Coaches please review the letter below about the start of the our Spring Season...


In-House Coaches:

Our Board of Directors have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely and we have had numerous discussions on how we are going to proceed with the Spring 2020 season in light of the national, state and local responses to the pandemic. Our top priority at River Valley Soccer Association (RVSA) is the health and safety of our players, coaches, parents and families.


At this time, we have made the decision as a group to postpone the start of our season. We will be using the current Kankakee Valley School Corporation schedule as a guideline, therefore, as of now our first practices cannot start until April 6. From now until April 6, the Field of Dreams is closed to RVSA activities. 


Our coaches meeting has been rescheduled for  Saturday, March 28 at 9:00am at the Keener Fire Department. Please be advised that there are significant rule changes that will impact our games this season in both gameplay and health and safety. Your attendance is greatly appreciated. The following is a link to the required background check. http://www.saysoccer.org/Default.aspx?tabid=320041 Please complete and record the confirmation number for your records and ours. Also, If your concussion certificate is not current or if you are a new coach please have this completed prior to the meeting. The certificate is valid for three years.

All dates are currently subject to change. If the school corporation extends their time off we will adjust our schedule accordingly. Due to the urgency of this matter, you may receive multiple notifications regarding this subject determined by your role in RVSA. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and your cooperation is appreciated.
