Below is the EPYSA COVID-19 announcement. FC Dallastown will continue to follow the guidance provided by EPYSA and CPYSL. At this time the season is postponed through April 5th. Based on the actions of our school system and the local government we expect this date to be extended. If the season were to be cancelled FCD will provide a full refund for the spring season. We hope all of our soccer family are staying safe and healthy.
Please continue to check our website and FaceBook page for updates.
We hope that you are all safe and healthy during this unprecedented time. As stated previously, we are in constant review of the coronavirus situation via County, State and Federal agencies. The following statement reflects developments over the past 48 hours:
Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer is suspending all sanctioned soccer activity through Sunday April 5. We will re-evaluate at that time.
Suspended sanctioned soccer extends to all leagues and clubs. This includes, but is not limited to:
· Organized kick arounds or fitness activities
· Games or scrimmages
· Referee and coaching courses
· State Cups
As per the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, all schools are closed for a two week period. No school facility can be used for any sanctioned activity. Please comply with the directives of our health agencies and professionals. Do not put yourselves or the children at risk to play soccer. This is not a time to be concerned about soccer, this is a public health crisis.
The state association office is Montgomery County and in compliance with the Governor’s directive, will be closed for the next two weeks. Staff is working from home and will respond via email. The website and social media outlets will be updated regularly. However, we will not have any further answers to questions about the re-start of the season or other programs until after April 5th after we evaluate.
To paraphrase a recent statement by Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp Soccer always seems the most important of the least important things. Today, soccer and soccer matches really aren’t important at all.
Please continue with the recommended hygiene and social distancing directives. It’s our sincerest wish that we may return to our regular activities soon.
