Important info concerning the 2020 Spring Soccer Season

First, we wish you all well. The safety and well-being of our community is our primary concern. This is a challenging time for many, with so much uncertainty and social distancing, but spring is coming and when this period passes we will be back to having fun together! Meanwhile, we hope you get to enjoy some quiet time and get outdoors for walks.

We will have a virtual board meeting this evening, Thursday 3/19 from 6:30 PM – 9 PM, by Zoom, where important issues will be discussed. Please consider conferencing in using the information below.

We have received guidance from the governing leagues (full text below). In short, all soccer activities are suspended through April 15th. As it stands today this should not affect our season. However, we are anticipating that the date will be extended further and are preparing as follows:

Recreational Program

Our original schedule for Rec soccer begins on April 18. We are prepared to adjust the schedule as needed with the intent to provide the same number of sessions as originally scheduled. Rescheduled sessions may be set to Fridays, which are already allocated for makeups due to weather, Sundays, or a combination of both. We will do our best not to extend the season further into June.

Travel Program

As of this time the Roots Soccer League has not indicated a change in the schedule, however we anticipate some form of an abbreviated season length with the possibility of weeknight games, Saturday double-headers, or the addition of Sunday games. We may have only one or zero pre-season practices before the first games. In all cases we will continue to provide a thorough developmental program with our DOC Carla DeSantis and the staff coaches.
