2020 Spring Soccer Season Canceled

UpdatedFriday May 1, 2020 byJoe Camarda.

IMPORTANT LIJSL UPDATE, INFORMATION SPRING ’20 SEASON

First, we trust that you are staying safe and healthy in these most difficult times.

Following the recent series of roundtables with all League member club Presidents, ongoing League Board discussions, as well as continued monitoring and assessment of governing authorities’ directives of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, please be advised of the following;

LIJSL Spring ’20 Travel season officially canceled, effective immediately

Only when government authorities (federal, state, municipal), and respective governing bodies of our sport, concur upon healthy return to play, within appropriate protocols, will league related competitions and activities resume.

Specific questions that you may have regarding return to activities, play and individual club policies, should be appropriately directed to your home club.

This most difficult decision, the first of their kind in the League’s proud 54-year history, is clearly surpassed by the sheer unprecedented times and challenges that we all face.

As our communities did in both 2001 and 2012, we must trust that we will find the necessary steps to move forward, together … and that it will be our passion both for our children, as well as our beautiful game, that can, once again, be a guiding light.

 

Please stay safe & healthy,

Board of Directors and League Staff

Long Island Junior Soccer League
