Youth Soccer Update

Like all of you the YMCA has been following the details of COVID-19 and its impact on every aspect of our daily lives.  It was our hope that conditions would improve so that our YMCA Summer Youth Soccer League would be able to take place during the May and June season.  Working under the guidelines of the Reopen Alaska Responsibly plan we have come to the conclusion that our 2020 YMCA Summer Youth Soccer Season cannot operate.  A great part of the program was the gathering of players and families on the fields behind the YMCA.  Even with the anticipated guidelines under a Phase 3 of the reopening, adhering to the group size and social distancing guidelines would have made the league an improbability.

Jim Young, YMCA Sports Director, will begin the process of canceling the league and all families that have registered to date will be contacted in regards to their program fees.  The options for those fees will range from refund, credit or a donation.  We appreciate your support of this program and we look forward to our community recovering from COVID-19 and a great season in 2021, as well as providing future YMCA programs for our community.
