1ST EVENT: IMPORTANT INFORMATION!
 

Welcome to the 2017 Super Series Season!

 

Registration – Registration will open at 8:00 am on Saturday. Only the Team Contact needs to register the Team and sign in. Please arrive early so you can register before your Coaches Meeting.

 

The Coaches Meetings will be at 8:15 am and 9:30 am SHARP inside Slo-Pitch City. This is a MANDATORY MEETING. No Participation Points will be awarded if you are not in attendace.

 

Speed of Play – Please remind both your infielders and outfielders to hustle in and out in order to keep games on time. Please review the Pre-Game Procedure in the Rules.

 

Rules - New Rules and Super Series Rules & Standards were emailed to all Team Contacts and will be discussed at the Coaches Meetings.

 

Profanity – See Profanity Policy.

 

Smoking - No smoking will be allowed on any part of the property of either Slo-Pitch City or Southwest London Baseball Complex, in accordance with the Smoke-Free Ontario Act and its Regulations.

 

Batting Practice – The Dorchester diamonds are off limits without a Permit! To inquire about a Permit, contact Slo-Pitch City at 519-268-7976.

 

Draw Boards – While the schedules are posted on-line no later than Wedensday at noon, there may be a few adjustments to games in the day or so after. Your first game time will not change. The official draw boards will be the ones posted at the Complexes. If you want to print a copy, we would suggest that you wait until later on Friday to do so.

 

Player Registration – As stated in previous emails, all Players must be registered on-line as Active prior to playing. If anyone is still having difficulty with this, please contact the SPO office at (905) 646-7773.

 

Alcohol Consumption – This really shouldn’t be necessary to mention, however, this is a reminder that there is NO DRINKING OUTSIDE OF ANY LICENSED AREA, INCLUDING ANY PARKING LOT. We will have ZERO TOLERANCE for this. Any alcoholic beverage being consumed in the parking lot will result in the suspension of the involved teams. Even if only one person in the group is drinking, all involved teams will be penalized. If someone near you is drinking, either stop them or leave the area. Please make sure this Policy is clear to your Players and friends and families. This is the same for all parks we visit this year. Help our hosts - our partners – as they are the ones that suffer when the police catch offenders. Thanks to everyone for your anticipated cooperation with this.

 

Accommodations - We have negotiated special rates for SPO Super Series teams at various London hotels and lodging facilities. A complete list can be found on the Super Series website under Accommodations. Be sure to tell them you are a Super Series team when booking. You must call direct to get the SPO rate - please do not book on-line unless you are staying at Four Points by Sheraton. As always, we appreciate and thank you for your support of the businesses who support SPO and our Tournament Programs. We remind you that Ramada London (Exeter Road, London) is not a business in good standing with SPO.  Given this, we are asking teams to not support this property location.  Teams insistent on staying at the Ramada London will not be welcome in any SPO Events.  Should you have any questions, or require any further information with respect to this matter, please contact Tom Buchan directly at (905) 646-7773.

 

We hope everyone has a great season and we thank you for your support of our Association.

 

See you on the diamonds!
