Hello Soccer Family:
We at RFC trust that you are all safe and healthy during these anxious times. For those of you who have not received any updates from Ontario Soccer, they are continuing to monitor on a daily basis, while working with public health officials, government and sport authorities, and Canada Soccer to secure the most up to date news and status of our pending soccer season. To date, we have witnessed a hard postponement until at least the end of May, but nothing has been cancelled and the anticipation of a June/July start is still hopeful. RFC is operating under the assumption that there will be a soccer season but the extent, schedule, and format will remain undecided until we have clear direction from our governing bodies. Your Executive and Board have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure a successful season. We understand that your program has been interrupted and there will be a shortened summer league—know that the club is tracking and there will be partial refunds based on a pro rated scale, we are just waiting to find out the extent of the suspension of soccer activities.
These are trying times, some of which we have never seen before. But we are a strong community that WILL survive, and when we surface on the positive side of this – we’ll be stronger. Continue to be safe and look out for one another, and as soon as we are able to continue this beautiful sport, we will continue to put Rockwood FC on the map.
Rockwood FC President
