Kansas Youth Soccer Return-To-Play Guidelines Memo

Phase 2 Beginning May 22nd, 2020

Kansas Youth Soccer Member Club Directors & Administrators,

On May 19th, 2020 Governor Kelly has made the Executive Order to move Kansas into Phase Two (2) of the Ad Astra Plan starting Friday, May 22nd, 2020.  Governor Kelly has made some adjustments to Phase Two (2) of the plan that directly impact what Kansas Youth Soccer had previously released on May 15, 2020. 

Key Changes to Phase Two (2) Starting May 22nd:

  • Mass gathering of no more than 15 individuals allowed
  • Recreational organized sport facilities and practices will be allowed to beginning on Friday, May 22nd and must adhere to social distancing requirements (6 feet between all participants).
  • Phase 2 will last until Sunday, June 7th, assuming the current trends continue. Phase 3 is expected to begin on Monday, June 8th, with mass gathering of no more than 45 individual prohibited. 

Please find the updated, as of May 19th, 2020, Kansas Youth Soccer Return-To-Play (RTP) Phase Two (2) Guidelines that are attached to this email as we begin to process of returning to the fields safely and effectively.

The purpose behind the RTP Guidelines is dedicated to protecting the health and safety of all participants by providing athletes, parents, coaches and member organizations with information they can use or develop their own specific RTP programs as long as they meet these minimum requirements set forth in the RTP.

All Kansas Youth Soccer members, clubs, & associations are expected to adhere to these timelines and procedures as they are in conjunction with the State of Kansas Ad Astra Plan.  

KSYSA member clubs must adhere to the updated phase 2 directives of the State of Kansas.  Any training not following the state Phase Two (2) restrictions will be considered as non-sanctioned activity by Kansas Youth Soccer. 

We will continue to update the KSYSA Membership as new developments in the Ad Astra Plan and the Return to Play Guidelines (RTP) as they evolve.  Please find on our website a more detailed FAQ Sheet that goes through Phase 2 specifically of the Ad Astra Plan.

I want to thank you again for your help in communication the updated information to your club members. We will make the information available on our social media channels tomorrow Wednesday, May 20, 2020 at 9:30am CT.  We ask that you all share these posts so we get the information to everyone.

Yours in Soccer,

Joe Burger
Executive Director
