TVSC Update - Masks no longer required

Twin Valley Soccer Club and all the leagues and tournaments in which we participate are part of the Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer Association (EPYSA).

The Pennsylvania Department of Health lifted the statewide masking order on June 28th, 2021. In addition, local counties lifted the masking requirements for youth in sports during "high exertion" outdoor activities in May 2021. Therefore, masks are not required for youth participating in outdoor soccer activities.

We remind everyone to regularly check with their specific facilities and be aware of any local ordinances, now and throughout the season.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will provide updates on any and all necessary COVID-19 information.
