We have continued to monitor directives and information from both government authorities and municipal agencies regarding the escalating COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease) outbreak. With the recent confirmations of cases here on Long Island, and with the health and well-being of all participants; membership, clinicians, exhibitors, guests, League volunteers and staff, we have made the decision to cancel this weekend’s Long Island Junior Soccer League annual convention in its entirety. This includes:
- Hall of Fame, Volunteer Awards Dinner on Friday Evening
- Sportsmanship Presentations
- Coaches Meetings
- College Forum
- LIJSL Academy/PDP Meeting
- Technical Seminars
- AED Course
- 4 v 4 Coaching Education Course
This is the first time that the event has been canceled in its 38 years. Please give us time to respond to some of the questions that this decision will surely initiate regarding specific distribution of award presentations, potential rescheduling of meetings, etc.
Thank you again for your understanding in what was a difficult but proactive, correct decision.
