COVID-19 Update; London-Middlesex moves to Red Tier

To the BMO Soccer Community –

We are saddened to announce, that based on the additional restrictions imposed with London-Middlesex moving into the red tier of the COVID response framework, the following changes will take effect as of Monday, Dec. 14th at 12:01am:
 

SWISL Youth Co-Ed and Adult Leagues
(Men’s, Women’s, Co-Ed & Men’s Masters) will be paused until further notice.

 

Should we be unable to resume by February 1st, 2021, teams and players will be provided with a prorated refund. If tiers and restrictions have improved by this date and we are able to resume, we will be able to complete the full season and reschedule games into April 2021.

BMO Academy

As the BMO Academy program is a training program, we will be able to complete the final week this Tuesday (Dec. 15th). Age groups will be spread out over multiple fields to ensure guidelines are met, and groups will not exceed 10 people.

Casual Rentals

Casual rentals currently booked as of Monday, Dec. 14th and onward will be cancelled and provided with an account credit. If you would like to request a refund, please email info@bmocentrelondon.com.

Club Rentals (Ontario Soccer Members)

Club rentals booked to date will be honored, as you are still welcome to the space so long as new restrictions are maintained. We are offering a modified price of $100 per hour (tax inclusive). You are permitted to have a maximum of 10 people per group (including coaches) for training only, groups cannot inter-mingle and games/scrimmages are not permitted. If you would like to cancel any club bookings, please contact our Administration Office (info@bmocentrelondon.com).

Once again and as always, we are incredibly thankful for your patience and understanding during these challenging times. We hope that you are all staying well and hope to be able to safely welcome you back in 2021.

With Many Thanks,

The BMO Centre London Management Team
