July 2020 Update for all parents & players

Hello parents and players,

This message to all players who have registered for Riptide assessments for the 2020-2021 season of play.  Wanted to provide a quick update on the situation before we get into the summer months.  

First off, thank-you to all of our players  who represented the Riptide club this past season your effort, enthusiasm and commitment were much appreciated.  Also to new players and the U14 players who have registered for assessments, we thank you for your interest in our program.

  • No coaches for Riptide teams for 2020-2021 have been named and no new candidates for coaching positions have been interviewed
  • Given the uncertainty with VIPL in Lower Island we are not exactly sure what the future of the league will look like for this coming season, our hope is that VIPL continues
  • Given the impact of Covid-19 on soccer, we are not sure at this moment what the Return to Play scenario would or could look like for Riptide players and our four feeder clubs

There is hope that all players of all levels are back on the field playing the beautiful game sooner than later and we remain optimistic in my thinking.

Thank all of you for your interest in the Riptide program and would like to advise you that future correspondence will be sent to you through the Upper Island Soccer Association (UISA) which governs the game in the upper island region. Hopefully we will see you all on the field before long, best wishes and stay healthy!

If you have any questions, please send through to upperislandsocceroffice@gmail.com

Sincerely,

Upper Island Riptide
