To our club members and our community

These are difficult times as together we face the fear and uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We want to reassure everyone that the Greater Fort Erie Youth Soccer Club is taking every precaution possible to keep our club members, staff, and by extension our community, safe and healthy.

During this time, we will be relying on the direction of our government, Soccer Canada, Ontario Soccer and the Niagara Soccer Association to direct us on when it is safe to resume soccer activities.

Click here to read the following message that Ontario Soccer sent out to all members on March 12, 2020.

This message has also been posted on our homepage for all of our members to read.

The Greater Fort Erie Youth Soccer Club is in full support of the mandate to cease all sanctioned soccer events to all our members, this includes:

  • All office hours are cancelled effective immediately.
  • All In-House Registration Dates have been cancelled. We will schedule one more when soccer activities are able to resume.
  • The late registration date will be moved from March 31 to April 30.
  • All travel tryouts and other team activities have been cancelled until further notice.

Member training courses that were scheduled for March will be postponed. April, May and beyond will be monitored and members notified of any cancellations as soon as possible.

For any urgent issues, please email our office administrator Ginette at: administrator@forteriesoccer.com

The Greater Fort Erie Youth Soccer Club will closely monitor the Ontario Soccer directive as well as any direction given by the Niagara Soccer Association over the coming days and weeks to ensure communication is first and foremost to keep all members along with their families informed of events as quickly as possible.

OSA AddressOntario Soccer, in consultation with Canada Soccer, have been monitoring the most recent developments with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the emerging public health crisis.

Following discussions with the national governing body, input from relevant government agencies and medical experts, Ontario Soccer has made the difficult decisionto immediately suspend all sanctioned soccer activities in the province until further notice.

Ontario Soccer sanctioned activities include, but not limited to, all competitions, training, coach and match official education and team building activities.  

To ensure the health and safety of our players, coaches, match officials and administrators, Ontario Soccer recommends that all Districts, Clubs and Academies communicate to their members that they will cease operations indefinitely.

The offices of Ontario Soccer will be closed to the public during this period but staff will be available through email or phone to assist where necessary. The Ontario Soccer Centre will be closed to the public until further notice.

Ontario Soccer will continue following the guidelines set forth by the public health authorities, government agencies and soccer governing bodies.
