Covid April 6 Update

April 6, 2020

To all our members

As we continue into another week of the Covid 19 Crisis, Slo-Pitch National has transitioned our operations from our fulltime office to our home offices. The National Office staff emails are listed at the bottom of this message. We are available to answer any questions you may have about the 2020 season. 

There have been many inquiries from leagues and conveners who require insurance certificates for the 2020 season. These certificates will be issued when we have specific return timelines for each Region. Please feel free to contact us if you have specific questions about 2020 Insurance Certificates. We know that many groups and events are working on potential modifications, but this is challenging since there are many questions with no available answers. We encourage anyone needing some guidance to reach out to us.

All scheduled events have been temporarily cancelled until further notice. This includes tournaments, umpire clinics and all regional meetings. We encourage all of our members to practice social distancing. This means to refrain from group meetings and team practices. Please ensure you are adhering to the practices set in place by all levels of government and health Canada.

During this crisis we recognize that various regions across Canada have unique needs. We are here to address those needs and answer your specific questions via our Regional Directors and Offices. The contact information for each Regional Director is also listed at the bottom of this message.

We will continue to be available to you by email and through our social media platforms, providing our members with weekly updates as they pertain to and affect our programs across Canada. Our Regional Directors continue to meet via teleconference each week to review and assess this situation as it unfolds. Our message for the week of April 13 will be posted on Wed, April 15.

We would like to thank all of our members who are working to provide us with essential services during this crisis. We will forever be grateful for your dedication and service.

Your understanding and support is appreciated as we work hard to do our part to help keep everyone safe during this uncertain time. We are confident that there will eventually be an end in sight, and when that time comes, we are excited to see you all again, enjoying our fantastic sport!
