Update on Spring 2020 Season & COVID
I am saddened to share we are unable to proceed with the Spring/Summer 2020 season. Both leagues the Lions committed to for Spring 2020 have cancelled their seasons, and the OFA (provincial sport organization) will be refunding all insurance fees.
The York Region Lions has committed the following teams to the Ontario Football League for Fall 2020. Participating in any football activity will be governed by Provincial Return to Play protocols, keeping the players' safety at the forefront.
U10 (born 2011-12)
U12 (born 2009-10)
U14 (born 2007-08)
If you are currently registered and would like to transfer your registration fees to our upcoming Fall 2020 season please indicate your wish to do so no later than Friday, June 5th 2020 here (link). Any difference will be refunded to method of payment.
Spring 2020 - Registered Players
Unless indicated above, Spring 2020 registration fees will be refunded in full to all accounts in good standing. No administration fee will apply. Please allow up to two weeks for these credits to appear on your credit card statements. Payments that were issued in cash will be returned via cheque.
2020 Insurance Purchased through OFA
The OFA will be processing refunds to all individuals who purchased player or coach insurance for 2020. These credits are automatic - there is no need to reach out to request this.
Our promise to you still stands - when we can return to the field, we will. We're extremely disheartened by the decision to cancel this early in the season, but respect the decisions of both the leagues and the OFA.
Please reach out with any questions or concerns.
