AGM being held Thursday, Sept 24th

To suit an unusual year, our Annual General Meeting will be a little different than in previous years. We will be hosting the AGM on Thursday, September 24th at the Kiwanis Soccer Complex at 5pm and providing pizza. Please attend if you are interested in learning more about the organization or improving soccer in Owen Sound. There are currently vacancies on the board, so please also attend if you would be interested in filling these vacancies. We are looking forward to a good turnout!

Owen Sound House League and Rep/Development Cancelled

To the Players, Parents. Coaches and Referees of the Owen Sound Minor Soccer Association:

Thank you for your continued patience over these past few months as we navigate through these challenging times.

During this time, the OSMSA has been meeting regularly, virtually, and planning for the upcoming season in hopes that a return to play would be happening in the near future. The Province and the City of Owen Sound has started the process to allow our community to open up and last week our governing body Ontario Soccer also released a comprehensive Return to Play Guide to help manage our actions as a club.

Given the current restrictions, coupled with the fact that it is now mid-June, Minor Soccer will not be able to operate a traditional house league or rep soccer program.  

Owen Sound Minor Soccer will be refunding all registrations to parents who have already signed up for the 2020 season. Click here to see the status of our refund process.

However, we have not given up entirely on soccer this season. We hope to be able to offer a modified soccer program for certain age groups (those born in 2010 and older) later this summer/fall if the number of people allowed to gather in groups is increased (beyond the current limit of 10) and if physical distancing regulations are modified.

This program will look very different than anything we have offered in the past and the Board is looking at various options as we monitor the pandemic situation in the coming weeks.  The health and safety of our players, volunteers, parents and community will guide all of our discussions as will following guidelines provided by health authorities and soccer governing bodies.

Please continue to monitor our website and Facebook page for updates as they become available.

Status of Soccer for Summer 2020

Canada Soccer and Ontario Soccer issued a "Return to Play Guide" on June 11th. This guide is 77 pages long and contains long lists of restrictions and requirements that we must meet if we want to run soccer practices or games. Our board decided that we will take a week to examine the guide and make a decision on Thursday June 18th. The decision will be posted here after 7pm on Thursday June 18th.

If you want to read the Return to Play Guide you can download the pdf version by clicking this link.

All OSMSA games and practices suspended until the end of May

The Owen Sound Minor Soccer Association has cancelled all games, practices and events until the end of June in accordance with the decision made by Ontario Soccer.

We are still planning on having a great soccer season this summer, but we know there are a lot of concerns as to whether to sign up. What we are recommending is that you register any interested players but choose the "Pay Offline" option. By doing this, we will still be able to create teams and leagues, but no one will be out of pocket immediately. We will work with each family to arrange payment closer to the season start.

For those who have already registered and paid, thank you, and if for any reason there are changes to the season, refunds will be made.

Rep players should continue to work with your coaches for registration information.

Thank you everyone for your patience, and remember to stay home and stay safe, and we'll be back on the fields all that much faster.

If you have any questions or concerns at all, please don't hesitate to reach out to one of the board members or our Facebook page.
