As per direction of the Public Health Officer, Softball BC and the City of Surrey, Surrey Storm have moved into Phase 2 and Softball BC Inning Three Activities until at least the end of June. This means players can travel from out of region, games against other associations and up to 50 spectators (25 per team) can watch a ball game. Click on the above link to see more. A reminder that people still need to social distance.
Try outs are just around the corner. Some changes this year due to COVID 19. All players must be pre-registered to participate, an email will go out in advance regarding start time of registration, parking lot to park in, as well as other details. Please note, only players are allowed at the field. Parents must remain in their vehicles and all players and parents are expected to maintain social distancing. Check in for tryouts will be at the diamond you are attending. If you are displaying symptoms of COVID up to or during the tryout period, please contact Jill Anderson at email@example.com. Pre registration can be found on our site at www.surreystorm.com. All registrations are confidential.
It has been an interesting year to say the least and while we are not back to totally normal on the field, we do have some business to take care of off the field. On Thursday, July 30th, we will be having our annual general meeting. We will be trying something different this year and will be doing the meeting over Zoom due to COVID 19. The meeting will begin at 7:00 PM and the Zoom Meeting details are:
Meeting ID: 980 4899 7148
This year, we are proposing to increase the number of executive members for the Surrey Storm Fastpitch Association from 7 to 9. This will allow us more horsepower at the top of house to work on a variety of initiatives as well as reduce some of the workload for some of our executive roles.
We also have two executive members not coming back next year as they move on to other opportunities. Corry Clark, Secretary and Kyley Wilcott, House Director have done a massive amount of work for the association over the years and will be missed immensely. We wish them all the best but we will be leaning on them still as we transition.
So we will have at least 4 openings on our executive if the proposal to increase executive is passed. We are hoping by giving this notice that people will have a chance to think about this opportunity to be directly involved with their child’s association. We rely heavily on volunteers to make this all happen. We are really hoping that some House and Rep B parents are interested as we do not have good representation from these areas.
If you have any questions about the role of executive members, you can reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As we get ready for the upcoming 2019/20 season, it’s time to wish our 01A team all the best as they move on the the next stage of their lives.
