Letter to Parents: PHWM Soccer 2020 Fall recreation soccer program to run

Hello,

You are receiving this email because you have registered for PHWM Soccer fall program on an age group wait list. The wait list was used to ensure there was not payment until a decision to run the fall soccer program was confirmed. Please read all of this message!

PHWM Soccer will run a fall recreation soccer program. The participants will be those who have registered on an age group wait list between 7/12/20 and 8/3/2020. Selected age groups may have registration opened to increase the number of participants to fill a set number of teams, this will be limited and announced separately.  Registration for the Fall program will be less half the normal number in the PHWM Soccer fall program ( 1200 vs ~550). No child may participate in the PHWM Soccer fall program without registering and the parent agreeing to the Baltimore County COVID Waiver ( during registration ).

All current wait list registrations will be released from the wait lists on Monday 8/17. A message will be sent to the email address listed in the registrants' owner account stating an order has been created and to sign in to your account completing registration payment. Please make payment or cancel the order within 5 days of receiving the email notice.


PHWM Soccer is a volunteer organization. To have a Fall recreation soccer program will require the support of families participating in the program to follow the COVID-19 guidelines, rules and preventative requirements to stop the spread of the coronavirus as best as possible. Baltimore County Parks and Recreation could cancel the program if guidelines are not followed. Details are below and will be posted to the PHWM Soccer websites.


Parents: if you and your child(ren) will not commit to the preventive requirements please cancel your order for the fall soccer program!! PHWM Soccer administrator will remove children/parents, from the fall program, who will not follow the guidelines.



PHWM Soccer will purchase washable face masks for all volunteer coaches,  team mangers and all players.  Additional face masks may be available for purchase, process to be determined.


Thank you to the parents that have registered to volunteer to coach and be team managers. PHWM Soccer recognizes this will not be the normal coaching experience with the Covid-19 guidelines.
