Region 114 COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Updates for Fall 2020 Soccer Season

Hello, Region 114 families. At this time, we are in a holding pattern due to COVID-19. Like everyone everywhere, we are awaiting direction from state, city, and AYSO officials. Preparations for the Fall season are under way, but we can't prepare much at this time, since nobody knows what changes will be required and when practices/games may begin.

The City of Long Beach is currently not issuing permits for its fields, and the Long Beach Health Department does not yet permit training/practices for youth contact sports. This means even 1 on 1 training with an instructor, unless a member of your same house, is prohibited.

The City of Long Beach has indicated that decisions regarding youth contact sports will be made by mid-August. As soon as we learn more, we will notify all registered families. Make sure your ayso114.org account has a valid email address and that your account is set to receive correspondence, because as soon as we get a green light, information is going to come fast and furiously!

NOTE: Many of the dates listed on the various pages of this website are in flux. We will do our best to update them, so thank you for being flexible and rolling with the inevitable challenges presented by COVID-19.

As new information is received, it will be posted to this page. Keep checking back.

Please direct questions to Region 114 Commissioner, Ashley Menear.


Updates By Date

6-12-2020

City of Long Beach Parks, Recreation & Marine Department will not issue any athletic/sports field, sports court or beach use permits/agreements until the City's Health Officer health order is revised to allow for team sports, organized sports activities or gatherings on the beaches. Since the current health order does not allow for such activities, there will be no permits issued for said activities or facilities.


6-15-2020

AYSO has updated their Ready Set Play! page to answer many questions and provide resources for safely returning to play.


6-29-2020

Our Summer Camps hosted by First Touch Soccer have begun. There are multiple, weekly camps throughout the Summer months -- there is still time to sign up.

While in-person trainings/practices for youth contact sports have not yet been approved by Long beach City Health Department, our Summer camps are allowed under the city's Day Camp Protocol (Appendix N) thanks to diligent safety and distancing measures instituted by our partners, First Touch Soccer.


7-23-2020

Please note ABC7 ran a news story today which mistakenly implied that AYSO had cancelled the Fall Season. This is not true. AYSO Guidance to all Regions is that return to play is allowed where permitted by local authorities and when done in a manner that complies with local health-related guidance. Specific dates for program re-starts, where that is permissible, will be determined by our local board in collaboration with our Public Health Department.
