SPRING UPDATE - JUNE 3, 2020

Dear members of NDFC,

We trust you are all keeping healthy and practicing your safe distancing.

As a follow up to our last update on May 15th, we have been receiving information daily from the Cascadia Soccer League, BC Soccer, ViaSport, and the City of Delta.  NDFC is currently working on a Safe Soccer plan and once we receive the official guidelines from BC Soccer, we will be ready to implement those plans. We expect to be able to share this information in the next 7-10 days.

 

We continue to thank you for your support and the work you are all doing in your organizations and communities.

 

Keep well and stay positive.

SPRING UPDATE - MAY 17, 2020

Dear members of NDFC,

We trust you are all keeping healthy and practicing your safe distancing.

As a follow up to our last update on April 20th, we wanted to share with you further information on the spring soccer season.

We remain in contact with Cascadia Soccer League and continue to monitor the latest updates from BC Soccer. NDFC is under the direction of BC Soccer and they are in process of developing a Return to Play Phase1 Plan. This is contingent on the authorization from the BC Health Authority to start structured play. If we are given the go ahead to proceed by the Cascadia appointed deadline of June 30th, we will be prepared to start our soccer season. Age groups not participating in Cascadia will be presented with a working plan based on the above authorization and the same deadline date of June 30th.

 

If BC Soccer does not receive approval to start regular soccer activities (including games and scrimmages), NDFC is working on an alternative “safe play” program for our members. BC Soccer is working with the BC Health Authority to determine which parameters would be required to classify as safe play and safe distancing for sport, and NDFC will comply with these directions. Once we are authorized to proceed, we will share the details of the program with the membership.

 

Going forward, as the situation in BC is changing daily, we will be issuing weekly updates about spring and fall. We have also compiled an FAQ list (see link below) to assist in any questions you may have regarding the spring and fall soccer seasons.

 

We want to emphasize that throughout this period we have been taking direction from BC Soccer and abiding by their recommendations with respect to any closures, suspensions, postponements, and cancellations. We also are obligated to work under the rules and regulations of the City of Delta regarding the use of Delta fields. At this time, even though the local fields are open to community members, there is to be no organized soccer of any kind on the fields. NDFC supports that decision and we expect our coaches and membership to adhere to that policy.

As we navigate our way through the COVID-19 pandemic, there is optimism that we can return to the fields in some form sooner than later and have our sons and daughters playing the beautiful game of soccer.

Closing Comments & Extension of Suspension from BC Soccer

We understand that everyone wants to get back on the fields and play the sport we all love; BC Soccer wants to as well. However, we must do so in the most responsible way possible. We also want to ensure that our members, affiliated clubs, and the volunteer (and paid) individuals that lead them are aware of the potential risks with decisions they make.

Until we hear back from Via Sport and Canada Soccer, which we hope will be soon, we, unfortunately, need to extend the suspension of soccer activity in the short term.

We continue to thank you for your support and the work you are all doing in your organizations and communities.

 

Keep well and stay positive.

Spring Update - April 22, 2020

Dear members of NDFC:

 

First and foremost, we hope that you are all keeping healthy and safe, and like all of us, doing your part to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

We would like to provide you with an update on a couple of important soccer-related items, the first being the status of the spring soccer season.

 

As you may be aware, much of our spring league involvement (Girls U10+ and Boys U8+) is managed by Cascadia Soccer League.  NDFC has been in continuous contact with Cascadia, receiving regular updates from them, and actively participating in ongoing discussion and planning.  Cascadia is currently working on planning a modified spring season. Various different scenarios have been proposed and discussed, with the start of the season being the week of July 13th, at the latest, and a final go/no decision by June 30th.  We will keep in continual contact with Cascadia, and remain committed to providing you with an update as soon as we have confirmation on a potential start date or any other significant developments to share.  Our goal is to be ready to deliver a spring program to you as soon as we get the green light from BC Soccer; hopefully sooner rather than later!

 

For those groups not managed by Cascadia, which includes U6 to U9 Girls, U6 and U7 Boys, the Girls/Boys Intro Program (U5/U6), and the Academy Program, NDFC will be following a similar approach and timeline as above. We are carefully considering options and plans for a modified spring season, including extending the season into summer.

 

We want to emphasize that throughout this period, we have been taking direction from BC Soccer, and abiding by their recommendations with respect to any closures, suspensions, postponements, and cancellations.  NDFC remains optimistic that we will be able to play Spring soccer, and we are working hard to ensure that we are prepared for that possibility.  We are also very aware of the current state of affairs, and we are prepared to take action should the entirety of the Spring season be affected.  Should you have any individual concerns to discuss with us, please let us know, and we will do our best to address them.

 

The second item that we wish to update you on is with respect to North Delta Football Club (NDFC). 

 

As of April 2nd, 2020, we are now officially operating as one club, under the NDFC brand.  The elected Board of Directors and our dedicated staff have been working diligently to iron out the remaining details of the amalgamation of NDSC and Sur-Del, and are now very much involved in setting the structure and processes for NDFC, both in the near-term and for the future. 

 

We are eagerly anticipating sharing some exciting announcements in the near future, so please keep us in mind, and keep an eye on your email and social media feeds!

 

Sincerely,

 

NORTH DELTA FOOTBALL CLUB
