*AS OF 3/16/20 - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update from Palumbo Soccer - Official statement
Due to the pandemic of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we will pause all training and games as the safety of our players, families, and staff is our number one priority.
After continuous monitoring of the situation, we are forced to act on the recommendations of our state officials, the New York State Department of Health and CDC by practicing social distancing and help flatten the curve.
As a Club and Academy, we have decided to postpone all programs run by JPSA and JPSC until further notice.
At this moment, JPSC league participation has been postponed as we have received notifications from NYCSL and WYSL. We will be in communication with our partnering leagues and clubs in regard to when these competitions will take place. We must take the spread of this highly contagious and harmful virus seriously and work together in a calm matter for the safety of everyone. We will provide further updates as further decisions are made. Please continue to check your emails and monitor the news updates. We greatly appreciate your cooperation as we work together to protect the health and safety of all Palumbo Soccer families and staff.
Below are a few links for further COVID-19 CoronaVirus education and how you can keep yourself and others healthy and safe from the spread of the virus.
Joe Palumbo Soccer Academy has been the pioneer in youth soccer development for over 20 years now. Thousands of children in the area have learned the skills of the game through the various programs offered including summer camps, skills training, and in house league play in Spring and Fall as well as winter training in rented space.
Our mission is to develop, enhance, and foster the physical and mental abilities that each individual child possesses to play the game of soccer at the greatest possible attainable level. This involves equally building self-esteem and confidence to pursue and successfully undertake any career presented to them as adults. Our goal is to build and mentor the individual! To accomplish this, we have developed programs at this academy that will fulfill our members' desires.
JPSA programs are designed to serve everyone who wants to get a consistent, better understanding of this beautiful game!
