Hello to all our Valued Recreational Members,
On behalf of the Cambridge Youth Soccer, we wanted to provide an update regarding the 2020 Summer Recreational (House League) Season. In January, CYS launched our registration drive – working diligently to prepare for our annual kick-off date on Victoria Day.
Whether you are loyal members who have been with CYS for multiple years or planning to join us for the first time in 2020, we look forward to providing young player the best possible soccer experience when it is deemed appropriate by Canada Soccer, Ontario Soccer, City of Cambridge, and the Province of Ontario.
Now that the weather is warming up and the sun is starting to shine a bit brighter, we are sure that outdoor play is on the mind. We want to take a moment to answer a few ‘hot topic’ questions regarding our upcoming season:
Will the Season start in May?
The City of Cambridge, in line with other municipalities, has made the decision, to remove field permits until June 30th. CYS wholeheartedly agrees with this decision and supports the mandate which all sport organizations must follow amid the Coronaviris (Covid 19) outbreak.
Thus, our programming will be shifting to a later launch date to be announced as conversations with the City of Cambridge continue to evolve during this time.
When do we expect to begin programming?
CYS is currently planning to kick off the first week of July.
In the coming weeks, the club will post an updated session schedule in line with the new dates. These dates are tentative, pending approval to return to play from our governing bodies, municipality and provincial government.
When will updates be sent?
Updates will be received weekly via social media and also monthly direct via the CYS Member Newsletter.
We plan to provide the next monthly newsletter update on May 4th, 2020. We are remaining optimistic that by May 4th we will have a clearer picture of our summer outlook.
When can registrations take place?
Registrations are currently ongoing at www.cambridgesoccer.ca We are now offering a special promotion to register now with a $10 down payment and then pay the balance of program registration just prior to the season starting.
When will other programs begin?
· Indoor Soccer for 2020-21 will consist of two blocks – Fall (Oct-Dec) & Winter (Jan-Mar). Each block will be 10-11 weeks and parents can sign up their children for one or both blocks. Registration for this program will begin within the next 2months
· Futsal will run from mid-September through early November in school gyms.
· All Summer Development Programs will be begin once fields and facilities are open for play.
Cambridge Youth Soccer remains committed to following the guidelines of our governing bodies, municipality and provincial government. We, along with Ontario Soccer, are in collaborative discussions to support a safe return to play.
Sport is an invaluable part of a young person’s physical, mental, emotional and social well-being. When our community emerges from COVID-19, CYS will be ready to welcome your children back to the pitch!
Our office remains closed until further notice. Should you require to speak to someone directly, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to May 4th and our next opportunity to update you.
