After examining the guidance and recommendations from the CDC, The PA Recreation and Parks Society, Little League, and Gov Wolf, we have outlined the following guidelines to allow us to resume baseball activities during these uncertain times:

GENERAL GUIDANCE

  • All coaches, players, and fans shall practice social distancing on and around the field at all times
  • Each team will be limited to a maximum of 5 coaches/parent umpires on the field at one time
  • Games and practices will be staggered to limit the amount of people at the park. Please do not arrive more than 30 minutes before your game
  • Limit fan attendance to immediate family only (must live in the same household)
  • Fans are not permitted to use the bleachers. Please bring your own chairs and maintain social distancing around the field at all times
  • Coughing or sneezing shall be into the inside of your elbow
  • If you or your child are not feeling well or have any symptoms, please stay home
  • Each parent is asked to take your player’s temperature prior to each activity and refrain from attending if that temperature is above 99.5 degrees
