You can read more on this story on the Total Sports Quinte website.
QWSC is working towards finalizing its return to play protocols (RTP) to be effective the first of the new year.
These protocols, together with the completion of the required Risk Assessments and the confirming of the Club’s Emergency Lead, will allow soccer programs to re-commence.
This will subsequently allow the Club to commence indoor programs together with allowing Rep teams to perform winter training (subject to availability of facilities), and to allow Rep teams to move forward with their scheduling of tryouts for the 2021 season.
We remind all that this initiative will be subject to an Ontario Soccer registration process and to all government and municipal restrictions that may be in place at the time.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic the office is “Closed to the Public”, however every attempt is being made to continue business as usual behind the scenes and remotely. Please feel free to contact the office either by phone at 613-965-6283 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

QWSC reminds all members that as the 2020 QWSC Outdoor season has been cancelled, QWSC, in following with Ontario Soccer and SOSA District guidelines/protocols, does not permit or consent to any official soccer related activity or training at this time. Anyone participating in such activity needs to understand that they are doing so with no support from, no affiliation with, and with no available liability against, the Quinte West Soccer Club.
Stay safe and healthy.
There was a conference call yesterday reviewing the Academies etc...and one thing has changed from the email I sent last week (see below).
Peel Halton District will be running an Academy League for those Academies who wish to take part. Please ensure you make this correction if you have posted the below or sent out to your membership.
SOSA Executive Director
There was some concern brought up regarding a flyer the KBFC Academy had sent out for tryouts. I have spoken with the Academy to gain understanding on what this exactly meant, since it goes against rules and regulations for how teams enter into Regional Play and what Regional League they can play in. Their was some misunderstanding (the academies are transitioning from being directly associated with Ont.Soc. to now falling under the Districts and what that means etc...) and through discussions, the Academy now understands they cannot play where they have proposed to play for the 2021 season. They can play in the SOSA District League for the 2021 season and from there win promotion into the ERSL. Please note; the Academy league will not be running in 2021. The Academy teams will be playing in District Leagues.
I have asked that they change their flyer to accurately advertise what I've stated above.
Hope this helps clear things up. Take care.
SOSA Executive Director
Further to our cancellation of the 2020 Outdoor Season on June 30th, we remind those that have not done so yet that "Registration Fee” Refunds are available to those requesting them or you may choose to apply your payment as a credit towards the 2021 outdoor season.
We ask that you advise us, before our financial year end of September 30th, as to your preference through an email to the Club at email@example.com and if choosing a refund to therein confirm the email account to which your refund is to be sent, as all refunds will be issued via etransfer.
Notwithstanding the above, Rep members shall have one of two options with respect to their 2020 “Registration Fees” paid, being 1) leave their fees with the Club as an on account for 2021, which in turn shall guarantee their spot on their respective team for 2021 (with the exception of the U15G-please contact your coach), or 2) request a full “Registration Fee” refund, which on the payment of the refund is an acknowledgment that the player has forfeited their place on said 2021 team. No refunds will be given for uniforms or equipment purchased.

Please be advised that as of this date
Quinte West Soccer Club has cancelled all 2020 QWSC outdoor seasons due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
This decision means that QWSC House League and QWSC Wolverines REP teams will not have an “outdoor” season in 2020. It is further noted that the effects of this decision shall be re-visited should SOSA or the CSL return to play at a later date.
Supporting the decision to cancel the season, QWSC referred to the rigorous risk assessment process in the protocol and the vulnerability of volunteer directors, coaches and managers and clubs given the lack of liability insurance for pandemics. Additionally, the decision was made because the health and safety of the soccer community could not be guaranteed.
We know how much hard work everyone put into planning and preparing for the 2020 outdoor season and on behalf of the club, we would like to thank each of you, in all your capacities, for volunteering with QWSC. To our players, we understand your disappointment and sadness with this decision. Over the winter, you put a lot of work into preparing for an outdoor season that would have been amazing for all QWSC teams.
We want everyone to understand and be assured that their health and well-being is our paramount concern. QWSC is hopeful that indoor soccer, skills and drills programs, and training will return in late 2020 or early 2021. QWSC hopes to see everyone back for the indoor or for the 2021 season!
“Registration Fee” Refunds will be available to all those requesting them or you may choose to apply your payment as a credit towards the 2021 outdoor season.
Notwithstanding the above, Rep members shall have one of two options with respect to their 2020 “Registration Fees” paid, being 1) leave their fees with the Club as an on account for 2021, which in turn shall guarantee their spot on their respective team for 2021, or 2) request a full “Registration Fee” refund, which on the payment of the refund is an acknowledgment that the player has forfeited their place on said 2021 team. No refunds will be given for uniforms or equipment purchased.
We ask that you advise us as to your preference through email to the Club at firstname.lastname@example.org and if choosing a refund to therein confirm the email account to which you request your refund be sent.
Please note that all refunds will be issued via etransfer.
We ask all members for their patience as we prepare refunds for those requesting them.
Stay safe and healthy,
