Mount Washington Valley Soccer Club

Fall Academy


We are excited to again offer our Fall Academy Program. Cost is $50

The primary focus for our Sunday morning program is the development of soccer players in a fun environment for ages u3 to u12. All Sessions are at the Kennett Middle School. The program begins Sunday September 13th and ends with our annual Pugg-a-Palooza on Sunday October 18th.  No session October 11th.  

It is the desire of Mount Washington Valley Soccer Club to continue to engage our players, parents, and communities in the game of soccer in a responsible way for this season’s Fall Academy. When possible, we encourage smaller group sizes and/or larger field setups to allow for the distancing of participants and observers. We will be closely monitoring COVID-19 cases in the surrounding area and if needed, we’ll adjust our operations accordingly. Updates will be posted on this site.

Guidelines for Fall Academy:

  • Ages 6+ need to wear a mask to the field. Once players and coaches are on the field, masks can be removed. We request parents continue to wear their masks during the session.
  • We ask that all players pack their own hand sanitizer. We will also have limited hand sanitizer available at the field. 
  • Players should pack a dark and light shirt as pinnies will not be available.
  • Scrimmages will be 4v4 or less.
  • Avoid high-fives, fist bumps and unnecessary physical contact.
  • Coches will use rings, spots or orange cones as “home base” to keep children spread out when possible.
  • Coaches will be the only ones to clean up and put away equipment; ie. cones and goals.
  • Parents and coaches will remind children about the importance of keeping safe distances when practicing skills.
  • Practice social distancing by staying 6 feet away from others. 
  • Stay home when you are sick and keep your children home from soccer if they are sick.
  • Please review complete COVID-19 Guidelines here.

MWVSC strongly believes financial hardship should not prevent players from participating in the club programs. Player/Parents are encouraged to speak confidentially with a club board member and/or Kelly Gagnon. The club will work to determine a mutually beneficial solution.

The Mt. Washington Valley Soccer Club is committed toward not only developing high-level players, but coaches and parents as well. It views itself primarily as an educational organization dedicated to the betterment of the game of soccer in the Mt. Washington Valley, New Hampshire, Western Maine, and nationally.


Parents are encouraged to review our Code of Conduct with their players prior to the start of each practice. We value sportsmanship and take it seriously.


Parking - Please use the entrance to Kennett Elementary School and park in the Elementary lot (see map). Plan on arriving early because it takes some time to walk to the field.

Refund Policy

As a result of the postponement and cancelation of sporting events as a government-mandated response to the Coronavirus (Covid-19), MWVSC has implemented a specific refund policy to address the uncertainty into deposits and fees for the 2020-2021 season.  MWVSC will refund fees proportional to that part of the season that does not take place.  

For our Sunday morning Fall Academy, we will refund $10 for each session that is canceled due to government-mandated response to the Coronavirus. There is not a refund for weather cancelations.  

Should any family express a critical need for a full refund, MWVSC will draw from our Rocco scholarship fund to meet this need.
