RCMSPL & GTCSPL Update - June 25, 2021
Submitted By Jon Hebden on Friday, June 25, 2021
Ladies & Gentlemen,  

It looks as though we will get to play some ball this year!


While we are all very excited at this prospect, we have some items to clarify and actions for each of you to complete prior to the season starting on July 5th!


RCMSPL
 - will start on July 5th. We have made the divisions as competitive as possible although I realize they may not ALL be ideal; they are as close as we can get. Every team is guaranteed 13 games minimum including playoffs. Teams will play one game a week, except for Division 5 which has 3 teams and will periodically play twice a week.  Teams will play on the same diamond, for the most part, each week to limit contact and for ease of contact tracing. Schedules will be posted very shortly.


The cost this year is $1,300.  You have already paid $200 so you owe $1,100, except for the teams that won in 2019 and have a $500 credit with the league (You know who you are), this will be applied so those teams owe $600. All remaining league fees are due and payable by July 26th.  If not paid in full by then, you will NOT play until you are paid in full.

GTCSPL
 - will start on July 6th. Divisions will be finalized this weekend and schedules will be posted to the site.
# of games and league fees have been sent to the Team Reps. Diamond allocation was restricted to limit contact and for ease of contact tracing.
All teams are responsible for $200 Performance Bond as well as $200 deposit by Monday June 28th. Remainder of League fees will be due by July 26th. If not paid in full then you will NOT play until you are paid and clear.


We have had to implement further precautions as per COVID guidelines and some that just make sense.  These are attached in a one pager for everyone’s awareness.

Shortly, your
team will become active on SPO site. You will receive an email (if you haven’t already) to go in and accept your position on the team. You will also have to build your roster and make any necessary changes to your roster to reflect your current team.


All your players will have to login and accept their position on your team. This is MANDATORY.

There will be a $15 fee per person that is paid to SPO through this login process.

Teams no longer pay the fee to the League. Each player pays their own fee. If they don’t pay the fee, they are not registered, insured, or legally allowed to play ANY games with your team. Make this a priority to get your players signed up.


Rosters will be checked at the start of week 2 (July 19) and any player not registered, will be removed from the roster. ALL players MUST be registered and must have their own email address to do so.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns,

Thanks,

Jo
