Dear BSA Community,
We hope you are all doing well and are all healthy in what is truly an unprecedented time. Since our last note on March 16th quite a lot has changed. We want to give you all an update on how the BSA is responding. This will be brief as we know you are getting inundated with messages like this.
Current Season Status
As of today, no program, town or travel, would be able to begin the season before May 9th. Even in this case it would be a partial season. The best evidence we have seen strongly suggests that the season will not happen at all.
As such, the BSA has held an emergency Board meeting and unanimously agreed that we will be issuing full refunds for all registration fees, late fees, and uniform purchases made for the Spring 2020 season. The logistics of refunds are yet to be finalized, but we will be attempting to make credits back to people’s original forms of payment.
If a partial season can happen, all registered players will still be eligible to play even after receiving refunds. Uniform orders will be donated to the needy if and when the season is confirmed canceled.
At that same meeting the Board also discussed what the BSA could do to support the community. The Board unanimously agreed to earmark a portion of our capital investment fund for projects and philanthropic purposes to help individuals and organizations in this time of need. In the past this capital investment fund has been used to rejuvenate Grove St field, Winn Brook field, and Town Field, to fund defibrillators, and to contribute to other town and field enhancement projects. Given current events the Board will be attempting to utilize a large portion of this money to support those in the Belmont Soccer Community who have supported us.
If any families want to donate their fees to the fund, we are happy to accept donations to the BSA using the “donate” links on the http://www.BelmontSoccer.com homepage or at https://belmontsoccer.com/donate.
We thank you for your continued support of Belmont Soccer, and hope that each of you, as you are able, support your friends, neighbors, and community businesses and nonprofits in the coming months.

Your destination for all information about the Belmont Soccer Association!
Our new site will allow for better communication between Coaches and parents, allow for intra-team emails (you know, when you need that last-minute car pool you can now email your team), a new look and feel that will provide a better mobile experience and in the future a better way to provide feedback for coaches & parents.
Our web address is staying the same (www.belmontsoccer.com) so hopefully you will find all the information you need for your child's soccer experience.
As always, if you have any suggestions for improvements, please let us know.
