Dec 17 Update

Dear CGSA Families,

 

We understand the frustration families are feeling around the stop and go that has been our indoor season so far and we want you to know we hear you and we feel it to. With the current COVID-19 protocols in place CGSA has had no choice but to pause the season a mere one week in. As of present, the season will be paused until the middle of January. We hope that we will be up and playing after this three week pause is over and that we will still get in an incredible season stretching out into March. Our goal is to have a CGSA indoor season, that is our hope and that is what we are working towards.

We want to thank you for your continued patience and grace during these unprecedented times and we look forward to getting all of our CGSA kids on the fields, as soon as it is safe and possible. We will continue to update you as more announcements come forward and this all unfolds. Please continue to follow our website at www.cgsa.ca and our facebook page at CGSA Community Grassroots Soccer Academy for more information as it becomes available.
