April 25, 2020 Update:
When we put our Spring 2020 season on hold in mid-March, we had high hopes of restarting our programs once the Coronavirus crisis dissipated. As of today, US Soccer sanctioned activities remain suspended through April 30, and New York State remains under a stay-at-home order through at least May 15. Given the standard timeline for these programs and the continued uncertain outlook, the Board of Directors of the Port Washington Soccer Club has regrettably determined that it is best to cancel the Spring 2020 season.
As a result of this cancellation, we are going to offer our members that were registered for a Spring 2020 program (travel, intertown, intramural) two options:
(i) full refunds (including cancellation of remaining payments, if applicable) for the Spring 2020 season;
(ii) reduced refunds (including cancellation of remaining payments, if desired) with the option to donate all or a portion of the refund to our trainers who are in financial need due to the loss of their expected Spring 2020 season compensation.
We are calling this fundraising initiative PWSC Cares, and we are trying to raise at least $100K to help these families in this difficult time. Please click here for more details about the refunds and PWSC Cares program.
March 12, 2020 Announcement:
In light of the ongoing local/national/global issues with respect to Coronavirus, the Board of Directors of the Port Washington Soccer Club has determined that, effective immediately, all club-related activities (practices, games, etc.) will be suspended temporarily, pending further notice. As with the rest of our community, we will continue to actively monitor and assess this situation and will make further determinations and announcements as needed. In the meantime, we send our best wishes to the entire community, and please stay safe.
As a nonprofit organization serving our community, we are proud to bring our travel and intertown teams online training this spring, via Zoom online video conferencing. Thanks to our club's Director of Coaching, Gerneil "Jigsy" Lorne, for immediately responding to the suspension of schools and youth sports activities (including PWSC activities) by piloting several training sessions during the week of March 16. After immediate and amazing feedback, we realized this was something that could be rolled out by Jigsy and our team trainers to all of our travel and intertown teams, with training by their primary trainers in many instances.
To be clear, there is NO ADDITIONAL FEE to our teams for this service - both Jigsy and the trainers are also confined to their homes in many instances, and they just want to help get the kids active, occupied and stay a bit connected with their soccer families during these difficult times. We are grateful as a club and a community for their generosity and caring.
As for suspension of spring season activities, we ask that all families remain patient as the club's volunteer board evaluates options (refunds, etc.) regarding cancelled events and programs.
Great question! There's several ways to join, via web browser, phone, or smart device app. Rather than explaining all the ways, please download the Zoom app or visit the following Zoom help page for specific instructions:
