Spring 2020 Season Update

Posted by Jayne Serna at Apr 18, 2020 10:28AM PDT ( 0 Comments )

Due to continued Novel Corona Virus/COVID-19 concerns, it seems most prudent to cancel the rest of the season for all age groups and divisions in Leander Youth Soccer. We hope to announce community soccer opportunities and will announce select tryouts once the health restrictions are lifted. Online registration should be available in early May for Fall 2020. Until then, continue to stay home and stay safe. Best wishes to you all and hope to see you on the pitch as soon as it is reasonably possible!

For possible refunds, please email using the subject: 2020 Refund Request. If you wish to decline the refund, simply take no action. Leander Youth Soccer greatly appreciates the donations to recover unreimbursed costs, keep fees lower, and replace aging equipment. Refunds will only be granted after an email request received on or before June 1.

Adult league for Summer?

Posted by Jayne Serna at Mar 29, 2020 10:44AM PDT ( 0 Comments )

As we plan ahead for the summer, we are hoping to start an adult league, once we have the all-clear to use the fields and gather in groups. Would you complete the survey (if interested) and share it with anyone else in the community that you think would be interested? Thanks to Florenc Ceka for his efforts on this!!

Thanks for your patience, and stay safe and socially distant!



Urgent—please read and share:

1.) CAYSA—Has canceled all games from now until April 5th. Please contact your opponents to arrange reschedules when you have a chance. But feel free to wait!:…/
2.) City of Leander—Please check the city site for updates on local closures and advice:…/coronavirus-disease-2019-covid-…
3.) WDDOA—Will post a decision about league play by 4pm tonight.

So, in anticipation of all of these things, we will cancel league play and practices at Bledsoe until further notice. I anticipate that we will begin again the weekend of April 4th, but will update you as information becomes available.
