POSTED 8/3: Please take a moment to complete the return to play survey at the link below to help our board of directors in their decision making for fall 2020.
May 5, 2020
During this very difficult time we are thinking about all of you, our players, families and friends. The Board of Commissioners met (remotely of course) to discuss the 2020 Spring Competitive and Recreational Season. With the current restrictions on being outside and the threat of COVID-19 still being prevalent, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the Spring Recreational and Competitive programs.
We are working closely with Soccer Office to issue the refunds for the season in a timely manner. Every family will receive a refund that is $6 less than the registration fee paid per registrant. The refunds will be processed on Monday, April 27 and funds will deposit back to the original payment source (credit card, bank account, etc.) within 3 to 5 days. Please note the reduced refund amount takes into account expenses that the club already incurred during the planning stage of the Spring season.
The safety of our players, referees, volunteers and spectators is our main priority. As much as we want to be on the fields running around and coaching the sport we all love, it is just not socially responsible.
We are incredibly grateful to our families with essential workers at this time. Thank you for working tirelessly during this pandemic to serve others. You are all very appreciated and we would like to honor you. If you are an essential worker, please send me an e-mail with your name, profession and your place of employment (send a picture as well). I would like to recognize all of you in one of our future e-mails.
In addition, the Homewood Flossmoor Soccer Club will continue to post training videos on our social media page. Looking ahead we have a few fun things in mind and would love for you to join us! Facebook: HF Soccer Club
Once it has been determined to be safe, we hope to get everyone back on the soccer fields to do what they do best and truly enjoy. The safety of our players is our number 1 priority and we will follow all guidelines and recommendation established by the CDC, the IL Department of Public Health, US Soccer and IYSA.
If you have any questions, please contact me.
