Hello De Pere Select Families,
We hope you are safe and well!
Since our suspension of activities, De Pere Select has been following the guidance of US Youth Soccer, Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association (WYSA), East Central District and our government and health experts. Making sure we maintained the health and safety of our families as our highest priority. We remained optimistic about an imminent return to play date (RTP), even as the Safer at Home orders were imposed. We did extensive contingency planning aimed at offering limited or reduced options for play. Unfortunately, as details of the Badger Bounce Back Plan were released, the WYSA obtained advice of medical professionals on the WYSA Return to Play Guidelines and it became apparent that we could not reasonably pursue the June 1st RTP we had all hoped for.
It is with great sadness that we were informed that the SPRING 2020 SOCCER Season has been CANCELLED as of 4/30/2020.
Here is the WYSA RELEASE announcing the cancellation and other important information.
We were disheartened by this devastating news for your players and their families, but the safety and health of our families is always the top priority. We will continue to communicate to you often during the next few months. We will continue to work with our players through virtual training and we look forward to getting together again on the pitch.
