Last night at our monthly board meeting, three people were nominated for positions within our organization.
Alex Zuis - Vice President
Katrina Benamati - Treasurer
Kristen Palmer - Secretary
At our November meeting, we will be voting them in.
We are still currently looking for a Communications Director, Soccer Commissioner, and Wrestling Commissioner. If you are interested, please email: email@example.com
For 2020 only, we are adding a U14 Division to OSAA soccer. Students entering 7th and 8th grade in the Schuylerville school district may register to play. The cost is $60 which will include a uniform jersey, shorts, and socks. If modified soccer is cancelled our season will run through the end of October (8 games, 9 weeks of practice). If the modified soccer season is not cancelled, we will hold 3 weeks of practice and two games (through September 19th), then re-evaluate the schedule at that time.
Registration will be open until midnight on Sunday, August 23rd, and practices will begin Monday August 31st. Sign up right away and spread the word!
If you are interested in being a soccer referee for the 2020 season, please register using the link below. Active Schuylerville soccer players in grades 7-12 are eligible to referee, provided they attend a referee training session in the pre-season.
Dear OSAA Athletes and Families,
First and foremost, we hope that everyone is doing well and in good health during this unique and unprecedented time. Navigating through this pandemic has been challenging for all of us!
Unfortunately, at this time, we regret to inform you that we, as commissioners, have decided to cancel our 2020 season. Please be advised that we didn’t enter into this decision lightly. We said that we would exhaust all possibilities before making such a decision and we feel that we have. Our last hope was that the social distancing guidelines and/or “Pause” would be lifted by May 18th so that we could begin to finalize the plans for a summer league. With the state of emergency order now running at least until June 6th and the fact that recreation is included in phase 4 of the reopening plan, we were forced to make the difficult decision of canceling our program this year. We have also been in contact with other area little leagues and many of them have already canceled or are canceling in the near future. With other OSAA programs starting in August, we simply are unable to push our season back any further than we already have.
We understand that some of our athletes will have a difficult time grasping and processing this news. Please try and stress the fact that everyone’s health and safety was our number one priority when making our decision.
We will be sending out refunds in the near future. If you paid by credit card, your card will be refunded directly. If you paid by check, a check will be mailed to you. At this time, we find it best to simply refund everyone vs holding onto it for next year.
Again, we want to stress that this was a difficult decision to make. Although the majority of it was out of our control, we feel for all of our athletes and the emotions that they will have to process when they discover this sad news. Before too long, our 2021 season will be here and the joy of baseball and softball will be seen across the smiling faces of our children once again. Until then, we wish everyone the best and want to thank you for your continued support during such a very difficult and unprecedented time.
We hope to see many of our baseball and softball athletes on the football and/or soccer fields this fall!
