FALL CO-ED OPEN SOFTBALL LEAGUE REGISTRATION POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

(posted on 7/10/2020 @ 2:35pm)

Due to the recent rise in positive COVID-19 cases in our area, registration for the fall Co-ed Open League has been postponed, as well as the season.  The City of Fernandina Beach's sports fields will remain closed longer than expected, so the league will not be able to begin on August 3rd.  New registration dates for the fall league will be posted on this website when they are determined.  Please also keep up to date with the City of Fernandina Beach Government Facebook page and City website (www.fbfl.us) for new registration dates and COVID-19 status changes in regard to the re-opening of the City's sports fields.
