2020 League Status


Dear PBLA Family,

This letter is to just touch base with you regarding the upcoming 2020 season. We are less than a month away from the normal preseason open plays we typically host. Obviously Rizzo Rink will not be open in time for those open plays.

As far as starting the regular season on time, we simply have too little information at this point. We are working with the team captains to make contingency plans for a shortened season. While at some point we could have to consider cancelling the season, we are not considering that at this time. We’ll also pull out all the stops to ensure some sort of 2020 competition for the Frank & Doreen Menschner Cup.

Please stay in contact with your captains and teammates. Your captains will have the most up-to-date info that we have. On that note, prepare for the 2020 season. Not only do we believe we will play at some point, it will be good for you, and all of us collectively, to think positively and work toward a goal. Thankfully lax is a sport you can work on and still effectively practice your social distancing (Check out those videos on YouTube by the Black Storm’s Michael Sowers and so many other laxers).

Any major announcements will be distributed through our social media accounts and this email list.
