Dec 23rd Game Postponed
6 months ago

So, no game Thursday, December 23—and beyond, until we get an “all clear” from OPH.

Of course, this is all because of the new omicron COVID wildfire: we feel it’s unwise to gather 40+ guys for a contact sport on the second day before Christmas, knowing full well that most will be socializing with family starting probably the very next day, Christmas Eve.

To put it bluntly: we don’t want to have the consequences of an “outbreak” on our collective conscience at what’s supposed to be “the most wonderful time of the year”… should we be so unlucky.

We’ll update you on the financial and rescheduling implications as soon as we’ve connected with the dome’s owner, TMSI.

Thanks as usual for your help and understanding. It’s disheartening to be forced into playing the Grinch like this, but at least we don’t have to wear that ghastly green outfit of his. ;-)

Games at alternate fields Aug. 28
10 months ago

A reminder that our August 28 games take place at Carrière, Barrington and Tauvette fields because the Potvin-Shefford facility will be used by the Gloucester Dragons for their Annual Soccer Day.

Please see GAMES in the menu above for your team’s venue then.

Note as well that no official games are scheduled the weekend after, Sept. 4, but a kick-about will be held on field 5 at Potvin-Shefford for those wanting a few extra touches on the ball.

 
Covid cases rising: Minimize close contacts
11 months ago

Given the upward trend in Covid-19 cases since late July, driven by what Ottawa Public Health says is the hyper contagiousness of the Delta variant, we now ask all teams to forego post-game fist and elbow bumps, to avoid the closer contact these involve.

Instead, consider saluting the referee and your opponents with collective applause over the head after the game.

Also, please further increase your distancing on the sidelines and avoid prolonged 1v1 contact on the field. Cede the ball rather than exhale at length on each other.

We know, it sucks. But the BASL cares too much about its players (friends) to make light of a situation like this. We can still have fun while staying even safer… and improving our chances of playing indoor soccer as well.

Merci encore de votre compréhension.
