Dear Rec families,
Due to this unprecedented time of COVID19 still being a major concern for our families, community and CGU board, we are deeply saddened to inform all REC families that we are canceling the Spring Rec session that was supposed to start by May 18th. With the state lockdown still in place and the potential of opening in limited waves, the CGU board has made this difficult decision with safety of our kids and families safe as our determining factor in this decision.
The club will be refunding all the registration costs, we are working with NGIN to process them as soon as possible.
With that being said we are hopeful our summer program will start in July. The registration link will open by the end of the week. Once we get the green light on youth sports we will be able to get the kids back on the fields.
CGU will remain committed to looking into providing additional opportunities for our families to enjoy the game of soccer. An additional opportunity that the CGU board is currently looking into is the possibility of a Fall REC session. If we can get the field space we hope to have it start the 1st week of September after Labor Day. More to come on this opportunity in the near future.
Thank you for your continued support and the entire CGU Board wishes everyone the best and be well and safe.
If you have any questions please let me know;
CGU Rec Families,
As we continue to navigate these unprecedented times together, we wish to provide an update on the CGU Rec spring season. Given that the Minnesota governor has extended a shutdown of public gathering places through May 4th, a start to the rec season on May 4 isn't going to happen. We are looking into the possibility of pushing the rec program out 2 weeks if the shutdown is lifted by the 4th.
If the governor delays the shutdown any further than the 4th of May then unfortunately the spring session will be canceled and fully refunded. The registration for our summer session will open and then we will look into the possibility of having a Fall session that will play on the weekends.
Now for our coaching needs, we have 40 spring teams and only 19 coaches for all age groups. There is only 1 age group that doesn’t need coaches. With that being said we need really need more parents to volunteer to coach. Once we get the go ahead to play we want to be ready to go.
The uniforms are ordered and ready to be numbered. I will begin to send emails to all of you asking if you are able to coach. Please consider coaching, we really need your participation.
Our new Director of coaches- Howard Rushton has 3 sessions planned for our coaches and rec kids planned for the spring. I am excited to say we have never had this much planned for our rec program.
We all look forward to getting outdoors and on the fields.
If you have any questions regarding the Rec program please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lynn Mitchell-Rec Director
