Greetings EMWSL members,
I know it has been a little while since we had an all league email but with a very busy summer soccer season I wanted to check in. We are finishing our spring season over the next two weekends and overall I think it was a
good season. A season that saw many of us getting wet or having games cancelled or postponed. Thank you all for the great competition! Make sure the referee assigner is aware of any games scheduled on the make up date June 9
This summer is chock full of GREAT women’s soccer as we have the
Women’s World Cup
starting in about a week and a half. I know we are all super psyched about this and I am going to work my DVR hard taping games! Let’s GO USA!! Wish I could have gone to France to see the games live!
In July Massachusetts is hosting
in Lancaster MA which is the Adult National Championships and last hosted here in 1999 and 2000. Massachusetts always has a large contingent of teams play in this tournament and we hope with hosting we will have our biggest number yet! Mass teams will be getting a break on entrance fees so sign up quickly! It is great tournament and one I have enjoyed playing in the last 2 years and before that I played when they were in Lancaster last. Teams come from all over the US and they usually have a few international teams and the competition is great and the tournament is a lot of fun.
EMWSL summer season starts in the next 2 weeks and I thank the newly formed Competition Committee for their work with the board to put together the summer brackets. I think the brackets came out well and I look forward to a great summer season! We are looking at a combined D1+2 All Star Game July 21
and a D2+3 All Star game vs the Old Colony League All Star Team in early to mid August. Both opportunities will be great for all involved and I am really excited for the Game with the OC League. Let’s make that happen D2+3!!
All this great women’s soccer this summer!! Keep playing, cheer on Team USA and have a great summer!!
All my best!
