Return to Play Decision

July 1, 2020

Last week the City of Sarnia informed us that municipal soccer fields would be closed until at least July 13th. While the recent decision by the City of Sarnia has left us with limited options, we at Sarnia FC want to let you know that we are diligently working to find a way to get our players back on the field safely. 

We understand that many people have experienced financial hardship during this unprecedented time. While we look to develop and refine our return to safe play protocols we are working alongside Power Up to provide full refunds in a timely manner to those who have registered for the youth development and adult recreational leagues.  We appreciate your patience as we work through this process.

As we look to the future and explore ways we can get our players back to the field, we wanted to send out a survey to get your feedback on what type of soccer programming you and/or your children would be interested in doing.

The survey should take approximately two minutes.  

We appreciate your input as we continue to develop our plan.  We look forward to safely returning to play as soon as possible.

COVID-19 Status Update

April 8, 2020

Hi everyone, as you know we are staying up to date with Ontario Soccer and using their direction to keep you informed. Please stay safe and know that everyone at Sarnia FC is thinking of you and your families and we will be ready to take to the pitch as soon as we are given the go ahead.  Here is the latest message from Ontario Soccer.

 


 

Ontario Soccer is announcing today, as further follow up to the Ontario Soccer and Canada Soccer announcements of March 12 and March 13 as well as the Ontario Soccer announcement of March 24, that all sanctioned in-person soccer events and activities for the month of May have been cancelled or postponed.

Ontario Soccer, in consultation with Canada Soccer and governmental advisors, continues to monitor the most recent developments surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and are assessing operations and deciding cancellations and postponements on a month-to-month basis as the pandemic continues to unfold.

This decision will affect the start of the spring portion of the 2020 Outdoor Season for the Local, Regional, District, Provincial, OASL, OPDL and all other leagues across Ontario.

For those who may be concerned about registering for the abridged outdoor season, Ontario Soccer is encouraging participants to do so now, so that Districts, Clubs and Academies can be fully prepared to kick off the Return to Play season when announced. Please contact your local Club or Academy for more information.

Multiple scenarios are being considered which includes a modified Outdoor Season in 2020 as well as further potential postponements, if necessary. Please also note that due to some municipal government restrictions, playing fields have been closed down beyond May, therefore some District Associations have issued membership notices of cancellation past May. Clubs or Academies should consult with your Member District Association if you have any questions.

At this time, Ontario Soccer is asking organizations at all levels of membership – District, Club and Ontario Registered Academies (ORA) – to actively communicate our official information updates to their soccer community members by posting on their website, sharing it via email and using social media. Ontario Soccer continues to receive a variety of direct inquiries from participants (and parents) requesting information. It is critical that all Soccer Clubs and ORAs keep their members informed during these challenging times.

As social or physical distancing is not a concern in an online, isolated environment, activities that can be completed online, such as Match Official Accreditation Clinics, some Coaching Courses, registering for future events and competitions such as Ontario Cup, or the outdoor season registration and other activities that do not require public or private gathering, will continue until further notice.

For further questions, please refer to the latest bulletin, the COVID-19 Updates page, which has all the latest information from Ontario Soccer, as well as resources for members to better inform themselves. 


Registration Status Update

March 30, 2020

 

Our club has and continues to take direction from our health experts, our government and Ontario Soccer. Our community continues to face extremely challenging times. We hope everyone is taking every precaution they can to stay safe.  

Ontario Soccer has committed to assessing program cancellations on a month to month basis.  At this time we do not know if or when we will be permitted to return to the field. However, we remain hopeful that there will be an outdoor soccer season in 2020. In the meantime, our club is doing everything we can to be ready if and when we get to return to the field. Watch for some exciting announcements regarding specific changes to our development league program in the coming weeks.  

At this time we wanted to update everyone on our on-going registration and answer some questions.  

* Registration remains open as we plan for a 2020 Soccer season.
* Any registration deadline will be communicated via website and social media as we receive direction from the officials listed above.
* Anyone who has registered already will receive a full refund in the event a season is not possible
* If a shortened or modified season occurs, registration fees will be adjusted.  

As new information from government and health officials is provided and direction from Ontario Soccer is given we will provide updates to all of our Sarnia FC families.  

If you have any questions please email Rich Chandler at adultrecsoccer@sarniafc.ca 

We hope to see you soon! In the meantime, please stay safe, stay home and take care!
