Spring Fee Options
It goes without saying but we miss being on the soccer field with you and your children. We know that this has been a challenging time and we continue to be grateful to you for your support and patience as we navigate options for further play at KSA. Unfortunately, due to the current, ever-changing situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we will NOT be able to complete our Spring 2020 KSA soccer season.
We would like to assure you that this decision did not come without thoughtful consideration of our players, our parents, our volunteers and staff; all of which play an important part in our soccer family at KSA. You and your families remain our top priority. We are over 450 KSA players strong in our membership. We are most appreciative for the partnership and trust you have given us with your children.
We have worked over the past few months with our entire Board of Directors, NCYSA, the Town of Kernersville and our sister clubs to figure out a plan to safely return and have remained hopeful throughout. Regrettably, we felt we would not be able to ensure that we could provide a quality program this summer in lieu of our spring season that your family deserves. We based that on facility, player and volunteer availability due to summer schedules but ultimately, the COVID-19 pandemic and current health situation.
As a Spring 2020 KSA recreation player we would like to offer you 3 options for Spring registration fees:
Option 1: You may choose to receive a credit applied to the Fall 2020/Spring 2021 registration. The credit will be 50% for the fees paid for the Spring 2020 season. The non-refunded portion will help offset the expenses incurred for the spring league that are not recoverable. In order to receive a credit please use the link below to register by July 3, 2020.
We are looking at the possibility of an extended Fall season depending on logistics so follow us on our social media pages to stay informed.
Option 2: You may choose to donate your fees paid to Kernersville Soccer Association (KSA). We will send you an acknowledgment letter for tax purposes once the donation process is complete.
We understand that due to COVID-19, this may also be a tough financial time for families. Please, do not feel any obligation to donate to the club. As a non-profit organization we rely heavily on registration fees and financial investors to keep our club operational and to pay our staff.
We continue to be thankful to all of our supporters, no matter what form it is given.
Option 3: You may choose to have your fees credited towards 1 week of KSA 2020 Summer Camp (ages 6-15). We are currently planning to hold our KSA summer camp Monday-Thursday, from 8:30 am until noon, during the weeks of June 29th and July 13th. We are hopeful that we can return to the pitch this summer. *If the state of North Carolina guidelines prevents us from hosting the camps, then we will contact you to select from the other two options listed above.

Other Important Information:
In addition to our KSA camp, we plan to add skills sessions during the evenings this summer. We are happy to offer these sessions FREE to all KSA players. We will send an email to our membership as soon as we are able to secure some dates.
As we receive more guidance from our state representatives and North Carolina Youth Soccer Association (NCYSA) we invite you to join with us once again.
PTFC tryouts: If your player is interested in playing for Piedmont Triad Football Club (PTFC) next season, tryouts and assessments currently will take place in June. More information can be found on www.piedmonttriadfc.org. PTFC will also honor the amount of our credit towards your fees if your player was to move to Club Soccer.
If you were a new participant in the Spring and did not receive your player kit, please email Erin Exline at email@example.com. She will make arrangements with you to pick up your child’s uniform.
Once again, we thank you for your patience, your understanding, and your support. It is our goal to offer a fun and enjoyable experience, while maintaining a healthy environment to move forward. We are eager to return to the days when we can safely gather, get back to soccer, PLAY, LEARN, and GROW with YOU!
The Entire KSA Board and Staff
