Arsenal Colorado - COVID-19 / SPRING SEASON UPDATE (4/29/20)

 

April 28, 2020

 

Dear Arsenal Colorado Families,

Recently you received a message announcing the cancellation of some of the Club’s spring programming. We regret that this week the Colorado Soccer Association (CSA) has determined that all statewide spring league programming must be cancelled. This includes the Youth Travel PDL and the Youth Competitive leagues. We are disappointed that we are not able to fully serve the northern Colorado soccer community in the manner to which we are accustomed, but the Club will continue to prioritize the safety of players, members, and staff; and will continue to comply with the decisions and directives made by the State, Larimer County, and CSA.

 

Please read carefully below for the status of each of the Club’s programs New information is highlighted in yellow.

 

Youth Recreational Program

The U5-U18 in-house recreational program has been cancelled for the spring season. We will reach out to all registered participants in the coming weeks regarding a refund scenario specific to this program.

 

Youth Home PDL Program

The U9-U10 Home PDL program has been cancelled for the spring season. We will reach out to all registered participants in the coming weeks regarding a refund scenario specific to this program.

 

Adult Men’s and Women’s League

The adult men’s and women’s league program has been cancelled for the spring season. We will reach out to all registered participants in the coming weeks regarding a refund scenario specific to this program.

 

Camps and Academies

All spring season camps and academies have been cancelled. Refunds for these programs are currently being processed. The Club still hopes to host a full slate of summer camps.

 

Youth Travel PDL 

CSA has cancelled Front Range league (Travel PDL) play for the spring season. The safety of players was the paramount consideration in their decision, compounded by the closure of fields across the State. CSA has not cancelled individual club tournaments at this time and will work with organizers to determine the viability of each tournament based on safety, government directives and field availability. We will reach out to all registered participants in the coming weeks regarding a refund scenario specific to this program.

 

Youth Competitive 

CSA has cancelled competitive league play for the spring season. The safety of players was the paramount consideration in their decision, compounded by the closure of fields across the State. CSA has not cancelled individual club tournaments at this time and will work with organizers to determine the viability of each tournament based on safety, government directives and field availability. We will reach out to all registered participants in the coming weeks regarding a refund scenario specific to this program.

 

Player Placement for the Fall 2020 Season

CSA has announced that the player placement (tryouts) period for Travel PDL and Competitive teams will officially begin the week of June 22nd. Club staff is working diligently to determine a tryout process that complies with State, Larimer County, and CSA directives; that will work best for members, coaches, and available facilities; and that may include training opportunities. It is understood that some players may not be available for tryouts and the Club is determined to place every interested player to the best of our ability. If tryouts cannot safely occur the week of June 22nd, the Club will form teams based on interest and the best information available, leaving the fall season to further evaluate players and leaving the opportunity for team movement between fall and spring seasons.

 

3v3 Summer League

The Club is planning to host the summer 3v3 league, although the start date will not be until July. More information will be provided in the coming weeks.

 

Adult Coed Summer League

The Club is planning to host the summer Adult Coed league, although the start date will be later in the summer than previous years. More information will be provided in the coming weeks.

 

Arsenal Colorado is a nonprofit organization that has served the northern Colorado soccer community for over 40 years. In a time when many clubs are being taken over and merged into mega-clubs, Arsenal Colorado continues to operate locally and independently, governed by a board of directors and operated by a staff dedicated to providing soccer opportunities for all.  Through the years the Club has strived to evolve as an organization in order to provide outstanding service to its members, coaching excellence, volunteer opportunities and superior facilities. We are determined to emerge from the pandemic crisis as the Club you know and hopefully value.

 

We look forward to a time when we can once again gather to play and watch soccer; filled with fun, laughter, exercise, and the enjoyment of being together. No one can say when that will happen, but we leave you with a message of hope for the future. Hope is an incredibly powerful thing and just your hope and patience can be the difference for the Club’s young players.

 

Sincerely,

Arsenal Colorado
