BUCKHANNON – The Upshur County Youth Soccer Association has made the decision to cancel the 2020 spring season after having their monthly board meeting this past Friday.
The season had been delayed several times, but the decision was made to cancel it after the region is still being quarantined because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We appreciate everyone’s patience as we have worked to sort out the situation with US Youth Soccer,” remarked UCYS president Kevin Nicholson. “As of Friday morning, US Youth Soccer has set a return to play date of May 15 nationally. As a board we met and considered all options. After considering the safety and well-being of our players we have decided to cancel the spring season for youth soccer in Upshur County. We did not take this decision lightly but given our current circumstances and uncertain future we feel this is the best course of action for the safety of our players.
“We will transfer all registrations from the spring season to the fall season automatically. If you were a new player for spring 2020 there is no fee difference for the fall season. If you were a returning player in the spring of 2020 there will be a $30 difference that we will collect before the fall season. If you do not wish to transfer your registration to fall 2020 season you will need to contact us before May 31 2020 at [email protected]
“Thank you all for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you all in the fall!”
