Spring Season Cancellation
Dear NYS families,

It is with heavy hearts that we must announce the cancellation of our Spring Season. South Central District (SCD), which is our district within CJSA, has announced the cancellation of all soccer activities. They were actually one of the last districts to cancel as they were really holding out for a season.

In the coming days all player registrations will automatically be cancelled, and refunds will be given to the original method of payment. As we have already paid a fee for each player registered, we will be giving refunds minus a $5 processing fee per player to cover the fee we were charged. Please allow about 4-7 days for credits to hit credit cards once processed per your bank/ credit card companies’ policies, and 14 days for a check to be mailed if you originally paid us via cash or check. Refunds will be processed as quickly as possible but please remember that we are a volunteer run organization and our board members processing refunds also have children being homeschooled while trying to balance working from home.

SCD has stated that once social gathering limitations have been lifted, there is a possibility of soccer during the summer months. Please remember that this is not a guarantee that there will be soccer, but we want to make sure everyone keeps it in the back of their minds just in case. If a summer session is approved, then we will open registration again and move very quickly with it. We will make sure to do everything we can to get the kids on the field as we miss soccer as much as they do. More information will be provided when additional guidance is received from Governor Lamont and SCD/CJSA/USYS regarding the restart of activities.

Our board meetings have now gone virtual. We are conducting our meetings on Zoom. If you would like to “attend” one of our meetings please email Jolee Dinho-Guerreiro at to be added.

Please be on the lookout for more communication from us in regard to the Summer as well as Fall registration. Make sure to follow us on Facebook and check our webpage for any updates. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at

CJSA has provided a number of online resources on the "Staying Engaged at Home During COVID-19" page of their website. We encourage you to take a look in order to keep your child active.

Please stay safe, keep practicing soccer while social distancing and be #NaugyStrong.
