Summer 2020 Phase 2 Protocols

Families – We have instituted new health and safety protocols in preparation for the upcoming summer 2020 season. We developed these protocols based on guidance from the CDC, USA Softball, Melrose city policies, and a registered nurse at a renowned Boston hospital.

Three Cheers for Summer Softball!

Our summer season will begin after the Fourth of July and play through late August. 

  • The health and safety of our players is our first priority. And, MYS will strictly enforce health & safety guidelines

  • MYS will have in-town leagues & teams for 8U, 10U, and 12U

  • The 14U team will be in the Middle-Essex travel league

  • The official schedule is TBD

Leagues by Age

Per USA Softball rules, MYS leagues are based on age. The age qualification is based on the player’s age on January 1, 2020. For example, a player who is 10 on January 1, 2020 will play in the 10U league even if she turns 11 later in the 2020 calendar year.

Age ranges by league:

  • 15U:  born between 1/1/04  -  12/31/06
  • 12U:  born between 1/1/07  -  12/31/08
  • 10U:  born between 1/1/09  -  12/31/10
  • 8U:  born between 1/1/11  -  12/31/13
  • T-ball:  born between 1/1/14  -  12/31/15
