    Message to Parents and Guardians

    All,

    As sent out yesterday… The VSC has been in contact with Town officials to determine the best course of action for our outdoor activities based on the spread of the EEE virus throughout CT and other States. The Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station (CAES) has identified an Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) infected mosquito in the Town of South Windsor.

     

    The health and welfare of our club members is of our utmost importance. Based on today’s feedback and the information currently available we have decided that all outside soccer activities will end by 6:00 pm. We are doing this as a measure of protection for our members.

     

    As we continue to monitor the weather conditions relative to mosquitoes, these precautions will take effect immediately on Thursday September 26th and are to remain in place until further notice.

     

    Our soccer fields see a massive amount of practices and games each season so it's a big job to readjust and we're working hard to make things as smooth as possible.   We are asking all coaches to work together to run practices at VCMS and Legion Fields where able. Additionally, practice time will be allotted on weekends. All players are encouraged to practice with whatever team or coach is available, based on who can be at fields early.

    These changes are NOT currently shown in your Team Connect app and will take some time to update.  Many coaches will be reading this at the same time you are, so please be patient as everyone is adjusting to these changes and figuring out where they can help.

     

    Please check our website and your messages before departing to the fields each day for the next few weeks. Should things change with the situation we will make immediate changes to our scheduled events and return to our traditional schedule.

    The below messages were sent out by the Town of Vernon and Vernon Public Schools. We would ask that you review the necessary precautions to keep your family safe.  Parents/Guardians may always use their discretion and not allow their child to participate in an outdoor activity.
