2020 Fall Soccer Update
18 July 2020 

Good afternoon.

First, I want to thank the 269 respondents to our recent survey, which helped us gauge the interest in a Fall Soccer program. The responses we received were evenly distributed across K-3, 4th – 8th, and 9th – 12th and the majority of those that responded are interested in a Fall Soccer program that features full contact, competitive play.

On July 17th, the GEYA Soccer Board voted 6 to 4 in favor of opening registration for a modified and shortened Fall Soccer program. Registration will open on Sunday, July 19th  and it will close on Sunday, August 9th. This should not be read as a guarantee that GEYA will proceed with a Fall season. Instead, this is a provisional plan, which will be subject to a final go/no go vote by August 12th based on further developments related to COVID19.

We will continue to weigh the prevailing guidance from various authorities including the CDC, the governor of Pennsylvania, local government for Chester Country and UUT, local school districts, US Soccer, and Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer. With their guidance and the data trends that develop in the weeks ahead, we will apply our best judgment as parents, coaches, and members of this community. We aim to serve the soccer families in this community responsibly, with the safety of all participants as our primary concern.

Again, a GEYA Fall soccer program is not guaranteed. The COVID19 situation is fluid and the national trends have been alarming. There is a strong possibility that we will opt for cancelation. Accordingly, we encourage you to explore other options that may offer more certainty than we can offer at this time.

While there are many details for us to work through in the next 3 weeks, these are the broad outlines for the Fall program as of right now:


To avoid the hassle of refunds should we ultimately cancel the season, we will not collect any registration fees until we make a final decision by Aug 12th

 If we vote to go hold the Fall season, registration fees will be kept low, as we will only be playing small sided games in a less formal,pick-up type of setting

To keep registration fees low and to minimize the logistical challenges, there will be no uniforms; instead it will be BYO white shirt and dark shirt to each event

Coaches or other volunteers will referee; no formal paid referees

We will follow US Soccer and EPSYA soccer guidelines for returning to play, with details to follow

All participants (players and their families, coaches, league administrators) will have to sign waivers and will be expected to comply with additional safety procedures and protocols, with details to follow

All divisions will likely be run as COED divisions because we expect fewer players to register, but we will adapt as needed when we see the final numbers

Grades K through 3 will be limited to a max of 12 players per field per event (4 v 4 with 4 subs)
Grades 4 through 8 will be limited to a mx of 16 players per field per event (6 v 6 with 4 subs)
Grades 9 through 12 will be limited to a max of 18 players per field per event (7 v 7 with 4 subs)

Be on the lookout for a separate communication regarding GEYA’s HIGH 5 program for special needs children from Coach Jenn and Coach Matt in the next day or so.

Lastly, please understand the amount of additional volunteer support we will require to launch and run this program effectively. Our Soccer Board is comprised of 12 very dedicated people who have served the community for many years, but we cannot pull this off without new volunteers stepping forward. A shortage of volunteers in and of itself may prove to be a deal breaker, so please consider reaching out to us to join the effort.

Cheers,

Jay Janczak
President, GEYA Soccer..
