Summer Clinics - WFFSC will set up some clinics this summer for various gender/age groups for those players that have applied for the Competitive Program for next year. First ones are given below. More may be added. These clinics allow the players to get a workout this summer, especially after being sidelined due to COVID for many weeks. It also allows the coaches to know the playes and vice-versa. The competitive coaches anticipated for next year will be assisting with the clinics so this provides information to them on how best to form teams. So if your child wants to play in the age group please try and have them participate in the clinic. All clinics are held at Winslow and there is no charge for them. The clinics will run through July and hopefully continue into August.

College Scholarship Application for 2020 Graduates is now available here. Application is due by July 15.
RETURN TO PLAY
With RI moving to Phase II and the state providing guidelines for Youth Sports, WFFSC will begin to allow some activities to return starting with individual team practices as long as they meet the guidelines. This includes limits on groups to 15, coaches wear masks, everyone has hand sanitizer, nobody has any symptoms of sickness, practice social distancing when possible including parents, etc. It will be different but at least it is a start.
The guidelines are given in the following document for WFFSC that relies on the other documents especially the ones from Soccer RI and RI Reopening.
Since the Governor has canceled schools for the remainder of the academic year WFFSC has decided to cancel both Spring Rec and Spring Competitive programs. Refunds are being processed. This is certainly sad for everyone involved. We hope to be able to have some activities this summer.

SRI AWARD WINNERS
WFFSC is pleased to have the following individuals win recognition awards from Soccer RI for 2020.
Mark Laurie will be inducted into the SRI Hall of Fame. Mark has been an integral member of WFFSC for over 30 years. He started coaching his kids and joined the board. He has been on the WFFSC Board for over 25 years. For many years Mark was the Referee Coordinator for WFFSC, back in the day when communication was done with phone calls. Mark would spend entire evenings call refs and confirming schedules. However, the biggest contribution to WFFSC is that Mark took on the responsibility of Field Director for Winslow Park. The agreement with the City of Warwick when the original Winslow Park was built in the 1990's was that the city would build the fields but WFFSC would maintain them. This includes cutting the grass, lining the fields, trash removal, goals, nets, irrigation, fertilizing, etc. For the past dozen years, Mark has been responsible for all of this work. While he may not be as well-known as others at WFFSC he is one of the most important. When you go to Winslow and the grass is nice and cut and fields lined and goals ready that is all due to Mark. He volunteers a tremendous number of hours so that the kids can play. WFFSC is highly indebted to him for his efforts. Mark was nominated for the SRI Hall of Fame and I am very proud to say he was awarded this significant recognition for his many years of service to this club.
Joe Caldeira was nominated and awarded the Male Coach of the Year. Joe has been coaching for 10 years starting when his kids were very young. Joe coached both girls and boys teams for many years. Joe has also been a member of the board for the past 6-8 years.
Congratulations to these two members of WFFSC for their dedication to the club. It is members such as these that allow the club to be successful and provide an opportunity for the kids to play soccer.
