PHWM Soccer (recreation program)

********************************************************************************************************************

 

PHWM Soccer’s winter indoor program:

Baltimore County Parks & Recreation indoor sports directive states no soccer games or scrimmages just distanced skill practice at 50% capacity for County facilities and programs offered by the Recreation Councils. PHWM Soccer uses school gyms for the U5 and U6 clinics, currently the Baltimore County Public Schools will not allow Parks & Recreation programs to use school facilities.

PHWM Soccer is on hold for the winter program right now.  County regulations will be reviewed in late November to determined if PHWM Soccer could have a winter indoor soccer season. The winter season in past years has run from January to early March.

PHWM Soccer (Perry Hall and White Marsh Recreation Councils) is committed to providing the PHWM soccer community a Fall 2020 recreation soccer season. The season will only be possible if it is allowed by the State of Maryland, Baltimore County and Baltimore County Recreation and Parks. The ability of PHWM Soccer program’s volunteers to effectively implement COVID-19 prevention requirements will be a major factor on the decision to run the fall soccer recreation program.

 

Although the-return-to-play of youth sports is allowed for many sports, COVID-19 prevention requirements will be required until there is a vaccination or cure for the general public.

 

PHWM Soccer is a volunteer organization. To have a Fall recreation soccer program will require the support of families participating in the program to follow the COVID-19 guidelines, rules and preventative requirements to stop the spread of the coronavirus as best as possible. Baltimore County Parks and Recreation could cancel the program if guidelines are not followed.

Parents: if you and your child(ren) will not commit to the preventive requirements please DO NOT register for the fall soccer program.

Registration placement requests for the recreation program : IMPORTANT to read

We will do our best to accommodate 2016, 2015 and 2013/14 team and player placement requests, based on a first-registered/first-to-be-placed basis, however our ultimate aim is to balance teams by age and skill level, this could mean a child would be on a different team and have a different coach than a previous soccer season. Requests for age groups 2010/11 through 2002-2005 are not guaranteed as these teams are selected by the coaches and balanced the best as possible by skill levels

 

Fall outdoor soccer schedules conflict with other outdoor sports, schedules are not coordinated between multiple sports. Please consider the schedules before registering a child for multiple sports. A child should fully participate on a team, and not miss practice or games to play another sport. Coaches are volunteers they shouldn’t have to plan around children missing their practices or games to play another sport or play on another soccer team in a different program.
