Summer 2020 FAQ

Dear WSC Members,

Please refer to our FAQ below about the changes and updates to the Summer 2020 Season.

We will be adding to the FAQ throughout the summer if necessary.

If you have a question that isn’t answered here, please email us at info@westmountsoccer.org.

WHEN WILL GAMES START? 

Subject to government approval, intercity games will start July 10.  We may be able to play scrimmage games within our club in earlier phases.

WILL THERE BE TRYOUTS? 

Not this year.  First come, first served.  Reserve your spot by completing the registration form and sending payment by the deadline.

CAN I PAY BY CHEQUE?  

No.  This season, we can only accept payments by credit card.  If you are unable to make payment, email us.

CAN ALL AGES PLAY?  

This year , the club is only permitted to accept players born 2013 or before

CAN I CHOOSE JUST TO TRAIN BUT NOT PLAY INTERCITY GAMES?   

As long as the club has enough players to form an intercity team, we will form one and expect everyone to participate. Refer FAQ #21 for further details 

WHEN DOES THE SEASON END? 

The season will end mid-October.

WHEN WILL WE PLAY

Until the end of August, we will play and practice midweek and weekends.  After that, as we do not have lights on our fields, we will only be able to play and practice on home fields on the weekends.  There may still be away games mid-week.

HOW OFTEN WILL WE PLAY? 

Assuming games do proceed, we would have at least one game each week, and 1-2 practices (U8 1 practice).  If games do not proceed, there would be around 16 training sessions (U8, 8-10 sessions).  Once school starts in September, the club will have less field time and home activities could only be on weekends.

WILL WE RECEIVE UNIFORMS? 

Due to the short notice, we will provide a more basic uniform than usual. This year the club faced a decline in sponsorship, which impacted our financial situation. Additionally, the club will not have time to print uniforms with current sponsorship logos.  

WILL YOU SUPPLY A BALL? 

No.  We have found that players do not need a ball every year, but each player does need to bring one to practice. You can purchase one on our website. 

CAN I WITHDRAW PART WAY THROUGH THE SEASON

No.  Teams only work if everyone is committed.  We do not issue refunds once the program starts. If you change your mind after the program starts, you will not receive a refund.

WHY DOES THIS HAVE TO BE SO COMPLICATED? 

Things have changed very quickly, and there are still some significant unknowns.  The club is doing its best to adapt, but we do understand that this can be confusing.

HOW DO YOU KNOW  IT IS SAFE TO PLAY GAMES?  

The club follows the direction of the Government as agreed with Soccer Quebec.  Every player will need to make their own decision.
