No soccer on Nov. 15th. It was cancelled by the TLDSB due to a school event.
Youth coaches, the most important part of the HSClub, are always welcome.
You have to fill out Coming To Indoor before the beginning of each indoor month and keep it up to date. If you don’t, the HSClub has no option but to assume that you have dropped out and to remove you from the indoor registration files.
Soccer is not able to benefit from insurance provided to other Community Use Of Schools sports such as basketball. That is unfair; but it is also the way it is. Many of you who play other evening sports mistakenly think that you can just drop in to soccer as you do to them. You can’t. We have a private insurance provider who requires us to keep a signed registration form on file for every player. We can be audited at any time. If the audit shows a deficiency our insurance is void. Our insurance is much more expensive than basketball’s, for instance; so you have to pay with money, or by coaching youth soccer. The other sports generally don’t need to keep a registration list. Youth coaches are always welcome.
