MESSAGE FROM YARMOUTH CLIPPERS FOOTBALL CLUB - June 23rd 2020

SEASON CANCELLED FOR THE SUMMER OF 2020

Dear parents, guardian and players,

After much thought and consideration, the Board of Directors has decided that the Yarmouth Clippers Football Club is not able to provide any instructional soccer for any age group this summer as a result of COVID-19. Soccer Canada, Soccer Nova Scotia and the Province had already made the decision that there would be no game play this summer. The requirements to be certified for back to field instructional  sessions, the on-going requirements to maintain that status and the real concern for players health and safety has lead us to make this tough decision. While every board member is committed to the game of soccer and wants nothing more to see it take place, grow and flourish in Yarmouth County, we are not able to provide active play in a meaningful way.

This is not a decision that the board took lightly and it deliberated for some time on our possible way forward while awaiting additional loosening of restrictions by NS Public Health and the Province. Unfortunately, we are not able to make it work.

As we look forward to a 2021 soccer season, please look for online challenges and activities for players to participate in on their own, at their homes or in safe groups as per Public Health. We hope to be able to still provide skill development and fun challenges. There may also be some great prizes up for grabs.

We thank you all for your patience and understanding.

Board of Directors – Yarmouth Clippers Football Club.
