Kennewick Grid Kids understands that this is a time of uncertainty for everyone. As a league we are committed to transparency and communication with our families. This week, our board of directors met and approved plans for the 2020 season. We would like to take a moment to share those plans with you.
We know that Benton County must be in Phase 4 of Washington's Safe Start Plan for practices and games to begin. We have created 5 different schedules and models based on varying dates of Phase 4 Attainment. The longer we have to wait, the higher the impact on the season. The models can be found in the chart below - green represents the lowest impact, red the highest.
In addition, the KGK board has set cut-off dates for entry into the Safe Start. These are dates we know have to be met in order for the season to happen. If at any point, a target date is not met we will cancel the season and issue refunds within 7 days. In the event gear has been issued we will issue refunds within 7 days of gear return. Please note that these refunds do not require the purchase of any registration insurance. The current target dates are:
We hope being armed with this information helps to alleviate some of your concerns. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to reach out to us or your organization's head coach. Online registration is now open and Early Bird Discounts have been extended through July 15th. Our expectation is that we will enjoy a robust football season in 2020. We hope you'll join us!
