I hope everyone is staying home safe during this difficult time. I, along with the our Board of Directors, would like to assure you that we are dedicated and committed to the well-being and safety of our Members and Staff and I am sure we will all come out of this experience stronger as individuals and as a community.
ISC is currently in discussions with our governing bodies; the City of Mississauga and the Ontario Soccer, and is abiding by the input we get from relevant government agencies, and medical experts, to determine when it is safe to resume all sanctioned activities. ISC is currently suspending all its indoor fall and winter scheduled programs as of March 16th until further notice.
While we continue to prepare for the upcoming season, things continue to change on a daily basis. ISC continues to work with all of our partners and governing bodies on what’s to come and will keep you all updated by email, by posts on our social media and on our website.
The ISC Summer Program is scheduled to proceed and pre-season preparations are continuing in the normal course. Families wishing to participate in the Summer Programs, that have not yet registered, may continue to register to reserve their spot.
I would like to encourage everyone, especially our youth, to be leaders and keep a safe distance from each other. Let’s wash our hands with soap and avoid touching our faces. If we all do our part for the next few weeks, I believe the worst will be behind us soon. lets work together as a team; One World, One Game, One Club.
Please note that the Clubhouse will remain closed to the public. Staff will continue operating by email only for now. Visitors will not be allowed to enter the Clubhouse until further notice.
Once again, on behalf of our Board of Directors and staff, please stay safe. Board of Directors, International Soccer Club. March 16th 2020.
Dear ISC Families, The Club is closed as of March 15th with no staff . The City and Ontario Soccer are the governing bodies who decide on whether all sanctioned Clubs shall conduct a Summer Soccer Program this season.
Please note that since March 15th 2020, ISC has not processed or accepted any Registrations for any of its Summer Programs. Once the City of Mississauga and Ontario Soccer decide to open the facilities for all sanctioned clubs to run a Summer Program, ISC shall accept new Registrations.
Therefore, and as things are changing every day, we need to wait until a final decision is made. Once the governing bodies make a final decision, ISC shall notify all members. If the season proceed in the Summer, ISC shall accept new registrations and shall notify all registered members with the Summer Schedule. If the program is cancelled, ISC shall contact all registered members and proceed with the reimbursement process for their summer registration fees.
Please note that the City has all its facilities closed since March 13th and up until July 5th for now with the possibility to extend if needed. As a result Ontario Soccer is tentatively planning to resume the training and the league on July 5th. These updates are changing regularly and will keep everyone updated as we go. If the program is not going to proceed, a corporate decision will be made in accordance with our governing bodies for all youth soccer club in the Province to follow in how we shall reimburse all members the fees. All in accordance with our refund policy. All options are currently on the table for discussion and once the decision is made across the Province, we shall follow.
We are in regular talks with the City and Ontario soccer and we have weekly discussions on how/if to proceed based on health Canada updates. Rest assured we will not put anyone at risk. No one is at a position to make any decisions now on whether there shall be a summer season. ISC is a not for profit group based on volunteers and we are affiliate with the City to serve the community. Please be patient. Kindly stay the course and maintain social distancing and help the Province come out of this pandemic. Please follow us on Instagram, Facebook and twitter as well as updates on our website. Board of Directors, International Soccer Club. April 3rd 2020
Dear ISC Families, The City is scheduled to open its facilities for the League beginning of July as part of stage three of opening the City subject to the final approval of the health officials. As a result the League is scheduled to start the 2nd week of July and will continue until the 2nd week of September. The initial schedule was from May 24 To August 14 with two full weeks off for the long weekends (July long weekend week and August long weekend week) giving total of 10 sessions. We will provide the 10 sessions from 2nd week of July until 2nd week of September by offering two sessions in two of the weeks. Trophies will be given at end of season as usual. Once we get the final go-ahead from the City the coaches will be in contact with all the parents to meet for uniform pickup and the start date of the season. Please stay tuned for our regular Newsletter emails we send every month. We are closely following all information from the Governing bodies and the Health officials. We will amend the operations of our programs as necessary in order to keep staff and participants safe. Please check your junk mail folder or email the club to update your email address. Thank you for your patience please stay safe and keep the kids and everyone safe. May 2nd 2020.
First and foremost, the staff and Board of the International Soccer Club hopes that all members and their families are well and safe. While being away from family, friends and the activities we love is hard, it’s important that we all do whatever we can to keep ourselves and each other safe during this time. At this time, ISC’s Board and Staff continue to work diligently to provide solutions for this ever-changing and completely unprecedented situation. At this time, all ISC programs remain suspended. Due to the current circumstances and based on the Directive from Ontario soccer, ISC has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Summer program until Ontario Soccer Return to play Restrictions are lifted. Ontario Soccer, Districts and Clubs are still working to develop Return to Training/Play plans that facilitate a safe return to the field. As of now Ontario Soccer has submitted their Return to Play plan to Canada Soccer. Canada Soccer and government officials will work together until an agreed upon plan is in place, at which point we will await a decision from the government regarding when youth sports are permitted to resume without any restrictions. While it is deeply disappointing that we will not be able to enjoy the sport of soccer together as soon as we would like, please be reminded that the Club is still here to support you, our valued membership. We will continue to share resources to allow you to fine-tune your skills until we can play the beautiful game together again. ISC’s Staff and Board of Directors will continue our efforts to provide a positive soccer experience now and well into the future. We will get through this difficult time as a Club and a community. Please visit us on our website and on our social media pages for activities, information, games and more. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact info@Internationalsoccerclub.ca
Thank you again for your continued support of the International Soccer Club, and your understanding and patience during this uncertain time. We are confident that we will get through this together and we look forward to seeing you all on the field again soon! Stay well and safe.
