Important Update from the Vaughan SC Board of Directors, Director of Soccer, Technical Director and Staff
VSC June 12, 2020 Newsletter
We hope that you and your families are doing well!
Ontario Soccer, in consultation with Canada Soccer and government advisors, continues to monitor the most recent developments surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and are now in a position to announce our approved Return to Play Guide – Protocols and Recommendations for Ontario Soccer affiliated Clubs and Ontario Registered Academies.
The Ontario Government announced on June 8 that additional workplaces are scheduled to re-open – for soccer this means ‘Outdoor Amateur Team Sports,’ as per the government’s directive.
As part of the announcement, the Government of Ontario stated that beginning on June 12, at 12:01 a.m. outdoor amateur team sports have been cleared to begin training on a regional basis.
Ontario Soccer will be mirroring the Government of Ontario regional approach for the restart to sports this summer, with 25 Public Health Units now cleared to move to Stage 2 of the government’s plans. Ten Public Health Units will remain in Stage 1 until it is safe to move into Stage 2. The GTA and surrounding communities are still in Phase 1.
We do not have a confirmed start date yet; however, our technical staff, board of directors and administrative staff are working on our ‘return to play’ initiative that’s based on the Ontario Government, Municipal Government, Canada Soccer and Ontario guidelines.
Ontario Soccer will determine timelines for each Phase in alignment with the Province of Ontario provincial health authorities involving government orders, restrictions and guidelines. This will be communicated via future Action Bulletins when applicable.
We ask for your continued patience and understanding as we steer through this next phase.
We will be on the pitch shortly. It is just a matter of time.
Stay healthy and stay safe!
