COVID 4.16.20

STATEMENT #5 REGARDING COVID-19

(April 16, 2020 at 9:00 a.m.)

 To all the Lexington FC, LYSA Recreational, TOPSoccer and LYSA Adult Soccer players, families and supporters:

As previously stated in our 4 previous alerts from the past several weeks, the leadership of Lexington FC / LYSA has continued to act promptly and consistently with the recommendations of the CDC, US Youth Soccer, the Kentucky Youth Soccer Association (KYSA) and local officials and, out of an abundance of caution, suspended all in-person activities for an undetermined period of time.  As everyone is well aware, this situation continues to be fluid and changes rapidly on a day-to-day and even minute-to minute basis.  

Because of this ever-changing situation and consistent with changes made by US Youth Soccer and the Kentucky Youth Soccer Association, Lexington FC and LYSA has now decided to extend the period of suspension of all in-person soccer and related activities through and including May 1, 2020.  

We remain hopeful that any suspension of activities will be short-lived and trainings and competitions of some kind during this season will be able to resume in some form or fashion.  For example, KYSA continues to have discussions about what programming they might still be able to offer in a shortened/delayed season and is considering the possibility of trying to still host most their 2020 competitions (e.g. State Open Cup; Soccer Village Cup; President’s Cup) albeit at a later date.  With all that being said, we understand that in certain instances it may be that the possibility of a meaningful Spring season may be difficult, if not impossible, and rest assured that the Lexington FC / LYSA leadership are in ongoing discussions about our next steps. We continue to ask for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time as there are many moving parts and even more unknowns and we are doing our best to process this information, make informed and considerate decisions and communicate those decisions to you when they are decided.   

As always, we will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide you with information and our decisions as soon as they are made.  

Sincerely,

Marty Tucker, Club Director / Board Chair.   E-mail: martinbtucker@gmail.com
