East End Community Club has made the difficult decision to cancel the soccer program for players aged 12 and under.

We had initially made the decision to cancel all volunteering sessions, and had refunded by cheque, family's volunteer fees. That is, families who had chosen a volunteer option - canteen, bingo, baseball diamond clean up, etc, were refunded. Those cheques were processed over the past three weeks.

If you had the opportunity to volunteer before the community club closed, you also should have received your volunteer fee back.

If you had selected that you did not want to volunteer, then no cheque would have been sent out. Your volunteer fee will be refunded with your registration fees.

Now that the season for the younger players has been cancelled, the balance of fees have been refunded in the form in which is was paid. That is, if you paid by credit card, the balance will be refunded by credit card. If you paid by cash or cheque, a cheque will be mailed out. Credit card refunds can take up to 5 - 10 business days.

Soccer for the 13 and older players is still 'pending'. We are still waiting for a decision to be made by the Manitoba Soccer Association.
