Return to Play Guidelines

 

                                                                  MISSION STATEMENT

Our young players have a low risk of infection from COVID-19. However, every case, young or old, is a threat to individuals and the communities they live in.  Without a vaccine for COVID-19 it will be difficult to eradicate risk infection. Our Guidelines and Protocols must reflect those realities as we look to Return to Play.

Given the restrictions due to COVID-19, we have decided not to offer soccer sessions to our Under 4 micro age group.

Southern Shore are pleased to continue our partnership with Tim Hortons TimBits Soccer Program. Micro Players U5-U7 will  receive a complete set of jersey, shorts and socks and ball as part of their registration.  

All our lives and regular routines have been altered by COVID-19. Physical activity is a big part of a return to normalcy. We hope you will join us as we return to the beautiful game.
