June 24th - With the Province of Ontario transitioning to Step 2 as part of the government’s re-opening plan, competitive sports and league play can now resume! Effective 1201am, Wednesday, June 30th, competitive play can take place which means teams can practice together (no longer training in groups of 10 etc) to prepare for the Summer 2021 season which will start the following week. Social distancing is still in effect as are the various aspects of the Oakridge Soccer Club’s Return To Play (RTP) protocols for session attendance , pre-screening and onsite tracking.
The EMDSL has notified all clubs that competitive league play for U8-U18 will start on Monday, July 5th and will continue through the middle of September. Restrictions have been lifted for teams to be able to play consistently throughout the summer without the two week isolation period as previously communicated. Furthermore, pool based play will return with teams being able to move players between tiers with ease. For U13+, call ups are permitted for players to play up in games.
Details will be shared directly with Oakridge teams as they become available in regards to game schedules, practices etc.
We look forward to a great summer FULL of soccer!
June 10th – We are happy to announce that with the Province of Ontario transitioning to Step 1 tomorrow, the Oakridge Soccer Club will be resuming all club activities effective Monday, June 14th.
All teams & programs can begin summer training in accordance with the guidelines set forward by Ontario Soccer. With teams from U8B to U21W and Men’s Division 4 set to compete this summer, the Oakridge Soccer Club is one of the last not for profit, volunteer managed community clubs in the region.
Updates from all teams will be sent out to each player & family shortly outlining training schedules and uniform sizing in anticipation of starting league competition in Step 2 in early July. Competition will resume providing the province continues to trend in the right direction with increased vaccinations across all age groups and a decrease in positive COVID cases.
