With the increasing number of cases of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) being reported across the world, AYSA’s leadership will continue to monitor the situation closely. We will be following local city and state government agencies as well as Minnesota Youth Soccer Association’s response regarding soccer games and other AYSA events.
All summer soccer leagues (competitive and recreational) that usually run from May-July have been cancelled as of Friday, May 22. Contact your local club coordinator for more information.
A decision regarding the AYSA Fall League season that begins August 1 will be made at a later date.
A decision regarding Sessions 2, 3, and 4 of our Summer Little NetBusters program will be made no later than July 1.
All board meetings are cancelled until further notice. All coordinator meetings are cancelled until further notice. All communication with coordinators will be via email.
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.
A Reminder of 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.
- 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.
