Attn: Chatsworth Chiefs Families,
First and foremost, we hope you and your families are all safe and healthy during these difficult times.
Following the cancellation of this year’s LAUSD School year, USAT&F and Conference Track Season, we wanted to follow up with more information about this unfortunate, but necessary, decision and provide additional updates. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding over the course of the last few weeks as we navigate an increasingly complex and serious situation and make difficult decisions that impact us all.
The global COVID-19 pandemic is unprecedented, and so too is the 2020 Track & Field Season cancellation, which took a global health crisis to occur. Since our first Track Season in 1984, our policy has been that any and all registration fees are non-refundable. Unfortunately, because the vast majority of event expenses (Uniforms, field Permits, etc.) have already been incurred [and paid for], we are not able to return entry fees for the 2020 Season. Doing so would compromise our ability to continue operations, to deliver our mission, and would severely jeopardize the future of our non-profit organization. We appreciate your understanding and continued support.
The Chatsworth Chiefs is a not-for-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization with the mission to “acquaint and educate youth with the fundamentals of the sport of Track and Field.” All of you are our reason for being, and we do everything we can to turn those words into results.
For those who did not pick up their uniforms & warm-up suits, we will have them to distribute to you after the covid-19 pandemic social distance ban is lifted. This will take some time, so please be patient.
Please note that your registration fee qualifies as a tax-deductible donation since the Chatsworth Chiefs is a non-profit organization approved for such donations by the IRS: To get your charitable donation receipt or if you have any additional questions please do not hesitate to get in touch with us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will continue to provide additional updates as they are available and look forward to building our team for the Cross Country Season later this fall and our Track & Field Season next year. I sincerely hope you are all able to enjoy your family time together right now and continue to work out as you are able - even if it’s a family walk every day.
Thank you for being part of our amazing track and field family and for your understanding in this extraordinarily difficult time for all of us. Please take care of yourself, your loved ones, and your community.
