The Latest CCSSL News
At the April Board meeting, it was voted to reestablish Division 4. This decision was made after many months of outreach to determine if players who were no longer participating would come back if Division 4 returned. That response coupled with a look at how we might break down age groups determined that we would have sufficient numbers to be able to have three teams in D4. Although the age groups are still under discussion, we are very likely to use the following makeup:
Utilizing the Division Placement Policy, which has been posted since last autumn, tentative placement of players in all divisions has taken place. Taking into account ability levels, current players who were eligible to play in a younger division have been notified and that information has been passed on to the Age Reassignment Committee (ARC) who has made their decisions on these requests. Those players have been notified of the decisions. Likewise, those players who fell in the lower range in the ratings may be designated to move up to the next older division. Those contacts have not been made yet but will be shortly. Everyone’s cooperation is greatly appreciated.
This change in policy was made to allow some longtime players who had stopped playing in a competitive division the opportunity to get back out on the field. All of the work and effort that went into this decision was made for the good of the league as a whole. I want to especially thank some former Division III players who volunteered to move up to the new Division IV to help bring this effort to reality. I also want to thank Van Khachadoorian for doing the majority of the outreach to make D4 happen. We look forward to seeing some of our former players back competing in games.

Sometimes, we only see our fellow players out on the field. However, there are many interesting aspects off the field, such as this article from the Worcester Business Journal about one of our players and Board members, Ron Scarborough. You can read about Ron's work at Becker College by checking out the link below.
Welcome to Our Player Profile Form!
We are looking to collect information on our players so that we can develop a profile that tells about the varied backgrounds of players. None of this information will be used to talk about individual players. It will allow us build a composite profile of the players in our league for public relations and fundraising purposes only.
