Youth sports organizations feel heat of COVID-19

Some offer refunds, others do not with survival at stake
Durango Youth Softball and Baseball games won’t be played on Folsom Park this spring in Durango. The league canceled its season because of the COVID-19 pandemic and was unable to issue refunds for registration fees while facing the potential of bankruptcy if it did.
The Durango Shootout soccer tournament brings more than 2,000 people to Durango each Mother’s Day weekend for the last 25 years. But that wasn’t the case in 2020, dealing a big financial blow to the local soccer club that issued refunds to each team that was registered.
