LURAY, Sept. 17 — On Thursday, the Page County Recreation Department posted on its Facebook page that all soccer games and practices will be “postponed until further notice.”
The post indicated that the youth soccer leagues coordinated by the county recreation department “hope to be able to start back next week.”
No direct cause was stated for the pause to the soccer seasons. However, with three of the county’s nine school sites shut down due a rise in COVID-19 cases and quarantine due to exposure — including two elementary schools and one middle school — it seems logical that school-aged children playing soccer would have their seasons put on hold for the same reasons.
The youth fall soccer league includes four divisions: Micro Division (Ages 4-5 and Grade K); Junior Division (Grades 1-2); College Division (Grades 3-4); and Pro Division (Grades 5-8).
In other recreation news, a Sept. 2 Facebook post indicated that the annual 5K Glow Run hosted by the Page County Recreation Department will be moved to the spring of 2022.
