OPFL Update From Tammy & John Allarie

Thursday May 21, 2020

Hello Sooners Families, 

On behalf of the Allarie family and all of our wonderful staff, coaches, managers, volunteers etc we would like to extend best wishes to all of you and thank you all for your continued commitment and support to our organization.

We are all doing our best to work through these unprecedented times, and dealing with the reality that our 2020 OPFL season has been cancelled. We support the decision and feel that it was the best one to make under the circumstances.

While we are off the field, we are still thinking about you and our future. We are anxious to get back at it, but taking this time to explore new measures that we can take to help keep us all healthy and safe when we do return to the field.

In the meantime, many of you have paid some or all of your registration fees for the 2020 season.  We have recorded these fees as a credit towards the 2021 season for everyone, with the exception of the $150 non refundable reduced tryout fee that helped to cover the costs that were incurred for our 2020 training.

If however, you feel that a refund is a better fit for your personal situation, please contact, either myself (Tammy), or any of the staff, they will make sure I receive the request so that I can issue refunds in the most timely manner possible.

Please stay safe and healthy everyone, we look forward to seeing you all on the field very soon.

Once a Sooner, Always a Sooner.

Sincerely,

John and Tammy Allarie

OPFL ANNOUNCES SEASON CANCELLATION

Tuesday May 19, 2020

The Ontario Provincial Football League, after reviewing the Province of Ontario Health Statements and Guidelines, those of the municipalities represented throughout the province, and the Club representatives has made the difficult decision to cancel activities related to the operation of a 2020 spring/summer football program.

The difficult decision was in keeping with one of the founding principles of the OPFL: The Player – To act on the best interests of what is best for the player. The player will be at the forefront of all league actions.

There is much uncertainty during this time.  The health crisis is affecting areas of the province with varying degrees of impact.  It is vitally important we respect and honour the health and well being of all our participants, from the player, the coach, the support staff, and the families themselves.

We applaud many of the initiatives clubs and coaches have taken over the past weeks.  We have seen and heard of the online meetings, of staff providing reaching out with on-line clinics, players getting together on-line to work out and the providing of peer-to-peer support.  The OPFL participated in a Xbox/PlayStation virtual Madden Football tournament with over 230 participants brought together throughout our Provincial clubs in early May.

All together the interest in the sport is alive thanks to all the clubs and support staff throughout Ontario doing what they do best, helping our youth to develop skills for success both on the field of play and off the field for life preparations.

The OPFL Executive will continue to explore any opportunities to keep our football community on the field. We will monitor the ongoing crisis and in the event of changes will reconvene with our memberships to explore options.

On behalf of the OPFL Executive Council we wish each of you, and your families the best during this battle.  We all look forward to the day when we can return to competition.

Sincerely,

Terry Barkley

League President

2020 OPFL Season Update

As the current public health crisis continues to evolve, we are continuing to monitor the situation very closely. The safety and well-being of all of our players is of highest priority.

On Saturday March 28, 2020, the Ontario Provincial Football League (OPFL) held an update meeting with its members.  The league has postponed all football activities until at least May 1, 2020.  The general consensus amongst members and executives was to continue waiting and have season if able.  The length and start date of the season would be entirely based on when the majority of clubs are able to safely return to the fields. In making the decision of returning to play, we will have to take into account recommendations and regulations from health authorities and government.

If the season becomes cancelled, the Ottawa Sooners will automatically provide a credit to players for use at a later date. In the event someone prefers to receive a refund and not an account credit, they will need to contact us via email (registrar@ottawasooners.ca) or phone (613.878.6373) to have it processed.  

Any player wishing to immediately cancel their registration, may do so by email (registrar@ottawasooners.ca) or phone (613.878.6373).

**All account credits and refunds will be less the reduced 2020 try-out fee**

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
