WYSA Summer: Return to Play Update - 23 May 2020

Good morning WYSA Summer Soccer families,
Thank you for your patience as we developed our club Return to Play Protocol & Mitigation Plan. After much discussion, and many work sessions & location walkthroughs, we have developed a color Phase plan, including: Red, Orange, Yellow, & Green.
On Tuesday, we will resume Valley Revolution training with Phase Orange. For those unfamiliar with our club structure, VR is our annual program with players/teams that follow a full annual curriculum and compete in league play & tournaments with other clubs. VR is resuming play with technical training sessions beginning with our oldest age groups and working our way down through the age divisions throughout the week. If VR players & parents are compliant and everything goes according to plan, we hope to move to Phase Yellow.
We would like to begin the WYSA Summer Recreational program in Phase Yellow, and move to Green when we determine that it is safe to do so. As we move through each Return to Play phase, that phase's Mitigation Plan will be updated with instructions per location. Right now, the plan published on our website has detailed information on Phase Orange at Bumpus Soccer Fields specifically. But that will be updated dependent on the results of this week's VR technical training.
We plan to rollout the summer recreational season starting with the older divisions and then working our way to the youngest divisions. We plan to stagger start and end times so that one group can clear the fields before the next group arrives. We have purchased plenty of supplies to provide sanitization stations, and we will have separate entrance & exits to the fields to prevent cross traffic and crowding. We have plenty of space, so we plan to utilize it to allow natural distance between groups and sessions.
When we started creating our Return to Play plan, Alaska was one of the first states in the country to begin this process, however more states are returning to play daily with more data being available for us to continue to move forward. We appreciate your confidence in our board and staff as we navigate this challenging situation. We have created a Covid Return to Play page on our website where you can check regularly for updates: http://www.wasillayouthsoccer.org/covid19RTPprotocol
We look forward to seeing you out on the fields soon! Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

*Preparation for WYSA Summer Soccer 2020*

Hello WYSA Families,

Online registration is closed and rostering is complete. We are currently organizing details for the upcoming 2020 Outdoor Summer Soccer season. We are spending this entire week reviewing and finalizing our Covid-19 Mitigation plan for all Wasilla Youth Soccer - Valley Revolution programming. We appreciate your patience as our staff diligently works on this high priority task and places orders for necessary equipment and required safety items.
We appreciate your support of our club and your trust in our staff as we create the most positive experience possible as we navigate youth sports during a global pandemic.

Here are a few tips so families can prepare their players for the upcoming soccer season:

Uniforms
Jerseys are included in the registration fee. Players will need black shorts and soccer socks (that completely cover the shinguards). Shorts & socks can be found at many local retailers or online at soccer.com . Once the jerseys are distributed, please plan to wash these regularly so players can wear them to all sessions to reduce the need for "pennies" or training vests.

Equipment - Shin Guards, Soccer Balls & Water Bottles
Shinguards are required. They should be worn to every session - trainings & matches. (Shin guards should be rigid, not pads, and completely covered by socks.)
Soccer Balls! Every soccer player must have their own their own ball to bring to each session. Please write name & parent cell/text number on the ball with a sharpie. Please be prepared to clean the ball with sanitizing wipes before & after each session.
Water Bottles - Players should have a water bottle with them at all times to prevent dehydration. Please make sure they are well marked. There will be NO sharing of water, snacks, or drinks this season.
Soccer Cleats - not football cleats, not baseball cleats
When you buy cleats, make sure you are purchasing SOCCER cleats. This is very important for ball control and proper technique for dribbling, passing, shooting. Referees will not allow your child to play in a game if they are wearing football/baseball cleats - they check equipment and cleats prior to each match. Because we no longer have Sports Authority in Alaska, you may need to purchase equipment online. If you need links to websites, feel free to reply to this email.
Credentials - All 2020 players must have proof of birth and signed medical/liability waivers on file at the WYSA office located at the Menard Sports Center. However, we still do not have access to our office due to City of Wasilla closures. Once we are allowed back in, we will provide non-contact credential drop off dates & times.
Social Media - Stay current with club details
Facebook - Like us at Wasilla Youth Soccer - Valley Revolution
Instagram - Follow us @wysa_valleyrevolution

Play Soccer - Players should be working on their footskills, dribbling, passing (with a family member), etc. at home before the season begins...

Watch Soccer - While professional or collegiate soccer leagues begin individual and team training to prepare for sports to resume in the future, there are many great past matches being re-broadcasted on social media. There are also many great highlight clips available online.
