The Ellensburg FC tryouts scheduled for May 4th, 5th and 9th have been postponed to a TBD date. The "stay-at-home" order in Washington has been extended to May 4th, so KVJSA will revisit setting a tryout date at our monthly board meeting on May 5th and update you as soon as possible. There will be at least 2 weeks notice before the newly scheduled tryout date. In the meantime, registration is still open! There is no cost for tryouts but registration IS required. Register here.
March 15, 2020
This past week has been unprecedented in most of our lives. KVJSA and EFC respect the decisions taken locally and nationally to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus/COVID-19. As you likely are well-aware by now, the governor has closed k-12 schools through April 24, canceling all organized sport activities. The city of Ellensburg has closed all indoor facilities and cancelled all youth sport activities until further notice. And, PSPL has suspended all league activity until at least 4/1.
Consistent with these actions, KVJSA/EFC will suspend all club-sponsored activities through at least March 31. This includes all recreational and competitive programming. We will follow the advice of PSPL on return to play and provide an update by the end of March on the status of play for April.
Upon return to play, there are several soccer-specific recommendations for preventing virus transmission beyond the general hygiene principles:
- Every player should have an individual ball for drills and all balls should be sanitized after use
- Players should not share jerseys or pinnies without sanitization between uses
- Players should not share water bottles
- Social distancing in teaching moments, sidelines, etc. should be enforced
- Group celebrations, including high fives, hugs, etc. should be avoided
We share the disappointment and frustration of not being able to play and hope to return to play as soon as our governing bodies and public health officials deem it safe and appropriate.
