Hello Yellow Jackets! (for those who couldn’t attend our 1st and only practice, the kids voted Yellow Jackets as our team name)
Coach Nick and I were so excited about our team prospects right up until we received the text immediately after our 1st practice suspending the season. I hope you and your family have been safe and well during these last few months. The League is beginning to put together plans to start a fall season on August 8th - now this is of course if we are able to do so safely and under any guidance from the Governor and Local Municipalities. We are writing to poll our parents and players to see if they are willing and able to play in a Fall Season this year. The Fall Season would be treated as a 'Spring-like Season' this year much different than a typical Fall Season. We would have two games and one practice a week through October 10th. The goal is to keep our teams together as formed back in March. I’ve spoken to a parent at the Majors level who have already resumed some play. They have implemented a rigorous safety program related to COVID including face masks, closed dugouts, social distancing, and not sharing equipment. I realize a lot can change in a month and that everyone may be impacted differently and/or have different thoughts on safety and social distancing related to this health crisis. If you could just reply to me with a simple yes, no, or maybe that would be helpful in determining how we start in the Fall.
Thanks again and if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.
