June 3, 2020:
On Monday, June 1 our NCS Board and Trustees voted to cancel our program for the summer. This was not an easy decision to make as we all know how much many of you, as well as ourselves, look forward to a summertime of baseball/softball. The deciding factors we considered were as follows:
We care very much about our NCS families and program and felt the Covid-19 health risk was much greater than the benefit of playing a summer of baseball/softball. The numerous guidelines provided last month by the Ohio Department of Health would be difficult, if not impossible, to adhere to with large gatherings. NCS offers an athletic adventure and social experience for our youth and their families as well. In following these guidelines, we felt the social aspect of our program would be non-existent, completely eliminating any fun for our participants.
To request a registration refund, please send an email with "REFUND Request" in the subject line to our treasurer, Troy Hanson, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the player(s) name(s) and mailing address with your request. If you paid with credit card the refund will be issued to the credit card used during registration. If you paid by check, please include a copy of the cancelled check in your refund request. Registration refunds will be issued in the coming weeks.
In lieu of a refund, we ask that you consider making a donation of your registration funds to NCS, a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization. If you are in a financial position that allows for this donation it would be greatly appreciated. Although NCS had not yet purchased uniforms for the season (our largest financial outlay), we still incurred significant expenses for equipment leases, insurance, website and registration fees, and facility maintenance that would normally be covered by registration revenue. If you are willing to make your registration a donation, please let Troy Hanson know (email@example.com) by sending and email with "NCS Donation" in the subject line and a 100% tax deductible donation receipt will be provided to you for your tax records.
Once again, we're extremely saddened to make this announcement but felt it was best for all concerned. We look forward to 2021 and encourage each of you to keep us in mind for next season. Our hope is NCS returns next year bigger and stronger than ever.
Take care, stay safe, and enjoy your summer!
