RE: UPDATE on Back to Play (B2P)
Unfortunately, it has become necessary to reschedule our start date for B2P to August 1, 2020 (original date was July 20th). With more to the “vetting process” than originally anticipated, and some documents of support to finalize, we are confident we will have final approval for our plan by July 27th. Once approved we will roll everything out then, for the August 1st start.
We appreciate your patience (as well as your support) in this process. Bringing activities back to our athletes is the most important “next step” in these challenging times. And it is an understatement to say that we want to do this in the safest manner possible. Thank you.
