Dear PDA Family,
We are writing to inform you that effective March 12th, 2020 the Players Development Academy is officially cancelling all training sessions, games and participation in tournaments until further notice. After extensive consultation with our coaching leadership, medical experts, and our Board, we believe that this is the most responsible way for our club to proceed. The safety of our employees, coaches, players and families is our highest priority.
Please also be advised that the Elite Clubs National League is immediately suspending all sanctioned league competitions through April 30, 2020, including cancelling the ECNL Girls Phoenix Spring National Event in April, the ECNL Boys South Carolina National Event in April, all ECNL Conference Selection Program Events through this date, and all ECNL SuperCup events through this date. This suspension also includes all ECNL sanctioned conference games, as well as ECNL Regional League competitions.
Additionally, U.S. Soccer Development Academy has immediately suspended all Academy operations, including all regular season matches scheduled through April 30, 2020 and cancelling the 2020 Allstate U.S. Soccer Development Academy Spring Cup for both boys and girls.
We will continue to closely monitor this rapidly evolving situation and will make decisions as to when it is appropriate to resume training.
We strongly recommend that you review the Center for Disease Control’s website for the most up to date information: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html
