Next Board Meeting

We need to fill the following positions!
Field Director, Grounds Crew Coordinator, Registrar, Referees & Coaches
If you are interested in any of these positions, please reach out to David Munson, Maggie Dake or Dave Dake (email addresses are listed on the Contact page).
We need to recruit and train referees for our 2021 summer season! There is currently a state-wide shortage of approximately 1600 referees. Many of this season’s matches will only have 1-2 referees available and many games could be canceled. Referees are paid for each game! NUUSC will reimburse all costs for individuals who become certified referees once you have officiated a minimum of 5 games. This would be a great summer job for anyone ages 13 and up!
Who: Rec Coaches (but all coaches are welcome)
What: Free MYSA Coaches Training
When: April 24, 3-5 PM
Where: MLC Soccer Fields (backup: Vogel)

Return to Competition Protocols
In conjunction with Minnesota Health Department (MDH) and Minnesota Amateur Sports Commission (MASC) we created a Return to Competition Protocols that all clubs must adhere to starting fall 2020. Our 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 we were working with MDH to develop the Return to Competition Protocols, we 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 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, and we will provide insurance to those teams. We just ask your team/s to be extra cautious and plan accordingly.
