We have created a list of answers to some frequently asked questions from our membership.

Wishing you good health and safety while we work together to get through this difficult time. Further information will be communicated when it is available.

Will Championships and any other games during the season be played?
Unfortunately, the 2019-20 season is cancelled.

This is still being determined.

What is the timeline for spring tryouts?
Tryouts for the 2020-21 season will not be conducted this spring.The timelines for tryouts will be determined at a later date and communicated to Associations as emerging information becomes available.

Will we be receiving any refunds from our Associations for the cancelling of the season?
It is up to each Association to decide if/how this will be administered.
