Dear Parents/Guardians and Players Good news! Today (2/4/21), the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) issued an amended Emergency Order under MCL 333.2253 – Gatherings and Face Mask Order. Thus, this communication serves as notice that all MSYSA affiliated clubs and leagues will move to MSYSA Phase 5.5 on Monday, February 8, 2021, as outlined in our return-to-play guidelines.
In short, organized contact sports, including soccer, may resume in Michigan on Monday, February 8, 2021, provided all participants wear facial coverings during practices and competitions. All participants must maintain 6 feet of social distance from each other when not engaged in play. Gatherings of non-participants for the purpose of observing sports practice and competition must be held consistent with section 3 of the Order.
