2020 Season Status
Regrettably, it appears that WFLYSL's 2020 Summer season will not be held. I am very sad to make this announcement; I had hoped that we'd be able to pull it off. But as I watched all of the leagues around us cancel, I pretty much knew we'd have the same result.

The principal reasons for this, all of which begin with the COVID-19 situation, are:

  • Can we assure parents that their children will be safe during practice and play?
  • Would parents agree to games without fans, if required?
  • Can a game of soccer reasonably be held with social distancing rules in place?
  • With players idle for so long during the shutdown, is there increased risk of injury if we try to jam in a compressed season?
  • Many clubs in our league are at the mercy of townships and school districts for playing fields, and many of them feel access would be denied or restricted.

There is talk of trying to hold a U11 and U13 fall season. U15 and U18, of course, would be busy (we hope) with their school teams. This is predicated on continued progress through phases 2 thru 4 of the re-opening. Further announcements will be forthcoming as we learn more.

As a club, we are interested in whatever activities we can think of to get the kids playing again ASAP, even if it means small-sided games, or whatever. Currently Phase 4 allows recreation (under what terms, I don't know), and that hopefully begins June 26.

Summer News
Our league's club coordinators met Sunday night to discuss the outlook of playing this summer. Decision will be made on June 1. See front page of for details.

Also, the following announcement from NYSWYSA coincides with that timing:

New York State West Youth Soccer Association (NYSWYSA) has decided to push out our resumption of programs date to June 1, 2020. This applies to any NYSWYSA-operated programs, excluding the Thruway League. Our member clubs and leagues should continue to make decisions for their own programming according to what they deem is best. NYSWYSA’s only recommendation is that they, along with us, should make sure that they continue to meet any restrictions and/or deadlines that are mandated by New York State and the Federal Government.
