CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE - APRIL 30

This message is for all members and families within the USA organization. Please share with all other USA members. 

Our decisions and response to this situation have been common sense steps to limit the risk of transmission. We will continue to assess and re-evaluate our decisions, as we gather more information. We will provide more direction, as it becomes available, or May 15, whichever comes earlier.

As our USA soccer family members, we want you to be included and informed, as new information becomes available to the Club leadership.

Hopefully, you're adjusting to social distancing and the recent changes in our daily lives. We care and are here for you. We understand this may be a difficult time for families, parents, players, and coaches. Please remember, we are all in this together.

Until the Governor, UYSA, and health care provider’s give us permission to play or practice team sports, we are asking each and every one of you to please be patient with UYSA and us as an organization.  We will let you know when it’s appropriate and prudent to resume training. We ALL want to be on the pitch.

Based on the Governor's and UYSA recommendations, we are NOT able to play games or begin training.  The letter from UYSA, sent directly to you on Monday, April 27, stated;

  1. .  .  . we are unable to offer UYSA League soccer games in May. This applies to all UYSA Leagues.
  2. As a reminder, this suspension of soccer activity doesn’t just include league games, but also includes all activity inconsistent with Utah’s Stay At Home Directive which includes close-contact and team sports activities. https://coronavirus-download.utah.gov/Governor/Stay%20Safe%20Stay%20Home.20.04.17.pdf
  3. The Governor's Stay At Home Directive, Section 6.c, referenced above, specifically states, Do NOT engage in close-contact or team sports.
  4. Additionally, the Phased guidelines addendum to Utah Leads Together 2.0 (https://coronavirus-download.utah.gov/Health/Phased%20Health%20Guidelines%20V3.pdf) states, "Exhibit caution when engaging in close-contact or team sports' is in the Yellow phase.  On May 1st we are moving from the Red phase to the Orange phase.

During the next few weeks, we will continue to provide distance learning and specialized training through Zoom (and other video training), our Daily Challenges, weekly skills and conditioning, tactical analysis, and video meetings, until we can do something different.

We are preparing to take the next small step forward. We have been working on plans to phase in small, then medium, and finally large groups for training and games. To this end, last weekend, a group of individuals, working in small teams, started the United Soccer Center dome disassembly.

Please help to spread an educated message.

-USA Staff Coaches and Executive Board of Directors

We are assessing, evaluating, and sharing  these decision, as soon as the information is available. Thank you for your patience and support.

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE - MARCH 23

This message is for all members and families within the USA organization. Please share with all other USA members. 

Please share this message with ALL members of the USA family and organization.

Hopefully, you’re all adjusting well to social distancing recommendations and the recent changes in our daily schedules.

As events unfold locally, nationally, and internationally, with the spread of COVID-19, the status of Utah Soccer Alliance events, games, and training sessions has not changed. Our decision and response to the situation have been common sense steps to limit the threat of transmission. We will assess and re-evaluate our decisions, as we gather more information. We will provide more direction on or before April 20.

Games, team training sessions, and Club events are suspended indefinitely. We are waiting for information from Federal and State leaders when these activities are prudent and safe to resume. Currently, Bluffdale Park, West Jordan Complex and the local schools have closed their fields to our use, through April 30. The field closures may extend, until safety concerns with large group gatherings have been eliminated.

UYSA has continued monitoring this situation, and they are developing contingency plans for resuming Spring soccer activities. As a member organization, we are in daily contact with UYSA about these future plans.

Given the first death from this outbreak in Utah, it’s important for all USA members to take critical steps and help stop the spread of this virus. We continue to encourage all members to proactively employ the following prevention methods, recommended by the CDC:

  1. Keep your hands clean. Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for 15 seconds. If soap and water aren’t available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

  2. Avoid physical contact with people who are sick.

  3. Avoid ALL non-essential travel.

  4. Avoid gatherings larger than 10 people or more.

  5. Avoid touching your face (eyes, nose, mouth) with unwashed hands.

  6. Avoid touching high-touch surfaces in public spaces.

  7. Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that are frequently touched in your home and place of work.

 Please help to spread an educated message.

 Also, players should continue with the Daily Challenges, weekly conditioning, and weekly skills work during these difficult times. These are being sent via email, through TeamSnap. Please read them.

-USA Executive Board of Directors

We will assess and re-evaluate this decision as we gather more information. Thank you for your patience and support.
