In accordance with guidance from US Youth Soccer and the local state associations within the EDP footprint, EDP is continuing the delay of the start of the EDP League season until at least May 17.
With that date in mind, club leaders, coaches and managers can view a few scheduling options click here, which are being considered based on when it is safe to resume league play. These scheduling options will take into account – and may need to be adjusted – on a state-by-state basis, based on decisions made by state health and safety authorities/local state association guidelines.
“As we have mentioned in previous communications, when league play does resume please rest assured that it – like tournament play – will take place with stringent health and safety standards,” EDP Soccer CEO Steve Shilling said.
“The past few weeks have been difficult for all of us and EDP Soccer understands the hardships caused by this pandemic. However, with the recent federal, state, and local announcements around ‘re-opening’ the country, we are very hopeful for youth soccer’s return in the near future. EDP Soccer appreciates your support, patience and understanding as we all work together to get back on the field—#inittogether.
“Stay home, #bendthecurve and we hope to see you at our next event!”
