Our club is eager to see our young players back in action playing the game they love as soon as possible. However, we must take a cautious approach in ensuring that the return to play is implemented in a safe and organized manner.

The post COVID-19 return to play will be implemented in phases and will apply to U4-18 age groups. The first phases will address return to train.

The return to play must adhere to both Provincial Health as well as Provincial & National Soccer Association guidelines. Adjustment of the outlined programming below may be necessary to comply. Timing of progressions from one phase to the next will be dictated by the above authorities.
