Hi CLL Families,
PLAY BALL!!!! Colonie Little league is excited and pleased to announce the start of the 2020 baseball season at Cook Park.
2020 Little League season will begin on Saturday, July 11th and run to the end of August (8/29).
As of yesterday, the Governor Cuomo has given permission for low contact sports to begin their seasons on July 6th, 2020. That includes Little League Baseball. Based on those permissions, Colonie Little League has also received permission from the Village of Colonie and Albany County to begin our season.
Over the past couple of weeks, Colonie Little League has been working with the Village of Colonie and Albany County to create a return to play plan for a fun and safe return to baseball at Cook Park for our players, coaches, and spectators.
ALL PARENTS/GUARDIANS are to review our return to play plan and are required to sign a waiver to participate in this season. The waiver release is a mandatory requirement and if not signed your child can not play this season. The waiver release form is posted to CLL website. Your team manager will be collecting the signed waivers at your first team meeting and/or practice.
In addition to the waiver, there are additional safety precautions that will be mandated. The village has agreed to our safety plan and will monitor Colonie Little League to verify that we are following the proper precautions. Our latest plan is posted on the CLL website. CLL recommends everyone to read the plan and if you have ANY questions, please reach out the league. Please understand that our safety plan is subject to change, as we move closer towards Phase 4 and adhere to any changes from local and/or state governments. Please continue to check CLL website as the return play safety plan is a live document and will be updated as required to maintain the health and safety of our community.
Immediate Next Steps;
Parents/Guardians this is IMPORTANT, the league is in the process of confirming that all registered/paid players for the 2020 baseball season will be playing this season. As a league we need to confirm that your child is going to play to ensure teams are complete so that we can finalize the game schedule and use of fields.
For Majors/Intermediates/Pee Wee Divisions: Teams have been created and players have been assigned to their respected teams. If you are registered to play at one of these levels, your team manager will be reaching out to you in the next few days to confirm that your child is going to play this season and look to collect the waiver release form from you.
For Jr Pee Wee and T-Ball Divisions: Teams are being created and players will be assigned. If you are registered to play at these levels, a league official and/or team manager will be reaching out to you in the next few days to confirm that your child is going to play this season and look to collect the waiver release form from you.
PLEASE RESPOND TO YOUR TEAM MANAGER AND/OR LEAGUE OFFICIAL THAT IS REACHING OUT TO YOU AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, JUNE 19TH, 2020.
Look forward to seeing our community, families and the kids back at Cook Park for some baseball.
