COMMUNITY NEWSLETTER - MAY 1, 2020

 

Community Support Newsletter

Dear Great Basin Youth Soccer League Community,

 

Great Basin Youth Soccer League received communication from US Club, our national organization. US Club is targeting May 18 th  as the date to return decision-making authority to the local leagues. With that said, Great Basin Youth Soccer League continues to follow all COVID-19 protocols from Governor Sisolak, state health officials and US Club Soccer. Our game and training facilities are still closed under the direction of the Governor. The Governor announced an updated Declaration to reopen Nevada on April 29 th . The Governor has extended the "Stay at Home" order to May 15, 2020. 

 

The game and practice fields permitted to GBYSL continue to be closed. Until we receive the official approval to use the fields, please follow the mandates issued to our league of "no organized practices or games" on any field locations. 

In our April 24 th  newsletter, we featured one of our practice fields and asked you to guess the name and location of the field.  The field featured last week was Whites Creek Park located at  2525 Killington Dr . in south Reno off of Mt. Rose Highway. We had over forty-five emails guessing the field. The winner from last week was Allyson Leslie. She won a $25 gift certificate to THE URBAN DELI owned by Coach Lou Rosales. Congratulations Allyson!

 

Many of the participants asked if we could do it again. The field this week is a practice only field.  Can you guess the location and name of the field below ? Send your answer to Vicki LaRovere at  executivedirector@gbysl.org .  The first correct answer submitted will receive a $25 gift certificate to one of the locally owned businesses we have been featuring in our GBYSL newsletter. We will announce the winner in our next newsletter. 

This week we are adding a new competition for our GBYSL players:

 

Soccer Trick Competition for A Chance to Win a $25 Gift Certificate 

 

We are challenging you to send us a video of your best soccer trick! You will have a chance to win a $25 gift certificate. We think this will be a fun way for your children, our GBYSL players, to stay busy while experiencing new soccer skills. Please send us a minute-long video to  gbysl@att.net  by May 7th. The winner will be announced at 2:00 pm on May 8th on our Facebook page and website. We hope you get creative and have fun!

 

Thank you to our soccer family owned businesses. We appreciate your continued support of our community by keeping your business open during this time. Please review our list below as we have added two more businesses. We have included the full list below and hope you will support them. If you would like your business added to our website and newsletter, please send your information to Vicki LaRovere. 

 

Our league is affiliated with US Club Soccer and US Club provides us with guidance and direction while navigating the current soccer and youth sports environment. We have included their website at the end of this newsletter along with some additional resources for your review. Each resource contains information for coaches, parents and players. We hope you find the resources useful.

 

Our soccer family and community continue to be ever present on our minds. Please stay safe and do your part to get us through this time together.

Vacation Races

Coach Dehn Craig's company is called Vacation Races and he puts on 1/2 marathons near National Parks. The race season is just starting but they are canceling races due to the virus. Instead of a Vacation Race they are doing a Staycation Race where you run near home and still get a bib, shirt, and medal - it is called a virtual race. It's just a fun idea so people can stay active and keep training even without a Vacation Race to look forward to. It might be a fun thing for families to do together.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE AS OF 4/3/20

To our GBYSL Soccer Community.

We hope everyone is well and staying safe and healthy.  We promised to keep you informed of any new announcements during this time.

On April 1, Governor Sisolak extended the closure of public and private schools, non-essential business shutdowns and the ban on large gatherings until the end of April.  The Governor’s directive is to “Stay at Home”.  GBYSL has received notification from all of our county and city permit issuing agencies that all soccer game and practice fields are closed until April 30th as of the Governor’s announcement.  GBYSL fields are closed to all organized sports and activities.  Please do not gather in groups at the fields.

Great Basin Youth Soccer League would like to support our community by promoting our soccer family businesses.  If you own a small business that continues to operate under the health department guidelines established, please send us your business name, hours of operation, address and the service you provide to our community.  We will post your information to our website and social media.  We need to support each other during this time.  Please send the information to Vicki LaRovere at executivedirector@gbysl.org.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff of Great Basin Youth Soccer League, we wish all of you good health

Randy Ritter
President

FIELD UPDATES

All fields within the GBYSL field permits have been suspended, per the Nevada Governor's mandate.  Our field agencies;  City of Sparks, City of Reno, Washoe County Parks and Open Space and Carson City Parks and Rec. have closed our fields to all games and practices through April 30th.

We will keep our soccer community informed as we find out new information and details.  

Please continue to take every precaution, and make decisions with public health in mind, as we aim to flatten the curve of this pandemic.  Thank you for your attentiveness to this evolving matter.

GBYSL OFFICE WILL TEMPORARILY CLOSE BEGINNING TUESDAY, MARCH 17

To our Soccer Community:

As we continue to monitor the situation around COVID-19, Great Basin Youth Soccer League’s continued priority is the health and well-being of its employees and soccer families, coaches and volunteers.  On Monday, March 16th, the City of Reno’s Mayor Hillary Schieve ordered all non-essential businesses to close.

Until further notice, our employees will work remotely with access to email.  We will monitor our phone messages when possible.  The preferred method of communication will be email:

Maria Huynh - Recreational program questions:  recreationaladmin@gbysl.org

Audrey Barham - Recreational or general questions:  gbyslrec@gmail.com or gbysl@att.net.

Vicki LaRovere - Competitive or general league questions:  executivedirector@gbysl.org  

We are honoring Mayor Schieve’s orders and limiting in-person contact at this time whenever possible.

We would like to remind all of our soccer community the “Best Practices for Health”:

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed. Everyday preventive actions should be taken:

· Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

· Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

· Stay home when you are sick.

· Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

· Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

· Follow the CDC's recommendations for using a facemask.

CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including Coronavirus.

Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms to help prevent the spread of the disease.

· Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

· If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

Additionally, there are a number of different resources and communications from the CDC regarding the Coronavirus.

Link:   https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

GBYSL’s primary commitment and focus at all times is the health and safety of our Soccer Family.

Great Basin Youth Soccer League is actively monitoring COVID-19 and following the guidelines set by US Soccer Federation, US Club Soccer, World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Washoe County Public Health Department.  

During this past week, GBYSL has advised all players, coaches and parents to

·        Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

·        Avoid handshakes with other players, coaches and referees    during games.

·        Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

·        Stay home when you are sick.

·        Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

·        Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household  cleaning spray or wipe.

After reviewing the updated guidance from our National and State Soccer affiliations, GBYSL has decided to suspend all games until March 29, 2020.  City of Reno, City of Sparks, Washoe County Parks and Recreation, Carson City Parks and GBYSL have not pulled practice field permits.  The decision to continue to regularly schedule team practices is up to the GBYSL affiliated clubs and recreational coaches.  We will continue to monitor the status of the ongoing situation and keep all our members updated as we receive information.

With this pandemic being a fluid situation, we will continue to heed the advice of our National and State organizations and Public Health Department for the remainder of the spring season.  We will keep you informed of future league status closer to our March 29 th  date.  GBYSL Directors and staff will be working over the next few weeks on various contingency plans for the 2020 spring season, including options for rescheduling and/or further postponement of games.  Further details will be communicated to GBYSL participants and clubs as we move forward.

Until the March 29 th  date, we encourage all GBYSL participants to follow the practices outlined by the CDC and WHO.  Be diligent and stay healthy.

Thank you.
