We have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 PECSA House league Season. The health and safety of the players and all those involved is our number one priority. This was not an easy decision and there were a variety of factors to consider.Despite currently being in the Green- to protect zone, the restrictions and guidelines from Ontario Soccer present a challenge with limited soccer field availability, contributed to the season.
The Executive is always looking for volunteers. If you would like to get involved, please reach out to us by email at email@example.com, FB or consider attending our AGM later this year.
Thank you & stay safe
We, as an association, do our best to balance teams. If after the second or third week, there is a clear unbalanced team-weak or strong-we reserve the right to make adjustments to ensure everyone has a great season.
This is a list of commonly asked questions, please read through them before contacting us, as you may find your answer here.
1. When does the 2020 season start?
Our season starts the week of May 19th 2020 with our tournament weekend on August 8/9.
2. What night of the week do we play?
Until we close our registration, we are unable to predict how many teams in each age group, or what nights of play they will be playing. All games take place Monday - Thursday, 6pm and approximately 7pm start for house league.
3. Can my child play if they are 3?
No, unfortunately SOSA (our boss) will not insure any player that is not 4 years of age during the year of play.
4. Can we make a request?
Requests are granted to sponsors of a team, and coaches who gratefully volunteer their time. No other requests will be considered.
Refunds are not given after the first week of play, unless there is a waiting list for that age group, and your child's spot is filled right away.
Registration is open until April 15th for house league. Online registration will be open longer, but ONLY for Adult League.
When you register online, you receive an email conformation. If this is lost, you will pay $20.00 to have a receipt re-issued.
8. Hearing from you Coach
Parents should receive a call from their child's coach by May 8th. Please do not contact us to enquire about your child's team until after this date.
The 2021 AGM will be held via ZOOM the last week of November. A date will be determined 4 weeks prior to the date. Volunteers are ALWAYS welcomed & encouraged. For those members of the public that would like to attend the meeting, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and you will be included in the meeting invite.
Ontario Soccer suspends indefinitely all sanctioned soccer activities in the province due to the COVID-19 pandemic
Ontario Soccer, in consultation with Canada Soccer, have been monitoring the most recent developments with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the emerging public health crisis.
Following discussions with the national governing body, input from relevant government agencies and medical experts, Ontario Soccer has made the difficult decision to immediately suspend all sanctioned soccer activities in the province until further notice.
Ontario Soccer sanctioned activities include, but not limited to, all competitions, training, coach and match official education and team building activities.
To ensure the health and safety of our players, coaches, match officials and administrators, Ontario Soccer recommends that all Districts, Clubs and Academies communicate to their members that they will cease operations indefinitely.
The offices of Ontario Soccer will be closed to the public during this period but staff will be available through email or phone to assist where necessary. The Ontario Soccer Centre will be closed to the public until further notice.
Ontario Soccer will continue following the guidelines set forth by the public health authorities, government agencies and soccer governing bodies.
Updates will be issued as appropriate and will include further details as warranted.
