Hello Cutler Ridge Soccer Parents,
We hope you are all managing these difficult times with some level of comfort. I know that it has been challenging for everyone.
As I'm sure you know, Miami-Dade and Broward counties are now allowing public parks to re-open; however, parks in the Town of Cutler Bay, including Cutler Ridge Park and Lakes by the Bay Park, are not yet open to public congregation. At this time, the parks in Cutler Bay are scheduled to re-open on May 18th, with the real possibility of that date being extended. When the parks do re-open, new guidelines will need to be created and followed, because restrictions will undoubtedly be placed on the amount of people who are allowed to gather at the same time. Our top priority is always the safety and well-being of our players.
Due to the ongoing closure of parks and cancellation of programming, coaching fees for May will be handled in the same manner as in April. It will not be mandatory to pay your coach, but if you are in a position to be able to pay, it would be appreciated.
With regard to the upcoming season, each registered, competitive player will receive an e-mail or text from the coach in charge of their age group. At this point, we do not know when tryouts can begin, but we will keep you updated as to dates, times and locations. The tryout process will include all players of the same age group. If you played on a B team last season, you will be given the same opportunity, as every other player, to make this year's A team. Keep practicing and stay as sharp as possible.
I would like to thank Coach Doug, Coach Ferny and Coach Anthony for posting training videos on social media to keep our players engaged; we hope you have found them helpful. I also want to thank all the players who have participated in our "pass the ball" series. Our goal is to get every CRS player and coach on camera.
To all the medical workers and first responders who are part of the CRS family, thank you for working tirelessly on the front lines during this crisis; we honor you.
The last two months have been very taxing for everyone but, I know, as individuals and as a club, we will be made stronger, more resourceful and more resilient.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.
We'll see you soon,
Director of Coaching
