welcome to phase 2!

Renfrew County moves to Stage 3 today and Ontario Soccer is moving us into Phase 2 of Return to Play.  This means we are able to welcome our U10 players back to the pitch starting Tuesday, July 21. 

If you would like to register a new U10 player, please do so immediately by going to our registration page and reading all information carefully.  Additional information may be found in the previous update below.




Start of Season 

We have been approved to start our season:  July 13 - Sept 3.

U12 and up will begin July 13.  They will be beginning in Phase 1 of Return to Play.  This will strictly be technical training under physical distancing.  Phase 2 will allow for in house scrimmaging.

U10 will begin when we are allowed to move to Phase 2.  We do not know when that will be.

SCHEDULE  (all at Grouse Park)

U10:  Tuesday, Thursday  6:00 pm
U12:  Monday, Wednesday  6:00 pm
U14, U14+:  Monday, Wednesday  6:30 pm

Length will initially be for an hour.  If players are enjoying themselves and in agreement, sessions may be increased.


(Re-)Registration, Fees & Waivers

Season Fee

$90 based on a July 13 start date.

Who needs to register?

If you have already paid, you do not need to register again. You will be refunded at the end of the season on a pro-rated basis based on the time your child started to the end of the season (September 3).

If you have not paid, including those who filled out the wait list registration or were previously registered for U13+ but were refunded, you will need to register. In order to reduce the fee to $90, please use the following code: PlayOn.

Additional waivers  (CRUCIAL!!)

This registration form was developed pre-COVID, therefore, the waivers do not include important information that must be addressed under current circumstances. All participants, including coaches, must also submit the appropriate supplemental waiver found on the registration page in order to participate.

  • Participants U18: Supplemental Informed Consent and Assumption of Risk Agreement
  • Participants Age 18+ and Volunteers: Supplemental Release of Liability-Waiver of Claims-Indemnity Agreement for Volunteers

If these waivers are not received, participants will not be allowed on the pitch.



Due to ratios of coaches to players, we cannot take late registrations this year. We apologize for this inconvenience.



Not continuing on?

If your child is currently registered and you are not interested in continuing on, you must communicate directly to Cheryl Smith that you would like a refund before registration closes July 11. Otherwise, we will assume your child will be participating and we will plan accordingly.  Cheryl is the single point of contact for refunds.

After Season Start

We will provide a full refund only until the start of the second training session.  There will be no refunds after that.


Other Information

Due to lower registration numbers, teams will be mixed gender.

Parents will be required to attend a meeting (virtual or by means of physical distancing) with coaches prior to the first session to understand expectations of hygiene, distancing, sanitation, and other guidelines.  These guidelines will also be posted on our website for your reference.

If possible, players are encouraged to bring their own soccer ball marked with their name.  If they do not have one, balls will be provided as always.

Humidex Policy

Practices are at the discretion of the coach.  If you haven't heard from your coach, assume practice is still being held.

Games will be canceled and rescheduled under the following circumstances:

  • U10 & U12: Humidex is 37 or higher
  • U14+: Humidex is 40 or higher

This decision is made at the league level at 4:00 pm based on Environment Canada's projected humidex for 7:00 pm in Pembroke.  Martin Smith and Cheryl Smith will be notified by VUSL in the case of a high humidex cancellation and the coaches will be contacted who will then contact their teams.
