Fall 2020 Soccer Registration Information & COVID-19

August 12, 2020

To: EYSA Players and Families

During our most recent Estacada Youth Soccer Association (EYSA) board meeting we came to the difficult decision to cancel this upcoming season. There were several factors to consider that weighed heavily in our decision. The uncertainty that COVID-19 has brought forth led to a massive decrease in player and coach enrollment which made forming teams practically impossible. When you couple it with the Governors Phase 1 directives and the guidelines set forth by OYSA, soccer practices and games would look nothing like prior years. Some of those guidelines included restrictions on group sizes, no sharing of equipment, social distancing on the field, no contact, no touching the ball (with hands), and no scrimmages were some of the challenges that we had to weigh before going forward.

The alternative to canceling the season would be to charge you a registration fee with drill only practices and an abbreviated season with far less games than before. Though we desperately wanted to provide some type of activity for the children, the board did not believe that this would be a very productive course, or that it would be wholly enjoyable for the kids and parents. We hope you understand the difficult decision that we had to make. There are just too many factors to navigate that were outside of our control.

The Estacada School District has told EYSA that the fields and grounds are open for use by the public. Therefore, we have provided this information to current and prior coaches.  Please know they may be reaching out to contact you if they are interested in working with their team(s) independent of EYSA.  This is not a guarantee, but we wanted you to know.

Thank you for understanding and we look forward to seeing you in the fall of 2021!

For any questions or concerns please feel free to contact our Publicity Chair at [email protected].

Sincerely,

EYSA Board of Directors
