An important email survey has been sent out to all coaches regarding the possibility of a condensed season . If you have not received it, please send a request for the email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The survey must be completed by July 12th.
Please be advise that any teams holding practices or playing exhibition games are doing so at your own risk. SPN insurance is only available when play resumes. Teams and individuals are fully responsible for injury and property damage related costs.
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.
Ball diamonds have reopened in Burnaby for casual use only. NO ORGANISED GAMES OR PRACTICES ARE TO BE HELD !
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.

All weekend tournaments at Riverway Sports Complex have been cancelled for the months of May, June, July and August.
I hope you are all safe and doing well !
Guy Reid. League President.
Just to clarify. If we don’t play, you don’t pay. If there is no season, teams will have the option of a refund or a credit towards next year. If we play some form of a season, refunds will be made available based on what that season may look like.
I wish you all the very best.
