiting for all Town Travel Team age groups. The travel teams had a great experience in the Maple Premier League last year but MMRYS is excited to announce their acceptance into the South Shore Soccer League. This league, which is expanding into the south coast area and is one of the most established and respected leagues in Massachusetts, will afford the kids an opportunity to play at a more competitive level but still close to home. Check the website for Try Out dates or email questions or interest to email@example.com. Travel team divisions include U9 Boys and Girls and are available as numbers warrant through U19.
MMRYS has also teamed up with Seaside Soccer to offer soccer camps to be held all summer long at locations convenient to all Tri-Town families and kids. Seaside Soccer Training is an established organization dedicated to the progression and improvement of both novice and advanced soccer in the Buzzards Bay region. More information about the camp can be found at Seaside Soccer’s Facebook page.
While focus will be on development of players at a recreation level, educating coaches and growing the program to a year round opportunity, under the leadership of Eric Parada and his Boston Bolt connections, MMRYS CLUB level for players that are looking to compete at an even higher level will be a possibility in the future. With all the exciting changes, MMRYS expects to be a center for great Youth Soccer in Massachusetts.
