To our MSC Family,
Murfreesboro Soccer Club's leadership has been monitoring this serious issue, and had an emergency follow-up meeting today. In line with state mandates, we are temporarily suspending ALL soccer activities immediately through March 22nd, 2020. This is due to the COVID-19 pandemic; we are acting in good faith and in the best interest of our families and community.
Please note that this a state-mandated dead period that involves every TSSA activity in the state; every MSC activity, including recreational soccer, adult soccer, select soccer, TOPSoccer and all practices and sessions will not be held during this time.
In the interim, we are working hard to adjust schedules to maximize activities and experiences for our members. During that time, we respectfully request everyone looks to practice safe measures designed to eliminate the spread of COVID-19.
Please read the directive below from Tennessee State Soccer Association that went out this afternoon.
As the situation regarding COVID-19 increases, Tennessee Soccer and our Board of Directors have been monitoring with help from the Center For Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), United States Youth Soccer Association (USYS) and United States Soccer Federation (USSF). Our organization is concerned about the health and safety of our members, as well as those in our community, as we make decisions about upcoming spring soccer activity.
On March 12th, US Youth Soccer suspended all National League and Conference play matches that required significant car travel and/or air travel.
On March 12th, United States Soccer Federation suspended all play within their programs through April 30th.
TSSA and our Board of Directors have met to discuss the situation as it continues to develop. At this time we will be suspending all play (TSL, Tournaments, Practice, Games) in Tennessee associated with TSSA through March 22nd. Our staff will continue to be available to you during this time. TSSA and our staff will continue to evaluate the situation on a regular basis and keep you informed.
The key is to do what we can to prevent the spread of this virus. As an individual, take basic precautions such as washing your hands frequently. We will keep you updated and post all updates on social media and our website as the environment changes.
