We have finally received information giving us a better idea of what the state is planning regarding youth sports allowing us to provide a brief update.
The state is hoping to allow youth sports to resume in June, however they are going to hold off making a firm decision until the middle of May at the earliest (we assume they will make the determination after they see if new cases of Covid-19 remain flattened after the Safer-At-Home mandates are implemented).
Please know that we are continually working on all possible contingency plans for each sport currently affected so that once we are given a firm date will be able to proceed promptly with whatever plan(s) is appropriate for each sport.
As always, we are available by email on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at email@example.com.
NOTE TO OUR AYL BASEBALL FAMILIES
REVISED ON 4/9/2020
The AYL Baseball Board wanted to update all of our baseball families regarding our current planning towards having a 2020 baseball season! As always, please continue to rely on your Club’s volunteer Baseball Director for specifics for your child/team.
As most of you know the Governor announced Monday night that he may be lifting the Stay at Home order effective April 26th. Similarly the Federal Government has continued theirs until April 30th as has the City of Denver. Based on this information the AYL is actively PLANNING for restarting our 2020 baseball season effective on May 1st!
We continue to believe it is very important to offer all of our players some baseball as soon as possible to help alleviate all of the stress currently being caused to them through no fault of their own! At this time many things are being reviewed such as availability of fields for practices and games, status of umpires, and timing of our end of season tournaments. The planned specific game schedules will be updated on our website in the very near future.
In summary we are planning on starting our AA program as of Saturday 5/2/2020, restarting our C-Prep program as of Monday 5/4/2020 and restarting our AAA/M program as of Friday 5/1/2020. In each case games will be scheduled with an expectation of a need for some potential make-up games being required, due to weather cancellations, so we can make sure every teams gets their guaranteed number of games during this season.
We are also planning to have our Rockies Night on Friday June 12th to celebrate all of our players and to allow them to parade on the Coors Field warning track. Stand by for more information on the Rockies Night coming in early May!
For now please contact your specific Club’s Baseball Director with any questions you may have.
