The Brockville Soccer Club is planning to launch a condensed 2021 house league season on July 7 when Stage Two of the province’s latest COVID-19 recovery plan is expected to be in effect. Youth soccer programs in Prescott and Athens are not running this summer; some organizations in the area had yet to announce their plans for 2021 as of Friday morning.

The Brockville club is asking parents or players to register and pay by Monday. There will be an in-person session at the Laurier fields clubhouse on Sunday morning from 9 until noon. Face masks are required. The club is encouraging parents and players to register online and then pay at the clubhouse on Sunday if paying online is an issue.

To sign up or for more information about the 2021 program, visit brockvillesoccer.com or check out the club’s Facebook page. Brockville is not running competitive teams this season.

In addition to offering house league, there are several soccer camps planned for Brockville in July and August. Among them is the first annual Shane Geraghty Soccer Camp, which will be held at the Laurier fields in Brockville on July 12-15 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. There are three age groups: under 8, under 11 and under 14.

Local coaches will conduct drills to improve skills “and the love of the game,” according to a promotional flyer. There will also be fun games. Participants are to bring their own lunches and sunscreen. The clubhouse will be open for washrooms and water.

There are two other soccer camps planned for July and one in August. More details can be found on the club’s website.

As of Friday, when Stage One of the Ontario plan went into effect, “outdoor sports training,” fitness classes and personal training in gatherings of no more than 10 people are permitted. No games or practices are allowed. Stage Two, which would not take effect for at least 21 days, would allow “outdoor sports games, leagues and events.”
