Dear Julie Foudy & espnW Sports Leadership Academy California Families,
We are disappointed to announce that for the first time in 15 years we will not be hosting our summer academy in New Jersey nor Northern California. Our concern about the safety and health of our camp participants & staff, as well as abiding by the developing COVID-19 health guidelines were large factors we considered, of course, when deciding to cancel the Summer 2020 session.
The good news (!).......we are already looking forward to an amazing JFSLA week in 2021! Our team will be back with a ROAR (and a few skits) to deliver a unique and impactful program that will be well worth the wait.
As we stated in April, families will have the option of "reserving" a spot for Summer 2021 by leaving your deposit of $350 in your Active family account. This payment will be applied to the 2021 JFSLA program of your choice when online registration is re-opened. If your preference is to receive a full refund and release your spot at next summer's session, we are happy to accommodate you. A parent or legal guardian must contact Marnie McNany at firstname.lastname@example.org regarding the handling of your deposit or full payment. Please note that refunds may not be processed until June 15.
The Julie Foudy Leadership Foundation has received some outstanding scholarship applications for Summer 2020. The Foundation will honor scholarships that have already been awarded if the applicant is available to join us next summer in 2021. Families may be asked to submit additional information to further support their 2020 award around this time next year. If you have any questions about your 2020 scholarship application or your 2020 scholarship award please contact Kerri McClellan at email@example.com.
This is a difficult time with unprecedented circumstances. We want you to know that canceling the JFSLA California session has been done with a lot of thought and heavy hearts. However, with that said, our coaches and staff are already looking ahead! All 2020 registrants will be hearing from us soon regarding ways to stay "JFSLA strong" this summer.
In the meantime, be well and stay healthy. We will be WITH YOU next summer! Missing you already…Best Wishes,
Julie, and the whole JFSLA family
