Red Circle Families,
The Board of Directors met this past weekend to review the current and future status of our 2020/2021 Season. With so much uncertainty and the season scheduled to end in less than 7 weeks, the decision was made to officially cancel the remainder of the season. We understand that this may not be welcome news by all but we do believe given the great difficulties involved in restarting with no clear understanding of what the post lockdown will look like coupled with the continued spread of the virus, it is the most prudent decision.
As originally indicated, we will be providing refunds (prorated) for the time we have been unable to operate. For Tyke Division the refund will be $195. For Novice - Bantam $285, and Midget/Juvenile $295. This takes into consideration the 7 weeks of playing time and the $25 administration fee used to cover our fixed costs (insurance, website, office expenses, etc.). These refunds will be issued via E Transfer. If you have changed your email address since registration please update your Sports Engine profile prior to Thursday February 11, 2021.
Issuing this many refunds will take time and our intention is to begin on or about Monday February 15th with expected completion by March 15th. Please understand that we are limited by time and amount of money that can be e-transferred in a single day/week and given this large volume, it will take time.
Registration for the 2021/2022 Season will open in March, more information to follow soon!!
Equipment return dates are below as well. For those who have RC Equipment please make arrangements to drop off at Stronach Arena on one of the dates below: This does not include Jerseys. Those are yours to keep.
February 20 - 12pm - 2pm
February 27 - 12pm - 2pm
Finally, we have some exciting news to share!! Red Circle will be offering a Full Time Rep Division for the 2021/2022 Season that will participate in the ORHL. This is outside of our Select and House League programs and will be open to players from Novice to Juvenile (age dependent). All interested should plan to attend the tryouts that will be communicated in the near future.
We appreciate the patience and understanding from all of our players, parents, coaches and officials this season. It has been a challenge to say the least but it was great to see everyone making the best of a difficult situation. We are looking forward to next season with cautious optimism that it will be a normal year and hope everyone will return!!
Thank you and stay safe!!
