NJYS Suspension of Sanctioned Activities Extended (April 30, 2020)

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the communication from our local, state and federal government about social 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). A further update will be provided on or about May 17th.

As public officials shift the conversation to opening up our communities, we are actively working with US Youth Soccer to develop Return to Play guidelines. As part of this initiative, we will collaborate with our clubs and leagues to develop this comprehensive list before returning to play. These guidelines will incorporate compliance with safety measures that adhere to the CDC and federal and local governments. We encourage everyone to exercise extreme caution and continue to abide by public health experts' guidelines (e.g. hygiene, physical distancing, facemask use, etc). You can read about those guidelines on this CDC web page.

We will continue to keep our membership updated on the evolving COVID-19 situation. Again, a further advisory from NJ Youth Soccer can be expected on or about May 17th.

US Youth Soccer Suspension Announcement & NJ Youth Soccer Update (April 15, 2020)

Earlier today, US Youth Soccer announced that our national association will push back its Regional and National return-to-activity date to May 15th, 2020. As communicated in that announcement, this pause in play will continue to allow State Associations, including NJ Youth Soccer, to review the impact of COVID-19 on their members and make their own informed decisions on a return-to-play date.

US Youth Soccer's announcement is specific to its own programming (e.g. USYS National League, USYS Mid-Atlantic EDP Conference) and does not alter NJ Youth Soccer's current suspension of all affiliated and sanctioned soccer activities statewide. A further advisory from NJ Youth Soccer can be expected by Thursday, April 30th.

Along with US Youth Soccer, we express our appreciation to medical personnel throughout New Jersey and around the world who are doing everything possible to contain the COVID-19 virus.

Be safe, stay healthy and #BendTheCurve, #StayAtHome

NJYS Suspension of Sanctioned Activities Extended (March 31, 2020)

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the communication from our local, state and federal government about social 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). As a result of this suspension, in-person team and club activities during this time will not be sanctioned and, therefore, will not be covered by NJ Youth Soccer insurances. For the State Office, this suspension includes our in-person programming (e.g., ODP, State Cups and Coaching Education Courses).

NJ Youth Soccer is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation, in particularly the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as state regulations and federal guidelines. We also remain in close contact with US Soccer, US Youth Soccer and other State Associations.

We will continue to keep our membership updated on the evolving COVID-19 situation accordingly, and a further advisory from NJ Youth Soccer can be expected by Thursday, April 30th.

NJYS Sanctioned Activities Suspended (Posted on March 16, 2020)

Effective Monday, March 16th, 2020, NJ Youth Soccer is suspending all affiliated and sanctioned soccer activities statewide due to the evolving COVID-19 situation. For our member organizations (towns, clubs and leagues) this suspension includes, but is not limited to, all practices, training, scrimmages, clinics, tryouts, games and tournaments. As a result of this suspension, team and club activities during this time will not be sanctioned and, therefore, will not be covered by NJ Youth Soccer insurances. For the State Office, this suspension includes our programming (e.g., ODP, State Cups and Coaching Education Courses).

Our primary focus is the safety and welfare of our players, coaches and referees. More importantly, we are concerned for the safety and well-being of our communities and seek to comply with medical directives on how to stem the spread of the virus. This is not just a soccer decision, but a public health decision.

We continue to closely monitor the situation via the federal, state and local health agencies. We remain in contact with US Soccer, US Youth Soccer and other State Associations, who have made significant cancellations and postponements as well as the other major sport organizations and events throughout the country. Membership can expect regular updates as this situation continues to evolve.

We cannot emphasize enough that NJ Youth Soccer's primary commitment is the health and safety of all members, players, coaches, referees, parents, spectators and volunteers.

A further update from NJ Youth Soccer will be provided by April 1st.
