Hi All… we just got word that we can return to Pier 40 ASAP! This is great news.
If you are interested in returning to play on their brand new turf field this summer, please read on.
The terms of our return are in line with all the state and local guidelines. We are offering practice sessions for teams, small groups and individuals beginning Mon. July 27th and Wed. July 29th. IMPORTANT: Please read our full “Return to Play” guidelines. These MUST be adhered to.
Each session is 45 minute long and will take place on Mondays at 7pm, 8pm and 9pm, and Wednesdays at 8:30pm and 9:15pm. You will rotate through the time slots over the course of the 5 week sessions. Metro Soccer will provide licensed coaches to conduct the practice sessions for you and provide a framework for your return to more competitive play in the Fall.
Because of social distancing regulations, capacity for these sessions is very limited, less than 50% of normal, so please let us know ASAP if you are interested.
Weekly, Mondays or Wednesdays. Program 5 x 45 minute sessions… you can now pick your individual dates!
Individuals and Small groups: $17.80 per session
Is this competitive Soccer?: No, these are practice and drill sessions for teams, small groups and individuals, so that they are ready to play when the Fall season begins.
Can I register for just one session. Not at the moment, no. Because we need to keep track of who is on the field at any one time, it is not possible to register just for one session. Once assigned to a team, you will participate only with other members of that team for the duration of the program. Because of contract tracing rules, we need to keep these team ‘pods’ together and separate from other pods.
Can I register for just one time slot: No, we will rotate the time slots over the course of the five weeks. Start times are 7-9pm (Mondays and 8:30pm to 10pm (Wednesdays). The latest time slot is 9pm (Mondays) and 9:15 (Wednesdays) and you will get a maximum of two sessions at each time slot.
I paid for the Spring. Will these sessions be credited against my balance? That is not our intention. We plan on re-opening the Spring divisions as soon as we are able in the Fall. We have kept track of the credits available and will roll them over for the Fall leagues. The only exception might be is if you wish to participate in the Summer but not in the Fall.
What are the rules and regulations regarding participation? You can download a comprehensive list here. You will be asked to sign a waiver that says you agree to all the terms and conditions.
What social distancing requirements will be in place? Once again, the full list of guidelines is available here. We will forward further instructions once your registration has been accepted.
How will registration work? If a team (up to 12 players) registers, we will assign a schedule for them each week. For small groups and free agent individuals, we will assign you to a squad and you will stay with that squad for the duration of the program.
Let us know if you have any questions.
