2020 SPRING SEASON CANCELLED - DUE to COVID-19

Hello AYSO Families,

===========SEASON CANCELLATION=====================

The COVID-19 situation has disrupted all of our lives, and these are unprecedented times.  Our board has been following the guidance from AYSO national along with local, state and federal government hoping for a way to hold this season, but our decision point was 4/14/2020 for a variety of reasons, including field availability, ordering of uniforms and more.

After looking at all options for our spring season (postpone, cancel, modify), we do not see a viable way forward. Our board was unanimous in the decision to cancel the season and tournament for 2020, placing the highest priority on the safety of our players, families and volunteers.  Currently we are one of three regions in our area that have made the decision to cancel, and the rest are likely to follow in the coming weeks.

We look forward to a return to normal and getting back on the field in the spring of 2021 with a BIGGER, BETTER and STRONGER region.

==============REFUNDS==============================

Everyone will receive a refund as per our refund policy on our website.  We are now working through a process for refunding the families of over 340 players.  National is working on an automated refund process, which should be rolled out by the end of the month. We understand that current circumstances are straining many families’ finances , but PLEASE, be patient with us – your refund will appear on your card as soon as we are able to make it happen. Those few families who paid by check will hear from us.

=============VOLUNTEERS============================

For everyone who registered as a volunteer, please know that all of your training will be FREE for the remainder of the AYSO season year ending JULY 31st.  Visit https://aysou.org and login with your same registration login account.  AYSO will be placing additional webinars on the site for FREE as well, so please take the time and get your coach certifications for FREE!

=============SCHOLARSHIP PLAYERS====================

We are keeping the applications of our scholarship families on file, so that these players can return in the 2021 season without having to re-apply.

 

Thank you again for your patience, and we’re looking forward to better times.
