RMLL Response to COVID-19
June 1, 2020
This is the update from the March 15 and April 9 communications regarding covid-19.
On April 23, 2020 Dr. Hinshaw, Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer, announced that the social distancing ban on gatherings of more than 15 people will be maintained throughout the summer. This was on the same day that the Calgary Stampede and Edmonton’s K-Days (as well as other large festivals) announced that they were cancelled for 2020. On April 24, 2020, the City of Calgary announced that its facilities would be remain closed until July 31 or longer. Other municipalities across Alberta, BC, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba have been making similar decisions.
In addition, on May 28, the Canadian Lacrosse Association cancelled all national championships for 2020.
As a consequence of these decisions from government and lacrosse governing authorities, the RMLL, in consultation with, and the agreement of all the divisions, regrettably is formally cancelling its 2020 season. While there was some hope that some type of modified schedule could be maintained for July-August, that is no longer an option.
The ALA discussed the issue of refunding of fees in their April 8 communication. For RMLL players/teams, there are three different types of fees:
- ALA Intent to Play. Players directly paid this fee of $60.25 when they registered through the RAMP system (RMLL Intent-to-Play). This fee (minus an administrative fee of $10) will be refunded.
- RMLL Franchise Fee. All Franchises pay a minimum Franchise Fee of $800 to the RMLL. This fee plus any Division extra fees will be credited to 2021 season for all Franchises (minus an administrative fee set by the RMLL Executive).
- Team Player Registration Fees. A player pays this fee to the team that they are playing on. For the vast majority of teams, this fee has not been paid yet, because the team selection process had yet to occur. However, there may be some players who have already paid their team fees. In this case, you need to contact your team to determine what their refund policy is.
The reason for withholding administrative fees is that the RMLL’s fiscal year is October-September. As a result, the RMLL has already incurred costs including the 2019 AGM and 2020 planning meetings and the graduating midgets combines in Edmonton and Calgary. The ALA is in a similar position and this was outlined in their April 8 communication.
Losing an entire RMLL season is something that none of us has likely thought about. Then again, few of us would have foreseen the near total disruption of life in general. This presents us all with a number of difficult challenges to navigate over the coming months. Among those is all of us working together to keep the momentum in our game and our league so we can build a successful comeback lacrosse season in 2021.
