On Thursday, March 12, Southern Nevada Soccer Association suspended all trainings, practices, and games due to the COVID-19 virus. After SNSA announced its suspension, Nevada Youth Soccer Association (the USYS governing body in Nevada) announced a suspension of all soccer activities, and Elite Clubs National League (a league in which several SNSA competitive teams compete) likewise suspended all games. The Governor of Nevada has declared a state of emergency, and his Road to Recovery plan does not allow youth sports leagues to resume in Phase I; in addition, the City of Henderson has shut down all athletic facilities through the end of May.
SNSA will suspend all trainings, practices, and games indefinitely, and will also close the SNSA office. We will continue to monitor the rapidly-changing impact of COVID-19 and will abide by all directives from federal, state, and local health officials and soccer’s governing bodies. SNSA will evaluate our options and will issue a league-wide communication with a status update in May.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this challenging event. Please keep your family safe and healthy during this hiatus, and we look forward to seeing everyone back on the field soon.

Southern Nevada Soccer Association enthusiastically supports the UNLV men's and women's soccer programs, and the recently-established College of Southern Nevada men's and women's soccer programs We believe that collegiate soccer benefits the community, and provides opportunities for student-athletes in Southern Nevada to continue to pursue their academic and athletic goals without having to leave their home town. Over the years, SNSA has worked with UNLV to provide player training and coach education through camps and clinics, and participated in SNSA group events at UNLV men's and women's games; we look forward to continuing this relationship in the years ahead, and establishing a similar relationship with the CSN program.
