LEASIDE-EAST TORONTO SOCCER CLUB
UPDATES ON 2020 SEASON
APRIL 30, 2020
Today I receive the following email from the City concerning our permits:
At this time fields are closed until further notice. Although your amended permit reflects a start date,
it is important to note that we await direction from the Province and the City's Medical Officer of Health,
and cannot open sports fields before then. Any date on your amended permit should not be interpreted as a reopening date until we receive this direction.
We have had all of our permits cancelled by the City until June 28. I have kept the permits for July, August and September.
I think we will need to review the situation at the beginning of June and make a final decision by mid June.
We have been asked whether the 2020 summer soccer season will proceed.
The simple answer is that we do not know.
March 12, 2019 Today all soccer registrations for summer suddenly came to a stop and all telephone calls stopped.
Right now I think we have to wait until the beginning of May to see what to do.
We can image a league running in July, August and September, but that is speculative at this time.
We think the constraints on starting the league after May are: what are the City regulations; what are the health risks; what are other children activities doing; what do our parents want to do.
We have been asked by referees the status of their situation. As said above we don't know and we will make no decisions until the beginning of May.
Stay safe and healthy.
