The Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association and the Madison Area Youth Soccer Association suspended all sanctioned activities through April 30 due to the ongoing public health situation related to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. This includes all WYSA and MAYSA programs and leagues, including the leagues in which Evansville Soccer Club teams play.

We understand that many club members have questions. Unfortunately, we simply don't know all the answers. We want to provide you with the latest details we have, but we also want to be careful to provide only accurate information.

Please be aware that this situation is fluid and frequently changing. That said, here is the information that we know right now:

  • Most likely, the earliest possible date that ESC teams could begin practice is Friday, May 1. This includes In-house and MAYSA/Travel leagues. This date is based on the WYSA/MAYSA suspension of activities, and could change based on future decisions by those organizations and/or the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and other state and local authorities.

  • Important: Please do not allow your children to get together with players from other families to practice/play.

  • The WYSA State League Spring 2020 season has been extended to allow games through July 12 and MAYSA will extend its spring season into "mid-July." (specific date TBA) Another schedule reconciliation period will open soon for teams to reschedule games that are before May 1.

The ESC Board will continue to monitor this situation and communicate any changes accordingly. Thanks for your patience and understanding during these challenging times. We encourage you to heed public health guidelines and wish you and your family the best of health.
