Dear East Side Sports Soccer Families:
I am pleased to announce that East Side Sports is planning to convene its fall soccer program—assuming there are no significant changes in the next few weeks.
Registration is NOW OPEN on-line, or you can download a paper registration and mail it in. There is a lot of information on the website at: www.eastsidesports.net, including registration info and links. Or, you can go directly to the registration webpage at Playerspace.com and register and pay on line at: https://eastsidesports.playerspace.com/register/index_registration.cfm?wizard_action=choose&league=1634.
Our projected opening day is Sunday, September 13, so please pardon our delay (as we waited as long as possible to assess the COVID situation), and please register soon—thank you.
While our hope was to continue to conduct the program at the Wheeler Farm, but that was not possible due to “travel restrictions” for Rhode Islanders going into Massachusetts. Therefore, we have a contingency plan to hold it at Providence Country Day in East Providence. Games will continue to be on Sunday afternoons, between 12:30 and 4:30.
Safety changes include:
Staggered start times for each division
Larger spacing of fields
Significantly reduced “social” opportunities
No group snacks, drinks, after game get togethers, etc.
Practices before the games on Sunday—NO Saturday practices (or social/play times) ☹
Required masks for coaches and spectators,
Appropriate and structured social distancing
Reduced contact of all types
So, please register for the program on-line or by mail ASAP—remember, we still need volunteer coaches at every level. (But the good news is that there are no practices during the week, so this is a minimal commitment of time.)
There are no late fees, so the rates remain the same as last year’s Early Bird rates!
We will continue to keep you informed as we look forward to providing this fun activity for your children in a safe and healthy manner.
