Updated June 22, 2020 - The Rec Soccer Season for U9 – U12 participants at DCC has been cancelled

The Boni-vital Soccer Club Conveners, including DCC’s Soccer Convener Pram Tappia confirmed the difficult decision to cancel today after looking for way for all to play since the province approved WYSA’s Return to Play plan for soccer.  

“Unfortunately, timing and extension of COVID-19 restrictions well into our rec playing season, as well as the continued uncertainty regarding precautions necessary to ensure the safety of our participants, left us with little option but to cancel this season”, said Pram.  “We want to thank everyone for your patience and understanding during this time and apologize for any disappointment that we know will occur with many of the children who were eager to play soccer this season.”

All registrants are being contacted regarding the cancellation process and options to receive refunds for registration fees paid.  Due to the high volume of refund requests at DCC, processing of these refunds can take up to 4 – 6 weeks to appear on credit card statements.  Thank you for your continued patience.

Note: U12 registrants have also been provided with the option to age advance to rec U13 teams if interested.  These requests are being handled by Pram Tappia, DCC Soccer Convener by emailing him at soccer@dakotacc.com
