Peace River Minor Soccer Association still plans to go ahead with the spring season.

While health restrictions prohibit games, COVID-19 restrictions updated April 6 do not change health orders for minor sports.

“At this point, the new restrictions will not affect our outdoor season,” association president Lorna Grainger says in an email April 8.

“Alberta Soccer Association has not changed the Return to Training Guidelines that we have been working with.”

Current guidelines limit interaction that athletes can have with each other. No games or scrimmages are allowed, everyone must be distanced from each other.

“We believe this will have the biggest impact on how the players and parents feel about the season,” Grainger says.

Parents are encouraged to complete an online survey about their interest in the revised season.

Registration to play is also available on the following link https://forms.gle/MHNg746jQfDacWY87.

More details about registration are on the association Facebook page and in an email to soccer families.

The association still needs coaches, team managers, and entrance/exit supervisors.

“We require quite a few volunteers to ensure that we are following COVID-19 guidelines,” Grainger says.

“We estimate that we will need at least 50 volunteers.”

Phone or text association manager Shawna Keddie at (780) 625-8412.
