Fall 2020 Season - Game Day Reminders

Hello Everyone,

Just a quick reminder about game day details and etiquette as we begin our Fall 2020 season this weekend for most teams.

 

  • Players must wear masks for the game
  • No limit on Parents or Spectators
    • If social distancing cannot be maintained, masks must be worn if not with members of your own family or group.
    • Asking everyone to be smart, use common sense so we can play our games and you can enjoy the somewhat sense of back to normal.
  • Absolutely no disrespecting game officials, coaches, or members from the opposing teams.
    • This is youth soccer, not World Cup play, so please be mindful of comments and attitudes.
    • St. Johns is a great community and we would expect our teams to represent that to those visiting us for games.
  • Remember that the only way games are cancelled due to weather are:
    • Randy Padgett, the SJSC Complex director closes the complex or field if there is 10% or greater coverage of standing water.
    • Game Referees determine the field or current/pending weather conditions to be unplayable or dangerous to play.
    • Lighting or thunder persists past the allowable time frame set by the Refs to complete the game
      • When lighting or thunder is present, all players and spectators are to leave the field/complex and return to their cars for 30 minutes.
      • Typically, if the game is called in the first half, the game will be rescheduled.  If the game is called sometime after halftime, normally the game is considered complete and the current score will stand.
    • The league director/president can cancel all games and would email coaches and community reps prior to making this decision.

Looking forward to a great start to our season and seeing everyone back on the pitch.  Be safe this weekend and enjoy the time with family, friends and the sport we all love.

MSYSA RTP UPDATE 9.16.20
 
September 16, 2020
 
Dear Club and League Representatives:
 
MSYSA is moving all affiliated clubs and leagues into MSYSA Phase 5.5, effective September 19, 2020. Beginning September 19, 2020, games are permitted. In addition, full scrimmages (inter-squad, across the club or outside the club) are permitted, but not recommended, unless all mitigation measures as outlined in MSYSA's Return-To-Play (RTP) guidelines are, and can be, implemented.
 
Pursuant to Executive Order 180, all athletes must wear a facial covering. EO 180 does not exempt athletes from wearing facial coverings due to medical intolerance reasons nor does it authorize medical waivers. As previously relayed, athletes have the option of participating with a facial covering or not participating at this time.
 
MSYSA defines ‘facial covering’ as a clean cloth, fabric, or other soft or permeable material, without holes, that covers both the mouth and nose, including, but not limited to surgical masks, handmade or homemade. Athletes should utilize a facial covering size that comfortably covers both the mouth and nose. Athletes are encouraged to bring more than one facial covering to trainings, practices and games in the event the facial covering is damaged, falls off, gets wet or is bloodied in any way. Note: The use of plastic ‘face shields’ is not permissible as a substitute for facial coverings.
 
MSYSA has received reports of the following: athletes intentionally not placing the facial coverings over their mouth and nose, players immediately pulling their facial coverings down, placing the facial coverings under their chins, hanging the facial coverings from their ears, around their necks or up on their foreheads, etc. If MSYSA continues to receive these reports, a statewide stoppage is likely.
 
As a reminder, all team officials and spectators are required to wear facial coverings, and maintain social distancing, at all times. In addition, referees are expected to wear PPE upon arrival, during pre-game field inspection, team check-in, immediately following games, and until their departure. During games, referees are able to social distance and may wear masks, if desired.
 
Finally, please share gathering size restrictions with your families. For indoor sport competitions (in Michigan), athletes are limited to designating up to 2 guests each. For outdoor sports competitions (in Michigan) athletes are limited to designating up to 2 guests each or not to exceed 100 people, including all athletes, coaches, staff, etc. All sports organizers (clubs and leagues) are responsible for enforcement, as are all adults. The fall season is up to all of you. Thus, please do your part to ensure that our children can have a meaningful fall season.
 
Sincerely,
 
 
Thomas Faro
Executive Director

Player Registration For Fall 2020 League Play Now Closed

Player Registration For Fall 2020 League Play Now Closed

 

The following exceptions are still allowed:

  • ACADEMY (U4-U8) PLAYER REGISTRATION WILL REMAIN OPEN TILL 10/01/2020
     
  • U9-U15 PLAYER - PRACTICE ONLY REGISTRATION WILL REMAIN OPEN TILL 10/1/2020
    • SJSC offers this registration option as a way for players to stay active in their development and potentially join a team mid season when the possibility might exist that roster spots open up on existing teams or new teams are formed within age groups.

      This is a practice only option, meaning players within this registration, are able to practice with the age appropriate team they are assigned, but not play in league games.  Tournament play if the team participates, could be an option for the practice player at additional costs.
