Dear OSC families,
It is with great sadness that I am sending this email out tonight, on behalf of the OSC Board of Directors. Late this evening, we received word from CASL that the 2020 spring season of youth soccer has been cancelled. Earlier today, the Michigan Youth Soccer Association (MSYSA), which is the governing body for CASL, announced that it would be tentatively pushing back the start of the spring season to May 14. As a result of this decision, CASL was left without enough time to fit the season in prior to fall tryouts. Baring any upcoming changes, fall tryouts are scheduled for mid-June.
A few key items that I am sure many of you have questions about:
1. CASL will be refunding the money that we have paid to them. That will be reimbursed to OSC and as soon as that happens, we will be sending out reimbursement checks to all of you for your registration expenses for the spring season. We will send out another announcement as soon as we are able to send out your checks.
2. Fall Tryouts 2020 – As I previously stated above – Right now, the plan is to have fall tryouts in mid-June. Please understand that with COVID-19, our current situation is constantly evolving. With this in mind, our schedule for fall tryouts could change. If that happens, we will reach out and give you further details as soon as we can.
Despite having yet another devastating loss for our kids, our parents and our community, please know that this is not the end. The OWOSSO SOCCER CLUB is committed to keeping the kids engaged and active with or without the ability to competitively play the sport that we all love so much. OSC, in partnership with SOCCER SOURCE, will continue to post daily challenges on Facebook and we encourage our players to participate.
This loss hurts, but we will get though this together.
Stay HEALTHY and STAY STRONG!
