News2021 Registration Newsletter (March 14, 2021)
REGISTRATION NEWSLETTER – 2021 SEASON
We as an executive hope that this newsletter finds you and your family well.
Over the past year the executive has been working on planning for a 2021 soccer season. There are many new requirements that must be considered as we develop our “Return to Play Policy” with co-operation from the Grey Bruce Health Unit. This plan will require volunteers to assure that we as an organization are covering all the protocols and procedures laid out in the Return to Play Policy.
We believe that we can offer a program that will be safe and fun for everyone. Though soccer will look different than in previous years it is our desire to create a program that will allow children to get back on to the field and playing with friends, new and old.
There will be a mandatory pre-registration for families to complete in order for us to know how many players and what age group they are from. We need this information prior to beginning more detailed planning due to requirements of the Return to Play Policy. A $25 deposit fee will be required at the time of pre-registration to secure your player’s spot. Do note that if we are unable to have soccer this summer due to the virus and the local health unit’s orders, this money will be refunded to you in full. Please note that money will not be refunded if at a later date you choose not to have your child participate in the program provided.
Currently, we are looking at offering a in town program beginning approximately June 1 going to mid-August. At this time, we are unable to travel to near by towns so all sessions will be in Hanover at our local fields. Do note, there is a possibility of this changing later in the summer, again, dependent on the situation. Under 5 and Under 6 groups will meet once a week for one hour, where our Under 8 and above will meet twice per week. Dates and times will be shared when we have more information after pre-registration.
For our younger players, the basis of our program, will be skill development and small sided scrimmages at the end of each session. For our older players, we will be having small sided scrimmages such as 6 vs 6. This will allow us to follow the protocols expected by the Grey Bruce Health Unit.
All pre-registrations will need to be completed on-line along with the $25 deposit fee; payment can be made via e-transfer (preferred) or Paypal. The cost for U4 and U6 will be a total of $50, U8 an older the total cost will be $75. The remaining fee of $25 or $50 will be due prior to your player being registered with OSA and placed in a cohort.
Pre-registration will be available on our website at www.hanoverminorsoccer.ca beginning March 22 and will close on April 9.
