The association met on Wednesday to weigh the pros and cons of your daughters’ summer season. It’s with heavy hearts that our association has decided to cancel the 6U & 8U summer season. Many concerns came out of the questionnaire regarding your young child playing in the hot summer days, as well as, being able to maintain social distancing while trying to develop their softball skills. We will be starting the refund process late next week to allow each family to respond with their option. Please respond via email to our treasurer Tony ( firstname.lastname@example.org).
Option 1: Full refund
Option 2: Roll-Over
We are sad that your daughter will not be able to play this year. We hope you understand that the safety of our players are our top priority. As the fall creeps in please look for information in our emails and on our website regarding winter clinics, open gyms and registration for 2021 summer season. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out via email or phone.
