News on the cancellation of the Spring 2020 season

GLASA Coaches, Players and Families,

As we continue to navigate through these unprecedented times, all of us here at the Greater Lewisville Area Soccer Association hope each of you and your families are staying healthy and safe. We truly miss seeing each of you on the fields.

After careful consideration regarding the safety of our players, families, coaches and staff along with the guidance from the state, county and cities we have made the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of the 2020 Spring Soccer Season.  Per the current state guidelines, the earliest possible Saturday games could have been On May 23rd (Memorial Day Weekend) only if the State of Texas expanded the athletic group size to allow team sports.  Coupled with the season cancellation of our playing partners from surrounding cities, the schedules as they existed would have been unworkable.

If we are allowed access to fields and the allowable groups sizes expand, we hope to facilitate some mini tournaments, camps or skill sessions during the month of June to get people back into soccer activities.  We will send additional information regarding those plans as the opportunities open and are finalized.

GLASA is a non-profit 501c(3) and the majority of expenses regarding the soccer season actually occur and are paid prior to the first game being played.  For this reason, as well as the operational task itself GLASA will not be sending any refunds for the Spring season.  We will however be offering a very aggressive registration price for the fall season as well as an additional $25 discount to any player affected by the spring season cancellation. 

For the fall, when you register, all players will be “Wait Listed” and NO PAYMENTS will be processed until we have certainty of the dates and playing schedule for the Fall season.  We appreciate your understanding in these matters and we hope to see you all back on the pitch in the fall.

Best Regards,

Greater Lewisville Area Soccer Association
