That being said, we have to act quickly. Player registration is now open, must be completed no later than end of day,June 10, 2020, as we have limited time to produce schedules, coaches, field assignments, uniforms, umpires, etc.
Please note - we will NOT be collecting payment at this time, as the official go ahead regarding Massachusetts youth sports has not yet been given
Each age group will have a minimum and maximum number on its roster. If an age group does not meet the minimum number, we will look too other neighboring towns to combine with to form teams. If a team reaches it maximum, we will assist any additional girls over that maximum to join other towns. With the loss of the spring season for both youth and high school, we want as many girls playing softball this summer that want to as we can.
Safety is our #1 priority, so we will continue to review and enforce safety guidance as it becomes availableand we will do everything we can to return to the field in the safest way possible.
