CURRENT BFCT PROGRAMS STATUS

As of now, all BFCT programs are scheduled to resume May 1.  
Our current intentions are to postpone all programming and complete once the situation
allows for safe activity at our fields. Should this not be possible, we will look to modify our
original plans. We will stay attentive to the situation and communicate directly with our
members.

  • U11-U19 Competitive Academy – on hold until May 1
  • Jr Academy – on hold until May 1
  • Technical Performance Academy – on hold until May 1
  • Future Timbers – on hold until May 1
  • COSL Spring League - on hold until May 1
  • BFCT 2020/21 Tryouts – Date TBD

In the meantime, we will continue to provide weekly e-learning lessons for our players.
   

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

When will we know if programming is going to be canceled instead of just postponed?
We have to take a variety of factors into consideration. The biggest impact on our programming comes back to the Governor’s decisions on how long the schools will be postponed. Most clubs around the state rent from school district fields, and if the schools remain closed, it is likely that OYSA will change their stance from postponing to cancellations.
Our feeling is that most of our kids and families will be eager to get back on the field when we are able to, and so that is why our stance currently is to postpone.
If the timeline starts pushing further into the summer, we will then make the tougher decisions on modifying/shortening the season or canceling.

What is the plan for refunds? 
Currently our Board of Directors and BFCT staff is looking at a refund policy for the present situation. This has a great impact on the financial position of the club and the ability to deliver future programming, so we want to be careful and look to the long-term while
balancing the needs and expectations of our membership. That being said, we are hopeful that we will be able to complete our programming as promised as well as offer some additional at-home resources to get everyone through this time.
