Dear Rangers Families,
In a time when so many people are experiencing so many struggles, I hope this email finds you safe, well, and content.
I remember vividly where I was when I first heard that our country was shutting down indefinitely in order to secure ourselves from the Coronavirus. It was a confusing time full of doubts, what ifs, and unknowns.
Our club has worked tirelessly over the last 17 weeks to try to find a way to bring back some form of normalcy for kids and their families. Our hope was to help kids rediscover what it is to be part of a team, to humbly succeed, to gracefully lose, and ultimately to be a better version of themselves. We believe that all of these are valuable life long lessons that benefit kids far beyond the boundaries of the soccer field.
However, in spite of the measures we have taken, there isn’t much more clarity in our country. In fact, the recent surge in cases both in our nation and in our county have resulted in the postponement and cancellation of numerous indoor and outdoor activities in our area.
Unfortunately, our organization is one of those that are forced to postpone all operating activities for the foreseeable future. We hope that our nation and state can work to remedy our current condition and that activities will open up again soon. Rest assured that when things do open up, The Fullerton Rangers will be there to provide your family with an opportunity to regain some form or normalcy and humanity that we all so desperately need.
What this means for you:
We want to thank you for your interest and support of local youth sports. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you and your family soon.
If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.

We hope this email finds you all well, and in these uncertain times, the most we can hope for is to be well and safe with our loved ones in anticipation of getting back out on the fields to resume activities.

Thank you to all those who participated in our 2020 Spring Recreational season. Your support for the children of our community and The Fullerton Rangers is greatly appreciated.

Subject: Activities Update 03/21/20 - Coronavirus (COVID-19)
To: ALL MEMBERS
To all Coaches, Players, Parents, Families and Friends of the Fullerton Rangers,
In light of the most recent recommendations and guidance related to the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Fullerton Rangers Youth Soccer Organization will be extending its temporary suspension with current plan to resume operations May 1, 2020, subject to change. We are committed to putting the safety of our members, families, and community first and foremost.
The latest guidelines outlined by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the California Department of Public Health, in order to slowthe spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), are listed below. We continue to monitor ongoing events and advisories and we are undertaking the precautions and best practices recommended by public health experts.

We ask that you keep monitoring our website and social media channels for all updates regarding the Fullerton Rangers Youth Soccer Organization and its programming and activities.

To prospective team administrators,
I hope that as you read this, you are safe and well. The last three months have altered many aspects of our lives and I hope that you have found successful ways to get through these months and make them successful.
As many of your experienced, we had to end our spring soccer abruptly, but we are anticipating having a fall season with some modifications. You can review these modifications on our website.
As you all know, our league is dependent on your support as a volunteer. Without your willingness to volunteer as a Head Coach, it is impossible for us to have a season. This fall, in an effort to appreciate the time and effort you invest in our community, we have introduced a Head Coach incentive program. We will provide each approved Head Coach a $50 registration refund after the completion of our fall season. Previous Asst. Coaches and Team Parents are encouraged to apply as a Head Coach.
Just a reminder that late registration will begin in 4 weeks (7/4)! After that, a $30 late registration fee is added and possible wait-listed for team assignments.
There are some revisions to the application process and training requirements. See below.
Player requests – refer to the age matrix for player division placement (2020-2021) based on year of birth. Each season division formation between U5-U10 is not determined until the week following the start of late registration and is primarily based on the quantity of each gender and birth year.
If we are unable to form 6 teams within a single age group, they are combined with a lower/higher division (within the same format; i.e. 4v4, 7v7). Be careful not to promote requests from a single age group or from prior season as generally they split apart (last Fall & current Spring U6 for example U6 moves to U7 which can be combined with U8 while U5 moves to U6). In addition, U9+ divisions are formed with a balance to player ratings. Only freezes are guaranteed.
Thank you and we look forward to our 55th season of Fullerton Rangers soccer!
Fall Soccer Registration is now closed. Thank you to all who have registered.
Currently the fall season is postponed effective 7/9/20, per the activities update announcement. In reference to the website registration information page: “You will be required to fill out payment information, which will authorize the transaction only for 1-2 business days. We will not capture payments until July 10, once the season is confirmed. A 2 day minimum notice will be emailed prior to capturing payment.”. With the most recent announcement, the capture date is undetermined at this time and we will communicate as necessary should authorization to ‘return-to-play’ be announced timely to continue preparations and scheduling of the fall season. In the event the fall season is not authorized to 'return-to-play' timely, applications and open payments will be cancelled with proper notice.
The coach your child is assigned to will contact you via email or phone by the end of the first full week of August. If you have not heard from your coach by then, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Players that we are unable to place on a team will be refunded 100%.
All refund requests must be submitted in writing and received by June 15th for a 100% refund, or by August 15th for a 50% refund. No refunds after August 15th. **Refunds subject to a $10.00 convenience fee.
No prior soccer playing experience is required. We foster a positive experience for boys and girls interested in meeting new friends, learning about the game of soccer and having fun!
The season kicks-off in August with practices 1-2 times per week (M/W or Tu/Th) and games start the first Saturday after Labor Day in September (may be some night and/or Sunday games).
This is a great opportunity for parents to volunteer as coaches and to provide team support while spending time with your children and their friends. No prior soccer coaching experience is required. Other opportunities to volunteer are available throughout the soccer club.
For more information, check our F.A.Q. page.
Spring Soccer registration will begin January 1, 2021, $75.00 for players in Division U12 and below. Players who were born between 2007 and 2016 may register. To understand your child's age group, view the US Soccer Federation Age Group Matrix. Please check back in January for registration information.
Spring soccer is our informal season with no regular team practices. Practices are replaced with Soccer Skills Development Clinic sessions held on approximately four (4) Friday evenings. Soccer Skills Development Clinic details will be posted by February. Games are held on Sunday's after 12noon on full size fields. Spring Opening Day will be held 2/21, first game 2/28, last game 5/2. Additional details will be sent via email to all accepted players the week prior to opening day.
Late registration starts on February 1st, at an additional cost of $20.00 per player and closes on February 12th. Players registering February 1st through February 12th will be placed on the wait list and will be assigned to a team as quickly as possible.
For more details, make sure to check our F.A.Q. page and/or Handbook.
Dear Signature Families,
The Fullerton Rangers are a unique soccer organization because we offer three distinctly different levels of play for our community. These options allow us to provide you and your children with a soccer experience that fits your lifestyle and values. As we move into the summer and towards the end of Recreational registration, it appears that we will not be able to offer one of those options (our signature program) FOR THIS FALL ONLY.
We had prepared to field over 15 teams compete in the Cal South Signature League, but the pandemic has made the likelihood of this uncertain as our governing body has had difficulties figuring out ways to navigate the logistics of the league. They are unable to provide any indication that a league is likely, or even possible, to occur this season, and they do not have a timetable for when they could have an answer to this.
As our Rec registration comes to a close, I wanted to make sure that everyone that was interested in our Signature program knows that if they want to play soccer in the fall, they should either sign up for our Recreational Program using this link http://fullertonrangers.com/recreational/articles/fall-soccer-registration-2020 or register to try out for one of our competitive teams using this link http://fullertonrangers.com/competitive/tryouts, as those appear to be the only two viable options that we can offer. The deadline to register on time for our Recreational league is July 3rd. Our late registration goes until July 10th but includes an additional fee and players are considered on the waitlist.
As the Signature Chair, I am proud of the success that we have had in this program, and I want you to know that we will continue to field signature teams in future seasons.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to email@example.com and ask. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.
We are looking forward to another successful season.
June 29, 2020
