Return to Play Plan

From the Board of Directors:

 As a follow-up to our newsletter of June 11, 2020, we are pleased to report that the York Region Public Health unit is now allowing us to move into Phase 1 of the Ontario Soccer’s “Return to Play” plan Friday June 19, 2020.  This means that during the first phase of soccer for the summer there will be no player contact, social distancing is maintained, individual training with a coach, no group drills and no league or exhibition games.

As we return to a normal soccer environment over the summer period we will be a implementing a very controlled process day to day, week to week, to integrate soccer back into our facility following the Public Health Units directives and adhering strictly to the Ontario Soccer “Return to Play” plan.  These phases of play as outlined in the plan will be constantly monitored and adjusted based on Public Health Unit directives and guidelines.

This week we launched and are providing in conjunction with Tim Bits and TFC a virtual Active Start Training Program (4 to 7 years of age) to keep your children active and engaged as we start up soccer again at the Toronto Azzurri Soccer Club.  Please note this virtual program does not replace the summer program being launched July 3, 2020 but provides skill and technique activities for children between the ages of 4 and 7 years of age.  If you would like to participate in this virtual six week program please contact Louise Garneau-Ross at

As long as your son or daughter is registered for the 2020 Outdoor Season there is no charge to be part of this virtual program. 

In following the Public Health Units directives we have already implemented very progressive and deliberate steps to ensure all safety practices and protocols are in place at the Club.  On arrival at the club you will witness a number of new changes and initiatives.  They are all geared towards enhancing the health and well-being of our players, coaches, match officials and parents.  The Ontario Soccer “Return to Play” plan will provide us with the tools and resources needed to ensure we constantly and consistently maintain a safe environment for everyone at the Toronto Azzurri Soccer Club.

If you have not yet registered for the 2020 season now knowing that strict guidelines and controls will be in place for safety purposes, we encourage you to register your daughter or son.

It is good to see that progress is being made in reinstating all aspects of community activities.  Working together we will have a different type of summer soccer season this year however please be assured we will provide the best programs and services that we can at Toronto Azzurri Soccer Club.

More details will follow this week! 

Take Care!  Be Safe!  Social Distance!
