Spring Season 2020 Cancellation Options!

The Region 195 Board met via teleconference earlier this week and we determined that it was in the best interest of our kids, our volunteers, and our community to cancel the 2020 spring season. Coming to this decision was not easy but it ultimately boiled own to the safety of our kids and volunteers.

We also took into account timing and costs. In order for Region 195 to put on a successful program, we would have needed to have kids on the field by June 1st.  Governor Whitmer's extension of the stay-at-home executive order made this an unrealistic target. Any later than that and we would have run into issues with overlapping the upcoming fall season. There also were a number of sunk costs and prepaid expenses that were earmarked for the spring that are unrecoverable. Although these two factors certainly had some influence on our decision, they in no way could outweigh the deciding factor for cancellation: SAFETY.

Cancellation options:

Donation/Credit/Refund: We are going to offer a couple of options for the unused portion of the registration fee for the 2019/2020 season. AYSO has several expenses throughout the year that are meant to cover both the fall and spring portions of our season: uniforms, picture day, the AYSO supplemental insurance and membership fee, as well as training and supplies for our volunteer coaches and referees. Many of these expenses occur in the fall but are meant to cover the entire AYSO fiscal year. After all costs and unrecoverable expenditures, the refund amount will be $20 per player. 

There are three options:

A.)  Donation: You can choose to forego your refund or credit in the form of a tax-deductible donation to Region 195 that will go towards supplies and upgraded equipment for future seasons. If you choose this option, there is no action required on your part. Region 195's tax ID number for use when reporting the donation is 95-6205398.

B.)  Credit: (*Returning Players Only) Region 195 families can apply a $20/player credit towards the 2020/2021 season during the registration process. *This is meant for players that were registered for Fall 2019/Spring 2020 season, but did not get to play Spring 2020. We all want our kids to grow and learn life lessons through Sports. Soccer will come back, it is just a matter of time! During these times of new normals, we want to show our passion for Sports and the community by offering this option. For credit, reference Coupon Code:  GetYourKICKS-MY2020/2021-NAP4006
