The Batesville Soccer Club’s 2020 3v3 Batesville Casket Cup
2020 Casket Cup 3v3 Tournament has been canceled. Please click here for details.
Date: November 2, 2020
Subject: Batesville Soccer Club (BSC) 3V3 Tournament Update
To: All 3V3 Soccer Tournament Parents, Supporters, and Players
Due to the recent rise of positive covid-19 case trends, Ripley County, Indiana moved to level orange late last week. Level orange means gatherings must be less than 150 people and unfortunately, the gathering limit is placed on both indoor and outdoor events which includes our annual 3V3 tournament.
We have been blessed for the past several years to have so many teams register for this exciting and unique event, and in this current covid-19 environment, it puts our participation levels over the maximum limit. After consulting with the Ripley County Health Department and looking at numerous alternative options to adapt and host this event safely and within compliance, in the best interest of the health and safety of our players, referees, event volunteers, and spectators, we will be unable to hold the tournament this year.
We had an extremely successful fall recreation and travel season using the CDC guidance and Indiana Soccer Imperatives as our guide. The 3V3 tournament planning committee and BSC board have put in countless hours to plan and prepare for a fun and safe event that included continuation of those safe practices. We do not take this lightly as it is our only annual fundraiser to support maintaining our operations and allowing us to provide fun, safe soccer activities within Batesville and the surrounding communities. We are disappointed in the inability to move forward with this, but we are committed to making the most out of it where we can. Please see below for what we can do!
Next Steps and What We Will Do:
1. Online 3v3 Tournament Costume Contest – we know our registered teams have enthusiastically put thought into team names and costume themes, and we still want to see them!
-Email us a picture of your team in your costumes by Saturday, November 7th 5PM to [email protected]
-Include your team name, age group, contact name and number for us to reach winners
-We will award the best costume for both boys and girls teams in each age group!
-Each winning team receives a $10 gift card per participant, to be mailed following contest
-Winners will be posted on our website and club Facebook page, so check them out soon! www.batesvillesoccer.org
2. Drive-Thru Pick-up for 3V3 Tournament T-shirts* – every year each participant receives a 3V3 tournament t-shirt included with registration fees.
*The cost of these shirts has already been incurred and will be excluded from the team refund noted below
-WHEN: Saturday, November 7th from 9:30AM – 12PM
-WHERE: Bill Gillespie Soccer Park Concession Stand (698 S John St, Batesville)
-Please coordinate to send 1 individual per team to pick up and distribute shirts to the rest of the team members
-Pull into the circle drive near the concession stand, remain in your vehicle, and one of our volunteers will obtain information to distribute - the bag of shirts to the team representative
Note: Pre-orders for 3V3 spirit gear will be ready for pick up at this same time. We will send orders with the team bag unless we are contacted by the individual placing the order. Email our tournament coordinator for questions or special handling instructions.
3. Team Refunds for 3V3 Tournament Registration – as with any large event, we have incurred costs we are unable to absorb, including the t-shirts mentioned above. We make every effort to keep costs minimal and are absorbing expenses where we can re-use items for future needs.
-Each team will be refunded $75 of the original registration fee. The costs already incurred resulted in a deduction of $11.25 per player based on a 4 player team
-Each team will receive four (4) 3V3 Tournament T-shirts (see above for pick up instructions)
-The $3 transaction fee is a charge by our website provider and unfortunately not refundable
We thank you for your interest in the Batesville Soccer Club 3V3 Tournament! If you are new to this event, we hope you will come back next year to see how truly unique it is for our soccer community! If you are an avid 3V3 attendee, we know we will see you back and can not wait to see what you come up with next year!
Before we close, we must give a huge thank you to our sponsors who have supported us wholeheartedly even through navigation of all the unknowns that come with covid-19. You will find our title sponsors represented on your 3V3 Tournament T-Shirt and we hope you wear it proud!
All The Best for The Next Soccer Season,
Batesville Soccer Club 3V3 Tournament Committee
