Welcome to the US Youth Soccer Maryland State Cup!
Message from MSYSA (Updated 4/30/2020)
MSYSA State and Presidents Cup Participants,
As previously promised, the MSYSA board and staff wanted to provide all of the State and Presidents Cup participants with an update concerning the status of the program for this current year. While we hear conflicting information every day concerning the length of the current social distancing protocols, along with the fact that several states are now in the process of opening part of their businesses, we continue to monitor the situation as to the ability of safely holding the cup competitions. As of now US Youth Soccer has mandated that no soccer activities can be held until at least May 15th with another updated scheduled for the beginning of the month.
While we are still fully committed to try and hold the competitions as a way to get our players back on the field and return to a sense of normalcy, our optimum responsibility is to make sure that a safe and healthy environment can be secured.
We will continue to provide periodic updates concerning the status. We have tentatively set June 1st as the date that we would make a final decision on whether we can proceed or not.
Please feel free to contact Brad Roos if you have any questions concerning this matter. As before, here is to wishing all of our MSYSA family continued health during this unprecedented event.
