Information Regarding the FFPS Fall 2020 Season and COVID-19

Dear FFPS Parents:
Thank you or your support and patience during this most trying of times,

Spring / Summer Season CANCELED:

After an extensive examination of Gov. Abbott's "Minimum Standard Health "Protocols" announced May 18, 2020 (see below Gov. Abbot's "Protocols") and many other factors, FFPS feels it is best to "Cancel" the Spring / Summer Season. We were so hoping things could get back to normal 'for the kids"!!! Gov. Abbott's 'protocols' are in the right direction but not yet back to normal "for the kids" and our FFPS families. We feel a Summer Soccer Camp would be much better and more appropriate at this time. We highly recommend our Challenger International Summer Soccer Camp. For more info go to www.FFPS.org.
