Hi Softball Registrants-
We have been monitoring the recommendations State and the CDC as we look at options for playing SlowPitch Softball this year, from looking at a delayed season, alternative formats, or a season cancellation.
Though a statewide commission was formed to create a catalog of sport return-to-play plans, it does not look like this plan will be inline with our Spring season. With very heavy hearts, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 SlowPitch Softball season.
What are the next steps:
We thank you for your patience as we havea worked through the options and the uncertainty during this time and if changes were going to be made to the CDC guidelines.
Looking forward to a great season in 2021! Wishing the best to your families. Stay healthy!

It's easy to be taken in by our own competitiveness and forget our manners when watching our children participate in games and practices. Many of the game officials and all of the coaches you will come in contact with are volunteers. Others are teenagers trying to learn how to officiate at a very basic level and earn a little money while doing so.
They are going to make decisions you don't agree with. They may even make some calls that are wrong. If you feel you must criticize someone, please do it privately in a calm manner.
If we all remember that Coaches coach, Players play and Parents cheer, everyone's experience with youth sports will be a lot more fun.
