What's Next for FSA? 


May 13, 2020:

Farmington Sports Arena scheduled to re-open June 29, 2020

As somewhat anticipated, the re-opening of Farmington Sports Arena does not meet the State of Connecticut sector rules for a May 20th re-open.

The health and well-being of our players and families are the priority of FSA and we will continue to look to the State of Connecticut and the Centers of Disease Control (CDC) for guidance on when and how to re-open safely. 

FSA will refund Winter 3 leagues and clinics in the form of a credit for missed games or training sessions. This is an unprecedented event, please be patient as we organize how we will navigate this task. (As of 5/25 all accounts have been updated with credits for Winter 3 Leagues and Clinics)

The current State of Connecticut guideline will permit the facility to re-open effective June 29, 2020. This date may change as the state and CDC recommendations change, however, for planning purposes, we are using June 29th   as a target date to allow for scheduling of summer leagues and camps.

The response to re-opening has been extremely positive with teams/players excited about resuming play. We are encouraging people to sign up and will issue a credit in the same form of payment if State or CDC recommend an alternate re-open date. 

FSA is currently implementing recommendations to protect our spectators and players.  To date, policies will include strict cleaning and disinfection protocols in all settings, temperature check stations, limiting of spectators and requiring masks for non-participants.  As the CDC releases additional guidance, please continue to look on our website for updates prior to visiting our facility.

FSA remains optimistic as we deal with the effects of COVID-19. We appreciate your support and hope to find our FSA families healthy and back on the field soon. 

For COVID-19 questions, individuals can call the State hotline, 2-1-1 for information.

The health and well-being of our players and families are the priority of FSA. We are looking to Connecticut and the Center of Disease Control (CDC) guidelines regarding when and how to open safely. The current plan for FSA's reopening will coincide with Connecticut's Phase One reopening, tentatively scheduled for May 20thThis date may change as the state and CDC recommendations change, however, for planning purposes, we are using May 20th as a target date to allow for rescheduling of Winter 3 leagues and clinics.  

The leagues and clinics will be moved to our outdoor facilities where social distancing requirements can be accommodated. FSA is currently implementing recommended protocols to protect our spectators and players.  To date, policies will include temperature check stations, limiting spectators and requiring masks for non-participants.  As the CDC releases additional guidance, please continue to look on our website for updates prior to visiting our facility.

The response to rescheduling has been extremely positive with teams/players excited about the state’s reopening and FSA’s leagues and clinics continuing. Refunds are not currently being offered as everything will be rescheduled once the state reopens.  If you prefer that your team is not included in the remaining schedule please let us know so that we can prepare an accurate schedule for teams looking to finish up the Winter 3 Season.

April 29, 2020:

We hope this note finds you safe and healthy. With the anticipated reopening of FSA set for May 20 we wanted to update everyone regarding Winter 3 leagues and clinics. We will be rescheduling all games and clinics to occur the end of May and through the month of June. In the best interest of our staff and customers, the indoor facility will remain closed and rescheduled events will take place on the outdoor fields (fields will be lined to match the size of the indoor fields).

 

We are excited to be able to get back on the pitch and provide the safest experience possible for both players and spectators. More information will be forthcoming once schedules are in place and information regarding health and safety guidelines will be provided. 

 

While we are working to reschedule please let your team know of our plans to restart. We will update the website with this information and any new information to come. Once schedules have been revised we will send another email notification to teams and clinic participants.

 

The only cancellation we currently have is for the Adult Spring Indoor League. We will be reaching out to those teams registered over the next couple weeks to coordinate refunds.

 

All Summer Camps and Summer Leagues will continue as scheduled at this point.

 

Thank you all for your patience during this time and we look forward seeing everybody back on the field.

 

Be safe!

FSA
