    IMPORTANT UPDATE FROM EPYSA!

    Just a reminder for all clubs, coaches, parents & players.....any organized soccer activity (practice, tryouts, etc.) held while we are in a red or yellow phase, are considered NON-SANCTIONED, and therefore, not covered by EPYSA if there is an injury to anyone.

    EPYSA is currently working with the United States Olympic Committee, United States Youth Soccer, United States Soccer Federation, and the Pennsylvania Department of Health to develop SAFE RETURN TO PLAY GUIDELINES.  These will be shared when they are completed and available for publication.

    HEAD HEART HEAT

    The Pennsylvania "Safety in Youth Sports Act" established standards and guidance related to the prevention, preparation, response and recovery of injured youth athletes. Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer Association (EPYSA) has established mandatory procedures for implementing the requirements of this law and requires all member leagues and affiliates to comply with the guidance set forth in this law. As an EPYSA member, York USA has established the HEAD HEART HEAT section as a mechanism for providing our member clubs access to educational materials required by the EPYSA mandate.
