Dear KDSC members,
Since March of this year, the Kemptville District Soccer Club (KDSC) Board of Directors has been continuously monitoring the events of the Covid-19 pandemic and the advice of our Provincial and Federal leaders, as well as Ontario Soccer and Canada Soccer.
Ontario Soccer implemented a 3-phase approach to opening the season that comes with many restrictions and requirements to ensure safe distancing. Under these restrictions and requirements, KDSC would be required to implement measures such as health checks, questionnaires, and attendance logs, sanitization stations, among others, as well as require a waiver that excludes the KDSC from pandemic liability as of July 1, 2020.
KDSC recently announced that the 2020 House League season would not be proceeding this year. After carefully reviewing the risks associated with being able to uphold the many restrictions and requirements laid out by governing bodies, and the logistics to operate under the Ontario Framework for Re-opening, the KDSC Board of Directors recently voted unanimously to cancel the 2020 Summer Outdoor season and all soccer related activities. The decision was not made lightly and we can appreciate the disappointment this may cause for our players, coaches, referees and parents and the many volunteers that help deliver our programs to the community.
It is still too early to determine whether our Winter Indoor program and season will be impacted. As always, we will continue to monitor the path of reopening and return to play, and we will continue to provide updates about the status of future programs.
Refunds will be offered to those that have registered, however, if you are interested in a credit to your account it will be applied to the winter program or the 2021 season. For assistance or questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to welcoming you back to the field. We wish you all a safe, happy and healthy summer.
The Board of Directors of the Kemptville District Soccer Club
