Youth Soccer

Area soccer teams played during last spring season. Teams now wait for COVID-19 pandemic restrictions to lift so they can open this season.

A few months have passed since players worked on their respective sports in fields around Stephens County, but in coming days, some of the youth leagues will come back in the first phase to open their seasons.
Comanche Sports Group and the Field of Dreams set their opening for May 1, when they will open for practices and small gatherings.
In a post to parents, the group asked no more than one parent per player attend during the practices to keep in line with the social distancing protocols as players will utilize all four fields.
This happens in line with phase one of Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt’s plan to reopen the state after COVID-19 shuttered almost everything except essential businesses.
According to the organization, sports will be allowed once phase two begins.
The group said they hope to begin the season May 18. They created a practice schedule to follow social distancing guidelines.
Scheduling allows for two one-hour practices or one two-hour practice per week and the group asked coaches to please be mindful of field conditions and players’ health for the next two weeks. Coaches not on the schedule can contact the group to arrange practice times.
While practice will resume, bathrooms will not reopen. 
The Chisholm Trail Soccer Association (CTSA) in Duncan hopes to get started as well with their governing body, the Oklahoma Soccer Association (OSA), looking to resume games on May 16. This is under discussion with Duncan Parks.
OSA and CTSA’s Board voted to cancel the season for U6 and U8 recreation divisions for the spring 2020 season and will honor all registration fees for the fall 2020 season.
The U10 and U12 schedules will align with the travel league schedule to start on May 16. The CTSA board is currently discussing practices and hopes to release information as soon as possible.
Duncan Youth Baseball Club also has released information about their potential upcoming season and they hope to start back May 18 once the gathering rule is lifted.
They also hope to get more info by May 1 to set up a couple weeks of practice and get uniform needs handled. 
Abe Raizen Park in Duncan remains closed and Duncan leagues will wait for clearance from City of Duncan officials and the State of Oklahoma before starting the year.
