Welcome to Stow Soccer Club, a Massachusetts-based non-profit organization located in Stow, MA, offering fun and enriching soccer opportunities for children of all ages!

Stow / NU Soccer and EEE
Parents of Nashoba United (NU) and Stow Soccer Club (SCC):
As you may be aware, the Massachusetts Department of Public health (DPH) has raised the risk level for Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) in Stow to HIGH. (It  is currently Moderate in Lancaster). 
The current threat is not permanent: EEE risk will decrease when the first frosts begin killing off mosquito populations. But until that time, the NU / SSC Boards recommend proactive and aggressive deterrence to stay safe while we enjoy youth soccer this Fall. 
The Town of Stow sprayed its Athletics fields on Sept 5th (see here: https://www.stow-ma.gov/recreation-department/pages/recreation)
Also, in accordance with DPH suggested safety guidelines, the NU and SSC Board are advising the following policy:
- All Coaches, Parents, Referees, and Players participating or spectating Soccer (or other) activity outside should carry and apply insect repellent in accordance with the DPH recommended guidelines:
"Use a repellent with DEET (N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide), permethrin, picaridin (KBR 3023), IR 3535 or oil of lemon eucalyptus [p-methane 3, 8-diol (PMD)] according to the instructions on the product label. DEET products should not be used on infants under two months of age and should be in concentrations of 30% or less on older children. Oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used on children under three years of age. Permethrin products are intended for use on items such as clothing, shoes, and should not be applied to skin."
- All Evening Soccer activities should conclude by 7:15 p.m. through the week of Sept. 8-14 and 15 minutes earlier each successive week until the first hard frost according to this DPH Table:
