We hope that good health and safety continue to grace you, your households, and your loved ones. Our HTSA families are close to our hearts and always in our thoughts and prayers. During these trying times, the most important thing is for our families to remain safe. Please follow the guidance of our national, state, and local leaders in order to reduce the spread and your risk of exposure to the virus, including social distancing. Being that Louisiana is an epicenter of this virus, it is of the utmost importance that these directives are followed.
I am proud of the resilience and flexibility with which our soccer community is responding to the many challenges presented by the Coronavirus pandemic. Our membership is strong. I know you are all doing what is right to protect your family during these trying times. Thank you so much for your patience, support, and understanding as we continue to plan for our future.
As a small business, the board of directors of Houma Terrebonne Soccer Association has been in constant communication regarding how to best navigate this situation. At the moment, all soccer activities have been suspended until April 30, 2020.
HTSA continues plans for programming for all ages. While we are suspending activities, we plan to resume and hopefully deliver as much as possible for all of our members. Our recreational and competitive programs were near the end of their seasons and our three-year-old program was just beginning. As this is an ever-evolving situation, we have developed a few contingency plans which are subject to change based upon updates from the governing authorities. All of these plans take into account the latest information available from LSA, USYSA, and local/state governments.
We are also formulating plans for summer programs and will send those out separately.
Thank you for your continued patience as we all navigate these difficult times. At some point – hopefully not too far in the future – the beautiful game will resume.
As always, stay safe and we hope to see you all on the pitch soon.
Kevan Keiser, President HTSA
