COVID 19 UPDATE

April 14, 2020

Dear Spirit of Liverpool USA Players and Families,

 We are writing to update you on the recent developments on the “Return to Play” for the spring season. Our first priority is the health and safety of everyone involved. US Club Soccer and the NEP understands the importance of doing everything we can to help our teams complete this spring season, even if that means playing well into the summer. In conversations with the NEP, we believe we will be able to complete the spring season.   

That being said, we have put some remote training plans together to help our players grow and prepare for the season while still being within the CDC guidelines. 

After speaking with our coaches on a weekly basis, we understand that many, if not all of them, have already started or will be starting remote training on a regular basis. Understand that just like in the school system, there has been a learning curve for our coaches to change the way that they have been coaching in this unprecedented time. This transition period has brought a massive amount of collaboration between coaches to make the best experience for all Spirit of Liverpool players. 

As we get more updates for the season, we will keep you informed. We are constantly planning for the “what ifs” of the season, but still hold out hope that we will be able to get back on the field soon.

Message from US Club:
These past weeks have been a trial to us all, and we're not out of the woods yet. There are certainly encouraging signs, however, not least of which is the willingness of so many people all over the country to accept short-term hardship in service to the greater good. If we all remain resolute and keep up the good fight by behaving responsibly and obeying public health guidelines, we’ll more quickly find ourselves back on the soccer fields and living more normal lives. 

Spirit of Liverpool USA appreciates your patience and understanding as we navigate these unchartered waters. We are committed to providing you with the best possible experience as a player given the circumstance. 

Thank you,

 Spirit of Liverpool USA Administration
