COVID-19 Update (5/15/2020)

As we start looking at the loosening of restrictions (for IFC) it likely brings questions, concerns and unknowns. So on behalf of the Board, I wanted to take a moment and let everyone know how we are handling reintegration of club activities.

We are and will continue to utilize Indiana Soccer League (ISL) as our main guide through this. ISL along with the CDC and Indiana government are working around the clock and adjusting plans and dates as deemed appropriate. So please understand any and all guidance we provide could change as their guidance changes. We are not only part of the ISL league but our insurance is also carried through them. So we need to be sure to follow their procedures and plans.

This Return to Activity notice from Indiana Soccer will provide you with the updates as they become available. We will also try to summarize the changes by email and send them out to you highlighting the changes.

As you will see in the guidance it requires we all work together to help keep our families as safe as possible.

June Tryouts are scheduled for the Week of June 22, 5:30 – 7 pm at Cedar Lake Ministries fields. 

The board will continue to diligently follow this fast-developing situation.  We will communicate with you timely as more information is known and guidance received from the ISL and other authoritative bodies.  Please remain diligent as you go about your day to day activities and follow the CDC’s illness prevention recommendations – coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/ prevention-treatment.html.

I also wanted to take a moment and recognize our board members who have been meeting remotely frequently (some times multiple times a week) to adapt, plan and work through these times. These board members have given countless hours to keep things moving forward.

So special thank you to:
Steve Lindahl
Ken DeVries
Aj Turkstra
Saul Garcia
Christy Ruffin
Beth McNinch

Dan Wondaal
IFC President

In times like this, we are reminded of apostle Paul’s direction in  Romans 12:12, “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”  There will be much to pray about in the coming weeks, but we know that our God provides and as a soccer community there is much to be thankful for and to remain joyful.
