COVID 19 Update

Executive members continue to follow and monitor the current COVID-19 situation as it  unfolds so  we may be on top of any actions VSA is required to take.

Here is the newest information:

  1. Dr. Hinshaw -Alberta Medical Executive Officer of Health released April 23 & 24, 2020 in her statement that all summer events will be cancelled in order to help in the battle against COVID-19 and help flatten the curve.

    1. This is now a ministerial order and directive that has been issued to all Albertans.

    2. With that being said and the directive effectively in place - VSA has no other option than to cancel the 2020 Outdoor Season.

  2. VSA will issue full refunds of registration fees and bonds.  VSA will be in touch directly with families regarding the return of cash funds and make arrangements.  

    1. Families who made payment with cheques- these cheques will be shredded to reduce the cost and risks associated with mailing the returns.  It is suggested that you note these cheques as cancelled/stop payment.   If you are so inclined you may contact your financial institution. 

  3. A reminder the Vermilion Provincial Park remains closed to vehicles and park usage as per order of the Government of Alberta and will remain for the summer months.  There is no access to the soccer fields at this time.   

  4. VSA will continue to share and support player challenges and skill development opportunities from home for  those interested through Facebook/VSA Website.  Alberta Soccer Association (ASA) will have information about player challenges and development opportunities to do from home - check out their website https://albertasoccer.com/ 

  5. If you are a VSA coach and want to continue your learning and skill development - check out the ASA website as they will be offering online courses and learning opportunities for free https://albertasoccer.com/.  

  6. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to any member of the VSA Executive or send your email to Vermilion Soccer - all contact information may be found on our website.

Thank you for your patience and we hope to see you all back in the 2021 Outdoor Season,

VSA Executive
