To our valued families:
I hope you are all doing well despite the unprecedented circumstances we are facing in the world today. FRAM always strives to be much more than a soccer club for our parents and players - our mission is to create a healthy, positive, family oriented, and competitive environment for all our players and parents. This mission remains the heartbeat of our club, and we are so grateful to all of you for being part of the “FRAMily”.
FRAM continues to closely monitor the developments surrounding COVID-19 in Southern California and we are working closely with authorities to maintain up-to-date plans and protocols. We hope to return as quickly as we can, but we can not at this time provide a specific return date. As the situation evolves, we will make every effort to communicate regularly with all of you.
The next few weeks will present many challenges for all of us, and soccer is just a small part of the many things everyone is dealing with in this changing environment. I’m sure many of you have questions about the future, and what the club is planning over the next several weeks until we can return to a normal training schedule. Our goal is to alleviate some of those questions.
To keep our players focused, FRAM has created online curriculum for our players to utilize during this time. The online content features Youth Director Tino Nunez, Director of Coaching Sean Lockhart, and a host of other talented FRAM coaches and offers a variety of training drills meant to keep our players physically fit and mentally strong. We encourage all of our players to check out the content at FRAM's YouTube
Additionally, we encourage all our players to keep in touch with FRAM. Players and families can keep in touch by using the following:

Thank you all for being part of this great club. We have a rich history and culture at FRAM and we take pride in our ability to help develop players into strong athletes and strong citizens.
We are committed to FRAM, and we are committed to you during this challenging time.
On behalf of the FRAM Executive Board and the FRAM Youth Board I thank you and wish you and your families health and safety,
President, FRAM Soccer Club

Dear Families and Players,
FRAM wants to ensure we keep you all informed of how the Coronavirus is affecting our Club as well as the soccer community as a whole.
With the ongoing concern about the coronavirus, it is our goal to keep our families safe by providing information as it becomes available.
Effective immediately, all FRAM Soccer activities – including tryouts, trainings, games, scrimmages, and skills sessions – are suspended for a minimum period of two weeks. Shortly before April 1st, the club will reevaluate the CDC, State of California, US Soccer, and Cal South recommendations and provide an update to our players and families with regards to a return to FRAM activities.
Cal South sent the following email (below) to all its members yesterday (March 11). Please read for further clarification and support for keeping everyone healthy.

We are also monitoring any updates US Youth Soccer (USYS) and The United States Soccer Federation (USSF) make or announce, and will communicate any changes in the current soccer policies regarding this issue. At this time, Cal South competitions and events will continue as scheduled.
