HFC would like to share the following 3/19 update from US Club Soccer:
US Club Soccer is joining with other youth members of the U.S. Soccer Federation (AYSO, SAY and USSSA) in immediately suspending all activities within our jurisdiction through April 12.
To be clear: this includes not only activities directly operated by US Club Soccer, but also those US Club Soccer-sanctioned and related activities operated by member organizations, such as league and tournament play, scrimmages, practices/training, tryouts, team travel, large group meetings and related off-field activities. AYSO, SAY and USSSA are also taking the same measures.
US Club Soccer is continually monitoring the situation and will rely on expert public health advice for when it is safe to resume soccer activities. There will be a subsequent Member Update addressing the possibility of returning to play or extending this soccer cessation before April 12.
HFC will also be following these guidelines, and unless you hear differently from us, we will also extend the suspension of HFC activities until April 12.
HFC United is the first Minnesota club to become a member of USSSA Soccer. Starting this spring, HFC United's recreational soccer players and teams will be registered with USSSA Soccer- a national member of US Soccer. So what is USSSA? USSSA originally stood for United States Slowpitch Softball Association. In 1998, USSSA rebranded as United States Specialty Sports Association, and now serves as a multisport organization with over 4,000,000 members in sports; soccer, baseball, softball, basketball, volleyball, golf, martial arts and seven other sanctioned sports. USSSA has been a member of U.S. Soccer since 2001 and works with leagues, tournaments, clubs, teams in over 45 states. Just recently, USSSA Soccer was elected by US Soccer to sanction a nationwide developmental players league.. To learn more about USSSA, visit; www.usssasoccer.com.
