2020 Season Update
Submitted By Bruce Collett on Friday, May 29, 2020
Good afternoon
We hope this update finds you and yours well during this unprecedented time.

We hope this update finds you and yours well during this unprecedented time.

 

Over the past 2 months we have continued to keep the hope of a season our priority.

We have been working on schedules and return to play plans for a July start.

The return to play plans are quite cumbersome and would require 100% buy in from all Teams, Players, Umpires, Fans etc.

 

However, as of this morning you may have heard, the City of Guelph has decided to close all Facilities until September 8th.

With that news, unfortunately, we feel it is in the best interest of our members and the Leagues to suspend the 2020 season for RCMSPL & GTCSPL.

-starting a season in September would reduce all teams to approximately 4 games each and that doesn’t take into account any unforeseen weather delays.

We feel this is the best option for all and will help us ensure the safety of all our players and their families.

 

Any team that has paid a deposit or partial league fees can have the option of a full refund of the fees or carrying these over to the 2021 season.

Any team that has paid their Performance bond can carry this over to the 2021 season.

If you do require a refund then you can contact your league President who will make arrangements for the return of any fees.

 

We thank you for your patience during this time and apologize that the news is not more positive

We will continue to work towards a better 2021 season

 

Stay safe

 

Kindest regards,
The Executive Committee
