In addition to the season updates below, on 9/3 there was a new executive order that allows soccer to return. At this point while the new executive order allows us to play, there will be new mandates and soccer for the time will look a little different. All players WILL BE REQUIRED to wear a mask or a neck gaiter at all times, including during play ~ no exceptions.
Also at this time, even though training can return we must maintain a physical distance and when we cannot, a face covering must be worn. MSYSA has stated that no contact training activities (direct or indirect) nor scrimmaging is allowed at this time.
Rec In-House U5-U11 has been cancelled. As difficult as it was to make this decision, with the safety of players and families in mind and several other factors such as how to keep spectators at the field to a minimum, ensuring face coverings are worn by both players and spectators, making sure all coaches have necessary training and sanitation supplies, scheduling games and several other factors, we found it really hard to proceed at this point. We remain hopeful that we will be able to return to play safely in the Spring of 2021. A full refund will be given to families who had a child registered to play in these age groups.
GLCSL Rec U13 and above season is still on and will continue to rely on MSYSA & GLCSL for updates in regards to when and how their season will resume. If you have a child registered in this age group that won't be playing due to COVID or COVID requirements we will need to know by the end of day 9/13 to process your refund. No refunds will be issued after that date unless GLCSL or MSYSA decides to cancel the season and at that point RPYSC will need to see if refunds will be partial or full depending on what MSYSA and GLCSL refunds back to RPYSC.
GVSA Select and Premier seasons are still on and will continue to rely on MSYSA & GVSA for updates in regards to when and how their season will resume. If you have a child registered on a Select or Premier team that won't be playing due to COVID or COVID requirements please let your coach or team manager know ASAP. Players have only incurred the single season fee at this point so no refunds should be expected as they are still able to play the spring season unless your player is only playing a single season.
