MYSA Status Update

To our member leagues and clubs,

As everyone is aware by now, we are faced with the unique challenge of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. I wanted to reach out to give an update on the current actions of your governing bodies (USSF, USYS & MYSA).

USSF – Has suspended all operations of the National Teams, Development Academy, Coaching Education, Referee Education and limited all non-essential travel through April 30th.

USYS – Cancellation of the Las Vegas National League events and suspension of all USYS League Conference play through April 15th, the TOPSoccer National Symposium has been postponed and all ODP international trips scheduled for this spring have been delayed. They are currently advising against air travel, especially to affected areas.

MYSA – Has suspended all State level events and competitions through April 15th. This includes Presidents Cup, Cup Qualifying Games & ODP. We will make decisions moving forward on a weekly basis and are in regular contact with USYS and also monitoring advisements from the Missouri Department of Health and Human Services on an ongoing basis.

As for 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 in cooperation with their local Health Authorities. The safety and health of the players should always be first and foremost when making decisions for travel and ongoing operations.

We want to thank everyone involved with youth soccer in the state for their support and cooperation and we will continue to update you via our official information channels as new information presents itself. We remind you to check back with us often as the circumstances are fluid and decisions are being made daily.

Be safe & take care,

C. Nik Bushell

Executive Director
