Grant Youth Baseball Parents - December 2020 Update

 

We hope that you and your families are healthy and safe this holiday season. As your Grant Youth Baseball board of directors we’re continuing to plan for the 2021 spring season based on the latest information we have about COVID-19 and plans for a vaccine. 

 

With the recent COVID-19 case surge and public health restrictions, we unfortunately are not able to offer an organized indoor winter training program. We are committed to sharing monthly updates with you this winter leading up to potential winter workouts and tryouts in late winter/early spring.

 

Based on the latest information we have about volunteer parent coaches, Junior Baseball Organization and tournaments, we wanted to share some key highlights for our 2021 season plan:

 

  • We plan to field four teams in spring 2021. That’s based on the number of volunteer parent coaches available and the expected player registration.

    • 14U Travel Team at the Federal level (1 team)

    • 13U Travel Team at the American level (1 team)

    • 14U/13U (2 teams) at the American and/or National level
       

  • We may have enough players for a fifth team, if we can recruit another set of volunteer coaches. It’s possible we will have enough players register to compete at the National level. But we don’t currently have coaches identified to allow us to organize a team. If you’re interested in volunteering, please let us know via email.

  • 2021 spring season will be delayed about one month: Based on the latest updates from the Junior Baseball Organization, we expect the spring season will be delayed about one month compared to a normal year. Here is our tentative 2021 schedule:

    • January: Grant Youth Baseball board hosts parent meeting through Zoom

    • January/February: Winter workouts, pending public health guidelines with COVID-19

    • February (late): Spring team tryouts

    • March: Spring team practices begin

    • April: Exhibition games begin 

    • May - August: JBO season

Thanks for your patience and flexibility with our plans as we all do our best to navigate the pandemic. If you have any questions or need any additional information, please don’t hesitate to reach out to one of us directly.

 

Sincerely,

 

Grant Youth Baseball Board
