Due to extreme heat, we will be cancelling the U9 games (boys and girls) this evening. We hope to see everyone out next Monday for our final game!
To Our Corunna Community,
We are excited to be days away from a long-awaited season to start to play and feel a bit more normal.
We are all looking forward to sharing this experience in a positive way. There are a few things that are not going to be 100% perfect post pandemic. We hope you continue with your patience, flexibility and support as we start up and push for a very successful fun season.
We require a lot of volunteers to make this program successful and I have been doing this a long time here in Corunna. I have had many roles and multiple ones at the same time over the past 15 plus years with the Corunna soccer club. I can assure you that without the volunteers, like my committee now and all their hard work, all of this would not be possible.
We, as a committee, are:
- A President
- A Vice president
- A Secretary
- A Treasurer, Registrar and Webmaster (one person performing 3 roles)
- Conveners for each age division (many positions above are also performing the convener roles)
I would like to give them a big ‘Thank You’ shout out to Corunna Soccer Club Committee.
To give you some background, these committee members have many roles and have families of their own. In most cases, their own kids have passed through the years as players in our club and exited after divisions were no longer available for their age. Even though the committee members do not have active youth in the program, they continue to volunteer to ensure the youth of today have somewhere to play. This commitment keeps our soccer club running.
We do multiple roles at one time whether it’s being a convener, acquiring coaches’ equipment, maintenance of equipment, deliveries, coordinate schedules, recruit other coaches etc.. the list goes on.
We understand everyone has busy lives and work schedules however we do need volunteers to help. We always look to our community for support. Please get in touch if you are interested in helping out.
We will also be running low on Referees/leads this year as a post pandemic has not allowed for regular certification. Our Leaders this year will be volunteering and multi-tasking. I remind you all that these community youth are just that, members of our community and need to be treated respectfully. If we do not have a referee for scheduled game, we ask that you help support and direct the game as needed. We will do our best to keep our convenors informed as best as possible when a game will go without a support lead.
President of Corunna Soccer and the Hard-Working Committee
To our Soccer Family,
We hope everyone is staying cool with this heat wave. We want to thank you all for your continued support and understanding as we push forward towards our 2021 season. We are very excited to be back in action as we are sure our players are too.
Due to the challenges that presented themselves with COVID and registration numbers being on the decline this year, we’ve had to completely reorganize the age groups. We feel that this was the best alternative to keeping our players and games local to Corunna.
The revised structure is as follows:
U6 Division (Boys and Girls) – Birth years 2015-2017
Dates/Times: Tuesday nights starting at 6:15-7:00pm
Location: Large fields at CAP (Corunna athletic Park) Colborne St Entrance
U9 Division – Birth years 2012-2014
Dates/Times: Monday and Wednesday nights starting at 7:00pm-8:00pm
Location: Girl’s at CAP (Corunna athletic park) at Queens St entrance, Boy’s at Parkdale Park Corunna
U13 Division COED – Birth years 2008-2011
Dates/Times: Tuesday and Thursday nights starting at 7:00pm-8:00pm
Location: Parkdale Park Corunna
Schedules for the age groups will be posted later this week game nights will be starting July 12th through August 31
In the next few days, we will be working very hard to ensure we are able to start next week (July 12). Some of our supplies may still be in transportation but we would still like to see everyone out on your start date ready to kick a ball around meet the coach and team players. As uniforms and supplies arrive, we will get them to you as quickly as we can.
This week our volunteer convenors will be reaching out to our parents to help recruit some volunteer coaches for our teams.
Please continue to monitor the website up until the start night of your player to stay informed of any new information regarding the 2021 soccer season.
As well, please navigate the website for field locations and to keep informed on the inclement weather policy.
To Our Soccer Community,
We appreciate your on-going patience and understanding.
Ontario Soccer has allowed us the go ahead as we head into Phase 2.
However, we are awaiting on the approval of Lambton Public Health. In the meantime, we are proceeding with organizing our start to play.
Our tentative start date will be the week of July 12th. We will keep you posted!
To Our Soccer Family,
We are appreciative of your support and interest in us offering our soccer program for the 2021 season.
The executive is in good spirits as we transition into Step 1 with the province’s reopening plan and are grateful that it started ahead of schedule. This gives us a glimpse of hope that we will proceed to Step 2 which will allow our program to function with our new guidelines and procedures stipulated by the province and Ontario Soccer, our governing body. Please note that if Step 2 proceeds on or before July 15th, we are looking to jump right into our 2021 season. Should we not proceed due to the province’s direction, we will have to close our season for another year at which point we will be in touch with you.
Whichever way this season proceeds, we continue to ask you for your patience and understanding as we sort out our new guidelines, decisions and its process.
We again Thank You all for all of your support and loyalty to the sport of soccer and our club.
Corunna Soccer Community,
We hope you are all enjoying this wonderful weather and staying safe.
We are patiently waiting for updates from the province regarding our 2021 soccer season and when team sports can resume.
As mentioned at the start of registration, we appreciate your patience going forward as we navigate this new normal.
Our intentions are to keep you updated as soon as we have more information to share.
Registration closes at midnight on April 15, 2021
We are happy to announce that outdoor registration is now open!
We will be opening up registration for our summer soccer program by April 1, 2021 and running until April 15, 2021. The cost will be $140 per player. Season dates are yet to be finalized but we are attempting to provide a 12 week program (pending Ontario Health Regulations, Ontario Soccer Regulations etc.)

To our Soccer Community,
We hope you are all doing well and staying safe. We have appreciated your patience and support over this past year. It has been a challenging one for our players.
We are quickly approaching our soccer season and while planning for a safe and successful return to play, we want to let you know that the safety of parents and players is paramount.
Going forward with our season will present new formats and new guidelines (adhering to the Ministry of Health as well as the Ontario Soccer guidelines which changes as time goes on). This will present limitations and restrictions as to how soccer in Corunna and surrounding areas will function.
Some example areas that will likely be affected are: costs, number of players, time, dates, and the general structure of game. We cannot stress enough that this is a new format to all of us so patience and understanding is necessary and appreciated. We are hoping to receive this support from the parents, players, as well as the community.
As we all know our seasons’ success in Corunna is very important to all of us, however, it is not possible if our number of players remains low. This includes the extra volunteers that we need to run our programs. Without this extra assistance, we aren’t able to have a successful season.
We are working on the details and we will be in touch when we are able to provide more concrete expectations from all parties. Thank you for your continued support and patience!
