Dear Eastside Families,
Happy New Year! We hope you are keeping safe and well and that you enjoyed the holiday season.
This email is an update of what we are planning for the 2021 recreation soccer season and what it will look like. There will be some changes due to COVID-19 and we want you to know the safety of our players, coaches and members comes first.
The Spring Recreation season will start in May and will include six games at a reduced cost. Registration will open on February 15th and we hope everyone will register early so that we can secure our volunteer coaches and form teams in a timely manner to allow for teams to be organized and begin to train two weeks before games begin on May 1st. For those who have a credit from 2020, you will receive an email that will include a Discount Code to use when registering. This must be used before registration closes on March 19th.
We understand this unprecedented time has been hard for many of our members and we know that you have missed being out on the field. The month of May seems a long time away so we want to give families the opportunity to participate in some soccer before our Spring Season.
In the Fall, we held a weekly session that allowed kids to practice and scrimmage since we were unable to hold a league. We received some great feedback on this program and plan to hold a similar Turn Up and Play program beginning February 6th.
This program will be held over six Saturdays. Players will come to the Eastside Complex and get to train and play soccer games on the turf field. More information and a link to register will be sent out on Monday.
Thank you all for your support in 2020! We look forward to our upcoming opportunities and hope to see you very soon.
