Spring 2020

Hello Soccer Families, 

We hope this email finds you all doing well and staying  healthy. Thank you all for your patience with us as we have talked collectively amongst ourselves to try and decide the best course of action to take for our soccer community and the upcoming spring season. 

Over the weekend we all spoke and have sadly decided to cancel our spring season. This was not an easy choice, but it is the best one during this unprecedented time. Our players and their families health and safety is ALWAYS our top priority. We had hopes to still hold some sort of season later this spring/early summer, if conditions allowed. Unfortuantely many of us are left without fields currently amongst many other factors we felt would cripple this idea. 

We look forward to holding pick up soccer games this summer, or a summer celebration of soccer when permitted and safe for all. We will keep you all updated. 
 
In regards to refunds, all players who were registered and played in the fall season will be receiving a coupon code to use for a credit for next year's soccer season. It will arrive in the next month along with registration information regarding the upcoming 2020/21 soccer season. If you would prefer to have a check given to you in lieu of the credit (for $12.50), please contact your local AYSO representative and we would be happy to assist. 

Any player who had ONLY signed up for the spring season will be getting a full refund from our local AYSO treasurer. 

We can't wait to be able to see you all again soon and to get those kids feet back on the ball with their teams! In the meantime there are plenty of fun drills they can do at home to keep them working on their individual skills! Fall soccer registration information will be sent out soon. Registration will run, June 1st - July 31st. 

Stay healthy and stay safe friends! 

Best Regards, 
AYSO Region 862
