2020 Summer Soccer Has Been Canceled; Hope to Hold In-House Program

Alexandria Area Soccer Association Parents,

Thank you for your patience as we have tried to make the most informed decision possible regarding our summer soccer season. Given our current information, we have decided to cancel our summer season for 2020.  Most tournaments have cancelled and the uncertainty around guidance from the Minnesota Department of Health moved our board in this direction.

We will be refunding our season feed minus the uniform costs in the next couple of days. Watch for a credit to the account used to register.   

We will be holding a uniform pick up for those that ordered on Wednesday, May 27th & Thursday, May 28th from 5 pm - 7 pm in the Coldwell Banker Crown Realtors parking lot at 625 Broadway St. We will have drive up stations by alphabet so you will not need to leave your vehicle.

AND … as we await further guidance from MDH on what we might be able to do this summer please continue to pay attention to any communication coming from AASA as we are going to be ready to run an in house program should the opportunity present itself.  We know that kids are hungry to engage in the activities they love -- and that includes soccer. We will communicate information regarding this opportunity as it becomes available.

Feel free to reach out to any of our board members should you have any questions. Please know this was not an easy decision and that we do have our soccer families' safety, health and well being in mind. 

Sincerely,

AASA Board of Directors

COVID-19 UPDATES

Latest Update as of 4/24/20

Alexandria Area Soccer Association

Good afternoon Soccer Families,

We received notification today from the MN Youth Soccer Association that in light of Governor Walz shutting down school buildings, extending e-learning through the end of the school year, and field closures throughout the state, the return-to-play date has been pushed back to June 1.

We are participating in the Black & Blue League and we should receive our 8 game schedule by May 1st. We will communicate the details of those games once they are available.

We have not heard of any changes to tournaments at this time but will share information with you as that becomes available. 

Also, please be aware that along with the school closure it means that all school fields are closed for the remainder of the school year and we do not have access to them. We are optimistic that we will be able to utilize them by June 1st. 

Please continue to check our website and social media for training videos and ideas to keep your soccer players active during this time. We will be adding more content very soon and Kevin Roos has recently added more videos to his You Tube channel. If anyone has some videos they'd like to share with us, please do so!

We want to thank you all for your patience during this time and we will continue to update you as we move closer to hopefully the start of our season!

Stay well,

AASA Board of Directors
