The participating members of the NCCGSL (the league we play in) had a conference call l to discuss plans for this spring season. After careful consideration, we decided to cancel the 2020 Spring Season.
There were many factors that went into the decision but the most important factor was the health and well-being of our girls, our families and our fans.
Refunds across CAC sports will be different based on the money each sport has put out for league registration fees, equipment and uniforms. Fortunately, softball had not yet paid out any money, so we will be able to issue a full refund of your softball registration fee. For those families that also paid the CAC "Family" and admin fees, these fees go to cover the overhead of CAC (registration, accounting, field maintenance). Many of these fees are not variable and occur even though the spring season is not occurring. The good news is that the family fee covers you for all sport registrations and family members for the rest of 2020. CAC is looking at ways to mitigate this fee for families who only participate in one sporting season. Since almost all other CAC sports are on a hold until 24 April, we will be processing most refunds closer to that date. If you are experience financial hardship due to the COVID-19 outbreak and need a refund prior to the end of April, reach out to the softball commissioner and it will be handled on a case by case basis.
We will be back in the fall! In the mean time, stay safe.
