HYR Spring 2020 Soccer Season Postponed due to Coronavirus Concerns

HYR has always been a safe haven for kids and families for a variety of reasons.  We have been watching the local, state, and national news for the past few days about other event cancellations.  And finally this afternoon, we got official word from JCPS to suspend all after-school on-campus activities until further notice.  (For the record, I do not have any official announcement about JCPS classes, but I am sure they will keep us informed separately soon.)   It makes a whole lot of us sad to think of missing out on our fun HYR practices and glorious Saturdays on Atherton's beautiful campus, but public safety, of course comes first. 

This brings up a host of questions that we do not yet know the answer to, so please give us a little time to get answers together in this fast-paced and rapidly changing situation.  Here are my first thoughts:

Depending on how long the crisis lasts, we may be postponed for a few weeks or canceled altogether for this spring. 

If we postpone or cancel, this may also postpone or cancel T-Ball and Baseball. 

Depending on how the next few weeks turn out, we will develop a policy on how to deal with refunds for this season or crediting future seasons. 
A whole bunch of HYR team shirts should be delivered tomorrow, and the next time we play soccer, we will use the team names and shirts from this spring.   

HYR will send regular league updates to all those registered to keep you informed of the progress.  

I officially touched my face 37 times while composing this message.  

Best to you all as you spend more quality time at home with family.  Remember to sing a song while you wash your hands, give others a hula hoop of personal space, be kind to others, and unrelated to the coronavirus, floss.
