2020 SEASON

Southeast Community,

I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for being patient during this time of uncertainty. I am sure everyone has many questions, as does the Board members at Southeast. We have been digesting all the information as it comes out just the same as you all have. It seems like every day our country’s landscape is changing because of difficult decisions that are being made. Our Little League season is another experience for our youth that will be changed this year. The timing of all this is very unfortunate to our season.

This weekend, the Board of Southeast met to discuss our season. Like everything else, there were some difficult conversations we had and even more difficult decisions we had to make. Please know that we will always put the health and well-being of our kids and families first. Ultimately, we believe we have come up with the best solution for our park for the 2020 season.
We do plan to have a season this year. It will be a little different than in years past due to the delayed start, but we are excited to get the kids out and playing. Right now, we can’t start any activities until May 11th and we plan to start games on June 1st. That doesn’t give us a lot of time to get teams put together, uniforms ordered, and hold many practices prior to the games starting. We will do our best to try and make this as positive for the kids as possible, but we want you to be aware that we will be doing a lot of last-minute planning. We are doing our best to get everything planned out in advance for what we can control, but with the uncertainty of the changing times, we ask that you please be patient with us this year.

Some of the things we took into consideration when making this decision were the feedback from our district and other parks, as well as Little League International and making sure we follow the guidelines set forth by the CDC and WHO when we start our season.

We appreciate all you do for the kids and our park. It is a lot of fun to see the kids out at the park with big smiles on their faces. Our park will always coach the kids the correct way to play sports; with integrity and good sportsmanship. When they are taught that at an early age, they can carry that with them for the rest of their lives, and hopefully teach those traits to the next generation of Little Leaguers. When we were kids playing this, or any other sport, it brought great joy to us, as it does our kids. Now as an adult, it brings us great joy to see our kids with that same joy we had. I hope our 2020 season, although shortened, will be just as fun and memorable for our kids.

Scott Weber
Park President
