MYSA Summer State Championships

This Weekends Championships - Plan for Heat! Plan for Traffic!

Hello Team Leaders!  – We are looking forward to a great MYSA State Championships Soccer Tournament!

As we are in the summer season, please be aware of a few issues this particular time in July:

  • Weather forecasts are predicting very hot weather.  Teams are asked to remind their families to bring plenty of water for the players. As the heat index rises, so does the possibility of games being shortened or even suspended.  Hot weather sometimes invites severe storms. The MYSA Weather Policy and Recommendations within, will be used to guide game sites this weekend. CLICK HERE for more information on the weather policy.
  • Summer in Minnesota is also synonymous with “Road Construction Season”. We know how important it is for your teams and families to arrive early. Please visit the Minnesota Department of Transportation website for this weekends a traffic bulletin and how road construction may impact your travel.
