ECSL 2020 Outdoor Season
ECSL Club Reps,
The only certainty at this time is that there will not be grassroots and competitive soccer in Essex County in the months of May and June.
Assuming that we are able to play soccer in July, I ask that the clubs poll their membership to determine the level of club/team participation in a shortened season.
The league deadline for the return to play is July 15, 2020
If we are not able to start playing games by July 15, the 2020 ECSL outdoor soccer season will be CANCELLED.
Note: The West Region Soccer League has also set a deadline of July 15 and will cancel its season if the Regional league does not start to play by that time.
Please provide a list of teams (by age and gender) that would be willing to participate in a shortened season.
Please note that if Ontario Soccer cancels the 2020 outdoor season, the $3.10 SportEngine admin fee will not apply to players in the OSCAR system.
However, if the League or a Club (house league) cancels the outdoor season but Ontario Soccer does not the admin fee will apply for all players in the OSCAR system.
Therefore all registered players must be removed from the OSCAR system in order to avoid having to pay the admin fee. Making a player inactive will NOT avoid the admin fee.
Team fees paid for the 2020 season will either be held in trust for 2021 or refunded if requested.
