Spring/Summer 2020 Skyline Season Cancelled
June 8, 2020 – After reviewing the Governor’s recent Executive Order and the status of Phase 2 of Virginia’s reopening plan we have come to the conclusion that pursuing a summer season as scheduled for the Skyline Club Soccer League is no longer feasible. We are extremely disappointed by this eventuality and know that others are as well. Executive Order #65 was issued on June 2. While it moves our part of the state into Phase 2 of reopening and relaxes certain restrictions, it maintains the requirement of 10 feet of distance between all participants in recreational athletic activities, including competitions. Realistically, soccer matches cannot be played with such distance between athletes enforced. We know that this phase of reopening will last several weeks at least and the earliest we could move to Phase 3 would be the end of June. Unfortunately, that is too late to play a meaningful season this summer. For the safety and well-being of our participants and the larger community, we understand and support the Governor’s orders. Regretfully, the summer / spring season has been canceled despite our best efforts to complete more of the season.
We are truly sorry that we will not be able to play soccer this season and know this is a frustrating time for everyone. We are grateful for your patience, your understanding, and for your participation in the Skyline League.
At this point, we hope and fully intend to have a fall season. We will monitor the development of the virus along with everyone else and take our guidance from government and health officials. The registration deadline for clubs to submit fall teams has been pushed back to July 15.
Please stay safe and we hope to see you on the soccer pitch again as soon as we are safely able to do so.
