Spring Registration is Now Open!
Registration for the Spring 2021 season will run from December 1, 2020 to February 7, 2021 for ages 4-12. Registration for Teeners (ages 13-18) will run to February 28, 2021. Registration is an online process available here on our website. Full information can be found by clicking on the Online Registration tab above and the registration brochure. At this time, we anticipate that COVID-19 protocols will continue to be followed and a waiver will need to be signed by the parent/guardian of any child who desires to participate. Player evaluations for Majors, Minors, and Sr.Pony will be scheduled in mid to late February. Teeners evaluations will be held in March. More information will follow after registration is closed. There are no evaluations for TBall/Quickball or Jr.Pony.
UNDERSTANDING HOW COVID-19 SPREADS
As per the Governor's guidelines on youth sports, we are committed to educating our baseball community on the symptoms of COVID-19 and how it spreads. An excellent article on how the virus is commonly spread is available at: https://www.wsj.com/articles/how-exactly-do-you-catch-covid-19-there-is-a-growing-consensus-11592317650. Please take a few minutes to read this article and explain to your children. This article highlights why it is so important that adults wear face coverings when unable to social distant. Again, gaiters, which are worn around the neck and can be easily pulled up as needed, are a great option for coaches. If you identify a coach that is not adhering, please politely say something to the team manager. If lack of compliance remains an issue, report the infraction to the Board by using the contact us page at our website.
Our COVID-19 safety protocols provides a list of symptoms of COVID-19 and when to stay home. Please review and make sure that you are self policing yourself and family members. Remember that a reading over 100 degrees is an automatic NO PARTICIPATION in any baseball activity.
If you or your child have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or awaiting test results, please isolate as per CDC guidelines and notify your team's Manager immediately and the UAMBA President Mike Bonini at email@example.com. The League President will notify the parents of all players on that team and in that division. The name of the person will remain confidential. The UAMBA Board will then discuss next steps as it relates to continuing baseball activities for the team, level, and/or league.
