The Skokie AYSO board has taken the decision to run a modified Fall 2020 soccer program, with substantial changes to increase the safety of our children.  The following modifications will be implemented:

1.    Our update Return to Play protocol is here: 
https://www.ayso568.org/Default.aspx?tabid=954917. This protocol will be strictly enforced (e.g. mask mandate).

2.    We will offer socially distanced skills practices and short scrimmages (scrimmages limited to 15 minutes MAX).  Masks will be required during the skills practices, which will be designed to reduce strenuous activity.  Masks will be strongly recommended during scrimmages. Only intra-team activities and scrimmages.

3.    These activities will be offered on Sundays, with Wednesdays as an alternate, at one park (to be determined).  

4.   We are combining age groups in the following way:
8U/10U Girls 11:00 AM
12U/14U/19U Girls 12:30 PM
5U/6U/8U Boys 2:00 PM
10U Boys 3:30 PM
12U/14U Boys 5:00 PM
Please bear in mind that the majority of the activities are socially distanced skills practices where players are six feet apart from each other.

5.    We hope to start on September 13th, however we have a lot of prep work so that is a soft target date.  We'll keep you informed if that changes.  We hope to offer eight weeks, however again that is a soft target.

6.    We need volunteers.  Every team (one per division is our current target) must have at least one, preferably two volunteer coaches and one volunteer field monitor.  You can register as a volunteer now, at our website, by logging in and following the Volunteer tab.  We will provide full training, which will mostly be on line but some training in-person may be required, and will be small groups and appropriately planned for masks and social distancing.  We will not field divisions that do not have adequate volunteers by August 31, 2020.

7.    All Fall registration will be closed on August 31, 2020 and no more players can be added after that date.

8.    No refunds after August 15, 2020

Everyone has difficult choices to make because of coronavirus.  The board struggled (and still struggles) with our decision to offer some sort of safer youth sports play options.  Our approach goes well above all state and local guidelines.  Nothing right now is 100% safe, but we hope to offer the safest youth sports program possible.  Please consider whether you feel comfortable with our plan before you register.
