Weyburn soccer, ball extends registration deadlines

The Weyburn Soccer Association announced on April 2 that they have extended the registration deadline and are waiving late fees for the month of April.

At this time, the indefinite suspension of all soccer activity by Canada Soccer remains in place.WSA is hopeful that there still will be a season this year, but as of right now they do not anticipate starting up play in April. The registration deadline in place beforehand was March 31, and those who registered afterwards would have to pay a late registration fee. However, the club has extended the registration date and therefore all late fees will be waived for the month of April.

The club asks that those interested in playing this year register as soon as possible so they can plan their season based on the numbers they have. Along with registering, the club is allowing people to choose to withhold payment for the time being.

“Canada Soccer has been holding regular meetings with provincial and territorial soccer organization Presidents, Executive Directors, Technical Directors and Referee Development Officers. SSA also stays in frequent communication with Sask Sport and they continue to monitor direction coming from the Saskatchewan government.

Saskatchewan Soccer at this time is still encouraging member organizations to keep moving forward with planning and developing of the 2020 spring season. Please register so our executive can have a plan in place and be ready if we are given the okay to play. If the direction is to cancel our season, Weyburn Soccer will issue a full refund on registration fees.”

Along with this the club has posted a survey on their Facebook page to help direct them on what their members would prefer going forward.

“With the future unknown as to when we can return to our normal activities, Weyburn Soccer is trying to navigate through these unprecedented times. We have decisions to make and those decisions have to be made based off current realities. We recognize that whatever our decision is, that it will not meet the needs of every WSA family, but we are hoping by sending out this survey we can make a decision based off the majority of our families responses. (These questions are for if we are delayed after our planned start date.)”

The Weyburn Minor Ball Association has also chosen to extend its registration deadline to mid-April. They ask that when registering that parents check off the “offline payment” option so that fees can be paid once it is cleared to proceed with the season. As well, no late fees will be charged and if the season is cancelled due to health and safety precautions, anyone who has registered and paid will receive a full refund.

The Weyburn Thrashers Lacrosse Club seems to still have registrations open on their website, but they are complying with the directives set out by Canadian Lacrosse Association and Saskatchewan Lacrosse Association to suspend all lacrosse activities until April 30, at which time an update on the status of the 2020 season will be provided.
