We are all eager to return to the green grass of soccer fields across the state, but the pandemic remains as our first consideration for the safety of our players, parents, coaches and volunteers.
We are watching NC in the first phase of relaxing some restrictions, and the data should tell us the story later this month. We are also watching other states and other sports react with more or sometimes less restrictive plans.
We continue to live under a suspension of all NCYSA activities. The following decisions will guide your plans:
Please share ideas, best practices, and any concerns through email to our staff, our webinars, and directly to your peers.
It is our goal to maintain a spirit of fun and enjoyment, while making sure we comply with all State rules in order to better protect the health of our community. We are excited to get started with these initiatives, and we hope this phased approach to play will take us back to playing the game we love sooner versus later.
We will have a checkpoint before June 1 as we watch the NC Government, CDC, USYS, and other guidance. We hope to see you all safe, healthy and on the field soon. We Are Youth Soccer!
Please stay safe and use best of practices during this very difficult time,
The NCYSA Executive Board
