Durham Region moved to RED ZONE - what that means for PFC Programs and the Pickering Soccer Centre.
Our Indoor season got off to a great start, but as we had feared, the pandemic slowly caught up with us causing Premier Ford to make his announcement this afternoon moving Durham Region into a Red Zone. This brings new restrictions for our soccer programs and also the facility. We are in regular contact with Durham Region Public Health and awaiting answers to some specific questions. However, effective Monday November 23rd we can confirm that:
Competitive and High-Performance programs are being assessed by Director of Soccer Operations Dave Benning and his staff with consideration given to returning outdoors subject to City permits. The format will return to training with no games and in order to keep numbers low at any given time there will be adjustments to the schedule.
Recreational programs including Indoor Rec (U3-U18), Women’s Rec and external bookings for games will be suspended until further notice. This is because of the facility limit and also because any type of match is not allowed.
All Abilities program will continue in its current format but Tammy will be in touch with parents for any adjustments to the schedule.
Pickering Soccer Centre Users have already been contacted directly by Lisa and can expect to hear more in the coming days.
As we learn more you will be communicated to directly via email (program specific information) or through this Weekly Email and social media (general information).
Don’t forget our helpful resources have been created to provide guidance to families and facility users prior to visiting the Pickering Soccer Centre:
Pickering Soccer Centre Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) that we will update as and when required
