The Madison County United Soccer Association -- just like so many other youth sports organizations in the state -- has had to make major changes to its schedule this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Earlier this month, MUSA announced plans to push back the start of its fall season to Aug. 22, with practices starting the first week of August.
Many of those youngsters, though, are getting a chance to get back on the field this week.
The MUSA is playing host to a back-to-play skills camp at Lake Reba. The event started on Monday and will run from 9 a.m. to noon through Thursday.
The participants in the camp were divided into small groups in accordance with the guidelines set further by Gov. Andy Beshear and the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Players were kept at a safe social distance during water breaks, and coaches were wearing masks.
Teams will be drawn on July 29 for the MUSA fall season and a coaches meeting will be held on Aug. 2.
