In-House Parents:

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 meetings have also been postponed so please do not expect to hear from your child's coach until the beginning of April as they currently do not have their rosters.


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.

Relax.  Enjoy the downtime.  Coaches' training is held the two weekends before the start of the season.  The fields also have to be prepped and ready.  After training, the coaches receive their rosters and can begin to schedule practices.  You may not hear from your coach until the week before the season begins.  Please be patient until the Monday evening before the season begins.  After that, call or email us and we will be happy to help you get in touch with your coach!
