Competitive Season Updates:
At this time we are still planning for a summer competitive season. SSA has been communicating with MYSA and TCSL of what this may look like and there have been discussions of contingency plans for the season based on when we will be able to start. In following with the current dates set forth by the Governor, as of now SSA has set a tentative start date of May 1st. This date will continue to be evaluated based on any updated information that we receive from the Governor, MYSA, and TCSL.
Recreational Season Updates
At this time we are still planning for a summer rec season. The SSA Rec Board Members have been discussing possible contingency plans for the season based on when we will be able to officially start the rec season. Right now, the tentative plan is for the Spring Rec Season to start Mid-May and to end Mid-July. This means that we would be moving the season back by about two weeks. This would allow us to still get a full season in. This plan will continue to be evaluated based on any updated information that we receive from the Governor. SSA is prepared to further adjust the season as needed so that we can see the rec players get to play this summer.
At this time, all SSA events scheduled before April 12th will be canceled.
