6/2/2020 update: NJYS Youth Soccer suspension will be lifted June 22, 2020.
As of 05/19/2020, New Jersey Youth Soccer has issued the following statement. MSC will remain in touch with all its members with respect to tryouts for the 2020/2021 season and any next steps. Stay safe. Hope to see you soon on the fields.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the communication from our local, state and federal government about social and physical distancing, NJ Youth Soccer is extending its suspension of all affiliated and sanctioned soccer activities statewide. Our primary focus continues to be the safety and welfare of our players, coaches, referees and communities. For our member organizations (towns, clubs and leagues), this suspension includes, but is not limited to, all in-person events (e.g. practices, training, scrimmages, clinics, tryouts, games and tournaments). Moving forward, we will provide frequent updates as we monitor this issue daily and evaluate the opportunity to return to activity.
As US Youth Soccer State Associations across the country begin to institute new guidelines for youth sports activities, we are taking similar steps while following the directives from our Governor Murphy and the State of New Jersey. We trust many of us are all eager to get back on the field and start playing. That said, we need to be cognizant of our community’s rules and requirements. It is our goal to maintain a spirit of fun and enjoyment, while making sure we comply with all local rules to better protect the health of our community.
We hope to see you all safe, healthy and on the field soon. We Are New Jersey Youth Soccer!
