OS - Governing Body Suspends ALL Sanctioned Soccer for Month of April
As a further follow up to the Ontario Soccer and Canada Soccer announcements of March 12 and March 13 regarding the suspension of all sanctioned soccer events and activities, Ontario Soccer today is announcing that all scheduled events and activities for the month of April have been cancelled.
Ontario Soccer, in consultation with Canada Soccer, have been
monitoring the most recent developments with the Coronavirus (COVID-19)
and the emerging public health crisis and are currently assessing
operations and deciding cancellations on a month-to-month basis as the
COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold.
At this time, Ontario Soccer is also 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. We have received 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.
