Hello TOWLL Families,

NYS has given youth sports the permission to resume practicing on June 23rd with games being able to be held after July 6th.  League VP's are currently working towards getting the kids back on the field.  As there is no "Opening Day" this year, each division is working on slightly different time schedules. At this point Boys Majors are slated to begin next week with most others looking at Mid-July returns.  Please be on the lookout for emails from your League VP's.

 

Linked at the bottom of this article you will find Reopening Guidance directly from Little League International.  This is a general guidance they have issued for the entire country and can be amended on a League level after consulting with Local and State guidance.  This guidance is a great starting point for us and all leagues as we begin to re-open and work to put together a season for our players this year.  The TOWLL Board met, reviewed this guidance and have decided to start our season following it.  As the season progresses and we as a State move through phases and State and Local guidance is changed, we will be amending it.  Any changes to this guidance will be noted on our website and also in a League wide email.  For example, in this Guidance Little League recommended keeping concession stands closed.  That has since changed and we will be amending it to fit our needs in a soft reopening.

 

Below are highlights of some of the main points.

 

-Wash your hands often, wear a mask, socially distance and keep 6 feet apart for people who are not members of your household.

 

-Anyone suffering from any Covid-19 symptoms should avoid going to the park.  If you test positive or come into contact with some who has tested positive, please contact playballintowll@gmail.com ASAP. 

 

-Players will not be required to wear face coverings while on the field.  They may do so at their own discretion.  TOWLL is looking into purchasing neck gaiters for all of our players/coaches this year.

 

-All Managers and Coaches will be required to wear face coverings at all times.

 

-Players will be required to put face coverings on as they leave the field of play.  We feel this is necessary as the season begins and work through ways to make social distancing work for the players as they wait to bat or are not on the field of play.  This is something we hope has a possibility of being amended if we can make the distancing on the sidelines work. 

 

-All Spectators are STRONGLY encouraged to wear face coverings especially if proper socially distancing cannot be achieved.

 

-Spectators should be limited to 2 per player whenever possible and all effort should be made to keep spectators to household members.

 

-NO handshakes, personal contact celebrations or post game handshakes.

 

-All bleachers will be OFF Limits for anyone who is not a player. These will be used as extended dugouts to make sure the kids keep proper social distancing.  Parents and spectators should avoid visiting their children in the dugouts or bleachers and instead have them come to you where you are seated.

 

-All spectators are encouraged to bring their own chairs/blankets and use the entire perimeter of the playing fields to watch the games. 

 

-NO sunflower seeds, chewing gum or food will be allowed in the dugouts or bleachers. 

 

-The use of shared equipment should be avoided whenever possible.  Shared equipment will be wiped down between player uses.  Label everything your player brings to the park. 

 

-Foul balls should be retrieved by players, coaches, or umpires.  No spectators should retrieve the ball.

 

Concession Stand

 

-We hope to open the concession stand this year selling drinks and prepackaged items.  No hot foods will be served this year.

 

-Volunteers working in the concession stand will have their temperature taken upon arrival and will be required to wear a face covering and gloves at all times. 

 

-Restrooms will be operated under a “one-in-one-out” policy. 

 

Some of this guidance may also be adjusted depending on division.  For example, If Tball proceeds we will most likely have our players sit with their families while their team is at bat rather than having the children in the dugouts or on the bleachers. 

 

Again, these are just some main points.  We suggest you read the attached guidance for more detail.  These guidelines have been shared with our League VP’s who will share them with their Team Managers who will then share them again with our TOWLL Families. 

 

We want to have a season for our ballplayers but now more than ever our TOWLL family needs to come together to make this work.  Please be kind out there and be respectful of everyone.  If we all work together we can make this is seamless as possible. Please remember everything about this is new to all of us and we are all working with the best interests of everyone in our TOWLL family at heart.

TAKEN FROM THE YOUR VOICE SECTION OF THE LITTLE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL WEBSITE

Barry from Nebraska – I registered my son and two daughters for the coming Little League season and was surprised at how much information was needed. Why is so much paperwork required to just sign my kids up?

Little League – When registering a child to participate in a local Little League program there are two options that may be used to establish eligibility. If you reside within in the league’s boundaries you have proof-of-residency documents that are needed to establish that you are eligible to be playing in that league. The other option to establish eligibility in a local league is the location of the school where the child/children attend. If the school is physically located inside a league boundary, then the child/children is/are eligible to play in that league. In each case, there is paperwork/documentation that must be completed with the local league. If your child qualifies under both criteria, either may be used. Player registration can be done in a variety of ways, and it depends on the local league how it chooses to operate. Volunteer registration also requires forms to be signed, beginning with the Volunteer Application. Again, the paperwork helps local league officials manage the administration of a local league. Getting the paperwork in order is not meant to be an inconvenience, but it is necessary to help operate the league efficiently within Little League’s Official Regulations and help ensure children are participating in the appropriate local Little League program.
