- Due to COVID-19, our season is currently on hold
Players, Coaches, Families and Volunteers of Bolingbrook Tee-Ball Association,
First and foremost, I hope this letter finds you and your family healthy and safe. Never in the 21 years I have been a part of the Bolingbrook Tee-Ball Association did I think I would be sitting down and writing you this letter.
It is with a heavy heart that I am announcing the cancellation of the 2020 Tee-Ball season. As a board, we have come to the conclusion that with the current restrictions in place there is just no way to have organized games and practices at this time.
We have all worked hard in the off-season to upgrade the Tee-Ball program allowing those players to see some coach pitching and re-vamped what was Coach Pitch into our Coach/Kid Pitch league (with the help of BYBL) in an effort to better instruct the players and get them ready for the next levels of play. We were excited to implement this and enjoy the season.
At the time we realized we needed to suspend the season, registration had been completed, try-outs for C/KP were held, rosters were ready to be released, and coaches had started to receive equipment. Thankfully we were able to suspend our other equipment purchases. As I know this hit everyone hard, as a non-profit organization, we’ve taken quite a hit as well.
As a board, we would like to present 3 options for you as the season is cancelled.
Roll your registration into next year. We will automatically enroll your child in the 2021 season in their appropriate league. You will owe no additional fees.
Request a partial refund. We will issue you a check back MINUS any dollar amount that you would like to donate back to the league to help us with season costs already incurred. We are happy to provide you with documentation of your donation.
Request a full refund. If you would like a full or partial refund, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will happily take care of that for you. We will process these as quickly as we are able to.
If you want to roll your child’s registration into next year, you do not need to do anything further.
I personally want to thank you all for your patience and your kindness. We have all been hit with so many additional challenges this year thus far. We truly believe we have the best coaches and volunteers and are so grateful for them. Our players give us so much joy and it is so gratifying to see these kids every year.
I also want to thank the entire Bolingbrook Tee-Ball Board. We are a 100% volunteer organization. In addition to tackling their at home challenges, they have given countless hours of their time trying to make this season happen. They certainly have been and continue to be an essential part of the Bolingbrook Tee-Ball program. If you would like to join us and volunteer some of your time for these great kids we serve, please contact me personally and we can talk about board responsibilities.
