On May 11th, 2020 Ontario Soccer announced that due to the current COVID-19 public health emergency all sanctioned in-person soccer events and activities for the month of June have been cancelled or postponed.

SUMMER HOUSE LEAGUE & GRASSROOTS UPDATE
Due to COVID-19 we have been evaluating a delayed start to our Summer Grassroots Program and our Summer House League; the health and safety of all our players, parents, coaches, and organizers remaining our priority. Despite our huge love for the game of soccer, we have made difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Summer House League and Summer Grassroots Programs.
The ongoing health risks, restrictions, delays, and uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 health emergency have been the basis of our decision to cancel our 2020 Recreational Soccer programming. On May 11th, 2020 Ontario Soccer announced that due to the current COVID-19 public health emergency all sanctioned in-person soccer events and activities for the month of June have been cancelled or postponed (sanctioned soccer has been suspended in Ontario since March 12th, 2020). The soccer fields in Brantford are currently closed until further notice. Team sports are currently not allowed by the Ontario Government. Provincial Health authorities are currently advocating social distancing, the wearing of masks in public, and limiting the gathering of individuals.
We regret having to make this decision, but believe it is the safest and fairest decision for our Galaxy family. Full refunds will be offered automatically to all affected registered participants. Refunds if possible will be made back to the original credit card (if registered within the past 90 days), otherwise refund cheques will be mailed to the address provided during registration. We thank all of you for your interest and support of Galaxy Soccer and look forward to a return to outdoor play in the summer of 2021. Our Fall 2020 Indoor programming remains pending the developments surrounding COVID-19.
Wishing you all good health during these unprecedented times,
Brantford Galaxy Youth Soccer Club
