CLUB STATUS UPDATE: FALL PROGRAMS & 2020/2021 TRYOUTS:
Dear Valley Elite F.C. Parents, Players and Community,
There is no question that the past several months have been unique and at times, challenging. The uncertainty and unknowns of COVID-19 from a local, state and national level remain difficult to navigate. As a youth organization, we struggle to find the balance between want and need; providing opportunities for our kids to play and learn soccer while upholding the responsibility we have to our community and families. As we plan and prepare for the 2020-21 soccer year, Valley Elite F.C. is committed to being family and community-centric and socially responsible. We will continue to say it - the health and safety of our players, parents and soccer community is our TOP priority.
To this end and as we look forward to the new school year, we want our soccer community to be able to focus on their families and prepare for the return to school, however that may look. We also don't want to continue initiating programs only to end up cancelling them. In light of the continued increase in cases, both locally and state-wide along with the uncertainty of the Montana Youth Soccer Association (MYSA) decision to reinstate fall league activities, travel concerns, and to minimize the confusion and strain of starting/cancelling activities, our Board of Directors has taken the following actions for our upcoming fall programs:
1. Postponement of Competitive Tryouts for ages 10 to 18, originally scheduled for Saturday, August 15, 2020
2. Cancellation of the Fall Competitive League for ages 10 to 14
3. Cancellation of the Fall Micro-Elite Program for ages 6 to 10
4. Cancellation of the pre-winter Micro-Elite Indoor program scheduled, originally planned for November through December
We will temporarily close our online registration events and will re-open them in December to gear up for the Spring 2021 season. Our plan and goal is to reinstate program offerings, with the pandemic hopefully behind us, in January 2021 with a great deal of flexibility. These programs/activities will include, but not limited to:
1. Winter Indoor Training - for both competitive teams and Micro-Elite players (January through February)
2. Holding indoor tryouts for the spring competitive league (outdoors, weather and field condition permitting) in January.
3. 2021 Spring League Competitive Teams
4. Micro-Elite Spring Program
We here, at Valley Elite F.C. are grateful for each and every player/family and are working tirelessly to provide a safe, quality soccer program in our community. Rest assured that our commitment remains - to provide the best soccer opportunity and experience possible - and we will bring you updates and schedules as circumstances allow us to safely move forward on the pitch.
Be Safe, Stay Healthy and Soccer On!
