SJSL has been continuously monitoring the Covid-19 pandemic and the reports released from the US Soccer Federation, US Club Soccer, and the various national and state governmental agencies. We are aware as well of the steps already taken by our member clubs, and associated local schools and towns.
As has been previously announced, many of our schools are closed until April 20th, and US Club Soccer has suspended all covered activities until at least April 12, 2020. US Club has specifically suspended all activities by member organizations, including league and tournament play, scrimmages, practices, training and tryouts.
While we remain hopeful that some portion of the spring season may be played, given the current state of the pandemic and the unsure future, SJSL has determined the following at this point:
- All SJSL games originally scheduled for 3/15 and 3/22 and previously suspended, including any scheduled make up games, will not be made up.
- All SJSL matches scheduled for 3/29 thru 4/19 are now postponed, including any scheduled makeup games, and most likely will not be played.
- No game reschedule requests or TBAs will be considered until further notice.
- SJ Cup games will be addressed as we get closer to those dates.
Another review and update will take place over the next couple of weeks with the hope that the pandemic takes a turn for the better over that time period.
We are in uncharted territory here. There is always the possibility that the entire spring season may need to be cancelled. Many factors will be considered in reaching that ultimate decision, as well as any rescheduling alternatives, if that decision becomes reality. Safety will always be the foremost factor. The priority right now is to protect our players and their families.
Please stay safe. We encourage all of our members to stay educated on the precautions and proactive measures published by the CDC, WHO and NJ Department of Health. Thank you for your support and understanding in this challenging time. We will get through this together as a community and as a nation.
