We wanted to reach out to each of you today regarding the ST7 Summer Cup. It was our hope to be able to continue to host our annual ST7 Summer Cup tournament as scheduled on June 6, but under the current health guidelines and state restrictions, there are simply too many unknowns for us to feel we can safely and securely host this for you, your athletes, coaches, and spectators. We are officially cancelling this tournament for this year but plan to host it again next season. We appreciate your consistent support of ST7 tournaments and hope to host your club again in the future. Wishing you all health and prosperity in the future.
