Dear CJT Families,
We hope this message finds you and your loved ones doing well and staying safe during this unprecedented time. Much like you, we greatly miss the camaraderie and sense of community that organized youth sports helps bring to Cary-Grove.
Cary Jr. Trojans looks forward to returning to the practice floor and football field, but we need to do so in a manner that is safe for all of our participants and volunteer staff. Therefore, we are suspending all activities until further notice from public health officials.
In this time of uncertainty, we want to keep you informed of steps we are taking for program registrations, payments, and planning for the coming months ahead:
Walk-in registrations and cheer/dance uniform fitting are postponed until further notice. This includes the Sunday April 5th walk-in registration. In the event we are not able to have in-person fitting in time to meet ordering deadlines, we will have a system in place for participants to electronically submit sizing.
To help minimize financial risk to our participants while still allowing the CJT organization to pay necessary operational expenses, CJT has extended the deadline for 100% full refunds until June 1st. After June 1st, we will move to a prorated refund (full fee minus $65).
We will continue to monitor developments closely and share all updates with you in a timely manner. We have the resources in place and are fully committed to providing a rewarding football, cheer, and dance program for your child to participate in this season, once we get the approval from our public health officials that it is safe to do so. Thank you for being part of our CJT family.
Cary Jr Trojans Board of Directors
