Season Cancelled - Letter Attached


Dear Little League® Parents, Players & Volunteers,

In more than 80 years of Little League, there has never been a season like this one. While we don’t have clouds of dust from sliding into the bases or the smell of freshly cut outfield grass, or a perfectly lined batter’s box and baselines, or family cheering in the stands, we do have community, and as a community we will get through this.

As we navigate this unprecedented pandemic, we have all had to make some very hard decisions that have kept us from playing baseball and softball and supporting the children in our community.

We have followed and awaited Little League’s and the State’s guidance until this point. As there are not concrete dates or answers, and due to the lack of available fields (as all fields we use are managed by Parks and Rec which is not scheduled to be opened by the state until Stage 4), we have decided to cancel our season.

While our expenses are limited this year, we still have expenses. These include registration fees, insurance, updating of the snack shack inside and equipment fees. Due to these non-refundable fees, the board has met and come up with the following options.

· Donate your child’s registration fee – to help offset annual expenses

· Roll over your child’s registration fee to next year

· Request a refund, less a 15% processing fee

When we do return to the fields, it will be more important than ever to think about those things off-the-field that make the Little League experience special – teaching life lessons; being kind and gracious to umpires, coaches, and opposing teams; and supporting your community.

The safety and well-being of all our families, friends, and participants is always paramount, and today, is more important than ever.

You can email [email protected] with your preference on the above options.  If you have any questions you can email there, or call Sandra at 530-859-2907 or John Kennedy Jr. at 530-859-1844.

We will be back and stronger than ever in 2021. We will rally around our communities, welcome all of life’s challenges, and leave a legacy of time spent together at Little League fields around the world. We are all in this together. We are one team, one Little League.

Thank you again for your patience, dedication, and understanding.

Until Next Season,

South Siskiyou Little League Board
