Coach / Manager
As are many of you, EDP has seen and are monitoring reports that High School sports may not go ahead this Fall in different areas.
If High School Sports are not able to take place in the Fall, EDP will offer a league for U16-U19 this upcoming Fall Season. (As in past years, EDP will offer a U15 Fall season no matter what due to some players still being 8th grade)
If High School Sports are cancelled this Fall, EDP will make sure to have a window for all U15-U19 teams to register, so that all teams can be included in brackets and schedules can be created. This will most likely be a quick turn around, so please try to plan ahead so that you are ready to register if needed.
EDP will also be exploring additional Showcase opportunities should there be no High School Sports this Fall.
Coaches, Team Managers and Club Admins (this is a bulk email)
MOSA has put some guidelines together below. Please keep in mind that everyone must follow all NJYS, NJ State, Local (Town), CDC, and club rules. I strongly recommend every coach confirms their games each week (by Wednesday) and in that process communicates with the opposing coach to find out if the home team has any guidelines that they should know about in advance. For instance, some towns might require the club to check temperatures when players/spectators arrive.
Please remember these are friendlies, no scores should be entered on the MOSA website, no trophies will be handed out. These games will not affect flighting for the Fall. No game card is needed. A valid US youth soccer pass is the only thing the referees should check to make sure each player and coach is insured. (for most this will be a NJYS pass)
Coaches, please communicate with your parents and players what is expected. Please help the home clubs control the spectators.
