Meridian Police Activities League Sanctioned Activities
May 1, 2020

Meridian PAL Families,

On behalf of the Meridian PAL Sport Committees and Board of Directors we would like to thank you for your patience and support of Meridian PAL and our community as we all continue to endure the challenges of the COVID-19 situation. While the State of Idaho begins to reopen churches, businesses, as well as youth organizations on May 1, we want to remind everyone of Governor Little’s and the CDC guidelines to continue to maintain physical distancing and other safety measures throughout all four stages of the Governor’s plan. We would also like to thank all of the members in our community who have continued to serve in so many ways to ensure the safety and health of our community as well as those who have continued to work to serve essential needs. Thank you.

Soccer

After careful consideration we have made the decision to cancel the Spring Soccer Season. We understand there may be a sense that Meridian PAL activities sports should begin immediately based upon recent announcements, however the criteria for all stages of the Governor’s plan continue to include necessary safety measures for all four stages. You may also begin to see teams practicing for other sports and activities in the coming days as they attempt to navigate the guidelines in new ways. We want to assure you that we too have examined the guidelines, listened to other leaders, coaches, as well as parents in our program and throughout the community in coming to this decision. Even though teams in other activities may begin practicing, the Governor’s plan does not currently permit tournaments or competitions that will begin in a timeframe that will allow Meridian PAL to provide a Spring Soccer Season.

Flag Football

In regards to our Flag Football Season, we continue to evaluate the possibility of successfully providing a Spring Season. We will provide an update after the Governor’s next COVID-19 update as we get closer to Stage 2.

Baseball

For our Baseball participants and anyone who is interested in Meridian PAL Baseball, the season dates have adjusted for a late July start. Please see the website for more information.

Our commitment to you continues to be to monitor the situation and maintain dialogue with community partners so we may be best prepared for the Fall Sport Seasons. Our promise is to always strive towards providing safe and fun youth sports activities.

REFUNDS WILL BE PROVIDED IN FULL & BE DONE AUTOMATICALLY UNLESS YOU REQUEST TO TRANSFER TO THE FALL SOCCER SEASON

TRANSFER REQUEST TO FALL SOCCER – If you prefer a transfer to Fall 2020 Soccer please email [email protected] and provide your full name and the players full name. Please keep in mind many players will change age groups in the fall season and there may be a difference in registration and uniform fees. You will be advised of the change by our team once you submit your request.

TIMING OF REFUNDS – We will begin to process refunds in the coming days with a desire to complete the task as quickly as possible. We expect to have refunds completed by May 31st.

METHOD OF REFUNDS – Refunds will be issued to the debit or credit card you used to register and make payment.

UNIFORMS –The reversible uniform kit will continue to be the uniform kit for the foreseeable future so if you already have it you are good to go. For those who purchased a uniform kit but haven’t received it, please know we are working with coaches to return them so we may completely process refunds. At this time there is no need for parents to individually notify us regarding your uniform situation as our league directors are working with all head coaches.

As always, we are thankful for your support throughout the years and in the future.  It is our hope that this crisis is resolved soon and that you, your family and friends remain safe and healthy.

Respectfully and sincerely,

Board of Directors
