Update on Spring Season

We hope you and your family are staying safe and healthy over the last few months.  We want to give you an update on the Little League season.

 

Little League International wants all leagues to have some type of regular season (if their state and local governments will allow it).  Little League International has cancelled the regional tournaments and the world series for all divisions.  Individual states can hold district, sectional and state tournaments. 

 

For Farmington Little League, we are waiting for the state to lift the restrictions and allow us to play games.  We also need the Town of Farmington to open the fields for play.  We would assume this would happen around the same time.  Our goal is to start the regular season in early-to-mid June, and finish by end of July. 

 

Depending on the length of the season, we could offer some type of credit to your registration fees for the season.  If you do not want your child to play in the spring/summer season, we will offer you a full credit to your registration fees (to be used for future registrations), or, by request, give you a refund for the full amount.

 

We are planning on having a Fall season similar to prior years as long as the conditions are favorable to do this.

 

We should have more information to communicate within the next 2 - 3 weeks.  Also, we are also preparing a survey to send out to all parents to get your feedback.

 

Hope to see you on the fields soon.

Temporary Suspension/Delay Extended to May 11

Dear Little League Volunteer,

This is much bigger than Little League®.

The COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic is rapidly changing the way that we, as global citizens, think, act, gather, learn, and live our daily lives. And, yes, that also means how we play Little League.

With the most recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Little League International Board of Directors and staff is now strongly advising all its local Little League programs to suspend/delay their Little League seasons through no earlier than Monday, May 11. We implore you to follow this recommendation and suspend all Little League activities through no earlier than May 11.

We recognize that this is the heart of the traditional Little League season, and we share in the great disappointment that many are feeling surrounding this additional pause in the 2020 season. However, it is our hope that by doing this, we will all play a small, but important part in flattening the curve in the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

We will continue to consult with appropriate medical advisors, government health officials and our volunteer leaders around the world, and we are committed to doing the best we can for the safety and wellbeing of our players, families, volunteers, and fans.

As this situation evolves, Little League International is committed to sharing the best guidance possible for all of our 6,500 leagues in more than 84 countries. It is our sincere hope that we can find ways to bring everyone back to the Little League fields this season, whether that’s later this spring or throughout the summer.

Currently, Little League International is working through all possible scenarios for the 2020 Little League International Tournament and tournament eligibility for our leagues and players in our various divisions of play.

Little League will continue to provide additional guidance on the impact of delaying the season and has developed a series of FAQs available at LittleLeague.org/Coronavirus. We are committed to sharing information as it becomes available on issues like player eligibility and tournament participation, charter and insurance status for the year, and A Safety Awareness Program plan deadlines.

We also will be sharing guidance on how to resume operations when appropriate, best practices for handling the financial implications, and how you can communicate with parents and families in your communities about this delay in Little League activity. This information will continue to be developed and shared on LittleLeague.org/Coronavirus and through all of our communications methods.

There are countless resources available, and we urge you to follow the information available through World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), your state’s public health department (click here for a listing of state public health departments ), and other county and/or local authorities including precedents set by area school districts and government agencies.

We encourage you to stay in touch with Little League and share any additional feedback or questions from your local communities by emailing SeasonUpdate@LittleLeague.org.

Thank you all for your support, understanding, and community leadership. We will be thinking of our global Little League community during this difficult time.

Sincerely,

 

Stephen D. Keener
Little League President and CEO

Farmington Little League Monthly Board Meeting

Our next Farmington Little League Board Meeting will be on Sunday, April 5.  This meeting will start at 7:00pm via video conference (details will be sent).

The main topic of discussion will be the ongoing delay of the start of the league.

 

Anyone can attend Board meetings, and we encourage parents and volunteers to attend these meetings.  We are projecting that some of our long term board members will be leaving at the end of this season, and we will need some new volunteers to help in running this league. 

Attending these meetings will give you a better understanding on how the league is run, but also the amount of volunteers needed to have another successful year. 

 

thanks!!

Farmington Little League Executive Board
