GGSL Families,
It is with great sadness that we are announcing that the GGSL season for the summer of 2020 has been cancelled. Even though Governor Hogan has lifted restrictions and is allowing outdoor pools to open, Montgomery County has not yet done so and many of the concerns relating to the safety of our kids and the parents, logistical issues and legal and liability issues remain and we just don't see any clear path that would allow for even a modified season this summer. It is not worth the risk of getting even one kid or parent sick as this pandemic has varying effects on everyone ranging from no symptoms at all to death. In addition to many logistical problems and restrictions, there is concern about legal and liability issues with most teams having no or very little insurance coverage. Bob and I have been corresponding for the last couple of months discussing our plans and have solicited the input of team reps and coaches and have come to the final determination that the season needs to be cancelled for this summer. We are hoping that each team can find a way to keep their kids engaged in some form or fashion. Graduating seniors who turn 19 before the cutoff date for the summer of 2021 will be allowed to swim again next summer in regular dual meets and relay carnivals, but will not be eligible for Invitationals or to break league or team records. We will recognize these 2020 graduating seniors at the 2021 Invitationals and possibly invite them to participate in an "exhibition" event or two. Teams may also want to consider doing something for their graduating seniors this year as some of them may not return next summer. As always, be safe and we will make this through this better than ever. We look forward to seeing you on deck in 2021!
