Important Updates

May 20: Important Refund Update Information

Each parent must request funds individually AND INCLUDE player name, parent name and team name. Coaches and Team requests will not be allowed.

Refunds will go directly back to the credit card used to pay for registration.

Refunds will be processed by Las Cruces Youth Soccer within 1-2 days of your email. We have a daily limit through StackSports and our bank so not all requests will be processed immediately but they will get processed in a timely manner.

Monies from refunds will take 1-3 days to appear in your account once processed. LCYSA does not control this portion of the refund. The refund comes directly from StackSports and again goes directly back into the credit used for registration.

Anyone with a past due amount from previous seasons for whatever reason will NOT be refunded.

Once a refund has been processed by LCYS, an email will be sent back to you confirming this action. Unfortunately, a majority of reply emails that have been sent today were sent back 'undeliverable' because our mail server believes that we are sending spam emails. You may or may not receive this confirmation email. If you do not and then notice you do not receive funds after a week or so, please email us again with this information.

Lastly, please be patient with us during this process.

May 20: Spring 2020 Soccer Cancellation & Refund Update

It is with great regret that the Las Cruces Youth Soccer Association Board of Directors has cancelled the 2020 Spring Season.

The LCYSA BoD had met on a number of occasions via Zoom meetings deciding each time to delay making a decision as we had truly hoped to be able to get back out on the field to play soccer.

The State of New Mexico's COVID-19 Plan Preview and the Governor's comments during press conferences 5/13 & 5/15 say that gatherings larger than 100 people will be prohibited and some spectator sports may be permitted on a modified basis with capacity restrictions in early July at the soonest (Page 15 - https://www.newmexico.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Plan-Preview_4.30.20.pdf).

Also New Mexico Youth Soccer Association announced Return to Activity Guidelines including a Return to Play Announcement and Return to Play Protocols (links below).
The very basic facts are that All coaches MUST be tested and confirmed negative, there is a limit of 5 players to 1 coach (neither players nor coaches can intermingle with other 5 to 1 groups) and play must be restricted to contactless sports and non-competitive play only. Any team, coach or players not adhering to these protocols will be heavily sanctioned.
We also must abide by the guidelines of the City of Las Cruces regarding the use of fields and parks.

Lastly, thank you so much to all the members of our association for your patience. There have been only a handful of requests for refunds, which the BoD has now approved, and the process will now begin.
***In order to receive a refund, an email MUST be sent to office@highnoonsoccer.org with the player and parent names along with the team name, please.***

The refund amount will be less the operating expenses that the association still incurs whether or not we play games. These expenses include things such as rent for the office space, utilities, payroll, NMYSA fees etc. We also had to take into account the costs we did incur for the games that were played which include referee fees and field rental fees.

Those who request a refund will receive the following:
U8 and under - $25
U9 and above - $35

Although the BoD has agreed to issue refunds, please keep in mind that these unfortunate circumstances we are currently facing will have a significant impact on the Associations financials. If anyone wishes to make a donation to the Association, whether it is a lessor refund or your full registration fee, it would be greatly appreciated.

April 17: Spring 2020 Soccer Postponement Update

As I'm sure you all know, we are still postponed with the federal and state guidelines / restrictions that have been put into place until at least April 30th.

LCYS has held two online Board of Director meetings through Zoom and has also been in contact with New Mexico Youth Soccer Association, Las Cruces Public Schools and the City of Las Cruces Parks & Recreation department.

We, like you, are anxious to get life back to normal and to get back on the pitch! Clearly though, the timeline is constantly changing for when that might happen. Because of this, no decisions have been made concerning the Spring 2020 season.

LCYS still has the hope of playing out the Spring season, likely in some form of a condensed format. This will probably mean playing through the month of June depending on if and when we can get started.

As it gets closer to the end of the month, we will have more information to post and send out as to when/if guidelines are lifted, when fields might be available and when there might be a start date to continue to play.

Please be patient and stay healthy while waiting to get back to the sport we love.

March 31: Spring 2020 Soccer Update

LCYSA is in contact with NMYSA about the spring 2020 season. NO decisions have been made yet but obviously the office will be closed until April 30th as a non-essential business as we are all following the federal guidelines to stay at home. Options being discussed locally are (if and when guidelines are lifted): Playing the full season into the summer, a shortened tournament style play to end the season more quickly and canceling the season altogether. Canceling the season will either involve rolling payments over to the next season or reimbursing everyone. This would be a huge undertaking and will require some time BUT WE ARE NOT QUITE THERE YET. Please be patient with us as we all try and figure out where we are going from here...

March 20: League Office Closed

The Las Cruces Youth Soccer Association office will be closed until further notice.

March 16: COVID-19 Coronavirus NMYSA Update

Based on the latest information from our national governing bodies, the CDC, Whitehouse and New Mexico State and City governments, effective immediately (Monday March 16), New Mexico Youth Soccer Association is suspending all soccer activity including trainings, practices, league play and all sanctioned travel until further notice. Please note, the NMYSA liability and Secondary Accident Insurance does not cover unsanctioned activities.

It is important that we remain united for the future sustainability of youth soccer in our local areas. We are hopeful that these recent actions will lessen the overall length of postponements and allow us to readily move forward once the restrictions are lifted. We sincerely appreciate your cooperation in this matter and will continue to do our best for the soccer communities we serve. Please continue to check for COVID-19 updates on our website at www.nmysa.net. You may also contact our office at the number or emails below.

March 12: League Play Suspension

NMYSA has been in contact with the NM Governor's office concerning the recent announcement and "Public Health Emergency Order to Limit Mass Gatherings due to COVID-19". Based on information from the Governor's office, youth soccer leagues do fall under the order's restrictions if the fields or outdoor spaces have perimeter fencing. As this would apply to most of our soccer fields/complexes, we are required to adhere to the order.

Effective immediately (Thursday, March 12), New Mexico Youth Soccer Association is suspending all local league play of our member affiliate leagues/clubs, including Las Cruces Youth Soccer Association, until further notice. This means we do not know how long the suspension will be in place. All teams, coaches and parents will be contacted before play resumes.

We realize that you will have many questions so we will do our best to keep you updated with the latest information. Please visit our website for current news at www.nmysa.net. You may also contact our office at the number or emails below. If your teams continue to practice, please adhere to the order which prohibits 100 or more gathered.

We sincerely appreciate your cooperation in this matter and trust our soccer communities will work together in the best interest of the youth players!
