ISC Canada East Qualifier cancelled

from Blair Setford

The provincial situation stemming from the coronavirus pandemic is slowly improving, but given the current pace of normalization, regrettably we are cancelling the 2020 ISC Canada East Qualifier, which had already been rescheduled for July 17-19 in Mitchell.

Health and wellbeing for our players, officials and fans was always the first priority and given the pace of re-opening across the province, we don't see how we could be in a position where we could safely hold our tournament in mid-July based on the way events are unfolding.

Any Canada East teams that are interested in playing in the 2020 ISC World Tournament - which is still being planned contingent on local and state conditions - should contact the ISC prior to July 1 directly through Executive Director Larry Fisher at

We want to thank AJ Moses, in Mitchell, as well as Trevor Topping, our UiC, for the work that they had done in helping us plan for the qualifier. If circumstances permit, we will still look to run the Ontario Challenge Cup - and potentially look at affiliation with one or two other events - in late summer/early fall. More information will become available as things develop.

As always, we thank all of our teams and officials for their continued loyalty with the ISC and we look forward to safely returning to ball diamonds hopefully in the not too distant future.
