As we continue to navigate uncharted waters, the Rangers Board of Directors would like to thank you for your continued patience as we sort out the impact Covid-19 is having on our operations as a Soccer Club. Your Board has met numerous times via Zoom over the past couple of months to examine the options in detail for 2020/2021 player evaluations and partial player refunds of 2019/2020 registration fees.
The Board has decided to move Player Evaluations for ages U13 & up from July to September for this upcoming season only. Many factors were considered in making this decision including when NYS will allow Youth Soccer to resume and, most importantly, the safety of our players. Evaluations for ages U12 & under will continue as planned in September. The dates for these evaluations will be the weekends of September 12/13 & 26/27. Exact dates and times for the individual age groups are still undetermined.
As you may recall from our Annual General Meeting, the majority of the club’s expenses are from indoor field rental, indoor leagues, player registration fees (player passes), and adult background screenings. Due to the timing of the Covid-19 shutdown, these fees were all paid in full. Therefore, although we did not get to participate in any RDYSL league play, the reduction in club expenses was minimal. The Board has determined that a refund of $75 per player is possible without dipping into our emergency reserves. Refund checks will be issued from the club and sent directly to you. Due the volume of participants, it will take us several weeks to work through writing the individual checks and getting them packaged for mailing. We will be working on this a team at a time and your managers will receive details when your team has been completed.
We look forward to seeing everyone soon!
Penfield Rangers Board of Directors
