Hello WDMSC Rec and Academy Families
We hope this message finds you safe and healthy. As stated in our previous email, the Iowa Soccer Association has officially ended the regular spring season but has left the door open for clubs to create a summer season. We understand that this may not fit the needs of your family. Please complete this SURVEY choosing to play in the proposed summer season, refund, or donate. A survey will need to be completed for each player in a family. Responses must be provided no later than Friday, May 1, 2020
If you choose refund on the survey, we will start completing FULL REFUNDS immediately. We are also waiving the $10 admin fee. Thank you for being patient as we tried to work out possible playing solutions during the ever evolving pandemic. We hope the fall brings back normalcy and a return to the fields.
Another choice you can make is to donate all or a certain dollar amount of your fees to the Club. The Board believes it is in best interest of our players and families in these stressful times to reimburse the $10 admin fee and provide a FULL REFUND. We care about our families within the club and appreciate your membership! While the canceling of the season was a necessary decision, just like many businesses, it will have future impacts on the Club's finances and programming. Much of the admin work for the spring had already been done. Our largest expense is fields which continue to need to be maintained whether we play or not. Any donation amount to the club would be greatly appreciated!
