The final score is 1-0 for COVID19 vs 2020 Soccer
You may have heard that The City of Calgary has recently cancelled all playing field permits through June 30th. This means that we will need to cancel our 2020 community soccer program.
Thank you to everyone that volunteered to coach or manage a team, to help with equipment, or in one of the many other roles. I know that we were all very much looking forward to getting out, enjoying some Spring weather, spending time with friends and neighbours, and most of all letting the kids run off some energy.
We are working with our registration and third-party payment processor and will be able to automatically refund your soccer registration (minus the processing costs) to the credit card that was used when you registered. It will likely be end of of next week before we can process these, and then another 7-10 days for the refund to show up on your statements. I greatly appreciate your patience and understanding while we process 900+ refunds.
You may remember that you also paid a $25 TCA when you signed up. This fee helps cover administrative costs and as well as support other community initiatives and programming that the Community Association provides including the Harvest Festival, Youth Council, Community Garden, and more.
The CA is volunteer run non-profit society and the loss of soccer revenue this year will be challenging for us; being able to retain the membership fees would help substantially. We know that many families in Tuscany are also going through challenging times so if you would like a refund of your $25 membership (less processing fees) please let me know.
We are disappointed and frustrated that the kids will not have a chance to play community soccer this year, and we also recognize that this move by the City is necessary to protect the health and safety of all Calgarians.
Thanks again for your patience and understanding, I hope to see you for the 2021 season.
