MBGC REGARDING CORONA VIRUS 7/1/20

Good Evening All, 

 

The Prince George's County Boys and Girls Club (PGCBGC) is continuing to work closely with our partner organizations, local and federal government officials regarding the resurgence of COVID 19 in the Prince George's County area. We are monitoring all Maryland Health Department advisories and adhering to CDC guidelines as it relates to the outbreak and youth sports. The PGCBGC is looking at all methods to mitigate concerns and possible exposure to our great student athletes and their families and are volunteer staffs. So, after careful consideration, and recent local and national events, we have decided to suspend all the PGCBGC’S 2020 FALL SPORTS activities and events through December 1, 2020.   

We hope to resume activities as soon as it becomes safe for our players and their families.

The Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local health authorities are still focusing great attention on prevention methods such as:

  • Along with following other tips, cover mouth and nose in public with a cloth face covering
  • Stay at least 6 feet or 2 arms' length from others
  • Wash hands often and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home
  • Don't touch your eyes, nose or mouth
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with your elbow or tissue
  • Listen for instructions from your local government about staying home

We strongly encourage you to check out the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as the Maryland Department of Health websites for more information regarding the Coronavirus Disease:

Rian Jackson

President, Prince Georges County Boys and Girls Club

Hello All,

 

As we continue to conform to the various protocols to combat the spread of this global COVID-19 pandemic, your board continue to hope and pray that each one remains safe. We received word that all PGCBGC activities are now suspended until June 1, 2020. This suspension cancels the 2020 Spring Sports Season. Therefore, it is time for us to move forward and begin initiating sport refunds or credits.

 

The following sports labeled “Cancelled” are eligible for either a refund or sport credit:

 

Spring Tackle Football – Cancelled

Spring County Soccer – Cancelled

3/4 Pewee Spring Soccer – Cancelled

Spring Flag Football – Cancelled

Spring PeeWee Flag Football – Cancelled

Spring Wrestling – Cancelled

 

To ensure an expedited and efficient process, the sport commissioner or their administrator are taking the lead. Each commissioner or their perspective representative will contact each sport registrant. Based on your reply – they will compile a list which will direct whether you prefer a refund or sport credit. Once the commissioner has completed their list, the commissioners will in-turn forward the document for payment or credit to our treasurer and registrar.

 

Once the list is received by our treasurer and registrar, we anticipate the transaction to be completed within a forty-eight (48) hour/2 day turnaround period.

 

Regarding those sports still waiting official notification, more information to follow. If you have any questions concerning those sports, please consult the perspective commissioner. To date:

 

Spring Tee Ball – TBD/Pending Final Notification

Spring Lacrosse – TBD/Pending Final Notification

Spring Baseball – TBD/Pending Final Notification
