Spring 2021 Season Canceled

Parents and Players, Due to many factors surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic the Lakewood Soccer Club board has made the difficult decision to cancel our Spring 2021 season.  We understand this may come at a big disappointment to many of the children that look forward to playing every year and we would like to convey that this decision was not made lightly.  The board feels that the confusion surrounding the ever-changing rules put forth by the state combined with the strict social distancing and safety measures required to play may not be advantageous to a fun and productive season for the players. 

This past fall we started the season because we thought there was a clear and concise plan put in place based on the various "phases" the governor and her staff put in place.  We were quickly proven wrong as mandates came down requiring limits of participants, masks during practice, and many other rules that had to be followed to keep playing. 

As we approach the spring season things seem to be even more fluid than they were last fall.  Mandates seem to change monthly.  Each one of these changes need to be analyzed, implemented, and communicated to the whole league.  During the season this can mean close to a hundred players, parents, spectators, and coaches must be contacted and the new directives clearly communicated.  This is a huge undertaking.  In addition, if we are caught not following the rules we can face sanctions by the league or the state.  Taking all this into account it was a unanimous decision by the attending members that for the good of the league we cancel the season. 

Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you this fall.  If you have any questions please use the following email addresses to contact us:
