Let me start off with thank you to all the front-line workers as we all work together to get through the Covid-19 pandemic that has affected not only our club but also the people of Canada and the world.
Whether you are a part of health care or a first responder; work in the grocery stores or restaurants; if you are a trucker, gas station attendant, a volunteer or helping in any way during this time of need:
As I had mentioned in my previous announcement, the Canadian Soccer Assn and the BC Soccer Assn have suspended all sanctioned soccer related activities until further notice. We at ASA suspended all of our spring soccer related programs until further notice, in accordance with our governing bodies. At the time, this was not a cancellation, just a postponement.
Given the ongoing world situation and the continued suspension of activities by our governing bodies, we at the Abbotsford Soccer Association have made the difficult decision to cancel our Spring Programs.
In accordance with our Refund Policy, you have two options.
- Full refund as the program has been cancelled.
- Apply your spring fees towards your Fall/Winter programs
Connect with Diane at email@example.com to let her know how you’d like your registration dealt with.
Please keep in mind, if you go with option 1, we only have our Office Manager, Diane Turner, with the ability to fulfill your request for a refund. To say she will be extremely busy over the coming days is an understatement. As well, we are only allowed to refund so much per day, per bank policy, so it may take some time for your refund request to be completed.
It would help us a great deal as a club if you were able to go with option 2 and have your fees applied to the Fall/Winter programs. It not only saves Diane a great deal of time, it also saves the club extra transfer fees that come with each transaction. Our Fall/Winter programming will be open for registration shortly. Please watch our website and social media for details.
Thank you all for your patience and understanding in these trying times. If anything changes in the near future, and we are able to get back onto the field, we will be sure to notify you.
Take care and stay safe
Abbotsford Soccer Assn
