COVID-19 Guidelines

COVID-19 Guidelines

Players and families are expected to follow the guidelines below while playing ball during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.  As the situation changes, these rules may be modified as needed to keep pace with the situation.  

Please be prepared to practice social distancing at all times (maintain 6 feet of separation at minimum) and adhere to the rules below so we can have a safe and successful season.

COVID-19 Game and Practice Rules:

1) For T-ball and Coach Pitch levels, players should wear masks while playing at all times.

2) For Player Pitch and Above, players should have masks on them, but do not have to wear them on the field and when they can be socially distanced. We feel that when they are playing/practicing, they are unlikely to be within six feet of one another for extended times, but if they are in a group being given close instruction, or on the sideline conferring, they should wear their masks. 

2) Players should store their gear and water along the fence line and not in the dugout and the fenceline is where they will wait while they are the batting team.  At some fields or play levels, players will be required to wait with their families when not in the field.

3) All families should maintain social distancing of 6 feet apart while at our events. Masks are only required when social distancing cannot be maintained. 

4) Families should bring a small number (2-3) immediate family members per player maximum (2 max per player when on town fields - Douglas Field or Pennell Field). It is encouraged that additional siblings be cared for at home. All fields have a limitation of 100 outdoor guests including players and coaches.

5) No Equipment May Be Shared. Each child will have their own helmet, glove, catcher’s gear and bat. If players require equipment, they must check it out from the equipment bin for the game. All loaned equipment will be sanitized before and after the game. Catcher's gear will be sanitized by coaches or by the team Covid officer between players.

6) There will be no water provided. It is your responsibility to pack your child their own individual water bottle and snack. No sunflower seeds. No Gum.  No Spitting.

7) We will be providing hand sanitizer for the kids to use. Use of sanitizer is highly encouraged - especially before eating or drinking.

8) There will be no hand shaking or physical contact amongst coaches or players at any time other than in-game situations (tag-outs, plays at a base).

10) Before each game, please register your attendance in the Team Manager app and fill out the Covid Check for your player.

Again, please be patient as this list is ever changing. We appreciate your cooperation during this difficult time, but really look forward to getting your son/daughter back to playing baseball/softball.
