Presidents Message

September 2020

A Message from the President:

Dear Clarkson Families,

2020 was not the year that we had anticipated or planned for. It has been a challenge which no one was prepared for. When news broke in February of the virus, the Soccer community as a whole, could not imagine that an outbreak in a small city in China would envelope the world in weeks.

Leagues, facilities, companies, schools even governments shut down. There was no playbook for this eventuality and like everyone we have had to adjust. Some of the leagues provided credits towards future registrations as did some facilities and the municipality.  These credits will be realized in the winter, if indoor programs are permitted. We were fortunate that our district, Peel Halton refunded team registration for the summer season, monies we paid out last January, many other leagues did limited refunds or withheld administration fees.

The leadership team have reduced staff and have others on layoff.  We have negotiated with suppliers in an attempt to preserve our reserves. We switched out telecom provider to realize significant savings but our former provider refused to allow us to port the telephone number, thus a new number.  We are sorry for the confusion that caused. We have introduced measures to save registrants money and supplementary training fees.

Clarkson soccer club has a long proud history, 2021 will be our 50th year serving the community with quality soccer programs. In those 50 years we have had over 65,000 players learn the game. Thousands have gone on to higher levels with the club. We have had tournament champions, league champions and individuals who have gone on to professional careers. Jonathan Osorio and Lucas Cavallini both have been recognized by FIFA as a Clarkson alumni. We are a true community club with strong recreational and competitive programs from U4 to U18 and we have filled a role with Special Olympics in the community and province.

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many tough decisions to be made by your leadership team, volunteers all who continue to engage and consult to see that we will emerge this time strong and ready to adapt to the ‘new normal’ for the benefit of our players in the community. We are watching the indoor situation closely and will look for the direction from our governing bodies as to what programs we will be permitted this fall and winter.

We are proud of the amazing volunteers who have contributed to the building and success of this club, the administrator, coaches, team managers and the staff we have, engaged to move us forward. We are looking forward to building back the game we all love and seeing the new normal and the success of the great Clarkson players.

Be well,

Frank Stradiotto

President
