Whitby FC hopes that everyone in your family is safe and healthy. We sincerely thank you for your patience and support as we navigate through new government policies and programs during these times of uncertainty.

We are continually evaluating the situation and considering how best to prepare for the eventual resumption of play. Although we are awaiting updates as to when fields will be open and when leagues will commence, our Club is preparing for the start of the Outdoor season. We do know that leagues will be very flexible concerning scheduling and to extending the outdoor season as necessary.

The Club is in constant communication with the Town and all of our suppliers to ensure that all the necessary fields, uniforms, equipment and other services will be available when needed.

Whitby FC is a not-for-profit community soccer club. We depend on registration fees to operate seasonal programs. Consistent with other community sports clubs we continue to be very optimistic about the upcoming outdoor season. In the event that we are unable to facilitate or in fact we are unable to extend the season once started we will be providing a credit corresponding to OUTDOOR fees paid for those programs that are shortened or cancelled. The credit can be applied to any of our future programs and for any family member not just the currently registered player.

As you can appreciate, COVID 19 continues to impact the start of our season, however, the Club has already incurred a substantial amount of costs in preparation for the season.. As a not-for-profit organization, we do not carry vast cash reserves. We are committed to providing quality programming to the Whitby community through this unparalleled time and will continue to update our membership periodically or when new information becomes available.

Stay safe and please take care of your families.
