Dear Pottsgrove Soccer Family,

As many of you know, on Thursday Governor Wolf highly recommended sports not be played in Pennsylvania- until at least January 2021. His recommendation included both recreational club sports and school sports, K-12. On Thursday night, EPYSA (Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer Association) held an emergency board meeting to discuss the future of our fall soccer season. EPYSA fully supports continuing with the fall soccer season. EPYSA has allowed individual clubs to make their own decision as to continue their fall season or to discontinue play until 2021. EPYSA will continue to support individual clubs, leagues, and competitive play.

The Pottsgrove Soccer Club (PSC) board, has decided to continue with our fall soccer season. We are carefully following the stages provided to us by EPYSA to provide a safe return to play. PSC does, and will continue to, follow and enforce safety protocols. We currently follow EPYSA’s action plan, along with a club specific action plan should situations related to Covid-19 arise. The EPYSA website lists all available Covid-19 information and the club action plan will be available on the club website shortly. Please keep in mind the information PSC receives changes daily. If EPYSA changes their guidance on this matter, we will follow their recommendations. In addition, we as a club will continue to monitor the situation and review all information made available to us.

Please look out for more information about the PSC Fall soccer season in the near future.

Thank you all for your continuing support of Pottsgrove Soccer Club!

Sincerely,
PSC Board of Directors

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
 
When will Pottsgrove Soccer practices begin?
Practices can begin once we enter the “Green” phase

When can soccer games begin?
There are multiple stages which we must go through before we are able to play competitive soccer.  However, if we adhere to all the guidelines set forth by EPYSA and the State of Pennsylvania, then we are hopeful that games may resume in August.

Do I need to take my child's temperature prior to a game/practive?
Yes.  We all have to do our part to ensure a long and successful soccer season with no interuptions due to a coronavirus outbreak.  Parents should assume the responsibility of monitoring your child's health.  We are encouraging everyone to take responsibility for a safe and cautious return to play seriously.  That includes doing your part to keep sick players home.

Will masks be required?  
Current EPYSA guidelines state masks will be required for coaches, referees and players on the bench. As of now, players on the field will NOT have to wear masks.
