League Statement regarding COVID-19

Dear San Marcos Youth Soccer and Revolution Members


SMYS is suspending all programs and competition activities effective immediately and will remain closed in accordance with Federal, Sate and local  authorities.  This suspension comes as a result of the propagation of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and it is taken with extreme concern and interest in the health and safety of our entire community. The suspension covers all SMYS Recreation and Revolution Competitive events including, but not limited to, Arena Soccer, State Cup, National Cup, California Regional League, and supporting practices.


SMYS in alignment with our governing bodies is closely monitoring national and state organizations, including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the California Department of Public Health, the United States Soccer Federation, US Youth Soccer and the United States Adult Soccer Association, State of California, San Marcos City and San Marcos School District.  Thus, SMYS may extend this suspension, depending on the facts and recommendations not available at this time.


We will continue to evaluate the circumstances associated with COVID-19 and update our status to members as conditions change and will communicate updates on our website, social media channels and via email. Please check our website at: and for continued updates and information related to the Coronavirus throughout this period.


The safety of our community is our main priority and we believe that suspending all activity through April 17th gives us adequate time to examine all the recommendations and advisories before making further decisions.

What about Referees?

Everyone sees the play differently.

The main goal of the referee is to make the game safe and fun for the children. 

Being a referee is not as easy as it appears.  They are a another coach on the field for small sided games.

Remember, many referees are brothers and sisters of soccer players or soccer players themselves. Others are fellow parents trying to just help youth soccer players have FUN!

Recognize that the referee is doing his/her best. It may not be what you saw, but the goal is to let the game be played so that children can have FUN!.

Referees deserve respect and support too!

Helping the referee to call the trip or a foul only confuses children.

Disagreeing hurts you child's respect for the referee, and may hurt the view of the referee towards your child's team.

Criticism causes referees to quit rather than become better. Many referees quit due to being yelled at by parents.

As you cheer for the players, cheer for the referees too.
