To the AYSO soccer community, the SCV Showdown Tournament Committee would like to thank those of you that have planned to join us this April.  However with the recent world events and recommendations of both medical experts and the AYSO leadership it has been determined for the safety and health of our volunteers and participants that we cancel this year’s tournament.  For those teams that have already submitted your tournament packet along with payment, please note that NO checks have been deposited.  Members of the tournament committee will be working over the course of the next couple of weeks to return checks to your Regions mailing address for your records.

Again we thank you for your continued support of the SCV Showdown and are disappointed that we will not be able to hold this year’s tournament.  We believe this is the best course of action to keep our entire AYSO family healthy and safe.  We hope to see you in the Spring 2021!

Again be safe and remain healthy.  If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact the tournament director via email at scvshowdown@aol.com.

Yours in Soccer,

The SCV Showdown Tournament Committee
