Spring Sports Cancelation

All

 

I am sending this email to update everyone in our program about Spring Sports with the Optimist Club.  On Thursday evening March 30 the board for the Optimist Club voted unanimously to cancel our Spring Sports programs for baseball, softball and soccer.  This was a very difficult decision to make and one that was not taken lightly.  These are very uncertain times we are living in with no concrete answers.

One of the factors in our decision making was that the school system and all their facilities are still closed and will be closed for the school year which runs July 1st thru June 30th.  Since we use facilities on school grounds for baseball, softball, and especially soccer that makes it very difficult to play soccer and limits our efforts on baseball.

Another major factor is that we have issued refunds for almost 10% of the registrations for those who signed up in the Spring.  This has impacted certain age groups very hard and it would be very difficult to offer the spring program for those age groups.

Our primary concern is the health and well being of our families in our program.  The club feels that it is best to move on from our spring sports and move towards the fall when hopefully things are more back to normal.  At this time, we are looking towards July or August to start practicing fall sports with games to be played in September and October.  This is all tentative and subject to our state and local communities not having a setback with the virus.

Regarding refunds there are two ways we can do this.  We can issue a refund for your child’s spring sports registration or we can simply transfer your child’s spring registration to the fall that we will be offering.  If you request a refund please send the request to me at [email protected] and include your child’s name, sport, age group, who the check is to be issued to along with your address so that we know where to mail the refund.

 

Please stay safe and healthy
