Fall 2020 Recreation Season Canceled

The Board has made the difficult decision to cancel the Fall 2020 Recreation Soccer season.

This decision was not made lightly and warranted a great deal of thought and conversation. However, with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we feel that the safety and health of players, coaches, and families that would be gathering at the fields on a nightly basis is the top priority and that it is in the community's best interest to close the program for this season. While making this decision, we took many things into consideration. We contacted surrounding programs to discuss and learn their plans. We also have been influenced by the uncertainty of other community events such as the recent cancellation of the Labor Day program by Audubon Borough and the concern surrounding the reopening of schools.

As of this time, the Travel program will continue under the guidance of South Jersey Soccer League and South Jersey Girls Soccer League. Based on the experience that Audubon Girls Softball had with their recently completed shortened season, we feel that the nature of the Travel teams will enable the teams and players to be more strictly controlled and monitored since the group is already together with existing coaches. We will continue to follow the guidance of SJSL/SJGSL as the Fall progresses.

Refunds will be issued to all families that have already paid by credit card.

We know this will come as a disappointment to many families and children and we are equally disappointed that this decision had to be made but we feel it is the responsible thing to do in order to keep the community healthy.
