Soccer association hopes to play in the summer

The Estevan Youth Soccer Association has announced a delay to the start of its season, but they still hope to have a season.

In a post on its Facebook page, the association said there wouldn’t be a spring soccer season this year. They typically begin play in late April and continue until mid-to-late June.

The board is currently looking into options for a shortened season for August or September, based on Return to Play protocols from Soccer Canada and the Sask. Soccer Association, as well as the Government of Saskatchewan's re-opening plan.

Estevan Youth Soccer said they would provide another update by the middle of July as to the progress of the potential seasons if they do not have good news prior to then.

The board says it appreciates the public’s patience and understanding as they continue to work towards a safe season for all players, coaches and volunteers.
