Dear Club Technical Directors, President’s, Coaches, & Administrators:
All of us at the Timbers/Thorns-OYSA Leagues hope that you are all practicing physical distancing and that you and your families are still staying safe during this period.
As we said in our last couple of updates, our main priority is the safety and well-being of our players, coaches, referees, administrators and families. We are continually monitoring the Oregon and Washington State Public Health Authority information, as well as Governor announcements, so we can quickly make informed decisions regarding our return to play guidance.
Yesterday evening OYSA’s governing body, US Youth Soccer, released a programming and advisory memo outlining 4 core priorities for their members and families. It is well written and we are attaching the memo for you to read and send to your players and parents. In the letter they also announce the cancellation of both regional and national championships for 2020. With the continued uncertainty of when our clubs might return to play, together with OYSA we reluctantly decided to cancel the remainder of the PTTL Winter League, PTTL Spring League as well as the Spring Founders, Presidents and State Cups for 2020.
OYSA League President
