PREMIER
Tony Pisicoli district 4 commissioner of Cal South has put a petition to Governor to Newsom. Please share and sign to bring back soccer California with new return to play protocols.

Is CalSouth formally putting their backing behind this petition, or is just a commissioner putting this forward?

First: this dude needs an editor. Quit the rambling, ffs.

But most importantly: this right here is the absolute perfect evidence for the complete incompetence of Cal South as a governing body. They are beyond useless if this is the best they can come up with. Burn them to the goddamn ground; the first organization that can get LAUSD to issue field permits should be the new Socal governing body.

I went ahead and signed the petition for the greater good.

Whoever wrote this really should have a high school class help them, my son read this and says it would'nt even get a pass in English 2. Very poor structure, reads like a rant without getting to the points in the first paragraph and just runs on and on without have a clear message or set of action plans for example in the conclusion.

There has been around half dozen petitions now, you would hope that a organization with work with others to come up with a comprehensive plan to get youth sports going again but apparently this is the best CS can do which reads like a middle schoolers english project paper.

well he represents Cal South and is the commissioner so I’m sure they are on board as well.
Not the commissioner, one of the district commissioners. Big difference. And knowing him, it would not surprise me if he is doing this on his own. Not sure how Calsouth can come out with an official position of safety first while at the same time backing a proposal that some would suggest, impies they don't care about children's safety. That would be a risky position for them to take.

Definitely not my position but pointing out the obvious. I think everything should already be open, league should have started last weekend. At this point, stop yanking our chain and let the kids play or pull the plug. The only reason to lead everyone on would be to keep the money flowing into club soccer. As of today, most counties are at least 42 days out before they can play games. That is just to get in the yellow. Says nothing about getting field permits, etc. So why keep pretending?

I don't imagine that this was officially endorsed by CalSouth, but just an individual that was leveraging their title. A proper response from CalSouth would have been a letter to the governor and the state health director on CalSouth letterhead, or better yet a letter signed by all the major sports associations in California. It would likely be ignored by the governor, but as a governing authority for soccer, CalSouth has a responsibility to do so.

Tony should resign. Maybe someone who lives in his District will start a petition.

Such a whiner! And he doesn't even get his title correct.
He is asking for clarity. Part of the role of government is to provide clarity. We’ve got rules and plans to open bars, restaurants, movie theaters, casinos, and amusement parks. Every one of those is more dangerous than outdoor sports. It is reasonable to ask what are the rules and plans for opening youth sports.

contact practice, scrimmages, and league play ought to be somewhere on the color chart.

My own view is that practice is red, scrimmage is orange, and league is yellow. But it should be defined.

Bingo. An online petition is nothing more than a feelgood "look, we aren't doing *nothing*" action. A real governing committee would be aggressively getting in contact with the leagues, the clubs, and the schools to set up a coordinated effort. If at the end of the conversations you realize that it is unlikely that kids will be getting back on the field to play in 2020, then go ahead and have the leagues cancel their fall seasons, don't sugarcoat it. We are adults and we can handle not making drives early Saturday mornings.

Right from the beginning Cal South took "wait and see" approach. Nothing changed since then. The big question - why do we even need Cal South and keep paying them fees? It's the perfect time for new governing body of soccer to step up in Cali.
If youth games being played in NJ, there is no reason why we shouldn't be playing here.

There are already at least three other USSF-sanctioned youth soccer governing bodies active in Southern California - US Club Soccer, United Soccer Leagues, and AYSO. There may be others, and there is also unsanctioned but well-organized activity in Sunday leagues, indoor, futsal, occasional 3v3, 6v6, and beach soccer tournaments -- did I miss any?

Yellow, is what, a daily average of (1 / 100,000) for a full week? I think a good bet would be selecting which comes first, a vaccine available to the public or CA gets to yellow. I'm going with a Vaccine available to the public. (No, not counting the "volunteers" vaccine the Chinese military is getting or whatever it is they are doing in Russia.)

Yellow is possible. San Jose has been at the border of orange for 2 days now. The April numbers were in yellow for a bit. It is doable.

Whether we actually have the will to do it is another question.
