Spring leagues canceled, affected players to get fully reimbursed with site credits.
Due to the mandatory ‘Stay at Home’ law issued by our Michigan Governor this week and for our members’ safety, we have canceled the remaining spring season. We want to ensure that the affected members have received a full credit for the season they were unable to play.
- For full teams, this credit will be applied to the team captain’s SSC profile. Please contact email@example.com for any credit transfer requests.
For individual registrants, this credit will be applied directly to their SSC profile.
credits will be added to affected members’ SSC account by 3/25/20 and can be viewed in their profile by clicking the green credit icon, located on the upper right-hand side of the screen.
For members who have not yet registered for the Summer season and wish to lock in their spot, registration remains open online and affected members can use these credits towards any new registrations at the time of check out. If there are any delays for future seasons, members will receive full value in the form of season extensions or SSC credits.
We appreciate your understanding during these unprecedented times. Your participation in leagues is what makes the SSC community so wonderful. We look forward to getting everyone back in the game as soon as it is safely possible.
We wish you and your friends/family/teammates all the best during this challenging time.

The Sport & Social Club has decided to postpone the next 3 games (3 weeks) for the safety of everyone in hope to help suppress the spread of the coronavirus. We will be working with our venues to get your games rescheduled with the goal of resuming April 6th.
The Sport & Social Club has always aimed to be the best part of your day by providing programs that are safe, fair, and fun for our community. With that said and in light of the most recent information regarding COVID-19, we have decided to press pause on your next 3 games to help suppress the spread of this disease and to uphold our goal to keep you safe.
We will continue to monitor the situation and base all future decisions on the recommendations of the public health organizations in our regions and will continue to provide updates by email and to this page. You can also stay informed by regularly visiting Michigan.gov/Coronavirus and CDC.gov/Coronavirus.
While the situation is constantly evolving, we are hopeful that after this brief hiatus, we will be able to return to play and have as many games made up as possible. While the status of your remaining games is unclear, we will provide all teams with an update regarding the potential completion of your season by April 3rd, if not sooner.
We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding while we work through the logistics associated with this situation. We respectfully ask that you hold off on any questions regarding potential make-up games/compensation until the picture becomes more clear on April 3rd.
While this is a difficult time for everyone, we know that sunny skies and brighter days are on the horizon and we are looking forward to getting back on the court/field so that we can all keep playing the sports that we love and help make our community great.
Your Sport & Social Club
Per the Governor's address, all schools in Michigan are closed as of Monday until April 6th. We will be addressing how this will impact your leagues and will post an update in the morning. Thank you again for all your support as we trek this uncharted territory together.
As the number of Coronavirus (COVID-19) cases identified has been growing worldwide and is now in Michigan, we want to assure you that your Sport & Social Club is keeping a close watch on its progress and impact. We are taking the situation very seriously and anticipate that our approach may change as we learn additional information. We will be keeping you up to date regarding the status of SSC games and our procedures.
We are monitoring this situation on an hour to hour basis.
We want to ensure all of our members protect themselves against this illness. The CDC has assessed the public health risk associated with COVID-19 as critical for people 60+ years of age with underlying health issues. Although the majority of our members are healthy and well below that threshold age of 60, we want to do our part to help prevent the spread of this illness while we do our best not to infringe on your ability to continue playing with us to help keep a sense of normalcy in your life (we understand that this is fine line).
As of this moment, SSC games are going ahead as scheduled, but we ask that all players adhere to the following expectations:
If you are feeling sick or experiencing flu-like symptoms, STAY HOME. Please do not attend your game.
Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds BEFORE and AFTER your game.
Do not touch your face. Players with long hair should tie it up to avoid having to constantly touch your head/face.
Do not share your water bottle and avoid touching the area you drink from.
Do not high five or shake hands with teammates or opponents. Don’t worry, you’re not being rude.
Understanding that attendance may be an issue for some teams, we have made the decision to relax our forfeit policy. AS LONG AS YOU NOTIFY US IN ADVANCE SO WE CAN NOTIFY YOUR OPPOSING TEAM, no team will be subject to a forfeit loss if they are unable to field a team. Scores instead will be recorded as a 0-0 tie. If you do not notify and do not attend, you will still be subject to a default loss.
What SSC is doing:
· At every location, our staff has a bleach disinfectant solution that they are using to clean all sporting equipment before and after game use.
· We are also staying in close contact with our venues to ensure they have proper cleaning/disinfecting procedures in place
· We are monitoring this situation on an hour by hour basis. We will update you by email and on this webpage with any new updates and changes.
Again, we will continue to communicate any ongoing updates and changes, as they become available.
The Sport & Social Club exists because of the value and connections built through sport. We do not want to lose this important part of our lives, but we want to be smart and safe as we continue to navigate this challenging and unprecedented situation together.
