To the PIT Football Membership:

Considering ongoing concerns resulting from the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and in support of suggested recommendations from Manitoba Health, we are extending the stoppage of the PIT Outdoor season until at least July 1st. A point of clarity that needs to be made regarding the Province of Manitoba's "Pandemic and Economic Road for Recovery" announcement on April 29 which referenced a return of "non-contact children's sports" as early as June 1. This does not include the sport of touch or flag football. While we often refer to touch or flag football as "non-contact". "Contact" is defined as any sport or activity involving ANY physical contact (i.e being able to maintain "social distancing" while playing the sport). So long as there are social distancing stipulations in any Manitoba health directives, PIT Football will not resume play. We will continue to reevaluate our position on starting the league as more information regarding social distancing requirements become available.

The league has created schedules for various shortened season scenarios. We will be ready to play once social distancing requirements change if and when that may occur this summer. Our priority is to provide the best game day experience in recreational sports and that includes providing programming in a safe environment. We will not start the league if there is a health danger to our players, officials, staff, or spectators. We thank our membership for their understanding and hope that everyone is safe during this unprecedented time.
