Hello Parents, Players, Coaches & Trainers
We hope this email finds you safe and well!!
I'm sure all of you have been watching the news. As the Federal, State & local governments look to re-open the economy and society as a whole, we continue to look at the many different ways this will affect the landscape of youth soccer & youth sports as whole.
I have been in constant contact with our neighboring Clubs (Lynbrook/ ER, Oceanside, RVC, Baldwin & Valley Stream). We’ve had Virtual meetings as well as conference calls and one-on-one meetings. Although we still don’t have any guidance from the US Youth Soccer Association, ENY Soccer Association & LIJSL, we have been discussing what options we will have to move forward once everything is re-opened. Please remember that our Local school districts’ decisions will impact our options since we (as well as most of the clubs here on Long Island) utilize school district fields for practice and games. The bottom line is we do not know what the future holds but we will do what we can in the best interests of our players and their families. It is our duty to make sure we are Socially responsible once play is able to resume. We are developing guidelines and protocols to make sure we can all go back and feel comfortable and safe as players, coaches, referees & spectators.
I know many of you are concerned about the registration payments made for the Spring season. As I have stated previously, all of our decisions will be based on the best interests of the Club, players and their families. Please remember….we are a non-profit organization and most of the expenses which are covered by your registration fees are prepaid prior to the season. We are continually working with Nassau County Parks, Hewlett-Woodmere School District, LIJSL, our Insurance Co., etc to see what and how we will move forward once normalcy is restored (or something close to it).
HLSC appreciates your patience and support as we get through this challenging time together. We will make every attempt to update you as more information becomes available. Please make sure to check us out on Instagram (Hewlettlawrencesoccerclubusa) & Facebook. We will (& have been) constantly update through social media as well as by email. If you have any pictures or videos of games, practices or just the kids goofing around in the backyard, please upload them to our social media…The kids will love to see them.
Lastly, PLEASE stay safe and healthy…this too shall pass and we will get our kids back to playing and enjoying the BEAUTIFUL GAME!!!!
HLSC B.O.D President
