Fall Youth Soccer

While we remain in the Green Phase, we will be proceeding with our Fall Soccer season, with some modifications. We are planning to have regular weekly practices and games, with limited team sizes and fewer teams, to allow time between practices and games, and limit the number of people on the field. We are always welcoming dedicated volunteers to help coach, and this year is no exception! We are hoping to have more coaches/parent volunteers to help make sure kids stay distanced as much as possible, and to help with hygiene and sanitizing of equipment. Clearances are required for anyone assisting with the kids. The success of our league depends on our volunteers!

This recreational league is open to boys and girls ages 4-14. We are planning to start the week of August 24th, and run a 6 week season. Dates are subject to change based on circumstances. The cost for this sport is $65. Registration is open NOW until Friday, August 14th. This is a short registration period, so if you are interested in participating, please sign up ASAP.

Please register here: https://go.teamsnap.com/forms/237541

Participants should have cleats, and it is strongly recommended to bring a practice ball. T-shirts and socks will be provided. Spectators should bring their own chairs/blankets to sit on, with at least 6 feet between households. Two spectators may attend per child at both practices and games. Vulnerable populations should stay home. Participants and spectators should use proper hygiene, including hand-washing and use of hand sanitizer. Game balls will be disinfected between games, with additional disinfecting during games as needed. Players do not huddle together; no hand slaps. Sportsmanship continues in a touchless manner. Anyone testing positive for Covid 19, or showing signs of illness, should stay home.

Edgewood Borough will continue to follow all public health directives from Allegheny County and the Governor's office. We are going to plan our summer recreation offerings as we are reasonably able to do so. Please understand that game-play depends entirely on the guidance offered by the aforementioned agencies. The borough will explore modifying or refunding all or part of the registration fees if an activity's season needs to be cancelled or significantly reduced due to the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic. We will continue to provide any necessary updates leading up to, and throughout the season.
