Update on the 2020 Season

HI Everyone,

Big thanks to those of you who have sent videos and tagged us in your own Insta and Facebook soccer posts!
Keep them coming!
I wanted to give you a quick update on the season.
We’re still planning on having it!
(but on a delay)
Based on the current guidelines, we are unable to do any group activities, including practices, until May 1.
We hope we will be able to get outside and play that first weekend in May.
We do have some substantial updates to the schedule though.
For the U12 & older teams:
We will not be playing in the Saratoga May Day Kick Off tournament May 2-3.
The VSL will not start as planned in May.
With the uncertainty, the VSA is up in the air about what that might look like.
The high likelihood is that our “league play” will be in June & July, and maybe into August.
We are still planning to go to Green Mountain Challenge in Manchester in late June.
For ACSL (U8 & U10 groups):
We are still planning to move forward with our 6-8 week schedule, starting as soon as we can get outside.
Once we know for sure what that looks like, I will be in touch with details.
Pease keep an eye on your email and our AUSC social media channels as we’ve got some fun stuff planned for these outlets.
We’re still looking forward to a great season, and will keep everyone up to date on the schedule as much as possible, and as soon as we have updates.
If, based on the current uncertainty surrounding everything from a schedule perspective, you are no longer interested in Addison United soccer this spring/summer, please get in touch.
One last important note.
We were recently notified by the VSA that a U16 boys player from one of the Chittenden County clubs that was playing futsal has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
He is doing fine, and currently not at risk for serious complications, but is being quarantined in his home. He wanted to pass on to everyone, particularly his peer players, that it is a big deal and anyone can get it or pass it on to others even if they don’t feel sick, so he asks that everyone stay out of public places and stay home.
Stay safe, stay healthy.
We’ll get through this together!
Hope to see you all May 1 or soon thereafter!
