Summer Program – Week 2 Updates!

We’re looking forward to another great week of soccer.

Remember that we’re all in this together, and continuing to follow the current health and safety guidelines (full details on our website) is what continues to make this all possible. Based on last week, we’re doing great, so let’s keep it up!

There is still plenty of space for interested players, so please sign up here:

Here are a few updates for you all:

#1 – Just a reminder that if for any reason you’re feeling uncomfortable – Stay Home. And if you’re already there playing, please feel comfortable leaving. We want you all there, yes, but most importantly, we want people to do what is right for them.

#2 – Effective July 1, we can have up to 75 spectators at events (provided they effectively distance), which is part of the reason we’ve scheduled friendly matches. That said, I’ll continue to discourage people from hanging around at our training sessions. For all the things Morse Park is great for (the fields, the views, the nice walking path), it’s not great for sitting and watching training sessions or games. With few exceptions, people watching are effectively either on the playing field or blocking part of the walking path.

#3 – Please please please don’t park on Pond Rd. We’re going to be able to open some parking in the Morse Park lot, including some overflow parking, so this should alleviate some of the parking challenges.

#4 – If your player is showing any signs of respiratory illness, or you believe they may have had exposure to COVID19, keep them home and notify me. This is important.

#5 – Drops offs should go much more quickly this week and moving forward. The biggest hold up last week was ensuring the health forms were signed. Going forward, if I need a health form signed I will reach out to you individually.
Players are able to self certify their health when they arrive, so we’re at what is a close to a normal drop off protocol. players do have to continue to wear masks to and from the car, since they’re potentially interacting with everyone.

#6 – We’ve got friendly games set up for this coming Sunday, July 5 for most of the groups. I sent more detailed information on times and locations in an email this past Saturday morning. I’ve gotten a great response so far, but keep those responses coming if you want to play but haven’t emailed me back yet.

See you out there!

Addison United SC – Season Update!

3/31/2020

Hi Everyone,

Big thanks to those of you who have sent videos and tagged us in your own Insta and Facebook soccer posts!  Keep them coming!

I wanted to give you a quick update on the season.

We’re still planning on having it!
(but on a delay)

Based on the current guidelines, we are unable to do any group activities, including practices, until May 1.  We hope we will be able to get outside and play that first weekend in May.

We do have some substantial updates to the schedule though.

For the U12 & older teams:
We will not be playing in the Saratoga May Day Kick-Off tournament on May 2-3.
The VSL will not start as planned in May.
With the uncertainty, the VSA is up in the air about what that might look like.
The high likelihood is that our “league play” will be in June & July, and maybe into August.
We are still planning to go to Green Mountain Challenge in Manchester in late June.

For ACSL (U8 & U10 groups):
We are still planning to move forward with our 6-8 week schedule, starting as soon as we can get outside.
Once we know for sure what that looks like, I will be in touch with details.

Please keep an eye on your email and our AUSC social media channels as we’ve got some fun stuff planned for these outlets.

We’re still looking forward to a great season, and will keep everyone up to date on the schedule as much as possible, and as soon as we have updates.

If, based on the current uncertainty surrounding everything from a schedule perspective, you are no longer interested in Addison United soccer this spring/summer, please get in touch.

One last important note.
We were recently notified by the VSA that a U16 boys player from one of the Chittenden County clubs that was playing futsal has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
He is doing fine, and currently not at risk for serious complications, but is being quarantined in his home. He wanted to pass on to everyone, particularly his peer players, that it is a big deal and anyone can get it or pass it on to others even if they don’t feel sick, so he asks that everyone stay out of public places and stay home. (If you have any questions about this, please get in touch)

Stay safe, stay healthy.
We’ll get through this together!

Hope to see you all May 1 or soon thereafter!

Chris
