Dear BSC Members,
Firstly, we appreciate your son(s)/daughter(s) and family engagement in the Brampton SC Home programming during the Covid-19 pandemic. As a Soccer community, it has been incredible to observe the dedication, passion and commitment from these young players to continue improving their individual skills across the 4 corners from a distance learning perspective.
Throughout the pandemic, Brampton SC has been working diligently behind the scenes with key stakeholders across Ontario/Canada to stay informed, be proactive and prepared for Return to Participation. We even developed our own Draft Return to play (RTP) plan that will need to be reviewed and contrasted with the official Ontario Soccer RTP plan before we can consider moving forward with any sort of On-field/In-Person activities.
Ontario Soccer has officially released their RTP version 1 plan today
and this will guide all sanctioned clubs and academies on the safety measures/protocols that need to be implemented before we can reopen
in-person training activities. All member clubs and academies in the Province of Ontario will be seeing today for the first time the official Ontario Soccer RTP documentation and we are going need time to effectively interpret, design and put in place the appropriate safety measures/protocols as specified by Canada Soccer, Ontario Soccer,
Public Health Authorities and our local Municipality.
Also, each region is at a different stage regarding the risks surrounding Covid-19, which will impact our timelines and what happens next inside the Peel Region area.
Until we get approval from the appropriate authorities for reopening
On-field/In-person training activities, Brampton SC will continue to provide Home Programming to supplement the 4 Corner Development until we are given official sign off to reopen.
We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through our specific realities regarding RTP to ensure we provide a safe environment that protects our community. As we get more updates, Brampton SC will continue our open and transparent communication on the next steps in
the RTP process.
