This virus won't ruin our fun, it is just going to delay it a little bit. We have packed away the merchandise, banners, prizes, and have it all ready to go as soon as we all get back to our new normal.
We are completely dependent upon the parks and rec department to be able to reschedule the April, Women's and May, Coed Events. Once they are able to grant permits for events and have given us the dates and fields we can use we will lock it down and announce it here, there, and everywhere in between. We will continue on with the November event as is and scheduling the other three events sometime after Labor Day Weekend and Early December (dates pending park approval).
When will the new dates be announced?
Will we be refunded?
We were forced to postpone these events due to the current situation. This is a completely uncontrollable and unpredictable situation we continued business as usual in early February before this all became a real situation in the USA. This means that everything was paid for (as usual) in preparation for these events.....So on top of having a ton of merchandise & other stuff that we can't use right now or get refunded on, the other challenges include "office closed until further notice" and so on... Do you see where I am going here?
We are a small nonprofit business that has been hit very hard here but it won't stop us. We have applied several ways for relief, which is extremely hard to get right now, but we will continue to try.
How will we be notified of new dates?
It will be posted here, on all of our social media, and emailed to everyone registered.
What are the potential reschedule dates?
Every weekend after Labor Day until early December is a possibility at this point. We applied for all the weekends because there are several factors involved.....
We are at the mercy of the parks dept here. We are also not the only business that needs to reschedule. Every local event was canceled, they will all be requesting dates just like us.....
Once granted potential weekends we will make decisions on what dates the tournaments will take place based on the field locations available, number of fields we are allowed to use based on whatever the new rules are for gathering, etc etc etc.
AS SOON AS WE KNOW YOU WILL KNOW.
In the past the parks require us apply for permits no later than May 1 for permits ranging from August - December, with approval or denial letters being sent until sometime in August which is why the registration never opens until September for the November tournament.... With this happening we don't know when they will re-open, we don't know if they will get a jump on it and work fast to accommodate everyone and let us know earlier than usual. We simply don't know anything.....
Women's I & Women's II
Assuming we are granted several weekend options to hold these we will plan accordingly.
The best case scenario is that we could hold them about 3-4 weeks apart giving most of the age based teams 3 different weekend options to attend (Women's I, Women's II, or the November tournament).
You can choose whichever of the three weekends that suits your team best.
Women's I was scheduled to be at Silver Bowl and Women's II at James Regional, will this be the same when rescheduled?
No clue.... Until we have park permits we can't answer this.
Will there be a price difference?
No clue. If the events remain at the initially planned parks then no. If they are at different parks then there could be a possible partial refund/credit issued or potential additional fee (if moving to the nicer parks). Again, we can't answer this right now. If given the opportunity to move the Women's I to the nicer parks we will certainly do that though. Our goal for is for all events to be at the nicer parks, we just aren't in charge of who is granted permits where and when.
What if my team can't make it to any of the postponed tournaments?
We were registered in the Coed Tournament (May 2020) when is this being postponed to?
Will the November tournament still happen?
Luckily as a newer established tournament we have room to expand the number of teams in this event. We will add additional age groups to accommodate the groups left out from the spring events. Once permits are solidified we will update that info on our website.
What is the plan for each of the re-scheduled events?
How do the parks determine who gets permits, when, and where?
When the parks department goes back to work they will have hundreds of permit requests to sort through and will issue permits as they can. Luckily we have been around for 34 years, we have established annual events in these facilities, and as a small nonprofit women owned business we hope we will be prioritized and granted dates we have requested.
Salina, are there any other details you can share with me?
The only thing I can report on for sure is that I will be at least 20lbs heavier at the end of this home quarantine.
There are just no answers right now. I can't do anything without answers from anyone else. It is extremely frustrating and my business is at a total stand still at this moment. What I can say is....
Las Vegas is taking a HUGE hit as a city, 1/3 of the city works in the hotel - tourism - entertainment industry... When these events do finally take place rooms/travel should be VERY affordable!
Our tournaments will continue (hopefully soon after labor day weekend)!
Friendship Soccer Tournaments are not going away! My dad started these in 1985, when he had his stroke it was uncertain what would happen. I made sure that they continued on and have been working tirelessly the past 8 years to make them bigger and better and this won't stop me! If anything this has given me the motivation to do more with these events. There are so many ideas I have wanted to see brought to life at these tournaments, with this down time it has given me the time to apply for sponsors and grants to make some of them come true. Fingers crossed this turns out a blessing in disguise. Stay safe! Thank you for your patience, Salina!
