2020 Season Update

We hope this update finds you and your loved ones doing well!  Each and every day I think about how fortunate I am to be part of the community we live in, seeing kindness in the face of adversity serves to bring me the greatest hope!  Experiencing all of the sunshine as of late has been fantastic and my hope is that it has brought some uplift to you in this challenging time!

As a board, we are still planning on having a season this year.  It will obviously not be in line with the traditional seasons we have experienced in the past.  If you could imagine being that 12 year old player who has been a part of the league since T-Ball, spending countless hours practicing, knowing that this will be their last year with a chance to go to Williamsport, we owe it to them to continue to plan and hope to get a season completed.

There are many factors that will play into us having a season.  Our number one priority is the safety of our players and community, which we will continue to follow the Governor’s guidance on social distancing.  We rely heavily on our local school fields for practices and games.  For post season play we rely on our fellow Little Leagues in District 7 and will have to coincide with their schedules to make a season happen.  We rely on the generosity of our sponsors to help fund improvements and offset league costs.  Most of all we rely on our community, our volunteers, our players and our fans to make everything happen.  Thank you for your patience with us as we continue to navigate through the challenges that have been placed in front of us!

Little League International is set to have a Board of Directors Meeting on April 24th, 2020.  We expect to hear an update to their current recommended start date of May 11th.

Governor Inslee’s Stay Home, Stay Safe order is in place through May 4th, 2020.  We expect that there will be another press conference where the Governor will announce updated guidelines in the coming weeks.

Below is what a season would look like if the Governor lifts the social distancing requirements:

·         May 4-11 – Communication with teams

·         May 12-31 – Practices

·         June 1 – July 31 – Season Games

·         August – All Stars

We met as a board this past Thursday where we had a robust discussion about our league.  We are a non-profit entity that uses sponsorship dollars and registration fees to support 100% of what we do as a league.  We ask for your continued patience and want you to know that we are working both on a process for having a season this year and for the years to come.  We have received many questions about refunds, and we are working on a process for that as well.  We will be transparent with our expenses for 2020 to give you an understanding of league associated expenditures.  Please continue to give us time and know that we are doing our best to ensure the safety of our players and the health of the league.

We thank you for your patience and understanding while we all navigate what has been put in front of us.  Please stay healthy and follow us on Facebook or visit our website for additional content and news, especially if you are looking to do some activities at home.

For the safety of you and your family, please follow the Washington Department of Health and CDC guidelines for this virus.  Thank you in cooperating in taking steps to reduce the transmission of communicable diseases in the workplace.  All involved are reminded of the following:

  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Wash your hands frequently with warm, soapy water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Cover your mouth with tissues whenever you sneeze, and discard used tissues in the trash.
  • Avoid people who are sick with respiratory symptoms
  • Clean frequently touched surfaces.

 If you have any questions please reach out to a board member or email [email protected].  Follow us on Facebook or on our website for the most up-to-date information.

Sincerely,

John Hentges
President
