AYSO Area 12C

News Detail


Mar, 2020


Effective immediately, we urge all AYSO programs to suspend any leagues or tournaments, and to postpone any spring programs not yet underway until further notice. The NBOD will conduct a teleconference on Monday and there may be additional guidance at that time. We are not recommending a specific date to return to activities until we know more about the exposure risks. 

As Area Director of Area 12C, I have encouraged the Regions to please follow the recommended policy stated above. However, if the county or city/town has even more restrictions, they have been instructed to follow those policies. Regions reserve the right to extend their Spring seasons beyond what they would normally end at, terminate them completely or shorten as they see fit. Parents, guardians and players are asked to please respect the tough decisions the Regions have to make due to the current situation. Please respect that decision. Regions have been give guidance on refunds, however most may postpone refunds if they plan to get at least a portion of the season played. 

I kindly ask you to please stay calm and don't become argumentative with the Regional Commissioner and the Region Board. Please remember they are volunteers! Stress and frustration can be high due to the pandemic of the COVID-19 spreading. I promise getting upset will not make ANY situation better!

Just like any event in the US, until restrictions have been lifted, your Region may not know what is going to happen. Time frames have been placed, but that doesn't mean they can't be extended. Regions will be given more guidance as it flows.

Thank you for choosing AYSO and please, please, please, be patient as we all work though this. Decisions like this are not easy to make, but we want the help ensure the health and safety of our players, volunteers and their families.

Please keep up to date with your county and city guidance as well. New Mexico has a dedicated site:  Click on the "Latest Updates" link for most current information for the State of New Mexico.
