2020 Guelph Men's Recreational Slo-Pitch Registration is Now Open

Registration for the 2020 season is now open! (See link in the left menu bar to the form)

Your League Board continues to work towards maintaining the league both for the coming season and into the future.  As in the past, the Board has examined our costs and we continue to plan a break-even budget to maximize value to all of our players.  

I would like to extend my thanks to the assistance of our volunteer Board, Team Reps and all Players in allowing us to deliver this value.   The past and future inputs towards the league success are always appreciated.

The Board has established a goal of maximizing the number of on-time registrations for the 2020 season. One important change can lead to money for you because we have DOUBLED the referral fee to encourage you to recruit your friends and family.

The fees for 2020 will be as follows:

·         $170 – single night registration prior to close of Registration ** ($195 – for registrations received and/or completed after March 31st, 2020) **

·         $60 – play a second night as well

·         $30 – guest fee for closing banquet


Registration fee includes jersey, mid-season tournament, secondary accident insurance coverage through Slo Pitch Ontario and 2 dinners (Opening Stag and Closing Banquet). 

Another part of our goal of maximizing the on-time registration is encouraging registrations by the deadline. To improve our ability to create fair and balanced teams we need to know who is playing BEFORE we create the teams. Late registrations negatively impact the ability to balance the team make-up. As a result, a late fee will be applied to any registrations submitted after March 31, 2020. More than 12% of our 2019 registrations were late and we are aiming for none in 2020!

In recognition that the league membership is our greatest source for identifying new players we have doubled the referral fee over the 2019 season.  If you refer a new player to the league who plays for the entire season you will receive $50 off your 2021 season’s registration.  Please consider inviting friends, neighbours or co-workers to join and help us grow the league.

Our season kicks-off with our Opening Stag on Friday, April 24, 2020 at the Italian Canadian Club.  I am looking forward to seeing everyone there.

Out-of-Season Event – considering for subsequent years

Thank you to everyone who responded to the recent survey regarding an off-season social event. Interest exists for us to add an off-season event to our annual calendar, but we have decided to not pursue it this off-season due to short notice to plan effectively.


We are in the process of inviting our 2019 sponsors to again sponsor one or more teams.  If your company may be interested in sponsoring a team, please provide me with a contact name and information in order to allow us to follow-up and confirm interest. 

Thanks in advance for registering well in advance of the March 31st deadline and please take advantage of the referral fee for both the benefit of the yourself and the league. 

Best of Health and Well Wishes for the New Year.
