GREATER GRAND FORKS RECREATIONAL SOCCER

 

Welcome to the Greater Grand Forks Soccer Club (GGFSC) Recreational Soccer program. This program is for boys and girls in preschool through 6th grade and takes place in both the spring and fall. Games are at Bringewatt and Scheels Parks and practices take place at various parks throughout the city. Hundreds of athletes take advantage of this fast-paced, fun activity and many go on to join our competitive and winter indoor programs. The rec program goals are to have fun and promote good sportsmanship, fair play, and love for the game. As such, we do not emphasize the results of the game, but prioritize development of skills and abilities. 

Here are some changes that were to be in place for spring, but we'd like you to remind you they will be in effect for the Fall 2020 session (some changes due to space needed for COVID precautions - see the section below this):

 

SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING COVID-19

SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING COVID-19

Hello GGFSC families,

As you know, it’s been an unusual year and while we want to provide an opportunity for kids to enjoy the game, there are some measures in place to do this in the safest manner possible. 


To help mitigate the spread of COVID, we will ask players, parents, and coaches to follow physical-distancing norms as much as the game allows. Spectators should wear masks as they are able. We also ask that anybody who displays symptoms of COVID or similar illnesses to not attend any GGFSC activities until cleared by a medical professional. If a player or coach receives a positive result for a COVID test and has been in recent, close contact with other players or coaches, we ask that you notify the club immediately. We ask the same for any players exposed to a positive household contact. In these cases, the player will be excused for the season and will receive a refund per the schedule below. Schedules and rosters may be adjusted if this impacts a team's ability to take the field. 


We have adjusted the schedule and fields to maximize distance between each team’s technical area as well as the space provided for spectators. Team roster sizes and registration numbers have been capped to accommodate these limitations. Caps are based on registration history and may be adjusted as incoming numbers warrant (for example - if we have a large waiting list for kindergarten, and low numbers for preschool, we may shift slots from P to K). Registration is first-come, first serve. More player-specific guidelines will be issued to coaches prior to first practices. 


For the safety of our players, GGFSC will monitor national, state, and local guidance and make adjustments to the program as conditions warrant. This could include schedule changes or outright cancellation of the program. 


If conditions are such that GGFSC terminates the season early, refund checks will be issued according to the following schedule (note $3 registration processing fee is not refundable in any way and is not included in this schedule):


100% refund if season is cancelled prior to first practice

75% refund if season is cancelled after first practice, but prior to first game

50% refund if season is cancelled after first game, but prior to 9/19

No refund if season is cancelled after 9/19 games have been played


This refund schedule is non-inclusive of weather cancellations or postponements - those will not affect this schedule.


As usual, refunds for personal cancellations will not be issued after first practice has taken place.


COVID MITIGATION MEASURES


 

Here are some COVID mitigation strategies that we are employing this season. Please keep in mind these are temporary measures and are in the best interest of the players, spectators, coaches, and referees. The kids will understand, given the circumstances. The key is being flexible, patient, and safety-oriented.

  • Players should not share water bottles

  • Teams should not huddle close during practice or games

  • Team pinnies will not be distributed this season except one pinnie for goalkeepers from 2nd-6th grade

  • Handshakes, fist bumps, and high-fives won't happen this year. Teach your players to do an "air" five. fist bump, or whatever. This includes after-game celebrations.

  • Handwashing is important, especially if soccer balls have been handled and shared. Avoiding touching your facial area.

  • Families should provide their own players halftime/end-game snacks this year. 

  • Coaches and spectators are recommended to wear masks, especially in close quarters with players and other spectators. Try to maintain physical distancing as much as possible

  • Please do not congregate in the park after practices or games, especially on Saturdays as we will often have another group coming in. 

  • If an opposing team has no substitutes or doesn't have enough players to fill every position, please do the courtesy of loaning players to the other team for that game (can rotate) if you have substitutes to spare. Alternately, you can play up to one player per side less than the recommended. This may be more needed this year than years prior.

  • Keep in mind schedules and policies may change if conditions warrant.

  • We will take cues from other agencies as to whether further mitigation strategies, up to and including suspension,or cancellation of the season are appropriate


Additionally, if any of the following apply to you DO NOT COME TO SOCCER ACTIVITIES and please notify your coach of your plans:

  • If you or any close contacts are exhibiting any COVID or flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, etc) as listed by the CDC

  • If you or any close contacts have tested positive for COVID and you/they have not been cleared as recovered by medical professionals or CDC guidelines

  • If you or any close contacts have been asked to quarantine

  • If you are considered high-risk we highly recommend you not attend 


Lastly, if you have tested positive for COVID and have been in close contact with your team during the nominal incubation/contagious period, please do the additional courtesy of notifying the club as soon as possible. This is so we can prepare mitigation strategies, rescheduling, etc.
