2021 CHALLENGER BASEBALL INFORMATION
After finishing our very successful soccer season at the end of November, and cancelling our basketball season which should have been happening during the winter of 2021, thoughts now turn to the spring. In 2020, our baseball program was wiped out due to the fields being closed for the virus. 2021 is a different year. We are intending to once again play baseball.
You are receiving this form since you have been a Challenger participant. Yes, I know it is only January, and our lives now contain lots of question marks. However, there is no question in my mind that we can conduct a fabulous, as well as safe, program.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE SUBMIT THESE FORMS AS SOON AS YOU CAN. YES, I AM BEGGING FOR YOU TO DO THIS.
FEES: It is free for most of you. You do NOT have to pay the usual fee this year as you “paid forward” your registration fee from 2020. This includes almost all of you. Those who will have to pay later on include the three of you who requested a reimbursement, and those of you who did not register for baseball in 2020. The fee will be $45.00 made out to cash which is consistent with past fees.
DATES: Anticipated to be still on Sundays from April 18 through June 20.
COVID: Regrettably we still have to deal with it. The details will be given to you a couple of weeks before we start when you get your team assignments. We could be implementing masking, social distancing, hand sanitizers, temperature checks, cleaning of equipment, not using dugouts, not using the bleacher seating, etc. Final decisions to be made based upon our local health department, local little league, and CDC guidelines.
EQUIPMENT: We will continue to supply all of the necessary equipment for full participation. It is encouraged, if you choose to do so, to provide your player with their own bat and/or helmet. This is not mandatory, and several already do so.
Again, thank you all for supporting Challenger and for cooperating with the health protocols. Again, please send in the registration forms NOW so all of the “behind the scenes” activities can be completed quickly and efficiently.
