2020 Spring/Summer Competitive Season Update

Dear Fairmont Soccer Families:
It is with profound regret that, on behalf of the Fairmont Soccer Association, I am writing this letter to inform you that we will not be participating in the 2020 Spring/Summer competitive season.
Our board considered this issue in light of the current orders from Governor Walz, the pace of relaxation of social distancing orders, the explanation of timeline for relaxation of social distancing in the Governor’s latest news conference (4/23), and current conditions in Martin County.
An overriding concern is to provide time and event predictability to you, our families, and to provide financial relief to you as well. It is with this in mind that I wish to confirm to you that you will receive a refund for your registrations.
Additionally, if you placed an order for uniforms or spirit-wear in our online team store, those transactions will be nullified and re-credited to you. That store is not operated directly by FSA, so if there are issues in crediting, please use the contact information for the store.
I cannot give you, at this time, a date for refunds. It will be a handwritten check process, largely done by one person. So please, be patient.
This is one of the biggest decisions that I recall in my years with Fairmont Soccer. We are making this decision with the information that we have today. We felt that it was better to give our families predictability rather than stringing things out based upon the messaging from Minnesota Youth Soccer for shortened or modified seasons.
We have not formulated a plan, but if we are allowed to gather in the weeks ahead, we will discuss options for semi-organized play. But until we have some indication that we can do that, there is no planning towards that end.
I love soccer. I loved playing it and I love coaching it. It has been an integral part of my life and the life of my children and family. I will miss it….for now. But the game, and Fairmont Soccer Association will be back. We hope you will come back as well.
