and read more from Massachusetts Youth Soccer tournament summary here:  

Cape Ann’s Head Coach, Kyle Hurd (GHS 2011): “Composure, bringing a sense of urgency and being able to play with controlled aggression were key for us. Being able to keep your head and your wits about you to open up space, and not just to sprint forward, was key. There’s a lot of preparation, some yelling and some headaches. We struggled in the middle of the season, but after that we turned it around immediately and hit the ground running.”


and from Essex County Youth Soccer Assoc (ECYSA):

Dear Players, Families and Friends of ECYSA,  

We began the season in April with 502 teams across five age groups and four divisions.  We battled a tough weather season but we managed to get most of the games played and as a result of all of the work of each of our 32 organizations and hundreds of coaches and volunteers we provided an excellent soccer experience to over 8000 players.  

This last weekend we closed out our 2019 Spring season with the MA Tournament of Champions(MTOC).    ECYSA had 14 divisional champions and 5 wild cards representing our league at MTOC.  Eleven of those teams advanced out of pool play and into the semi-finals.  Five teams advanced to the final and one team won a State Championship.  (G10 B MTOC 2 – Cape Ann United Longshoremen) ECYSA also had a team recognized with the Sportsmanship Award (G8 G MTOC 2 – Woburn Warriors).  It was a great weekend and ECYSA was represented well.  

Below I have listed all of the 2019 ECYSA Champions and wildcard winners. Congratulations to all! 

On behalf of the entire ECYSA Board, thanks for a great season.  Looking forward to seeing everyone back on the fields in the fall. 

Dean Sidell

ECYSA President
