Posted by Metuchen Soccer Club on Aug 21 2020 at 10:29AM PDT

This fall the Metuchen Soccer Club is offering In-town Soccer play for K-12. Building off our successful summer soccer camp sessions we will offer soccer play from September 24th thru October 31st

Background:
We anticipate Covid-19 to continue to have an impact on our community until the time a vaccine is available. To that end we are offering a program we consider to be the safest considering our current environment. While our In-town soccer program does not eliminate the possibility of exposure to Covid-19…

  • it does offer our club the opportunity to more closely manage exposure to possible Covid-19 situations
  • reduces probability of exposure to Covid-19
  • reduces chance of abrupt season end dictated by change in status at other communities
