A message from Jacob Gifford, Youth Sports Coordinator:
Hello, everyone. I hope that you and your families are doing okay during all of this!
Many of you have probably heard by now that Hamilton Youth Athletics and Groveport Youth Athletics have cancelled their seasons. Unfortunately, since those are the teams that we compete against, that means we are also going to cancel our season.
We have started the refund process for everyone and you can expect to find your refund check in the mail sometime in May. Most likely late May.
I do have a little bit of good news though. We still want to put together some sort of season that will be free-of-charge for everyone. We’re not sure exactly what that will look like, but we are in the planning stages now. We do know that it’ll be free, it will be a condensed season that will last around a month, and it’ll be in-house (Obetz teams vs. Obetz teams). If this makeshift season happens, it’ll take place in June.
We’re in the waiting game now. We’re waiting to see how the next few weeks unfold and how it’ll affect youth sports going forward. If we get a green light from the Governor and we know we can do it safely, we will begin putting our plan into place and you’ll hear from me as soon as possible.
Cancelling the season was the last thing we wanted and we are heartbroken for all of the kids, so we are really hoping that our plan can come together and we can pull off something special.
Let me know if you have any questions or need anything in the meantime! I hope I’ll have some good news in the coming weeks.
