Most spring sports leagues and events cancelled
Residents are reminded that all City of Cranbrook parks and trails remain open to the public currently, however all public events and organized sports activities scheduled for the spring including park community events, soccer, baseball, lacrosse and others have been cancelled until further notice, amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Local slopitch teams organized through Cranbrook Slopitch are encouraged to still register by phone or online so your activity is ready to play once city play fields reopen to the public. Questions about registration for other sport leagues should be directed to your local sport association representatives.
As for KEYSA activities: Soccer is on hold at this moment with hopes of still getting on the fields in May. “It may come to cancelling but that is not the case yet as many soccer organizations are still hopeful for a May start,” said the chair for KEYSA in Cranbrook/Kimberley in an email to e-KNOW.
