Dear Guelph Minor Softball Association/Gators families,
the Ontario Government’s most recent update, the GMSA/Gators organization is
now able to move forward with our 2021 season planning. The structure of our
season may look a little different than in the past (prior to Covid19), please
keep this in mind as we navigate through this pandemic together. In line with our mission, we want all players and their families to know
that our main goals for this season, just like any other, include: player skill
development, physical activity and rich social experiences.
Below is our 2021 Schedule at a Glance…
GMSA Registration Deadline – May 30th
The cut-off date to register has been extended, please be sure to register your child by Sunday, May 30th. We will not accept any registrations beyond this date as we will be organizing teams based on these final numbers.
GMSA Team Assignment Meeting - June 5th
Members from our board will be organizing teams and assigning coaches. Further, we will assign team cohorts as necessary to abide to the government ‘10 persons per group training’ guidelines (which will be in effect June 14th – July 5th).
GMSA Coaches Meeting – June 7th via Zoom Platform
Coaches will receive a package including GMSA Return to Training Protocols, Practice Plan Template, Team Schedules and Team Roster information.

GMSA/Gators Night in the Park – postponed to August 2021
The government’s Roadmap to Reopen indicates that it will take time to progress through Steps One, Two and Three. We will postpone our annual GMSA/Gator Night in the Park to the end of the summer in hopes that gathering limits expand. Please stay tuned for more information to come in late July/early August.
GMSA Photos – postponed to August 2021
We are working on restructuring how we do our photos with a goal of each player and every sponsor receiving a team photo. More information will be provided in early August.
