UPDATE AUGUST 7, 2020

CSA Rec families,
We hope this email finds you all healthy and staying active. Thank you for registering with CSA for the Fall season despite the uncertainties facing our community. CSA will continue to make every effort to provide a season of soccer our recreational program players and we are looking forward to returning to the fields!

In response to the extension of Phase 2 in North Carolina, as well as local government actions that continue to limit access to public fields at this time, CSA has made the decision to delay the start of the recreational soccer season one week, from September 7 to September 14.


Our COVID-19 Season Plan was developed to take these delays into account and allows us to modify the schedule as needed as we progress through the next few months. We will continue to plan for the fall season with confidence that we can head into September 11 with permission to hold practices and games on most of our usual fields. We ask that you please take a few moments to re-review the CSA Season Plan as well as the calendar that appears on the webpage for your age group and location.

We will keep you updated on any developments that will impact the plan for the fall season and we continue to accept registrations for the fall season as noted on the website.

A few housekeeping items:

Uniforms: We have been getting a few questions about uniforms. If you have a blue uniform from last season, you are welcome to use that for the Fall season. If you need a uniform, information will be provided soon. While our new sky blue uniforms will be in use through Spring 2021, we understand that many families would prefer to delay the purchase. We respect that decision and will work with you to resolve any issues that arise.

Volunteers: We are still recruiting parent volunteers to coach our teams. This season more than ever, it is important to lock in our volunteers early so they can attend our coach training sessions in preparation for the extra safety measures we will be implementing this season. Please consider volunteering to coach your child’s team! Contact Amy at the email address below.

Junior Academy: Junior Academy evaluations scheduled for August 12-15 will be rescheduled. We will send and post information as soon as possible! Please reach out to Rich at the address below with questions.


COVID-19 POLICIES - FALL 2020

The program information offered below is based on CSA’s understanding of current situation based the Governor’s orders and other guidance as of July 15, 2020 and our best prediction of allowable activities on public properties for the upcoming months.

CSA is looking forward to seeing our new and returning families and we will make every effort to provide a great soccer experience, but like all of you, we are faced with much uncertainty due to the impact of the pandemic and the governing bodies' response.

Should you decide to register for Fall soccer, we ask for your understanding and flexibility, as changes to field assignments and dates may be necessary based on allowable activities, available venues and capacities.
