Spring Soccer Update - May 22nd

After considerable deliberation, we have decided to cancel the Spring Travel Season. As a result of this decision, we have initiated the refund process with our vendors. Please remember that refunds of fees paid to the Club are separate from team dues and we ask each team to address their refund process as appropriate.

We know that refunds from Rec/FV have not yet been credited to your cards. We are working daily with our vendors to move these along, but a combination of volume and a hold-up with bulk refund processing has caused a log-jam with their software. Please know that we are trying to push these through. As we get more information, we will provide you with updates.

We are continuing to work through multiple options for travel team formation/tryouts for the Fall season. Please keep an eye on your in-box for updates.

Please also know that we are exploring Summer options for SSC and if those become feasible we will share them with you.

Spring Soccer Update - May 8th

After considerable deliberation, we have decided to cancel the Spring Rec and Farmington Valley Seasons. As a result of this decision, we have initiated the refund process with our vendors. We appreciate your patience as that process moves forward and refunds are credited to your credit card.

Please also know that we are exploring Summer Rec options for SSC and if those become feasible we will share them with you.

With respect to Travel, while we recognize the realities of the situation, we are not yet formally canceling the Spring. We are continuing to work with our State and District level partners and should have further information soon.

We will also have an announcement regarding tryouts for the 2020/2021 season in the coming days.

CJSA Coronavirus Statement - May 21st - Suspension of all Activities

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the communication from our local, state and federal government, Connecticut
Junior Soccer Association 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). As the state of Connecticut begins to slowly
reopen, we look forward to seeing how youth soccer might be addressed in phase 2, "Selected youth sports" (June 20).

US Youth Soccer has established a Return to Play committee led by Tim Turney (USYS Vice President and US Soccer BOD
member). Understanding that each State Association will have individual variances depending on local situations (some
states ready to return earlier than others), these guidelines are being established so we can have some level of consistency
where possible.

CJSA has taken similar steps while following the directives from Governor Lamont and local health officials. We are
constructing return to play guidelines, utilizing those created by USYS, USOPC, US Soccer and other state associations in
preparation for our return. In addition, we are compiling training sessions that can be utilized in your clubs while adhering to
any social distancing restrictions.

We understand many are 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.

During this difficult time, we have been working on ways to provide opportunity and value to soccer families that wish to stay active and engaged with soccer during our current situation. Unfortunately the soccer season is currently suspended until May 20th and will be reassessed closer to that time, but many soccer clubs have already cancelled their Spring soccer season. Therefore, we have put together the VST (Virtual Soccer Training) program to support your soccer development and involvement from home. The program includes:
  • Access to a private online group app with other VST players for accountability & motivation.
  • Two backyard training session videos per week and one live weekly goal setting meeting
