Greetings Softball Families!

It has been great to see so many of you and our players as our fall teams have begun practicing at Maalwyck Park. We also want to again send a special thanks to the Town of Glenvllle for allowing us to play there. As we move forward, we just want to highlight the importance of the COVID-19 safety guidelines that we have in place. Our ability to play this fall depends upon all of us continuing to take the appropriate precautions.

The safety guidelines that have been previously shared and we ask you to review them if needed. In particular, we would like note: 

  • If you have not signed the COVID-19 waiver, please do so immediately. We need a signed waiver for all players and coaches before they can participate.
  • Players will place their equipment, water bottles, etc. in a designated area with 6-foot spacing in between. (The rocks at Maalwyck seem to be set up nicely for this.)
  • During breaks, team talks and other times when not actively practicing, all participants will observe 6-foot social distancing.
  • Coaches will wear masks/face coverings when coaching practices and games.
  • Players must bring their own masks and wear them anytime that social distancing of 6 feet is not possible.
  • Spectators are limited to two per player at practices.
  • Only players and coaches should be on the softball field. No family members should be on the field or interacting with players during practice.
  • If a player, coach or anyone in their household is displaying symptoms of COVID-19, they should not attend a softball activity.

Additionally, we want to reinforce that any player who has traveled to the states for which New York State has placed on a travel advisory list due to COVID-19 must quarantine for the mandatory 14 days upon their return to New York prior to participating in any softball activities. Any participant who is traveling to these states will notify their coach. (Travel Advisory Information: https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-travel-advisory)

Thank you for your cooperation with this information. We are so thrilled to have our players back together playing softball again, and even though this is an unusual season, we want to do everything we can to keep softball going and look out for the health and safety of our community. 

Sincerely,

Scotia-Glenville Softball League
