To Our Valued Supporters,
We hope that this message finds you all safe and well during this unprecedented time.
The Wallingford Youth Soccer Club, like all others in the soccer community, has been patiently hoping that the current events would pass by now and we would find ourselves on the sidelines of our soccer fields, in anticipation of our 36th Annual Tournament. With great regret, The Wallingford Invitational Soccer Tournament committee is cancelling the 2020 tournament due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
In consideration of the current Connecticut State travel restrictions, US Youth Soccer and CDC guidelines, and best practices for social distancing we felt it is necessary to keep the players, coaches, spectators, and volunteer’s health and safety as our first priority. While August is still a few months away all the guidance we have received from our state and municipal government is that mass gatherings will be the last phase of the Reopen CT plan.
We thank you all for your continued support that has made TWIST the longest running tournament in Connecticut and look forward to seeing you in 2021!!!
Brian Burr, Sean Stowik, and Dave Rodriguez
