2022-12-18 SU Here are our World cup winners as of 2022:
2022-10-27 TH Both groups are now trying to start earlier to be kick out by regular 10AM season-scheduled games. By in most cases we still can get one of the turf fields.
2021-09-12 MO Tuesday and Thursday games are slowly dying due to earlier sun sets and lower attendance. But every Tuesday and Thursday there is a probability of a game an 17:45 on Warren field.
2020-10-10 SAT – COVID made us to wake up earlier. What seemed to be impossible – just happened overnight, and now we are playing at 8AM on Saturdays. Amazing! That was a quite revolution.
2019-08-17 SAT – Newton South – What a day to be playing! Game started 5:1 for DARKs (Yura D.) Then Stas M. left early and Easy switched to WHITES (Boris M.). In the next 15 minutes score changed to 6:5 for Darks. Easy scored 3 goals. Pretty impressive!

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:
*** V M A C ***
VETERANS MEMORIAL ATHLETIC FIELD COMPLEX
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!

I see you have a sale on the domain stolb.com.
how can i buy it?
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’.
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….
