Chilliwack FC Programming Update – March 14

March 14, 2021

Dear Chilliwack FC Families,

It’s hard to believe we’ve been maneuvering our way through the COVID-19 pandemic for just a year…it seems like a twenty. However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel, even if it’s just a glimmer there is a light and we’re hopeful we’ll have the kids back on the field playing games in the near future. As we anxiously await the Provincial Health Office to ease the restrictions a little further to allow games to be played the Chilliwack FC Executive, and in particular the Spring Coordinators, are busy planning the Chilliwack Ford Spring Soccer season for you and the organizers of the Cascadia League are busy planning too.

Planning for the unknown is challenging at best but here is what we can tell you about the two spring options as of today with the caveat that they are always subject to change.

Payment date for both the Chilliwack Ford Spring Soccer League and Cascadia League has been moved to Wednesday, March 31, 2021.

Chilliwack Ford Spring Soccer League

  • Start Date – Monday, April 12
    • Chilliwack FC’s COVID-19 Return to Play Policy remains unchanged as of March 12, 2021. To view the policy and our other Health and Safety procedures and protocols please click here.
    • We don’t know if we will be able to play games as of this date but we will execute something for the kids as we await the green light for games. Of course, if we can play games, we most certainly will;
    • If we can play games, schedules will be released one week prior to your first scheduled game;
    • We are planning on grouping teams of cohorts of 4. This is what the health orders in the fall allowed for so this is how we’re approaching the season;
    • Game formats may be modified to accommodate the cohorts of 4 and the number of registrations in each age group;
    • As of today, provincial health order restricts parents from being able to watch games from within the facility, we are unsure if this will change or not when and if the orders are eased.
  • Game Days – While they are still subject to change, we are fairly confident that these will be the game days for the upcoming season. All games will be played at Exhibition Field.
Division Gender Game Days
U9-U10 Girls Wednesday
U7-U8 Girls Wednesday
U9-U10 Boys Tuesday
U5-U6 Girls Tuesday
U7-U8 Boys Thursday

  • While subject to change, training nights for the Cascadia Soccer League have been determined as follows:
Day Time Division Gender Field

Sincerely,

 

Andrea Laycock

Canada Soccer #SportHelps Campaign

March 10, 2021

A message from Canada Soccer:

With just 30 seconds of your time you can ensure local soccer programs have support from all levels of government to continue growing the sport in Canada. Players, parents, and volunteers in our communities all benefit from sport, which is why we have joined the Sport Helps campaign.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many events and programs to be cancelled, reducing revenues and impacting programs from the grassroots, development and National Teams. To help offset these losses and ensure continuity of our programs, we have partnered with other national sports organizations to ask the government for added support.
We want to see programs and events come back strong, and are pushing for investments in the upcoming federal budget. We hope you will lend your voice to help the national soccer community make sure politicians understand what is at stake.
WRITE A LETTER
To get active, we ask that you go to www.sporthelps.ca and click the ‘take action’ button. You can then send a letter with just a few clicks to your local MP, the Minister of Finance and the Minister responsible for Sport in Canada.
