Dear Club Leadership, Coaches and Team Managers:
The “green light” to return to competitive youth soccer depends on approvals from various health organizations, government officials as well as the availability of facilities. As I am sure you are, we are hopeful that with new safety protocols in place, we can return to the soccer fields in the not-too-distant future.
With that in mind and to help you plan for the future, the 2020 EDP Soccer Tournament calendar has been updated. This document includes new and existing tournament dates, as well as backup dates for some events that may yet be further impacted by COVID-19. While more delays are always a possibility, EDP Soccer is doing its best to make sure there are options for teams to play competitive soccer as soon as possible.
With the help of the EDP Leadership Council and in response to hearing from many of our customers, EDP Soccer is also very pleased to announce a plan to allow your team and club to Register with Confidence!
Under the Register with Confidence plan, teams can register for EDP Tournaments (through July 2020) with no upfront registration fees processed until after EDP Soccer knows with certainty that no state or federal restrictions related to COVID-19 will prevent the event from occurring. If EDP Soccer cannot run an event due to COVID-19 restrictions, no payment will be processed. No refunds or credits will be necessary.
The EDP Soccer staff is ready to assist with registering your team in EDP tournaments so that we will all be ready to go as the new government approvals and safety protocols are announced. And now, with no down payments and no chance to lose any funds if an event does not occur due to COVID-19 restrictions, you can Register with Confidence.
EDP Soccer remains open and available to answer your questions as you plan to restart your soccer season. For more information/to register regarding Register with Confidenceor general questions, please contact your EDP representative, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also find more information at the EDP Soccer Tournament website: edpsoccer.com/tournaments.
By now, many of us know close friends and/or family who have suffered from the challenges of this current health crisis. But, we will get through these times as a soccer family and as a soccer community. We are all in it together - #inittogether.
United by Soccer,
Your EDP Soccer Team
