Hello, Thunder Coaches and Families:
We are all likely dealing with many questions and a significant amount of speculation as news updates on the COVID-19 pandemic continue daily, including rampant misinformation.
At this time, the Scarborough Minor Football Association is continuing preparations for our 2020 seasons with an expectation that the 2020 Summer outdoor program will launch at some point in the very near future. With this in mind we are asking all our participants to keep tuned to our website (www.scarboroughthunderfootball.com) for calendar updates and schedules.
Through numerous discussions with our governing bodies and their continuing discussions with multiple health care individuals, we currently do not have any definitive answers or timelines at the moment.
We do, however, feel that timelines will begin to be crystallized over the next few weeks as governing organizations in Ontario begin to clarify the appropriate responses to the novel coronavirus outbreak in our area.
Currently our Governing bodies have cancelled all activities for April and the expectation is all members abide as well and cancel all face to face meetings, training and practices. The SMFA, being a member in good standing of the Ontario Football Alliance (www.ontariofootball.ca) and Football Canada (www.footballcanada.com) , will abide by these restrictions and ask all of our member to comply as well, to ensure the health and safety of all our participants.
Thank you in advance for your continued support and efforts during this difficult time.
Scarborough Minor Football Association
Board of Directors
