Croton AYSO has been and always will be about community soccer, and now is our time to step up for the families we serve. Things may look a lot different than what we are used to, but the one constant we want to ensure is the outcome – happy, active children, enjoying the beautiful game.
With that, we’d like to remind players and parents that we released COVID-19 Safety Protocols and the onset of the season. Particularly, we’d like to point out that there should be only one masked parent/guardian attending practices and games. We fully appreciate how much fun it is to have family such as grandparents and siblings watch the kids play, but these rules are for everyone’s safety. We cannot stress enough that the health of our community requires safe and proactive actions by all players, parents, and coaches.
We’re thrilled to be back on the field and can’t wait until all our teams are out there. We know that times are uncertain and there will be inevitable disruptions & changes as we adapt to a Covid-19 world. We’re committed to bringing Croton soccer safely back to our kids but we need your help.
Follow the safety guidelines
Be a responsible sports parent
Continue to be patient & flexible
It’s critical that we all follow all the safety guidelines to protect our children, coaches and community. Detailed guidelines were sent out via email to all parents and can be found here.
Please be a responsible sports parent. Read AYSO emails & coach communication and respond when asked. Drop off/pick-up players quickly and reinforce the safety rules. Check the website & Facebook page for updates. Make sure your child comes to practice prepared.
Thank you for being patient & flexible thus far. There are a lot of unknowns and we’re all doing the best we can to safely navigate changing situations. We follow school closings and as in yesterday’s cancellation of PVC-age practices (U11 club, U12, U14), some decisions are made with little notice but with our kids’ safety in mind.
We are a 100% volunteer organization and we need support on & off the field. We’re always looking for coaching help and have several board members retiring this year. Please email email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org for a list of open board positions or if you’re interested in coaching.
Finally, thank you to all the coaches & volunteers who helped get the season going. It literally takes a village and we are very appreciative of ours!
We’re excited for fall soccer to begin this Saturday, 9/26!
Teams have been formed and coaches are in the process of reaching out to all parents. Please be patient as there have been a lot of adjustments given new safety rules, field changes and late player registrations.
If you have not heard from your coach yet and you’ve got a confirmed registration, don’t worry, it’s coming. If you are unsure of your child’s registration status, you can check by logging into your Sports Connect account. On your Dashboard page under your player name’s, you should see a red bar with the registration program (2020/2021 AYSO Core) and the appropriate division (e.g. U14 Girls Born 2008 or 2007). Assuming you see that and if you have already submitted payment or do not have an outstanding balance, your child’s registration is active.
All players should come to practice with cleats, shinguards, water bottle and an appropriately sized soccer ball labeled with their name. Size 3 soccer balls are for U5/U6/U7/U8, size 4 for U10/U12 and size 5 for U14)
As a reminder, all players & parents are to wear face masks and adhere to all social distancing guidelines at all AYSO events. More updates will follow so please monitor the Croton AYSO website and Facebook page.
