Update to 2020 Season Schedule and Rules

CYBL Families,
As we've mentioned before, the board of directors has been working hard in conjunction with the Riverside Local Schools to put together a plan for the upcoming season. We understand many of you have been eager to learn the rules by which the league will be operating and we are very appreciative of your patience. As you all know, this is a fluid situation with ever changing rules and guidelines so we've been careful to feel confident that we can move forward with a season based on the most recent information. With that said, the Ohio Department of Health's Responsible RestartOhio announced the approval for no/low contact recreational sports to begin play. Shortly following the announcement they issued a list of guidelines that were then updated a few weeks later. Attached you will find the most recent guidelines for your review and they can be downloaded here: Responsible RestartOhio

The next step for us after reviewing and understanding these guidelines was to confirm with Riverside when we would have access to the fields at LaMuth. I'm happy to announce that we have been granted access as of today, June 1. As we have said all along, our goal is to provide the opportunity for the kids to play baseball this Summer in a safe and responsible way. In that spirit we've determined that we can move forward with a slightly updated schedule and modified rules. 

***To be clear, in order to provide the opportunity for the kids to play this Summer we will be adhering to the attached guidelines. Also, to avoid confusion regarding masks - as you will read in the guidelines, MASKS are NOT mandatory. We are working on sourcing a vendor to provide t-shirt style masks for kids since they are part of the "Recommended Best Practices" in the guidelines.***

Our current schedule is as follows: (will we notify of any updates)
Registration Deadline will now be 11:59pm on June 7th
Cancellation Deadline for full refunds is now 11:59pm on June 11th - after this date cancellation requests will be reviewed by the board
Practices should begin no later than June 20th (this date is highly dependent upon the coaches/field availability)
Games should begin on or around July 13th and the season will conclude on or around Aug 28th
Picture day is July 11th and more info will follow
Field Cleanup Day is tentatively set for Sat, June 13 and more info will follow; we will definitely need volunteers given the shortened time frame and all you need to do is show up
Dick's Sporting Goods Day will be announced shortly - this is a great opportunity to get your kids' gear for the season at a discount so we'll be sure to send a message out as soon as it's scheduled
3rd Annual CYBL Golf Outing has been rescheduled for Sat, Sep 26th at Little Mountain Country Club
Sponsorships are also still very welcome so please reach out to [email protected] if you are interested in sponsoring a team.

Lastly, many of our surrounding communities have cancelled their leagues for various reasons. We are an open enrollment league so if you know of anyone that is looking for an alternate league please direct them to our website: www.concordyouthbaseball.com.

We're very much looking forward to another fun Summer of baseball and can't wait to see you all down at the fields!


Best,
Concord Youth Baseball League
