Tryouts for the 2021 summer travel season were held August 3 and August 5. We are currently reviewing evaluations and forming teams; roster announcements will be emailed to all families who registered.
If you did not register and did not attend tryouts, but are still interested to see if we have room on a team, please email: Holly De la Rosa for more information.
In light of Governor Walz's return-to-school announcement , MYSA has provided an update on plans for the fall season. MYSA is planning to host a fall season and believe they will be able to do so in a safe environment; like many of us, they are waiting for a MSHSL decision regarding the status of high school sports this fall. MYSA has indicated they are planning for all possibilities and will communicate any changes ASAP.
In conjunction with Minnesota Health Department (MDH) and Minnesota Amateur Sports Commission (MASC) MYSA created a Return to Competition Protocols that all clubs must adhere to starting this fall. Their goal is to create a safe environment for players, coaches, and spectators and to provide clear direction for clubs regarding COVID-19. The plan has been reviewed and endorsed by MDH. Please note, these recommendations do not supersede or replace any applicable local, state, regional or federal health guidelines or requirements, which should be adhered to by all clubs. These guidelines are subject to change based on changes to the trajectory of COVID-19 and clubs should monitor these guidelines consistently and often.
When MYSA was working with MDH to develop the Return to Competition Protocols, MYSA also asked them for guidance on teams traveling out of their "regions". In MDH's Youth Sport Guidelines they state:
“There may be an increased risk of COVID-19 when participating in a game or tournament, and COVID-19 activity may be different in different regions of the state, also contributing to a possible increase in risk. Traveling out of state to participate in sports activities is strongly discouraged. However, if teams are considering traveling to other regions or states for games, they should be aware of COVID-19 activity to inform their decision.”
So teams are able to travel out of state, and we will provide insurance to those teams. MYSA just asks team/s to be extra cautious and plan accordingly.
