Dear ATL Futsal families,
We hope this email finds you in good health during these uncertain times. We are reaching out as we want to give you all an update on the future of ATL Futsal and what we are looking to do during these times.
Currently, all activities and programs remain closed and will remain as such until the appropriate authorities indicate it is safe to resume play. USYF recent statement regarding Covid-19 can be found here
Whilst the future is uncertain and is providing us all with unprecedented challenges, there is a lot to be optimistic and hopeful for. ATL Futsal remains committed to growing the sport in the region and will continue to offer programs that put families and players first.
There are no immediate plans to restructure our program or staff in great detail but as with all organizations, remaining prudent and vigilant to a constantly changing environment.
Our plan is to resume our National Academy program, camps and clinics as soon as we can but we also understand that parents will have a lot of other aspects to consider once there is a resumption in activities. Our aim is to have National Academy evaluations take place in September.
We do not want to restart the same time as soccer as we understand, soccer activities will be a bit hectic once we get the all-clear to return to the field of play.
In the meantime, we will be resuming our weekly Futsal Five newsletter each Friday in order to provide parents and players with the opportunity to look at videos, practice ideas and such during the quarantine.
For our college bound players or those who are about to start applying for college during the 2020-2021 academic year, we want to offer you the opportunity to connect with ATL Futsal leadership to ask questions and gain advice should you wish to do so. We are committed to assisting players and want to lend a helping hand and a listening ear.
For everyone else, following the receipt of your individual player evaluation form, please reach out to us and let us know what your thoughts were in order for us to have a dialogue with you.
We want to hear what you thought of the feedback and if you agree/disagree and what measures you have taken to develop areas that need attention and what you plan to build on aspects you are strong in.
There is a small group of players that have yet to receive an evaluation, you should expect this in the next week or so.
We look forward to seeing you all back on the court and wish you and yours safety and good health during these times.
Should you have any questions/concerns or queries, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
