MADISON LITTLE LEAGUE CORONAVIRUS UPDATE 5.4.20

MLL Community,

Hello.  We hope that everyone is doing as well as they can be during this time that COVID-19 has us in.  Best wishes and thoughts and a thank you to those that are experiencing this pandemic as a first responder, or other areas of life.

I'm writing to give you information as we know to this point and to guesstimate what we may be doing this summer.  First and foremost, we are staying cautious while trying to be patient so that we can hope for a better tomorrow than today in terms of activity for our children and ourselves. 

As you may have heard-Little League International has canceled, for the first time, the softball and baseball LL World Series.  They still are holding out hope that district and state championships can happen in the 9-12 age range.  With that in mind, here are a few topics to give you information.

Refunds for spring ball are available to whoever wishes to receive one now. 

There are a couple of reasons why we haven't canceled the spring season.  MLL realizes that local and state municipalities may open the fields for use during the summer.  Right now, we are offering families the opportunity to also ‘wait and see’ if we have a program in June or July. 

*LL has not decided if those LL programs that have canceled would be eligible to participate in as district or state tournament. We don't want to take an opportunity away from the 9-12 yr olds and thus are waiting till an answer is clear.

We hope to offer a few weeks to longer for all levels (T-ball to Majors) to get out and play some ball. 

But we also realize that no organized activities for youth sports may happen.

LL has decided that 12 yr olds will not be given a waiver to play Majors next year. 

Currently, LL of CT is hoping to have a state tournament that would probably go into late Aug/early September. If that happens, that could mean a shorter regular season and then a month of all-star activities.  They have a state meeting on May 12th and then will decide further at that time. We will have a better understanding of our summer, after consulting with the Town of Madison and following State guidelines.

Any time you register your child for MLL Mad Ball (Softball or Baseball), there is financial assistance available please don't hesitate to ask.

Our finances come from the registration fee. Still, we were prudent and did not have any outstanding economic costs.  And planned by tightening up our expenditures, so we can offer full refunds at this time as well as assist those in need. 

If we were to get the all-clear (not likely but possible), we know that the state and local closures are till at least May 20th.  The community is waiting on the school decision first. The understanding that family schedules would be changing as things open up, we wouldn’t anticipate a start before June 1st to allow people to get organized.

We understand what sports can do-even if it’s a short season.  We hope to teach them the game while also learning humility, impulse control, kindness, and good sportsmanship. We want them to learn how to win and lose graciously, treat others with respect (even umpires!), avoid name-calling, and become a good teammate.  While some contend that sports build character, I believe that it reveals character through the various opportunities to learn.  

To request a refund now, please contact 

 

Until we see each other again,

Stay safe, stay informed, and stay optimistic!

 

All the best,

MLL President Matt Anderson and the MLL executive board.
