Registration and Covid-19


Updated May 28, 20

Currently all in person soccer related activities are suspended for the month of June as per Ontario Soccer .Our House League season would've started this week. Instead, we are on hold hoping to have some direction from Ontario Soccer in the next few weeks. As soon as we have this information, we will pass it on to all our soccer families who are registered for 2020 outdoor summer season. 

We're not exactly sure what our season will look like if we are permitted to move forward with house league, however we do know we will do everything possible to ensure the safety of all our families if given the opportunity. 

If the season is cancelled due to Covid-19 , we will communicate this to parents / guardians and advise you of the refund process. 

Thank you for registering with our Roma family and we hope to see you all very soon!



First and foremost, we hope all our Roma soccer families are doing well during this time.  We thank all our hard working front line and essential workers who proceed to work each day to continue to provide us with the care and necessities we require.

As of April 7th, 2020, all sanctioned in person soccer related activities including games and practices are cancelled for the month of May as per Ontario Soccer. Our club is proactively reviewing all options including running a complete 2020 outdoor season when safe to do so. Depending on direction, we may also be required to modify our season. Either way, we are committed to providing our soccer families with another exciting season. 

We anxiously await direction from Ontario Soccer and will update all our families once we have more information. 

For now, registration for 2020 outdoor season remains open. Ontario Soccer encourages you to register now so once clubs receive direction to proceed, they can do so without delay.  Should the season be cancelled, we will update everyone accordingly. 

We encourage all our soccer superstars to continue training, wash those hands and practice social distancing. Click on the button below for more information about Covid-19 from Niagara Region.
