COVID-19 GUIDELINES AND REQUIREMENTS FOR SUMMER PLAY

The Greater Keene Youth Baseball and Softball Association will hold youth softball following all State and CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

We will require our coaches to have their temperature taken prior to every practice. The no-touch thermometers will be kept in the Snack Shack and two coaches will meet there before practice to take and log each other’s temperatures.

Coaches will clean all equipment at the beginning and end of practice as well as prior to and after use by youth

Coaches will remind parents and youth to bring their own equipment and will ensure groups of 9 youth remain 6’ apart or wear masks if this can not be maintained. Equipment should be placed 6’ or more apart as well.

Coaches will clean all equipment that is used by more than one youth after every use and ensure youth use hand sanitizer or wash hands after using shared equipment.

Coaches will screen youth by asking the following screening questions:

                Have you been exposed to COVID-19?

                Have you had a fever in the last 48 hours?

                Do you have a cough, sore throat?

                Do you have any new muscle or body aches?

Any youth who respond “yes” to any questions will be sent home

Coaches will ensure youth wash hands or use hand sanitizer after touching face, coughing, sneezing etc.

Coaches will ensure no use of dugouts or bleachers during practice.

Coaches will ensure no chewing or spitting of seeds etc occur during practice.

Coaches will ensure youth do not switch groups or mingle with more than the group of 9 youths they are assigned to during practice.

 

COVID-19 Update, as of 6/1/20:

Dear GKYBSA community,

We'd like to thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigated this difficult situation.  It was our strong hope and desire to be able to successfully hold a Cal Ripken baseball season for our community and children.  Giving them a structured environment for team work, safe interaction with friends, a place to burn off energy and get exercise, time to be a kid {free of today's worries}, as well as give parents a chance to breathe for a few minutes.  Unfortunately, due to the stringent, but necessary, guidelines set forth by our Governor and City of Keene, again all to protect our community, as well as timing (the City has other projects and camps that would coincide with our season) we didn't feel that this would provide the most enjoyable or successful season for our various levels.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2020 Status on the Various Leagues:
* For Cal Ripken Baseball in Keene (Tee Ball, Rookie, Minor and Major) we’ve made the decision to cancel our spring / summer season. 

* 9-12 Year Old Athletes - Minor or Major League:  We are thankful that Swanzey Cal Ripken (who has slightly different guidelines) is teaming up with us and inviting our 9-12 year old athletes to play baseball in their Minor or Major leagues!  At this time, community matters.  It take a village, and we're so appreciative that Swanzey Cal Ripken is a part of our village.  We encourage anyone interested to visit their website at www.swanzeycalripken.com to register. While they’ve not yet determined the start date, registration is now open. They are also looking for coaches.

Softball (all levels) and Babe Ruth Baseball:  We are excited and working diligently preparing to have a Softball and Babe Ruth Baseball season under GKYBSA this summer.  More details will be available soon!!

If you would like to elect the "Strike Out" option - Your refund check will be in the mail in the next few days (please allow 7-10 days to receive it).  Your refund will be $3.00 less than the registration fee total, as the $3.00 service charge by Blue Sombrero is non-refundable.  Please be sure to email both [email protected] AND [email protected]  You will receive a response that your request was received.

If you would like to elect the "Rain Delay" option
- Your registration fee will be applied to your 2021 registration.  Please be sure to email both [email protected] AND [email protected]  You will receive a response that your request was received.

If you would like to elect the "Home Run" option - We greatly appreciate your support and generosity - your payment will be donated to GKYBSA!  This league is run by volunteers, but there are many expenses associated with ensuring a safe, up to date, sports league.  We will send you a donation letter with our league's tax id number for you to be able to claim this donation on your income taxes.  Please be sure to email both [email protected] AND [email protected]  You will receive a response that your request was received.      

We are looking forward to next year, more than ever!  We hope your family has a great, safe, summer and we thank you, again, for being part of the GKYBSA family of ball players!!
