League Play Resumes June 15th

Silverbacks Players,

The wait is over…..Silverbacks 7v7 Leagues will resume play on Monday, June 15th, 2020!

For the past several weeks we’ve been working behind the scenes to reach out to every team captain to gain an understanding of how many teams/players were ready to play. While we were unable to get a decision from some teams/players, we learned that 75% of players were interested in resuming play as early as June 1st.

Our plan is to pick up the schedule where we left off for each respective league and complete our normal nine game season. For example, our Wednesday teams played two games in the current season. We will schedule all Wednesday teams, resuming play on June 15th, for seven more games in this new season. This allows us to both spread out our work managing the various league nights and directly ties into how we are handling all credits for the interrupted seasons.

Show me the money! We are not forcing any single player or team to return before they feel it is safe. Anyone that wishes to remain out of the league for a little while longer is encouraged to do so and if you are owed any money, we will issue a credit to your Silverbacks account no later than June 8th, 2020. Account credits will not be issued to players on rosters for teams that resume play on June 15th because they will play the usual nine game season and therefore will not be owed a credit. Account credits can be used towards future league fees and/or parking passes and will never expire. To use your account credit you can call or text 404-410-7410 or email leagues@atlantasilverbacks.com.

If your team is out and you as an individual still want to play, we have two options. First, we expect to create new teams from the teams that are unable to resume play on June 15th. Tyler Lord, your League Commissioner, will be reaching out to all players and working to form as many new teams as possible in advance of June 15th. More details to come on that in a separate email from Tyler tomorrow. Second, we have our new field concept that is great for 5v5, 6v6 or any sports related activity for that matter. The field is 35y x 45y available right now from 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM daily for the “Shutdown Special” price of $50 per hour. All fields are separated by a minimum of 6 yards from any other field. Reserve via phone, text to 404-410-7410 or email leagues@atlantasilverbacks.com, receive an invoice via email and pay online. Quick, safe and easy! Fields must be reserved and paid for in advance of arrival to the park.

Silverbacks Bar & Grill is open Monday through Thursday from 6:00 PM until close. Come enjoy a safe meal with your family on our huge patio! You do not have to rent a field to visit the restaurant.

As a reminder, the following safety procedures have been enacted for your safety:

  1. All Silverback’s staff are screened prior to starting their shift using a thermometer and checking for visible signs of illness: coughing, sneezing, runny nose, loss of taste, rash etc.
  2. We sanitize all doors, faucet handles, sinks, toilets, and any other high touch areas every hour.
  3. We are currently not accepting cash at the park or in the restaurant. All payments will be contactless. In order to facilitate a contactless transaction in the restaurant we will add a minimum gratuity of 18% to all orders.
  4. Parking fees are waived through June 14th.

We hope that you and your families are doing well and staying safe during this time! Hope to see you soon!
