Spring Soccer Program Information

As we all look forward to the end of this historic year, we are already looking ahead to the Spring of 2021!! And the beginning of soccer again. Currently U6 and U8 will again be clinic based with instruction and games being based upon their enjoyment of the sport as well as their continued improvement. I am excited to see all of our returning little ones as well as some new players come out and enjoy our sport. The big change here I am planning is that we will not have HS kids to coach the kids as I cannot guarantee that they will be able to do it based on circumstances. Therefore, I will be asking and relying on our U6/U8 coaches to come on out and give these young ones the benefit of your knowledge (not at all required), enthusiasm and enjoyment!!

As for the older kids. I am currently looking at RBJSL for our teams. I know that we were not involved for the fall and I feel that was absolutely the correct choice. However, I also know that our kids need to be able to compete in order to improve. This is the reason for the early registration. I will have a firm and concrete close of registration on 10 JANUARY 2021 at 11:59PM. That is just under FOUR WEEKS  from today. I am also looking at a hybrid of adding some 3v3 or 4v4 competition to our season as I think that this helped our athletes skills immensely. Hopefully we can set up a new trend which will be able to help our players continue the amazing tradition of Oley Valley Soccer and take it to new heights.

AS SOMETHING NEW: I am going to open up for a U14 and U16 team as well. I was told that there would be some leagues fielding these teams and I would like to see if any of our older kids would like to play a spring season. I know that there are other sports, but hey, it can’t hurt to be given the option.

As with the fall, there are many things that are unknown at this point about the spring season. I try to be as transparent as possible and transmit the information I receive. Currently there is a possibility of a mask mandate beginning 20 January 2021 which could affect our players and their need to wear masks during games and practices. We are not sure if this will come to fruition. We are optimistic of being able to have a terrific season and I will again work hard to ensure that we are able to pull that off. 

While we will be pushing signups starting today, we will begin invoicing on 01 January 2021. We want to make sure that we have a sense of what teams will look like and any new infor prior to sending out invoices or having to do refunds. However, this also means that prompt payment will be NECESSARY in order to finalize teams and lineups. 

If there are any questions, please feel free to reach out! I welcome any questions and will answer them all so we all feel comfortable. 

Thank you very much for your time and I look forward to once again getting on the fields in just a few short months.

Sincerely

John Bertolami
