Spring Sports

Update on Spring Sports Programs 

Baseball, East Ottawa Flag Rugby, Soccer and Sideline Fitness

The Manor Park Community Centre, parks and sports fields, are closed until June 30, 2020. We are confident that a successful (and fun!) Spring Sports season will transition easily into July and August, should public health officials deem it safe. We are working closely with the City of Ottawa, coaches and suppliers to ensure that we are ready to go should physical distancing measures relax in time for July. Unfortunately, should physical distancing measures extend past July we may be forced to cancel the Spring Sports season. 

The situation surrounding COVID-19 and physical distancing measures changes daily. We are commited to monitoring these updates and their impact on our Spring Sports programs. We do sincerly appreciate everyones patienced as we await definitive updates from Public Health officials on the length of physical distancing measures.

RESCHEDULING SPRING SPORTS PROGRAMS 

Once we recieve definitive updates from Ottawa Public Health and Government Officials we will update families with the new dates for Spring Sports programs.  Existing registrations will automatically transfer to the rescheduled date(s). 

If the rescheduled date(s) do not suit, you should contact the MPCC in writing so that a credit for program fees can be applied to the Amilia account where the original registration was made. The credit can be redeemed for any program or activity offered by the MPCC – early learning, children, teens and adults – until December 31, 2021. Please note that credits from recreational programs cannot be applied to monthly fees associated with ‘Before- and After-School in Manor Park’.

Should we be forced to cancel Spring Sports programs, we will email each registrant and automatically apply a credit for program fees paid.

Credits get an extra 10%!
We are asking families to keep their registration fees with us by accepting a credit for future programming. This will help to ensure that we are able that we are able to get back up and running as soon as possible. To express our thanks for accepting a credit for your recreational registration fees, we will be topping up its value by 10%. In other words, your $100 registration credit can be used to purchase $110 of recreational programming.  (Sorry, but the 10% top up cannot be redeemed for cash).

Refunds:
The Manor Park Community Council aims to build a strong and liveable community where residents develop their bodies, minds, and community spirit through recreational activities. We strive to support our neighbourhoods and families. We understand that accepting a credit for a cancelled or rescheduled recreational program is not possible for all families.  Requests for refunds for program fees paid should be sent to jcassidy@manopark.ca and will be handled on a case-by-case basis. 

Donate your registration fee!
You may also donate your registration fee to The Opportunity Fund – created to help those in financial need (all ages!) participate in our recreational programs. In 2019, neighbourhood children played soccer, baseball, attended arts programming and Summer Day Camps thanks to the generous support of residents through The Opportunity Fund.

If you, or someone you know, could benefit from The Opportunity Fund – just let us know! (Yes, it is that easy). 

Thank you

Please feel free to reach out to me directly at jcassidy@manorpark.ca with any questions, clarifications or concerns.
