2020 Rec Season Cancelled

Update 5/4/2020

Dear PQGSA families,

After much consideration and discussion the PQGSA Board of Directors has decided to formally end the 2020 Rec season.  This decision was an extremely difficult one as we know how much our players and families had hoped to return to the fields.  Based on the current restrictions with regard to gatherings, social distancing, and on-going field closures, the PQGSA Board felt it was in the best interest of our league to end the Spring season and begin planning for future events.

At this time we have not made a decision on the status of the All-Star program.  That decision will be made as more information becomes available from USA Softball and our local, state, and national governments.

After a careful analysis of our incurred expenses for the 2020 Rec season the Executive Board has determined the remaining funds equate to $10 per player.  While our season of actually playing on the field was shortened, there are many non-refundable fees that are required to host a season, many of which are due before a season even begins. Some of these for the 2020 Rec Season include Jr. Umpire equipment, lights fees, background checks, USA Softball registrations, fences, insurance, field permits, uniforms, equipment, field maintenance, Picture Day, and Opening Day festivities.  Additionally, the league was unable to host its yearly fundraising events such as the Padres Softball day and the PQ Memorial Day All-Star tournament. 

Due to the nominal amount per player, the PQGSA Executive Board has elected to incorporate the remaining funds into the budget for the 2021 Rec Season and will not be offering refunds or credits.

In this unprecedented situation the PQGSA Board would like to express how appreciative we are of your support through this difficult time.  We are excited to begin planning for our upcoming Winterball season and can’t wait to see everyone back on the fields.


PQGSA Executive Board:

  • Shawn Tran, President
  • Doug Tracy, Vice President
  • Kevin Krogstad, Treasurer
  • Travis Smith, Secretary
  • Scott Ward, Player Agent
