UPDATE: Storm Spring Soccer Season

… unfiltered comments from the president’s desk about our Club and soccer in general …

Turnaments play an important role in the rythym of play of our teams.  Ideally, it is an opportunity to play teams outside the league.

We are deliberate about the tournaments we send teams to.  We pick ones that are well-run (and have good parking) with a good reputation of creating fair brackets of teams with similar skills.  Ideally, giving each team an opportunity to win.  Our goal is to put teams in divisions of the tournament where they will be competitive.  My view is that it’s better to win 2 and lose 1 than have 3 teams that are easy to beat.  Unfortunately, some teams or clubs see tournament as an easy chance to collect a trophy by applying to lower division than they should be in.  The result of pretty lobsided scores.  We’ve seen 20-1 and 12-0 scoresl out teams on the losing end.  Our teams didn’t have any fun playing retreive the ball from the goal and the other team certainly didn’t get anything useful out of the game.

Want to share with you what we know about the status of spring soccer. All Storm practices, training and games continue to be suspended until at least April 14th.  At this time, I don’t have any new information on when or if soccer might resume. Between now and April 14 we expect to get an update on the status of the spring season.

There have been some discussions about whether the season could be extended (we’ve voiced concern about that due to the many vacations that are already planned) if we resume. And, different scenarios are being looked at for tryouts.

But, until we get guidance from the national health authorities, the Governor’s office and our governing soccer associations, it’s impossible to predict when or if we will resume soccer this spring. We will keep you updated with new information as we get it so you can plan accordingly.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Bruce Jones
