News

 

As our student-athletes begin the

school year, we want to wish everyone 

academic success 

while continuing to follow and practice 

all the social-safety guidelines! 


 

August & September 2020:

As NYC slowly continues to reopen

and students begin to head back to school

either physically, virtually or 'blended',

we want to wish everyone a safe & fun

end of summer...hope you are able to make

some memories while while continuing

to practice all social-safety guidelines! 

July 20th:

-We have finally reached modified

Phase 4 here in New York City!

Continue to be safe and follow all the safety

protocols still in effect so we can continue

to move forward and 'open up' even more.  

If you are out there playing ball this summer,

 have a great time and make memories!!

We miss it here immensely and are

already looking forward to the 2021 season. 

July 6th:

As modified Phase 3 begins here in NYC,

we would like to wish the best of luck to any

of the local teams that are practicing and have

chosen to enter tournaments this summer

and / or fall either locally or out of state. 

Please continue to be safe and make as

many great memories as possible !! 

June 19th: 

As NYC enters Phase 2 on Monday - June 22nd, 

we are happy and hopeful that our city will

continue to move in the right direction.  

We know there has been discussion that NYC

may enter Phase 3 sometime in July with the

beginning of limited-restricted youth sports

practices and then lead up to the start of

game play.  If and when this happens, there 

will still be many restrictions, concerns and

uncertainty.  We still haven't heard about any

public permits going back into effect and

some private fields have told us they may not

open or open with restrictions such as the amount

of people in  attendance (if any), players/coaches

in dugouts, social distancing, masks, sanitizing

procedures, etc... Just as much as anyone,

we want to see the kids play ball together

again and have a 'normal' summer, but we

have still decided to continue to err on the

side of caution and NOT organize or conduct

play in 2020.  We understand this may not be

the popular decision / opinion and that others

may choose to do so and give you options.

  We support you and your individual teams /

organizations if you choose to compete locally

or outside the city during the summer / fall.

 If anything changes, we will continue to

update here and also via email, text, etc.

June 3rd:

As NYC enters phase 1 on Monday - June 8th,

another email was sent out by the NYC Parks

Department to permit holders reminding them

that all athletic field permits are still suspended

until August 31st and there should still be 

no use of the athletic fields for any organized

gatherings, games, practices, drills, etc. 

Also, they said they will update everyone about

the fall when there is information to share.

May 14th:

Original email was sent to permit holders from the NYC Parks Department saying:

"In an effort to mitigate the spread of

COVID-19, the decision has been made to

cancel all athletic permits through August 31st"

...in result

THE BROOKLYN KIWANIS BASEBALL LEAGUE  

 has decided to cancel all

Spring / Summer League 2020 play

Though parks are open for exercise and

recreation, there is still no decision by NYC

to reopen athletic fields and issue permits. 

We hope to be back with all of you safely in an exciting and highly anticipated 2021 season.
