Subject: 2020 USYS Leagues Program and Conference activities SUSPENDED through April 15, 2020

USYS will be evaluating conditions on a bi-weekly basis to determine when it’s appropriate to reinstate USYS activities.
ALL US Youth Soccer Conferences are impacted including:

- Mid South Conference, including Gulf Coast Division
- Midwest Conference

This decision has been made in accordance with the guidance of public health and medical professionals as well as the ongoing acceleration of the coronavirus in communities from which our soccer families reside. As the number of State emergencies increases, we have decided to exercise caution in the interest of our soccer family. As for State, local league or member play, practices, etc. these should be made on a case-by-case basis. Organizers should evaluate the local conditions to determine appropriate action steps.
We’d like to thank our USYS Family for your ongoing support of USYS as we manage our programming given the current health and travel environment. The safety and security of our soccer community is, and always will be, our highest priority!
Please note, all policies regarding USYS activities are subject to change based on the ongoing review of circumstances. Further details regarding the impact of coronavirus on USYS programming will continue to be shared via official USYS communications channels.
