Last two winters blessed us with very low snow levels.  We were able to play all winter long.   In Winter month we play at this field:

VMAC-2014-02-08-SAT-II*** V M A C ***

It is located near Bentley College at 385 Forest Street in Waltham.
Main parking lot is closed.
Park behind the tennis courts and cross over to 3 fields complex behind a one-story building.
Use GPS for better results.

*** Our Seasons ***

We have 3 seasons in a year:

Spring Season: Jan – April
Summer Season: May – August
Autumn Season: Sep – December




Read about our history of PERMITS here.




What about Skyline?

We will use Skyline, when snow piles high.

Snow melts mush faster at Skyline, due to a “compost” effect from the garbage bellow.

Many people already know the location.

It is sometimes very windy on a hill.

Thesre are goals of 2 sizes – full size and medium size.

We were kicked out of there several times in November and March.







**** VMAC ****

It has small goals that is a must during low attendance winter months.

Park is built and dedicated in 2005.

Fields are phased in over the years.

Lines are crisp.

Many people already played there and love the field:
Oleg, Vadim L. and Nelson to name a few.

It has 3 full-size artificial fields with lines.

It also has 2 junior-size artificial fields with lines – simply amazing!

It means, if one field is taken, we always can play on other fields. That is a very important argument.

Complex has 3 different goal sizes (including Handball size)
Once again: It is important to have smaller goals, when attendance is low.

Our people were never kicked out of there.

Parking next to the fields is closed, but there is a plentiful parking about 75 yards away.




This weekend – No Statistics!





Research by Lyonya G:

I’ve done a little research, called Brookline, Newton, Waltham and Boston (for West Roxbury)
Departments of Parks and Recreation. Mostly bad, some good news.
Here’s what I’ve found out
Millennium Park, off Rt 1 in W. Roxbury was considered in previous years, and its actually a decent option … for winter time.
Except it’s on high grounds and it is always windy there. However right around this time of the year the fields get filled up there. I didn’t get a call back from Boston’s parks/rec permits dept, but the greeting on their line says that permit deadline passed and one can apply at the end of the summer for the fall, etc.
Maybe Cuneyt can still check out what’s the story there – maybe ask people who walk dogs in the morning (always a good source) whether all fields have been full.
Skyline and Brown:
Starting this coming weekend it is the beginning of the season for permit holders, both Saturday and Sunday are booked 10 am to 7 pm by several school and league teams. This applies to synthetic fields at Skyline and Brown.
Brown’s grass fields are off limits for another 1-2 weeks depending on turf conditions and police monitors those fields.
Waltham VMAC complex. The synthetic fields are booked starting Feb 1 according to them, and have not been used so far by permit holders because of the snow. They will start official play this weekend, both days are booked, till 5:30 pm. They have some times on weekend available, @ $50/hr for the field, and evenings only.
HOWEVER .. the good news out of all this – the 2 grass fields that are abating the parking lot at VMAC belong to Gain Academy,
not Waltham town. They are always empty, anyone can play there and they have goals (although only large ones).
More data would be good to have for the future – if some of you guys or people you know who live nearby all these fields,
it’d be good to check what’s happening in the mornings on weekend anyway. (Maybe some permit holders don’t use it and parks/rec depts have outdated info).
But I think Waltham is our best shot for now.
Incidentally all these fields are available in July and August, while schools are off, so for next couple/few weeks
we need to be patient, let Warren field turf reestablish itself.

  1. Impossible to please everyone – some people will just never be happy, no matter the arrangements. Here’re some of my points/suggestions:

    1. It’s Great to have someone like Alex to coordinate, report, etc., and for many years at that;
    2. Seems like there are no alternative fields for Weds as Vlad U wrote previously – practices on Weds on all fields, thus Dr Yurik suggestion that most seem to agree to for today;
    (plus Tues and Thurs are too close to Sat and Sun, so Weds is best midweek day for weekend players to have time to recover, etc.);
    3. I am sure there are other fields we can use, likely outside of Newton or Brookline, maybe we should consider;
    4. For overcrowding: it may sound crazy, but what about definitive, say day or 2 in advance, on-line confirmations/reservations for games.
    (First come/first served system? Whoever comes w/out reservation will be left to organize a parallel game. Whoever reserves, but doesn’t come is penalized and
    put at the end of the line when appear next time). Just a thought.

    It’s great that our games became so popular on one hand, but many of us are unhappy that it creates logistical headaches, delays – so let’s think ‘outside of the box’.

  2. Alex, we love you all, but sometimes your English sounds funny. In addition to the now famous “gifted horse” ( darenomu konyu …), you just added “Can’t wait to score!”. In modern US English this type of the phrase is usually referred to a desperate man who has not have sex with the woman for a long time and going to the place where he can easily find someone tonight for that purpose only. Since you are happily married I hope this is not your issue….
