Hello RCC-Youth Softball Membership!
I hope you are well and keeping safe during these challenging times.
I would like to update you on the upcoming the 2020 softball season plans by Rosedale Youth Softball.
The 2020 regular season play for Rosedale Youth Softball was scheduled to start on Monday, May 25, 2020. The City of Hamilton Parks and Sports Fields are currently closed until at least May 25, so clearly, we will not be starting our season as originally scheduled.
Having said that, Rosedale Youth Softball Executive is continuing preparations to play!
In addition to preparing the game schedule, the RCC Executive has extended the registration period, uniforms have been ordered, Umpires have been booked and diamond times scheduled for June 1, 2020. Rest assured that the equipment has been sorted, photographers have been booked and insurance coverage has been sourced. The RCC Executive continues to meet (remotely-practicing social distancing measures) on a regular basis to advance the business of the league and discuss developments of the COVID-19 driven situation as they occur.
The plan at this point is to offer an abbreviated season of play once the closures are lifted. We should need about 7 business days from the time the closures are lifted to get to where we can throw out the first pitch. At that time registration fees will be pro-rated to cover the actual costs incurred to play the number of games that we will ultimately be able to schedule. Partial refunds will be offered once we know the difference between the two numbers.
If the City of Hamilton sports fields remain closed beyond our ability to schedule games this season, full refunds will be issued accordingly.
If you have already registered your player(s) and decide you wish to receive a refund prior to the start of play, please forward your request to me and we will get it processed as soon as possible.
Please keep an eye on our website and our social media channels for updates. Feel free to contact me directly, if you have any questions. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that we can give the kids a chance to play some softball this summer.
In the mean time, please stay safe@home!
President Rosedale Youth Softball
