❏ Personal health check - You are required, along with coaches and officials, to conduct a daily symptom assessment (self-evaluation) for you and your child. If you or your child have symptoms of fever, cough, or respiratory symptoms, or any known exposure to a person with COVID-19, you should not attend any Little League activity until you have been cleared by a medical professional.
❏ Equipment - Each player should have their own helmet, glove and bat. If equipment is shared it must be disinfected in between uses. If you do not have your own helmet and bat and need to borrow one for financial or any other reason, please notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
❏ Water and Sunscreen - You should provide your child with a large container full of water with that is labeled with his or her name, and plenty of sunscreen.
❏ Parent Attendance at Practices - If you cannot attend practice please ensure that you are available by phone at all times should your child need to be picked up. For levels AA and below, we suggest that a parent or guardian attend practice in case of an emergency. If you do attend practice, please adhere to social distancing guidelines. Because outdoor events are currently limited by state guidlines to under 100 attendees, we ask that you only invite members of your immediate household to GLL events this season.
❏ Dropoff - Please do not drop your child off at practice until you have verified that a coach is present.
❏ Dugouts - Dugouts are closed for the 2020 season. Please keep your child out of the dugouts before and after practice.
❏ Parent Seating - Benches and bleachers may be removed from the parks for the GLL season. We recommend that you bring a comfortable chair should you wish to attend practice. On warm days, popup tents are ideal to create shade - especially at Adams field where tree cover is sparse.
❏ Personal Protective Equipment - Players are not required to wear a mask when in active play, but you may provide your child with one if you choose. We will provide all GLL players with a mask with their uniform. Players should not wear medical gloves while on the field of play.
❏ Food and Snacks - Team snacks (e.g. oranges, cupcakes, etc), sunflower seeds and chewing gum are not permitted at GLL events in 2020.
Executing on a successful season for our kids is a team effort between parents, coaches and league officials. While we can never eliminate all risks, by following these common-sense guidelines we can maximize our chances of having a complete season for our kids.
It takes a community, and we can do this for our kids by working together.
