NDFC Update - April 3, 2020

 

The Board and Staff of NDFC hope you are all staying safe during these unprecedented times and that we are all practicing our social distancing skills.

April 1st was a very exciting day as it was the amalgamation date of NDSC and Sur-Del. Over the next few weeks, we will be rolling out our new website, our social media platforms, and our new email addresses to the membership. 

Once we get the official go ahead from BC Soccer, we are ready to go for the Spring Season. We are also working hard for the official launch of NDFC this September, and are well on the way with preparations for the Fall season.

In the meantime, we will continue to send information out to you to keep you informed on the activities for Spring, Summer, and the upcoming Fall season.

In trying times like this, it is tight communities such as ours, that will stay resilient. We are looking forward to seeing our members back on the pitch as soon as it is safe to do so and enjoying the best game in the world.

Regards,

NDFC


COVID-19 SPRING LEAGUE UPDATE - March 25, 2020

We appreciate that this Covid-19 crisis is impacting everyone, on so many levels, and that soccer is likely one of the furthest consideration for most of our families.  With that said, we want to be ready for play, when it is safe to do so. Getting people active and social will be important!

The current directive from BC Soccer is pushing play out to May. Of course this can continue to change as new information is available.

Given the extraordinary circumstances, we have a series of scenarios/plans so that we can adjust to these changing dates. This includes the possibility of playing soccer beyond June and into the summer. We are looking for member input and have put together a short survey. Please CLICK HERE to access the survey questions. The survey will be open until March 31st.

While the season start, end, and length are still unknown, we remain optimistic that soccer will be played at some point in the months to come. We will continue to accept registrations, engage our volunteers, and build out teams, so that we are ready to mobilize, when the time comes. 

We will continue to provide regular updates, every 10-14 days or more frequently, as new information becomes available.

Please stay safe, positive, and patient. We will get through this together.  


BC Soccer Operations and Logistics Update - March 19,2020

BC Soccer Operations and Logistics Update - March 19

Posted on March 19th, 2020 by BC Soccer

As Canadian governments, communities and citizens continue to adapt to the rapidly changing situation caused by COVID-19, BC Soccer is continuing to work to provide information and updates to our members and affiliated soccer clubs.

We must also continue to work together as a collective community and follow the direction from the appropriate health authorities, which BC Soccer is doing.

As stated in our March 17, 2020 Memo, BC Soccer is working under a two-week review and decision-making process to cancel and/or postpone programs and activity that BC Soccer directly operates. We understand that longer timelines may be needed at the local levels and having a consistent timeline that everyone across the province is working with would be helpful. Therefore, BC Soccer is advising members and affiliated clubs to plan for soccer activity to not occur in April 2020. Of course, if Canada Soccer’s suspension is lifted earlier, we will work to resume earlier.

We are in the process of developing contingency plans and BC Soccer personnel may be in touch with you (districts/leagues) via phone/e-mail/survey to gather information on the realities of your local situation. We thank you for providing us any information that you can, which will help to best plan and prepare for when soccer can get back to normal.   

Like all of you are doing within your respective communities, we are doing the best that we can to support you and your local community. Thank you for all that you are doing. With all of us working together, and supporting one another, we will get through this and get back to what we all love….playing our game!

BC Soccer Office and Contacts
Please do not come to the BC Soccer office, rather connect with BC Soccer personnel via phone/e-mail.

Safety Precautions 
As a reminder, please follow the direction from the appropriate health authorities and BC Centre for Disease Control recommendations the following for reducing the risk of exposure to novel coronavirus:

  • Wash your hands frequently (it is the single most effective way of reducing infection spread).

  • Practice other good hygiene habits: do not touch your face/eyes/mouth with your hands and cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough (ideally with a disposable tissue or the crease of your elbow).

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched workspace surfaces.

  • Maintain good general health (eat a balanced diet, get enough sleep, exercise in moderation).

  • Stay home if you are sick.

  • Contact 8-1-1 (HealthLink BC) or your health care provider for questions about your personal health situation.

Cascadia League Update - Spring Soccer - March 15, 2020


COVID-19 UPDATE- March 13, 2020

 

Dear SurDel and NDSC families:

As you are likely well aware, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused a sudden and significant impact to a number of extra curricular activities, including the suspension/cancellation of various sporting leagues, events, and activities.

Today, BC Soccer, in accordance with direction from Canada Soccer, has directed all of its members and affiliated clubs to suspend all sanctioned soccer activities.  This includes, but it is not limited to, all competitions, training, practices, matches, coach/referee education sessions, and team building activities.  SurDel Girls Soccer Club and North Delta Soccer Club are directing all of its members to comply fully with the above direction.

At this time, we do not have confirmation on what effect, if any, this will have on our upcoming Spring season.  Our club officials are in contact with Cascadia League, and will provide you with an update as soon as we have confirmation of a decision.  We can share with you that Cascadia's hope is to go ahead with the season as planned, but that will obviously depend on how the situation unfolds.  Please refer to the attached letter from BC Soccer if you wish to obtain further information about this announcement.

We encourage all members to keep informed with the latest information about COVID-19 that is available through various government sources, including https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/diseases/2019-novel-coronavirus- infection.html and https://www.healthlinkbc.ca/health-feature/coronavirus-disease-covid-19 

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a safe and enjoyable Spring break, and hope to see you back at the soccer pitch very soon!

Thank you.

NORTH DELTA SOCCER CLUB


Special General Meeting - March 6, 2020

During the second part of the meeting, both NDSC and Sur-Del, will vote independently to approve the official amalgamation of NDSC and Sur-Del to form NDFC (including the new Board of Directors). In February of 2019 we held a vote to merge both clubs and it was passed.

Important Notice: Coronavirus Awareness & Prevention

 

BC Soccer is aware of the virus, and ongoing monitoring throughout B.C., nationally and internationally. We are confident that all the affected agencies are doing their utmost to ensure all necessary precautions are being taken to prevent the spread of infection. There is no need at this time to restrict any soccer-related activities for players and team officials or to cancel games, practices, and tournaments.

As a simple precaution and reminder, BC Soccer would like to share the BC Centre for Disease Control recommendations for reducing the risk of exposure to novel coronavirus:

  • Wash your hands frequently (it is the single most effective way of reducing infection spread).

  •   Practice other good hygiene habits: do not touch your face/eyes/mouth with your hands, and cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough (ideally with a disposable tissue or the crease of your elbow).

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched workspace surfaces

  • Maintain good general health (eat a balanced diet, get enough sleep, exercise in moderation).

  • Stay home if you are sick.

  • Contact 8-1-1 (HealthLink BC) or your health care provider for questions about your personal health situation.

In light of the virus, instead of hand shakes, we are asking that players "elbow tap" after their games this weekend and for any teams that are still playing in tournaments and finals in the next few weeks!

 

Further information about novel coronavirus is available on the BC Centre for Disease Control website.
