The Salem Recreation & YMCA releases an update on their Fall Sports Programs.

Due to additional youth sports guidelines recently issued from public officials in the state of Illinois, things may look a bit different in their Fall Sports programs.  They are working to develop programs that keep their families safe, meet state and local guidelines, and help their athletes stay active and develop skills, confidence and friendships.  Both Flag Football and Soccer have been placed in the medium risk category for COVID and can play at Level 2.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They will transition from leagues to clinics that are focused on drills and intra-team scrimmages; 1 clinic practice/week.  Clinics will be led by a volunteer coach or staff member and there will be no more than 9 players per group.

With this information, they will be pushing back their registration deadlines.  Flag Football will be August 21st and youth Soccer deadline is August 25th so that you can have time to process the new information.  After the deadline you will be contacted with a day and time for your schedule.  Parents will have to sign a Youth Sports waiver for child to participate.  Also parents (max 2) will be able to attend the clinic, but will need to practice social distancing each week with others.

Registration for Youth Disc Golf is ongoing deadline is August 21st.

Youth Volleyball Clinic registration is ongoing also and the deadline is September 18th.
