Ontario Soccer - Latest Coronavirus Updates and Bulletins



June 16, 2020

Aurora FC, in consultation with our soccer governing bodies, continues to monitor ongoing developments surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic on a regular basis and is following directions from relevant governmental agencies and medical experts as the pandemic continues to unfold. We recognize these are challenging times for all of us, and we remain deeply committed to the safety of our community.

The Ontario government announced yesterday that York Region has been cleared to move into Stage 2 of the government’s plan to reopen the province, effective June 19th. As a result of this move our municipal government has begun to work towards allowing permitting of fields for in-person individual training, still within social distancing rules and guidelines

The announcement now allows Aurora FC (located in a Stage 2 region) to move into Phase 1 of the CSA/Ontario Soccer Return to Soccer Plan and start its preparation and planning  for Phase 2 of the Plan which would allow for small group training and modified games/scrimmages only allowed within the same Club.

Late last week, Ontario Soccer released the official Return to Play Plan & Guide (as approved by Canada Soccer) to all clubs in Ontario, outlining specific requirements of the 3 Phases of Return to Play. The Return to Training – Phase 1 provides for individual training, while Phase 2 implements the gradual return to group training with modified games/scrimmages. Regular competition, games and training can only be implemented when social distancing restrictions have been lifted in Phase 3 – Return to Soccer.

All member clubs and academies in the province are seeing the official Ontario Soccer Return to Play documentation for the first time and we all are going to need time to effectively interpret, develop and implement the appropriate COVID-19 safety protocols as required by Canada Soccer, Ontario Soccer, and our Federal, Provincial & Municipal governments and Public Health officials.

Aurora FC has already started the process of reviewing, the Ontario Soccer Return to Play documentation including the associated guides, tools and protocols. We anticipate the expedient development of Phase 1&2 programing (Return to Training with modified games/scrimmages) for our Recreational, Development, Competitive and High Performance outdoor programs and expect to communicate the implementation plans and strategies within the next couple of weeks (by early to mid-July). The development of the Return to Training programming will also allow us to focus on determining the practicality of the Plan for our recreational programming within the current outdoor season.

Please note that we are still hoping to run an adjusted Outdoor Season and we will notify you once we have more information about the starting date of the modified programming.  Any financial options related to an adjusted season, including refunds of registration fees, will be determined at a future date, expected to be by early to mid-July.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will provide updates for all Aurora FC activity that is impacted by the ongoing uncertainty of the unprecedented and dynamic COVID-19 situation as information from the relevant governing bodies and public health agencies becomes available.

Please stay safe and healthy.

May 11, 2020

Following the announcement from Ontario Soccer, that all sanctioned in-person soccer events and activities for the month of June have been postponed, and abiding by the directive by our local, provincial and national governmental, health, and soccer governing bodies, Aurora  FC  has delayed the start of outdoor league play and on field training for the month of June.

Please note that we are still planning to run a robust Outdoor Season and we will notify you once we have more information about the starting date.  Any financial options related to an adjusted season, including partial refunds of registration fees, will be determined at a future date. Payments for players on a payment plan are being differed to the next month.

In preparation for a quick start to a delayed season, we ask that you please assist us in our planning and encourage you to register. This will help us in creating team rosters, and assigning spots for each player. Online registration is still open for all Outdoor Programs.

In the unlikely event that the entire Outdoor Season, including all soccer training, is cancelled by our governing bodies, we expect to issue a full refund of player registration fees already paid to our club. We will also try to work with our uniform supplier to minimize costs and keep the same uniform kit style for the following season so that players are in a position to use the kit already purchased for the next season.

The current temporary suspension of sanctioned soccer events and activities are in observance of the direction of the medical and governmental authorities, which are continuing to recommend the practice of physical distancing and curbing large group gatherings.

Aurora FC, in consultation with our soccer governing bodies, continues to monitor ongoing developments surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and is following directions from relevant governmental agencies and medical experts on a regular basis as the pandemic continues to unfold. We recognize these are challenging times for all of us, and we remain deeply committed to the safety of our community.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will provide updates for all Aurora FC activity that is impacted by the ongoing uncertainty of the unprecedented and dynamic COVID-19 situation as information from the relevant governing bodies and public health agencies becomes available.

Please stay safe and healthy.
