Letter from Ontario Soccer – Cancelled all Soccer activities

COVID-19 Update

May 16, 2020
In these uncertain times, the health and well-being of our players, coaches, match officials,
volunteers, spectators, staff and our community is at the top of our priority list as we continue
to monitor the potential spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
On May 11th, Ontario Soccer announced “all sanctioned in-person soccer events and activities
for the month of June have been cancelled or postponed”. The notice, along with all Ontario
Soccer COVID-19 updates, can be found on the OSA website COVID-19 updates page
https://www.ontariosoccer.net/page/show/5697170-covid-19-updates.
This means that our outdoor soccer season will be delayed until at least the end of June. Going
forward multiple scenarios are being considered which may include a modified Outdoor Season
for 2020 or cancellation, if necessary. Please note that due to some municipal government
restrictions, playing fields may remain closed beyond June.
The SDYSC continues to diligently monitor this situation and are preparing contingency plans for
all possible outcomes. The Club will provide updates as they come, which will be posted on our
website www.simcoesoccer.ca. We appreciate your patience as we sort out what is best for our
membership and most importantly in keeping our players safe and maintaining a positive
soccer experience for all.
Thank you for your understanding as we navigate through these uncertain times.

Stay safe
