Statement on the Fall 2020 season

Earlier this year, the Macon County Soccer League began again what it has done for the last two decades - preparing for the spring season. The day before our pre-season Play Day tournament, the state went on lockdown due to COVID-19. While no one could have predicted the situation, we hoped it would be over soon and we could get our youth back to playing the game they love. 

When it was clear that wasn’t going to be possible, we put together a plan to try and refund what we could to our parents and looked towards the fall season as surely things would clear up by then. Even as we opened the fall registration, we recognized that people were concerned and worried about the safety of their loved ones. We also understand that some folks may feel uncertain about registering for the fall. 

We are both humbled and grateful to over 100 players who were able to register with us. Even with our final numbers being off more than 60% from the spring we had a plan to move forward with smaller teams and fewer divisions. We feel the commitment shown by our players and their families deserves nothing less. 

Unfortunately, Governor Lee has now extended the state of emergency to at least August 29th. We now find ourselves in a situation very much like the spring season. Should we try to hang on and prepare for a season that may not occur, or do we cancel our fall season early to maximize the fees returned to those who have stood with us so many times?

After discussion, the Board of Directors feel the best course of action is to cancel our fall season before the major expenses are incurred. We realize this will disappoint some, but we feel the current situation makes the fall season very unlikely. Fortunately, the Spring 2021 season outlook is much stronger. 

If you registered for the fall season, we will be refunding your fee by mail. If you paid via check at one of our sign up locations, your check will be mailed back to you. If you paid online or with cash, we will be mailing you a check. For those that registered online, the service that handles your payment charged a $3.00 per account charge. This is kept by the registration company and we won’t be able to refund that. If the address you used to register is not correct, please correct it by the 15th of July. If you can’t modify your address, please email [email protected] with your correct info so we make sure your fee gets back to you. We hope to begin the refund process shortly after the 15th and expect you to receive your refund by the end of the month. 

Our spring season sign ups will open again in January. We certainly hope to have this outbreak behind us so we can concentrate on keeping the Macon County Soccer League strong and keep bringing fun and exciting soccer to the youth of our area.
