“The Nutmeg State Games mean so much to so many people in Connecticut. It’s given thousands of kids a chance to compete and have fun—what sports should be all about.” - Kevin Nathan, Sports Anchor, WVIT NBC 30
Due to the evolving nature of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and the threat it poses to public health, we've made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 ShopRite Nutmeg State Games scheduled to be hosted by the City of New Britain in June, July and August. The challenges and uncertainty that COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has presented make it impossible for our organization to appropriately plan, organize and put on our numerous sporting events in a safe environment.
We understand that many of those teams and individual sport athletes who have registered, or considered registering for the Nutmeg State Games, will have questions. Our intent is to provide answers as soon as possible. However, we ask for your patience as we work through the large number of details while our staff is having to work remotely under state and local government “stay at home” mandates.
For all 2020 ShopRite Nutmeg State Games registered teams and individual sport athletes, we will contact you about choosing one of three options:
Transfer your registration to the 2021 Nutmeg State Games.
Donate your registration fees to the Nutmeg State Games. The Nutmeg State Games is 501(C)3 Not-For-Profit Corporation registered with the State of Connecticut as a Public Charity: Registration #: CHR.0005080
Receive a refund via the original payment method minus any transaction fees.
Please know that we are committed to the health and well-being of our participants and will be taking the necessary steps to help prevent the spread of the virus and keep everyone safe once we are able to run our events in the future. We look forward to be back to business with the ShopRite Nutmeg State Games hosted by the City of New Britain in 2021.
Further updates will be posted as they become available. We thank you all for your support and hope everyone is staying safe, staying healthy and finding ways to be active during this challenging time.
