Sunday July 12th - All Coed & Mens softball games are now canceled.

With everything gearing up we did want to cover the Covid precautions and rules put in place...please keep in mind, everything is fluid so these can even change on the fly.

1. First and foremost, please respect the rules put in place. Our league has players from every race, political affiliation, religion, ethnicity, etc. We ALL have different beliefs. This will only take ONE person for every league to be in jeopardy so please, no statements made in regards to these rules. We're simply following what's put in place so we can try and have some fun this summer!
2. If you're involved IN the game, you're not required to wear a mask but as you're arriving please keep one on from your car to the bench area. Benches may not be in place this year, so please try and social distance as best as possible on your bench area.
3. No loitering around in the parking areas before or after games. Wait in or around your cars until the previous game ends. After the game, head over to your bench area and congratulate the other team from there....No handshake lines. When the game is over you must leave the park. We have to limit interaction as much as we can.
4. No spectators for games are encouraged but we understand that it’s not possible in all cases. So we ask that you limit the spectators to as little as possible per team. (2 per team is ideal) They must be in masks and have to be socially distanced. If they are kids please keep an eye on them, keep them socially distanced but also not running all over the park.
5. There more than likely won't be any public restrooms this year. So please come prepared.
6. Some Hand sanitizer will be provided. Please use after plays made in the field at the end of the inning or stoppages in play. Please feel free to bring your own hand sanitizer also.
8. If you’re sick, stay home. If your spectators are kids please keep an eye on them and make sure they are social distancing as well.

Thank you everyone for remaining patient and we hope this fuels a fun competitive season.



Flag Football is now scheduled to begin Sunday July 26th and we will be at the kickball park. Flag Football registration will now close on the 19th. Rosters close on the 23rd.

*When we do return there will most likely be some social distancing guidelines we have to follow. (Limited spectators and public bathrooms will be closed off) As more details become more clear we will communicate them.

**Board 38 IAABO have suspended officiating due to COVID-19 concerns, therefore all basketball leagues are suspended until further notice. As soon as Gyms open back up and we are able to resume the leagues we will pick up where we left off. (Possibly late July)
