COVID-19 update on Soccer operations- update 5/22/2020

MYSA just announced this morning that all soccer leagues have been cancelled for the summer season. MYSA's thought is that the stay safe guidelines that have been established by the Governors office, MDH and CDC will not allow them to maintain the integrity of the leagues and games. MYSA hopes that we can have a normal Fall season.  We wanted to let you know right away so you can make any alternative plans for the summer now that you wont have soccer. 

There will be additional communications coming out from the board next week after our board meeting on Wednesday. We will be discussing alternate plans for the soccer season as well as other items that relate to the cancellation of games this summer.

Please stay tuned for any further communications as we get everything sorted from this cancellation. 

Below is a link that has some good information for athletes in this difficult time dealing with Coronavirus.  Click the link for information on how to cope with this stressful event.


GRSC 2020 SUMMER ACADEMY TRAINING

Great River Soccer Club has developed training sessions two nights a week for 6 weeks for players that choose to continue development in preparation for potential 2021 tryouts, fall club soccer, or school seasons. Following MYSA guidelines of entering Phase 2 of their Return-to-Play Plan, our club goal is to continue player development in anticipation of Phase 3 and Phase 4 for the Fall/school seasons and to reduce skill regression before a return to a more regular soccer year.

 

Cost: $75 for 6 weeks ($6.25 a session)*.

Family discount: Second family member $65, Third or more family member $55 each.

*Because the 2020 season is canceled and some competitive team fees including a portion of coaching fees will be refunded (and your team coaches are no longer being paid) this fee pays for coaching fees for coaches involved in this training; as well as other required items including sanitation supplies.  

 

Location: Bertram Athletic Complex Soccer Fields
(Thanks to the city of Monticello for offering these for free this year)

 

Practices will be Monday & Wednesday, beginning the week of June 15th and concluding the week of July 27th. There will be a break for the Fourth of July holiday.
