“…the Club probably don't hear this enough so I'll take this opportunity to say Thank You. I appreciate all the hard work you guys have done and continue to do behind the scenes to make recreational soccer happen. I truly missed it this summer and was worried it wouldn't be possible for this fall/winter. With Clubs like PFC leading the way and members working together we may just be able to pull this off!”
Dear PFC Family,
Messages like this are a huge boost to the Clubs overall morale. We want to thank Carissa with the Women’s Rec League for sharing that with us and we believe it is the sentiment of many. We spoke last year about this time of year as a key transition for our clubs as we shift gears to a busy Indoor season and we are blessed that our partnership with the City of Pickering enables us to operate a year-round Club within our incredible facility.
Coaches, Team Managers, Staff and Board continue to work incredibly hard to make sure we have answers to your questions and can plan as best as possible for the future. In order to prepare everyone for the Indoor season we will be holding Program Specific presentations this evening to address:
Summary of the Return to Play protocols as a reminder for current players and to provide new members with the protocols we have operated successfully since July 2nd.
- Program outlines for the Indoor season including; training schedule, fees, program details and credit/refund plans.
- Pickering Soccer Centre entry and exit protocols. As you can imagine, our planning needs to be thorough and will need to take into account staggered field times, multiple entry/exit points, additional third-party users, sanitization and contact tracing protocols.
Pickering Soccer Centre protocols will be just, if not more, stringent and we look forward to sharing those with you soon.
Program Specific Presentations will be held on Friday October 2nd at:
· 6:30-7:25pm Grassroots (U8-U12 Development players)
· 7:30-8:25pm Competitive (U13-U21)
· 8:30-9:25pm OPDL (all age groups)
Log in details have been provided to current players and those that have attended tryouts or open houses.
Recreational programs such as; Indoor Rec League, Women’s League, All Abilities and Walking Soccer as well as our third party rentals have been provided with a link to a pre-recorded presentation that they can view at their leisure.
As a reminder, The City of Pickering have agreed to work with us on extending the ability to access field permits through to Thanksgiving weekend. This will enable us to squeeze more inter club games in before the indoor season and in doing so keep our players out in the fresh air that little bit longer. Coaches will update you on schedules for the weeks ahead.
