Back to the BallPark Guidelines

Posted by Valley Petunia League at Jun 15, 2020 11:08AM PDT ( 0 Comments )

Please review these resources and refer to “Back to the Ballpark” guidelines attached.

Of course every field is different, and each league will need to adhere to these as closely as possible, while outlining any field-specific concerns or adjustments before each game with the opposing team. We will review them in further detail after we have a definitive # of teams and divisions laid out.

These are only recommendations and we will have to trust that each coach will use common sense and good hygiene practices so as to keep players as safe and healthy as possible.

Update 5/14/2020

Hello Coaches,

I am forwarding the guidelines that USA Softball has recently released. Please review the attached document and feel free to share with administrators and/or parents from your league or town for discussion. Note: "The items listed in this document are suggestions of recommended practices for

restarting USA Softball events. State/Metro associations, Recreational Leagues,
Tournament Hosts, Staff, Athletes, Coaches, Parents, and Spectators should
continue to follow CDC, Federal, State and Local governmental guidelines.
Feel free to make your guidelines more stringent if you deem necessary.
Remember that information and recommendations during the pandemic are very
fluid and are subject to change."

We still feel that it is too early to make a final decision regarding this season, especially with many of the participating cities currently being in the red phase of re-opening though early June. We hope the upcoming few weeks will provide some clarity on when, and if, we will be able to proceed. I am also forwarding a link that provides several At-Home Drills for athletes and additional Covid-19 resources for both adults and children: We encourage any feedback, ideas, suggestions, thoughtful discussion, etc. and want to thank everyone for their continued patience.

Update on 12U Valley Season

Posted by Valley Petunia League at Mar 29, 2020 5:17PM PDT ( 0 Comments )
As I am sure most of you are aware, schools and sports programs are still suspended and so far undecided on the rest of the year’s schedule. We will continue to monitor the situation and follow any national or state guidelines that are put in place to protect our health and safety. With that said, we are going to cancel our April 6th scheduling meeting until further notice. While we remain hopeful that we will be able to have our season in some form, we are not able to set any dates or confirm anything more at this time. We received several great suggestions during our last meeting on how the season could be adjusted or compressed, and we welcome further input from league reps or coaches. We will re-evaluate the potential season dates in two weeks and send out a correspondence at that time on how we are going to proceed. We appreciate everyone being patient and understanding while we work on a resolution. As always, please feel free to reach out to us with any concerns or questions,
