Registration and Covid-19
Updated June 18, 20
Hello Roma Soccer families,
First and foremost, we'd like to thank you for your continued support at our club. We hope you are all keeping well and staying safe.
At this time, the Board of Directors have been working diligently to provide solutions for this ever-changing and unprecedented situation we find ourselves in.
At this time all in person soccer activities remain suspended as per Ontario Soccer.
Due to the current circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all house league divisions for the 2020 outdoor season. This includes U4, Soccer Starters through to U18. Refunds for house league will be processed automatically within the next couple of weeks. Online payments will be refunded to the same card used for payment. Cash payments will be refunded by cheque and sent to the last known address in our online database. While it is deeply disappointing we will not be able to share in your excitement on the field this year, we hope to welcome you all back next year. We wish you all a wonderful summer!
With regards to our travel program, we anxiously await additional information from our governing bodies including Ontario Soccer, Canada Soccer and Niagara Soccer League regarding plans for a potentially modified season. Our plans remain contingent on making an informed decision based on important answers we are still seeking. Once we receive the information we are waiting for, we will update you all regarding the season and our club plans. We want nothing more than to welcome you and your families back to our club, however it must unequivocally be safe to do so. The safety of our players, Team Officials and spectators remains a top priority. Rest assured, if the season is cancelled or modified, we will communicate refund options available to you at that time.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email our club at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We truly appreciate your patience at this time and thank you all again for your continued support.
