August 11th Update

Hello Sherwood Soccer Families,

In typical years we would have started practice this week and fields across Sherwood would be full of the sounds of soccer. Unfortunately this has not been a typical year. It is with heavy hearts we announce the Board of Directors of the Sherwood Youth Soccer Club voted tonight to suspend the soccer season for Fall 2020.

Over the last several months our board hasĀ spent countless hours and expressed a strong commitment to exploring the possibility of conducting a soccer season. We worked diligently and analyzed several scenarios to prepare for the fall season. This included developing health and safety protocols, revising team formation, and creating contingency plans. We also prepared a Return to Play plan that was dependent upon Washington County moving to Phase 2, the availability of fields and other things outside of our control.

The health and well-being of our children, volunteers, coaches, referees and parents must be our top priority. While we are heartbroken of our decision, we have been thoughtful and deliberate in our discussions and judgment. You have our commitment to leverage this downtime to strategize for a better soccer season in the year 2021.

I am thankful and commend our Board of Directors and partners such as the Tualatin Hills Junior Soccer League (THJSL) for their forward-thinking and open-mindedness while making tough decisions in a complex moment such as a worldwide pandemic. Karen Pratt, Diana Pennington, Laurie Holm, Adam Rogowicz, Crystal Arn and Eric Anderson, thank you for your daily devotion and dedication to develop and nurture the love of Soccer in the Sherwood community. I appreciate you all.

Within the next few days we will start canceling all waitlisted registrations for players and coaches. Keep connected with us on Facebook, Instagram and our website. We look forward to seeing you all on the fields in 2021!
