Latest Update on 2020 Season

Southline Families,

We hope this email finds you healthy and well.  We know everyone is anxious regarding the status of the season.  We thank you for the responses to our survey.  This year there are around 470 children registered for our programs from 302 families and we received back 288 responses to the survey so we thank you for that.  This upcoming week the Southline board will be holding discussions regarding the results of the surveys and what our options are and we will be making an announcement by the end of the week.  Please keep the following in mind:

1.  Any of the restrictions/adjustments/requirements that we would need to implement if there were any type of season are not based on decisions the Southline Board was able to make.  They are from requirements that were given to by Little League and local officials.  We decided as a board we would follow the requirements that were given to us if we are to attempt any sort of season this year.  We are not in a position to go against the requirements given to us. 

2.  In making our decision this week we have to keep in mind several factors including but not limited to:
     A.  The safety of the children to play and the practicality of game play with the requirements we were given. 
     B.  Availability of volunteers to coach, maintain the fields and implement requirements (sanitation of facilities and helping to ensure social distancing requirements) for play during a potential modified/non traditional time frame for our league.
     C.  Financial considerations regarding the running of the league including needed additional supplies, equipment etc...while taking into account the potential loss of team sponsorships and snack stand revenue.

3.  Please keep in mind that all board members are volunteers with children that play in the league.  We are in the same position as you regarding trying to navigate through all of this.

We thank you in advance for your understanding and looking forward to getting through all of this with the greatest sense of normalcy.  In the email that will be sent out by the end of this week (and posted to Facebook) will address all of your questions and outline our plan for going forward, if you have any questions before then please feel free to contact Nick LaMarca at [email protected] or Michael Rogers at [email protected]

Respectfully,

Southline Little League
