To our Bellies family,
For more than 130 years, the Salmonbellies have made New Westminster and all of Canada proud. Our club has played Canada’s official summer sport at its highest level, and we have done so with a consistent spirit of family, resilience and discipline. In these trying times, those values matter more than ever.
As you may have heard, the Western Lacrosse Association has announced that our 2020 season will be delayed, and that other changes may become necessary as our circumstances evolve. It’s a decision that our club fully supports because we want you to be well. We are doing our utmost to be hopeful and ready for a 2020 season. Whenever we play next, we hope that you’ll be ready to join us too. Whether you’re a supporter, a sponsor, an alumnus or a current member of our club, we want to let you know we’re thinking about you.
If our community’s fortunes improve enough to allow us to play, we will be excited to get together once again at Queen’s Park, but we will need to ramp up quickly.
We know that you’ve been going through challenging times too, so we realize the need for realistic expectations, but there are ways we can support one another:
Season ticket holders: Please keep your ticket for now. We’ll be sure to offer you a refund for any games we don’t play.
Fans: Stay tuned and help us to fill the seats during the season. Your support will mean more than ever.
Sponsors: If you know that this season will be a tough one for you, please reach out to us. We want to return the support you’ve offered us over the years. Let’s stay connected so we can get back to normal when our economic picture improves.
Club Members: Players, volunteers, alumni, staff and directors, please stay in touch and be ready.
Everyone: Let us know if you need anything!
The strength of the Bellies has always lay in something much bigger than the skill of our players. It has always been our sense of community that made the difference in our pursuit of excellence and during challenging times like these.
Thank you for being a member of our Bellies family. Stay safe and well.
