COVID-19 Update - MODS SUSPENDS ALL PROGRAMS

The Manitoba Organization of Disc Sports has set the following goals to guide us during the COVID-19 outbreak.

  1. The health and safety of MODS members and personnel.
  2. The health and safety of the everyone in the communities where we live. 
  3. Resuming programs and services as soon as it is safe for our community. 

MODS is suspending all leagues and programs until further notice

As we continue to take in advice from the Health Minister, Sport Manitoba and other leaders in the medical and sport fields we have made the decision to suspend all leagues and programs at this time. We are working towards resumption of programs at a later date if possible.

As MODS has suspended all of it's leagues and activities indefinitely. Re-evaluation will be done at the end of March. Our staff will be reaching out to members during this time to work on other key aspects of Ultimate; Spirit of the Game, gender equity, strategic plans and continuing education for coaches and other ideas and programs of importance to our community.

This remains a complicated and rapidly evolving situation that reminds us that we are all part of a broader society with a responsibility to look out for one another. That is what MODS will continue to do, and we are grateful for your understanding and being the best community in sport.

Summer Program Registration – Monday March 16th

All spring and summer programs will open for registration as scheduled on Monday March 16th. School leagues will begin at the end of April and adult leagues will begin at the start of May. We encourage teams to still register, as hopefully the virus peak will have passed by April/May. If you later wish to withdraw, we will provide a full refund if you withdraw prior to the close of registration on May 1st.

A refund policy for any cancellation of games during the summer will be posted before May 1st.

The virus poses risks, but continuing to exercise is also very important for health & well-being.
