Fall 2020 Season Canceled

Dear ISC Families, 

As we mentioned in our opening registration letter, we have been evaluating the impact of the pandemic on our ability to hold soccer games this coming fall. As a board we have reviewed the infection statistics as counties have been reopening, the PYSA draft pandemic guidelines, and Governor Brown’s recommendations for reopening phases. We have also learned that Mount Tabor Soccer Club and Laurelhurst Soccer Club have both canceled their seasons. After reviewing all available information our non-profit board has voted and made the difficult decision to cancel the fall soccer season.

This is not the outcome we had hoped for. Our volunteer board works tirelessly to spread the love of soccer and expand opportunities to play to as many children as possible. However, our first obligation has and will always be to ensure the health and safety of all members of our club. Given the limits on our resources we felt this was the correct decision for our community.

On a personal note, this has been the toughest decision in my three years leading the club. I have played and coached for most of my life and struggle to imagine a fall without soccer games. In the last year our club had turned a corner and begun growing at a time when recreational soccer participation had been on the decline. We hope that the disruption of the pandemic will be temporary, and we will use this brief pause to work on ways to spread soccer as widely as possible. We will seek ways to reduce barriers and expand opportunities to underrepresented neighbors. If you would like to join in this effort, please write to me at [email protected]

Refunds for fall registration fees will be processed in full back to the cards that were used during registration.



Thank you,



Rich Roberson
President, Irvington Soccer Club
