We are excited to announce that we now able to return-to-play! Based on the guidance provided by Governor Reeves, Mayor Barker and the national and state soccer associations we are affiliated with, Tatum Park has reopened and we can resume some soccer activities.
For all programs within HYSA/HFC, training and practices can begin May 20th . We are not allowed to resume games, travel out of state or scrimmage, and there are guidelines we must follow in order to resume training.
Below is the Stage 1 Protocols provided by Mississippi Soccer Association, along with a summary we have put together highlighting these guidelines. Please take the time to review these by clicking on HYSA/HFC Return to Play Guidelines below and discuss these with your kids. It is very important that we follow these guidelines, as the failure to follow these guidelines could result in all soccer activities being shut down.
Also, we need all parents/guardians to go to this link:
to electronically sign the Release Waiver if your child is planning on coming back to play. This signed waiver is required to be completed before we can allow any child to resume practice or training. We have also made this online form available on our website, hysams.org, under the tab COVID-19 Waiver.
For Recreational teams, we are not allowed to resume games at this time. However, we are able to offer field space and times for any teams that desire to practice. If any rec teams would like to practice, the coaches can contact Jenny Puckett at firstname.lastname@example.org to request practice times and field space.
For Academy and Select teams, your coach and manager will be in touch with you regarding practice times and field assignments. Please understand that whether or not your child returns to practice or train is YOUR CHOICE and completely voluntarily. Under this landscape of COVID-19, we understand that there may be families who are not yet ready to return to this level of socialization at this time. All practices and training sessions are OPTIONAL and do not feel any pressure to attend if you are uncomfortable. Please reach out to your coach or manager to let them know if you will be attending.
We have had questions about Rec soccer for the Fall 2020-2021 season. Our plan is to have a Fall season, and we anticipate having our registration form on line June 1st.
Thank you for your patience with us through this process, and we are excited to be able to return to play!
