FC Dallas-Emerald Coast Families,
We hope you are staying safe and healthy during this uncertain time. Our priority remains the health and safety of all players, coaches, families, game officials and event staff.
FC Dallas-Emerald Coast is extending the suspension of the spring season through April 12, 2020 per directive from US Club Soccer. The suspension of activities will continue to include all FCDEC games and practices, STARS games and practices and YDP.
Based on U.S. Adult Soccer Association announcement last week, all FCDEC Spring Adult League games are currently under suspension until April 30. Registration is still OPEN and we anticipate starting league play in early May.
FCDEC is continually monitoring the situation and will rely on US Club Soccer, FYSA and expert public health advice for when it is safe to resume soccer activities. There will be a subsequent Board of Director meeting by April 6 addressing the possibility of returning to play or further adjust the spring season dates. We anticipate getting our athletes back on the field this spring and do not foresee issuing refunds at this time.
Our home tournament, Emerald Coast Cup, is scheduled for May 2-3 and we are still on track to host our annual spring event.
Be on the lookout for activities from your coach or posted on our social media platforms. In the mean time, US Club Soccer invites you to take advantage of various digital and social media resources. They hosted two Facebook Live sessions – with Positive Coaching Alliance on "Dealing with Disappointment" and with SportSessionPlanner on "Getting Organized in the Downtime" – and there are several more scheduled over the next few weeks. Additionally, here's a complimentary 4-week college recruiting plan for players, courtesy of ScoutingZone.
FCDEC encourages your player to work individually on their skills at home and maintain a level of fitness. As needed during this time, please continue to practice social distancing and other recommended procedures. We anticipate getting everyone back on the playing field this spring and hope to be able to do that in a timely and safe manner.
