Dear Soccer Families,

We find ourselves in very uncertain times. Communities across Canada are facing tremendous changes and families are doing their best to cope with the situation. Westlock Soccer is committed to the health and safety of our players and their families. We have been closely following the recommendations set forth by the Government of Alberta, Canada Soccer and Alberta Soccer to guide our decision making. It is with regret that Westlock Soccer must announce the CANCELLATION OF THE 2020 OUTDOOR SOCCER SEASON.

We understand that some families may be facing financial hardships and rather than hold fees for the next season, we will be refunding all paid fees in the most efficient manner possible. Our treasurer is working with our bank to process refunds as soon as possible. If you have registered your child and have PAID your fees, you will be refunded and the registration will be cancelled for the 2020 season. If you HAVE NOT paid your fees, your registration for 2020 will simply be cancelled.

Westlock Soccer is committed to providing opportunities for physical activity for families in Westlock and the surrounding areas. We are passionate about healthy families and will monitor the situation until we can get our programs up and running again. In the meantime, keep active together! There are many great ways to keep your soccer skills sharp at home! YouTube has some fantastic resources if you enter “soccer practise at home”. Also, the following resources have some excellent ideas to keep active at home during this time of isolation.
