To all our members,
While we navigate through these unprecedented times, please know every decision we make as a club, we are trying to keep your athlete's health and well-being first and foremost. MYSA has currently postponed all games, meetings, trainings and tournaments until April 30th. At that time, they will meet and see where we go from there. We will be sending out an email at the end of the week with more information for all registered players.
Thank you and stay safe!
We understand how bad all the kids want to get back on the pitch, and we are working with everyone to be able to do so as soon as possible. As many have heard, baseball is being allowed to do limited training now. They are considered a non-contact sport while soccer is considered a contact sport. It is difficult to maintain social distancing (6’ ) and have practices. We hope that once we reach Phase II we can hold practices. The guidance that MYSA (our state governing body)has received is that we can’t have games (contact) until we reach Phase III. The club will reach out to Kidsport this week to discuss availability of fields at Phase II. (Because Flathead County may have separate rules from the governor). We may be able to have organized training with the older players starting at Phase II because they understand social distancing. Unfortunately at this time, the Governor’s office has not set dates for Phase II or Phase III. We are hoping Phase II will open around May 8th, but we will have to wait and see.
In the meantime, we encourage players to keep their foot on the ball and practice at home. This Youtube video is great for getting in a ton of touches on the ball and only 10 minutes a day.
As soon as we get the green light to practice and train, we will reach out to everyone.
We hope you are all well and enjoying your time with your families!
