    UPDATE 3/13/2020

    Thank you for signing up for the 2020 Spring season.  As most everyone is aware the COVID-19 concerns have been impacting major sporting events, schools, and large gatherings in general.  Indiana Soccer League (ISL) is our governing body and last night the commissioner of the league postponed all soccer related practices and games until April 2nd.  We will receive additional information from ISL by March 27th with guidance about resuming the spring season.

     

    At this time PCYSA is POSTPONING not cancelling the spring season and as such we will not be refunding any registrations until further notice.  I appreciate everyone's love for soccer and hope you all understand that we are all working through this together.  We need our community to stay strong and take the proper precautions to protect our community from this contagious virus.

     

    Below is the guidance PCYSA received from ISL last night.

     

    COVID-19 Update as of 3-13-2020

    Indiana Soccer’s ISL, Select League and cup activity is suspended immediately through April 2nd and Indiana Soccer strongly recommends that all member clubs suspend soccer practice and play immediately through April 2nd.  Indiana Soccer will continue to diligently follow this fast-developing situation and will re-evaluate and communicate not later than March 27th regarding activity beyond April 2nd.   Please remain diligent as you go about your day to day activities and follow the CDC’s illness prevention recommendations - https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/prevention-treatment.html

    COVID-19 Plans

    UPDATE - Additional Information from ISL:

     

    To all teams,

    ISL/Select schedule status & Cup Self-scheduled games -in response to the current Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic (3/12/2020):

    All ISL games are proceeding as scheduled.  Should a game schedule be compromised due to a closed facility, please contact George Perry, the ISL commissioner george@soccerindiana.org.  The ISL staff will work with all stakeholders and apply best efforts to find an alternate playing venue.
    Questions about Cup self-scheduled games should be sent to the Cup Chair, Angel Hall, angel@soccerindiana.org.

    A review of current recommendations by the CDC and other government medical professionals suggest that we should not attend large, indoor assemblies, and that we should avoid crowding when possible.  Fortunately, ISL games are played outdoor with a modest number of people in attendance which, does not conflict with the CDC's current recommendations. However, ISL recommends that attendees avoid crowding while at the game.  Choose to spread out on the sidelines and remain 3 or more feet away from others.  Elect to avoid crowded pre and post-game assemblies during these times of elevated transmission concern. Indiana Soccer, and ISL will monitor the CDC and other high-level medical professionals' recommendations and adjust accordingly.
    Indiana Soccer strongly recommends that the pre-game, center-of-the-field assembly and the post-game congratulatory exchange continue, without the conventional handshake until further notice.  This omission of handshaking extends to referees, coaches, managers and parents until further notice.

    Indiana Soccer continues to urge the Indiana Soccer family to remain diligent in protecting themselves and their immediate families from COVID-19 infection.  The following link provides access to prevention and control information about this novel virus:  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/communication/index.html

    Thank you,
    George Perry III
    ISL Commissioner

     

     

    At this time we will continue with practices, and the season starting as scheduled.  This is subject to change though as guidance from US soccer and local organizations information changes.  

     

    Here is a message from US Soccer:

     

    With the increasing number of cases of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) being reported across the world, U.S. Soccer's leadership has reviewed and will continue to monitor all domestic programming and competitions. As part of this review, we are working closely in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and international agencies including the State Department, United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee (USOPC), International Olympic Committee (IOC) and FIFA in real time to guide decisions on travel and participation. Our main priority is the safety and well-being of our players, coaches and referees and we will continue to update you as the situation requires.

    Best Practices for Health:
    There is currently no vaccine to prevent the Coronavirus. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed. Everyday preventive actions should be taken:

     

    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
    • Stay home when you are sick.
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
    • Follow the CDC's recommendations for using a facemask.
      • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including Coronavirus.
      • Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms to help prevent the spread of the disease.
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

     

    Additionally, there are a number of different resources and communications from the CDC regarding the Coronavirus that you can watch HERE.

    Our primary commitment and focus at all times is the health and safety of our U.S. Soccer family.
