Attention Northside Families,
We hope everyone has continued to stay safe and healthy during this very difficult time. This message is being sent to each and every family who was registered for spring 2020 Northside baseball or softball. Please read this email in its entirety as it provides an update as to where the extended fall league stands and includes information on registration. The Northside Board of Directors has been busy getting the proper protocols in place to ensure to the best of our abilities that we provide a fun and safe place for kids to play ball. The league will be implementing several new rules that must be followed in order to keep the facilities safe for everyone. These rules are currently being finalized and will be sent out to families shortly. With these added procedures in place, we are hopeful for a great season. All players will also be required to sign a ”Return to Baseball” waiver from our Babe Ruth League prior to stepping foot on the field for practice or games. The form will be emailed to all families. All coaches will have paper copies of the waver at the first practice for parents to sign, as well. Players can expect to hear from their coaches by Monday, July 20th. Team practices will commence Saturday, July 25th. Games will begin on Saturday August 8th and will continue through the weekend of October 24th. As has been the case throughout the pandemic, this plan is subject to change should Albemarle County or the Governor mandates a return to phase 1 or 2.
If there are any parents who had a child registered for spring 2020 but has not filled out our google form, this will be your last chance to apply your spring fees to the fall season. Please follow the link below to fill out the google form.
We can not accept any responses after 7/22/20.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing everyone out on the fields again soon!
