I’ve got a challenge for you!

I hope everyone is staying home, keeping their distance, and staying safe and healthy.

As a club our top priority right now is community health, and we’re following the most current and up to date guidelines on what that looks like.
As you may have heard, the Vermont Soccer Association has extended the suspension of soccer here in Vermont until April 15th.

I do realize this leaves the big question – “What’s going to happen with this season?”

Right now, we’re continuing to prepare for a great spring that starts at about the same time as it usually starts for us as we get out onto the fields in mid-April.
The coaches and managers will keep you up to speed on scheduling as it relates directly to your team.

Of course this can change at a moment’s notice. And if it does we will let you know.

In the meantime, get outdoors and get on the ball!
And if it’s cold and you’re stuck inside, use one of those extra rolls of toilet paper for juggling like the pros are doing for their #stayathomechallenge videos.

My challenge to you all is a simple one – just get on the ball!
No matter what you’re doing, take a quick video of it, and let’s get it out there for the world to see.
To get it to me, you can text or email.
Or better yet, since you all follow us on Insta or FB, post it there and tag Addison United.
It doesn’t matter what it is, just show us your best stuff!

Here is my favorite YouTube channel for individual ball work videos, called Fast Feet Home Soccer Workouts.

Lets see those moves!

May Day Classic 2020, 5/1-3, room reservations

The Saratoga May Day Tournament, like the rest of our spring program, falls outside the current closure window for all the things that are closed/canceled at the moment, so we are proceeding as usual on preparations. As you know, everything has been happening rapidly and changing daily, and we are doing our best to stay on top of it. As we get further guidelines or direction, we will make alterations to our plans as needed. For now, we request that you please book your rooms as soon as possible to ensure you get a room in the block with your team.

Please see the information below with the link to make your room reservation. At this time, since we do not know the schedule, so you should book your room for Friday and Saturday night (5/1-5/3). Disregard the cancellation policy. No one will get penalized based on timing if they’re following whatever the most current and appropriate guidelines are for COVID19. There is an Extenuating Circumstances Policy for travel in place and you will receive a full refund if the event is canceled.

Outside of losing the last couple of weeks of training indoors, we are preparing for a successful spring season that starts on time and goes off without a hitch. We don’t know what the plan for the Futsal schedule is at this point but will let you know as soon as we do.

If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch with Chris George directly: director@addisonunitedvt.com.

Stay happy and healthy!
