Note Addressing Soccer Cancellations
Dear Soccer Families

The Point Edward Minor Athletic Association works hard to provide a fun, family friendly soccer program.  Our intention is to provide an atmosphere of sportsmanship, skill development and teamwork. 

Recently, we have had to cancel soccer on a few occasions due to extreme heat warnings and more recently, lightening/storms.  It has come to our attention some families have been unhappy with the cancellations, in particular, the short notice of cancellations.  We apologize for any inconvenience and going forward, will be sure to make these decisions at the earliest opportunity and post the information as it becomes available to us. On a couple of occasions, we waited and hoped for a change in weather. Please keep in mind, our volunteers who organize soccer and make these difficult decisions have jobs and families and are sometimes unable to immediately connect with one another while juggling their many other responsibilities. 


If you have any questions or concerns regarding a cancellation or our soccer program in general, please direct your inquiries to our website.  Our Coaches are most generous with their time and are doing a fantastic job, they should not have to feel responsible for any frustration around cancellations. 


We will do our best to provide at least 30 minutes notice prior to game time for future cancellations.  Cancellations will continue to be posted on the Point Minor facebook page and website.   Coaches may send out emails however, please check our facebook page if you are concerned about a potential cancellation. 


It has been a great season, let’s finish on a positive note!
