COVID-19 Response

On Wednesday 5/20, Governor Walz held a press conference and provided additional details for the Stay Safe Plan that includes gradual expansion for organized youth sports and training activities. With this permitted expansion, we are officially entering Phase 2 of our Return-to-Play Plan effective June 1, 2020. That said, TCSL has made the difficult decision to cancel all Summer 2020 leagues and events. More information about this decision, the implications and future progressions through our Return-to-Play Plan may be viewed at the link below.

While a League will not happen this summer, TCSL remains committed to supporting clubs in their return to play and as a larger voice representing clubs within the Twin Cities.

Questions for TCSL

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

Q: Why delay the initial release of the Summer schedule?
A: One benefit of the relatively early schedule release (initially set for Tuesday, March 17) is that we do have significant time before kickoff. As the situation seems to be evolving by the hour, we are going to postpone the release of the Summer schedule in an effort to avoid “re-work” as far as rescheduling goes.

Q: When will the schedule be released?
A: We will communicate to all members on Monday, March 23. At that time, we will either release the schedule or potentially delay further dependent on the situation at that time.

Q: Dependent on guidance from the appropriate authorities, is a “modified” season a possibility?
A: At this moment, we are planning on a season start in early May. Of course, this may evolve. TCSL will remain nimble and evaluate all possibilities related to the Summer season and be transparent with the decision making.
