2020 Season Update 6-10-2020

Players, Parents, Coaches & Fans -
At tonight's board meeting, we went over the survey results to guide us how to run a season in 2020.  The majority of our survey respondents indicated that they would prefer a season that started earlier than they typical fall season, and ended prior to October.  
Thus, we have decided that we will hold a season that begins in mid to late July, and runs through late September. 
The schedule will closely resemble what is described below:

- Registration - Opens Monday,  6/15/20, Closes 7/8/20
- Draft - Mid July 2020
- Practices Start - Late July 2020
- Games Start Early August 2020 
-Games wrap up with a championship weekend for competitive divisions in late September 2020

Please note that we are still in process of putting together proper guidelines to run the season safely and securely, and those guidelines will include the proper social distancing measures that we will need to take when playing games and practicing.  We will distribute those guidelines as soon as they are finalized.  We will be taking all of the precautions that we possibly can in order to allow for a safe playing environment and to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  There will also be a COVID-19 waiver that will need to be read and signed off on at registration. 
One note for this season, we will not be playing weekend games (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) outside of possibly a kickoff weekend in early August and the championship weekend that will be played late in September for competitive divisions.   We may need to schedule rain out games on an occasional Saturday, but will do everything that we can in order to prevent that from happening.  We have heard the feedback that many survey respondents supplied that indicated that folks wish to reserve their weekends for possible travel and vacation time.  We will be trying to accommodate that feedback as much as we possibly can when we build the season schedule.  

Additionally, because some divisions (GCP, Majors) have not had a season at all since the Spring 2019 season, we WILL play a season in all divisions where we can field at least 2 teams worth of players. We want to give everyone the opportunity to play baseball/softball this season, so we will not be cancelling divisions as long as there are enough players registered to field two teams. 
An update will be sent out on Sunday, 6/14/20 to inform you all of the time that registration will be activated on 6/15/20.  We will also try as best as possible to have our guidelines published prior to registration kicking off..
