We have been re-evaluating the situation every 2 weeks and do not take this decision lightly. However with only 2 of our 4 states resuming training, we feel that we now need to cancel the balance of the Great Lakes Alliance_NPL season
As we await guidance from each state's Department of Health, we are suspending all activities through at least May 31st.
The State of Ohio has granted permission for no-contact or limited-contact sports leagues such as golf or softball to resume May 26. Working groups are still hammering out guidance for soccer. We are hoping to hear something shortly. We are monitoring Indiana, Pennsylvania and New York as well.
We are still optimistic that we will be able to resume playing some time in June and July.
