I am pleased to announce that the Angry Birds have won the 2020 Riverway Blood Drive challenge. They had a grand total of 45 donations. A huge shout out and thanks to everyone who participated.

I hope everyone is safe and well.

Guy Reid, League President.


Based on the results of our recent survey, we will not be returning to league play at the Riverway Sports Complex in 2020. I wish all of our community members and their families well and I look foward to seeing all of the team reps at our Fall AGM.

Guy Reid,


Riverway Slopitch Community

Riverway 2020 Season Cancelled

The 2020 Riverway slopitch season is officially cancelled. The league will be submitting a “return to play” plan to SPN and the city of Burnaby for their approval in the event an opportunity to play is presented to us for the latter part of July and for the month of August. The plan is also a prerequisite to the start of the 2021 season. The safety of our community’s members and their families is and always will be are number one priority.


The Riverway Slopitch Community is out for blood. Namely your team’s blood.

I am very proud to announce in cooperation with Blood Services Canada our inaugural Riverway Slop-Pitch Blood Drive. The blood drive will run from May 25th to August 25th and is open to all Riverway Community Teams, their families, fans and friends.

While the ball fields may sit idle, our community involvement should not. So let us all join together and demonstrate our communities’ strength by supporting other communities all across BC and Canada.

More details to follow, but in the meantime, check out our league’s Facebook page for more information.

I would like to thank Jen Thornhill and the Angry Birds ladies team for being the inspiration behind this event.

Guy Reid, League President
