2016 Outdoor Sportsfields Reminders

Dear City of Guelph Sports Field User,

The season is finally under way and we wanted to send the following reminders:

  • Remember to check the Sports field Status page on guelph.ca for information on sports field closures.
  • Provide all of your coaches and reps to carry a copy of the relevant facility contract onsite with them.
  • Remind all of your coaches that they are to call our after hours live response contact number at 1-866-630-9242 should they have issues or concerns that require immediate attention. This number also appears on the facility contract.

Have fun and play safe and please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Opening Day 2016

Thanks, Jon!

Lisa and I got the diamonds all prepped yesterday. In-grounds found and dug out, bases and plates all accounted for in green bins at all diamonds.

Road going in is flooded due to blocked culverts. Hoping it gets fixed today.

Open for Business

Anyone trying to get into the Free Agents list recently will have found themselves unable to register – this was because it was closed for a short time for a bit of cleanup from last year. Postings on the Free Agents lists and in the Lost & Found have been removed to make room for this year’s stuff as well as most of the users.

Registration has now been opened up.

Any individuals interested in joining a team for the coming season can use the Free Agent lists to introduce themselves to the teams.  Since each team is responsible for creating and maintaining their own roster, there is no general registration supplied by the leagues and we are unable to let you know about costs (each team handles their finances differently – sponsors, sugar daddies, whatever). Those interested in Co-ed should post on the GTCSPL List while those interested in the men’s league should post on the RCMSPL List.

For anyone who posted something in the last month or so, it’s possible that it was removed when I was cleaning things out – simply log in (register again if that was also removed) and post your info in the appropriate spot.
