Good Morning BSSL Families,
We wanted to send you an update and proposed plan for the "summer"/fall soccer season. We have been in contact with IYSA, Roscoe Township, IDPH, CDC and following the Governor's Phase plans.
The Roscoe Township has decided to open Cross and Kelley Meyer Parks...see their important notice below
IMPORTANT NOTICE Effective May 29, 2020, the State of Illinois will move into Phase 3 of the Restore Illinois plan. As a result of this, we will be opening our parks for your use and enjoyment. In light of the current guidance issued by the State of Illinois and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, you are entering at your own risk. Please continue to practice social distancing while enjoying our parks and facilities within the park that may be open to public access. For questions and additional information regarding Phase 3 of the Restore Illinois Plan, please visit: https://coronavirus.illinois.gov/s/restore-illinoisphase-3/. Thank you.”
BSSL proposed "summer/fall season" (This is all dependent upon the State moving forward with the Restore Illinois Phase plan).
Here is what the proposed season would look like-
Registration will close on Wednesday June 24th, we will conduct a Parent Meeting (virtually) on Saturday, July 25th. Teams will be allowed to practice beginning July 27th.
Pending we have moved into Phase 4, games will begin August. 8th - Oct. 17th (No games on Sept. 5th for Labor day weekend) and our rain date of Oct. 24th.
With the current unknowns, we are implementing several safety measures/guidelines for every one that will be attending any practices and/or games.
Once, registration is closed we will be sending out a list of safety measures and guidelines, please stay tuned.
Kelly and the BSSL Board
The Hononegah Youth Soccer Association (HYSA) is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization that oversees the youth soccer program known as
Bruce Samlan Soccer League (BSSL).
Bruce Samlan has been rooted deep in the Roscoe/Rockton area for more than 35 years now.
We offer the area's premier recreational soccer league for all skill levels and from all ages ranging from 4-18. Our main goal and what we are striving for is the development and growth of your child. We want your kids to be their very best, but also want them to have the most FUN! Fun equals learning! So, if you are looking for a great place to play and learn, than we have a spot for you!
We are a 100% Volunteer League
and we need YOUR help!
Did you know that it actually takes a lot to keep our
leagues running each season?
The role of our board members is simple: to help ensure that your Saturday games, your weekly practices and everything else from start to finish executes as smoothly as possible. This is no easy task at times, but in the end it is extremely rewarding.
Did you know that your voice and ideas can help
shape and improve our league and keep it running smoothly?
Ask us how you can help today!
Our openings can be found here.
HYSA is very honored to present the game of soccer in a recreational format through the Bruce Samlan Soccer League.
Our entire focus is teaching the game to your child(ren), improving your child's skills, and letting them make tactical game decisions with their teammates...as if often stated in soccer circles, "The best teacher is the game".
All of our formats are small-sided soccer (4v4, 5v5, 7v7, see more info here and below this text box) and provide the best opportunity for your player(s) to touch the ball, learn, make mistakes, and grow. In conjunction with U.S. Youth Soccer, these formats focus more on player development than winning.
SPRING SEASON is now open.
Sign up your soccer player for the 2020 Spring Soccer Season.
HYSA is proud to be a member of the Illinois Youth Soccer Association (IYSA), and through its charter, affiliated with U.S. Youth Soccer. IYSA provides secondary medical insurance for all HYSA players and sponsors many player development (Olympic Development Program [ODP]) programs, coach development programs, and parent resources.
We are very proud of our partnership with the Chicago Fire through its Soccer In The Community (SITC) outreach program. Our partnership is focused on player development and to date, we have conducted clinics for over 500 BSSL players and 35 Lions '82 players. Through the Chicago Fire camps, we have improved technical skills in a one-week camp (15 hours) for over 110 players in the last 3 years!
