Closure of Outdoor Sports Field

As you may be aware, in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19 and keep people home, the Government of Ontario has extended associated emergency measures to include the closure of all outdoor recreational amenities including outdoor sports fields effective March 31, 2020.

We would appreciate your support in sharing this message with your members and players to encourage them to refrain from use of fields even for individual practice purposes.

In addition, this closure will affect how you have traditionally organized your league and season schedules as it may not be feasible to open municipal outdoor sports fields by May 19th. Keep in mind once the emergency measures are lifted staffing and field preparations will also need to be completed.We will keep you informed regarding field availability based on the mandated associated emergency measures.
