We are closely monitoring the rapidly evolving COVID-19 (also known as Coronavirus) situation. We wanted to send a quick note to our members regarding this growing concern. Player safety will always be a top priority.
US Youth Soccer and Iowa Soccer have made the decision to suspend all league and sanctioned club tournaments through April 15, 2020. Fortunately, this will have a minimal affect our recreational and academy programs.
At this point in time, based on current guidance from the Iowa Department of Public Health, all planned Recreational, Academy, and Sporting Iowa camps and training's will run as scheduled. We would stress that all players, coaches and parents help prevent the spread of illness by following simple daily precautions including washing hands frequently, covering coughs and sneezes, and staying home when ill.
We truly appreciate everyone's patience and understanding through this very unique challenge. We will keep you informed of any new guidance from Iowa Soccer or state and local public health officials that changes our current plans.
