Last evening , along with many other sport organizations , Ontario Soccer published the following notice regarding the containment of COVID-19.
Ontario 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 decision to 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.
As most activities were likely suspended next week as a result of March Break, this will gives everyone a extra time to catch up on other family activities. Mississauga Croatia Soccer Club will keep you abreast of further developments as we become aware of them. The official notice is attached.
