Slo-Pitch Ontario Insurance

This year, we are registering with Slo-Pitch Ontario (“SPO”). As in the past, they will provide us with things like scorebooks, access to prizes and awards, invitations to their Ontario Championships, and liability and secondary accident and health insurance coverage for our players.

SPO has changed their registration process for all leagues and players. Instead of the per team insurance fee that we previously paid, our League will pay an administration fee based on the number of teams we have. Then, each individual player will need to register themselves as a SPO MEMBER.

You will need to login to SPO’s Member Registration System, accept a Release of Liability, Waiver of Claims and Indemnity Agreement, and then pay an annual Member Fee ($15.00 + HST = $16.95). The Member Fee will provide you with proper insurance coverage for participation in ANY SPO-sanctioned league, tournament or event. This means that it does not matter how many SPO-sanctioned teams you play on, you register just once and can play with any SPO team for the season (subject, of course, to any ratings or classification restrictions). You only need ONE (1) Profile in the SPO system. Each Member must have a unique email address.

To assist with the process of registering, SPO has easy-to-follow Step-By-Step Guides that provide instructions and information for New Members, Returning Members, and Team Contacts, as well as ones to assist with the Payment process.

As a registered and Active Member of SPO, you’ll also have access to a digital SPO Membership Card, available through the SPO Mobile app, as well as deals, coupons and promos from SPO, and their Corporate Partners, through the SPO Rewards Program.

If you need help with the registration process, SPO staff are available Monday to Friday, between 9:00am to 4:30pm, and can be reached by phoning (905) 646-7773, or by emailing spoa@slopitch.org.

No players will be allowed to play in any games unless they are registered and paid with SPO. You can register at https://slopitch.org/.

Also, the league registration fees were set with the expectation that the league would pay the insurance for each team. Since SPO is now set up with each player paying individually, the executive will look for way to return the portion of the league fee that was cover the cost of insurance back to the league/teams.

 

Online Registration Still Open

 

It was great to see the people who came out for the in-person registration. It had been over two years since seeing some people face-to-face (or mask-to-mask).

In-person registration for returning players might have been on Feb 28, but online registration is still open. New players can also register.

Players from 8+ teams have signed up, so far.

Even if you paid your fees in 2020, you still have to register for 2022.

If you want to play, but you no longer have a team, register and we will find you a spot.

There will be an in-person registration for new and returning players on March 21 at Terry Miller Rec Centre, Room 2 from 7-9pm.

Contact us at bramslammers@outlook.com if you have any questions.

 

 

 

COVID Policy Update

As we near closer to registration and the start of the 2022 baseball season, the executive wanted to provide an update around the City of Brampton’s Covid policies. Bramslammers, and by extent the individual teams within the league, will be following the regulations and polices put forth by the City of Brampton.

At this time, the City of Brampton does not require players of outdoor sports teams to be vaccinated. We will continue to monitor the everchanging situation and follow the rules set out by the City of Brampton. Information about the banquet and the COVID regulations around attendance will be provide closer to the date and will also follow the City of Brampton’s guidelines.

We are excited for the start of the 2022 softball season, and we hope to see many people at the registration on February 28th at Terry Miller. If you have any questions, reach out to any members of the executive

Registration for Returning Players Open

Online registration for returning players is now open.  You can pay by Interac E-transfer, or by cash or cheque at the in-person registration.  If you paid for the 2020 season, select that payment option and that will be used as your payment for 2022.
