COVID-19 Sports Postponement Letter

Coaches, Parents and Players,

We hope this e-mail finds you and all members of your family in good health.

We are in uncharted times and we don't have an answer for when BGCA (or any other organization for that matter) will be able to offer games.

Extracurricular activities are important for kids to be a part of and we are excited to offer what we feel is a very solid spring sports season to this community.  We are working with our partnered school district and other youth sport organizations in the Valley League to coordinate events for when it is safe to play.  The spring sport season has not been cancelled.  We are hopeful to postpone until May or June.
Updates will be posted to our website: www.bgcasports.com.

The treatment of COVID-19 is a moving target right now and it changes every day.  We don't plan on arbitrarily changing dates or offering timelines that we don't feel confident will be met.  A big piece of the puzzle will be when kids go back to school and how long they will be in school for.

We are also waiting on direction from Governor Brown on mass gatherings and if youth sports will be okay to offer even when kids are back in school.  Until we get answers to these questions, BGCA (and any other group offering youth sports in Oregon) is unable to guarantee an event will take place.  We wish we had better answers or even a better plan for you.  We get calls/e-mails every day from people wanting to play.  If there was a way to do it safely, we'd be doing it.  We also get calls/emails about refunds.  We encourage you to hold off on refund requests until we get through April and hopefully have a better idea of timelines to come.

Please keep in mind that sports are a game.  They are meant to be fun.  When the time is right, we will start having fun again.  Until then, please stay safe, stay healthy.

 Sincerely,

BGCA Athletics team
