Spirit Lake Youth Athletic Association Cancels 2020 Season

Sat 5-23-2020

(Spirit Lake)-- The little league fields in Spirit Lake will be silent this summer. 

The Spirit Lake Youth Athletic Association's board of directors voted unanimously earlier this week to cancel the 2020 season. Association President Larry Wajda says board members felt it was in the best interest of the community, players, staffs and volunteers.

He says refunds will be completely honored adding they are working with their processor on the best way of doing that. Wajda adds registration fees may also be directed toward the field renovation project currently underway. 

Team and field sponsorships will also be fully refunded.

Wajda says the fields are still available for use by children.

He adds that while the Spirit Lake Youth Athletic Association oversees and is in a joint partnership with Okoboji and Lake Park, the announcement does not mean that Okoboji Little League and Lake Park Little League have decided not to seek other alternatives. Wajda says they may decide to find an alternate solution for the year and have not officially decided to cancel.
