Fall/Winter Sports Update

Emmorton players and families:

As I advised a couple of weeks back, the Emmorton board voted to follow the Harford County school decision with respect to our fall and winter seasons.  On 8/3, MPSSAA announced they were postponing the fall and winter seasons due to concerns with the COVID 19 Pandemic.   As such, in accordance with our earlier decision and out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our players/participants/coaches/instructors and their families, we have suspended our fall and winter seasons until further notice. 

This was not an easy decision by any means, but we're doing what we feel is right and not what is convenient.  We know there are going to be a number of disappointed people and we are genuinely sorry for this.  Every sport and program is impacted by this and we decided we're no longer making exceptions for some program and not others.  It is not fair to the rec council as a whole.   

There are a few summer teams and programs wrapping up their seasons and they will be allowed to complete them with an end date of September 7th.   

I wish I had a crystal ball and knew what the next steps were, but we are in uncharted territory.  For anyone who has registered and paid, we will be refunding your fees shortly.

The buzzword for this is "re-imagine", we're going to look at at some sort of modified seasons for the fall and winter sports in the spring, or as soon as we are able to safely resume.
