President’s Message May 23, 2020
Dear Clarkson players, families, and supporters,
With the arrival (finally) of sunshine and seasonal temperatures, it’s hard not to look upon our community soccer fields without a sense of longing, and a feeling of absence.
We’ve faced many challenges in the almost 50 year history of the club, delaying or impeding the start of a season, but nothing like this.
Yet, we still stand hopeful and positive that there will be soccer this summer.
As per the guidelines of the City of Mississauga and the Ontario Soccer Association, July 3rd still remains as the target date for a return to play. Of course, as we all know, the situation is beyond changeable and we search the news and various social media platforms daily for the latest updates.
We will be fluid, flexible, and responsive to whatever scenario emerges.
We await, also, the return to play protocols that will be drafted and communicated by our provincial governing body. Supplementing this, the club searches soccer feeds form around the world, looking for best practices to implement when we given the green light.
Safety will be paramount.
We recognize that we are not isolated in facing these challenges. Hockey, baseball, basketball, lacrosse and myriad more sports and activities are deeply affected.
Community sports contribute significantly to the quality of life in our community.
Indeed, they are an integral thread in it’s fabric.
We offer our support and best wishes to all our brother and sister organizations.
Rest assured, that regardless of outcomes for this summer, the club is exercising all prudence in it’s operations.
We look forward to returning to our fields this year, and anticipate a fine celebration of the the club’s 50th anniversary in 2021.
Please continue to check the website for updates as information becomes available to us.
To your continued health,
