On Friday May 28th, Illinois officially entered into Phase 3 of the reopening plan. Phase 3 allows businesses and activities like youth soccer a pathway to operate in a modified manner (without increased threats of litigation or the cancellation of club insurance) as long as certain general operations and specific individual behavior rules are followed. The general Phase 3 rules that pertain to Youth Sports can be found on the IL DCEO website here. IYSA, the state association that governs IL soccer and provides our club insurance, has further clarified the rules while adding additional procedures for all member clubs. Our staff has attended a number of conference calls, prepared the required club waivers and procedure documents, and is in the process of educating our members on the policies to allow us to restart operations.
While we are disappointed we cannot do more at this time, we continue to push our associations to consider additional common sense procedures that will allow us to return to normal while maintaining a healthy and safe environment for everyone. We appreciate your help in reducing the potential health and liability exposures faced by our players, coaches, staff, and entire club.
There are a number of changes to the traditional IFJ/PCSL summer offerings this year. While some of our programming has been reduced, we are proud to say we are providing a number of camps this summer.
