The Spring Season has Resumed

Please read the Protocols we have in place to keep everyone as safe as possible

Below is important information on changes regarding the season, as well as health and safety guidelines specific to baseball which will be implemented when the games begin the week of June 15th.

 

Schedules

All schedules for TBall through 8th grade have been posted in DASH. We will have a single elimination post season tournament for all grades from 1st grade and up. The practices schedules for those teams that purchased them will be sent out for the first week, then the remaining weeks in their entirety.

 

Rosters

Coaches, please check that the correct players are listed on your DASH roster, especially if your team merged with another team.

Coaches are to bring a completed lineup card to every game and keep up with their pitching certification form. Click on the link here to view and print the pitching certification form---à http://www.psaplano.org/files/baseball/psapitchingcertificationsept2016.pdf.pdf

 

Uniforms

We are allowing teams who have merged to simply wear the SAME color shirt with temporary numbers or their uniforms from their original team when available. Every player must be on the team’s game roster.

 

Coaching Badges

Since the buildings will not be open for Coaches to obtain a physical badge, please use the following procedures:

  • New Coaches – Please complete our coach’s application. When you have been approved, you will receive and email with instructions to print a copy of the email and bring to the game along with your driver’s license to show to the official.
  • Lost Badge – please send us an email and we will email you with instructions to print a copy of the email and bring to the game along with your driver’s license to show to the official.
  • Expired Badge – Please complete our coach’s application. When you have been approved, you will receive an email with instructions to print a copy of the email and bring to the game along with your driver’s license to show to the official. If your expired badge has an expiration date between March 2020 and August 2020, this will be acceptable.

 

Safety Protocols and Guidelines

Most importantly, we want to be safe as possible as we restart baseball. We are taking a conservative approach and the below information will serve as your guide. Every person who attends a game or practice has an obligation to follow the Protocols and Guidelines below before they leave their homes.

Participants includes parents, players, coaches, staff, officials, volunteers, and any spectator. Our purpose is safety first which includes some of the guidelines steered toward a conservative approach. We want to ensure all parents and guardians recognized the enhanced risks of being in contact with anyone age 65 or older for 14 days after attending a sport event or practice.

 

 

 

 

Prior to Practices or Games

  • All Adults to ensure the players and themselves are healthy by checking temperature before activities with others. Do not attend trainings or games if anyone is exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever, cough, difficulty breathing, or other symptoms identified by the CDC.
  • Players or Adults should not attend trainings or games if they have been in contact with someone with COVID-19 within the past 14 days.
  • Consider no carpooling or very limited carpooling.
  • Parents and Players should remain in their car until the field and sidelines of previous events have cleared.
  • Parents should stay in their car or at least 6 feet from other non-family spectators and should not approach non-family players. You MUST bring your own chair if you plan to sit outside and MUST position yourself 6 feet from others.
  • Parents or spectator should wear a mask when at practice or games. Players do not have to wear a mask.
  • Bring your own hand sanitizer to practice and games and use when not on the field.
  • Ensure the player has his/her own equipment (ball, water, bag, etc.) and is told not to share with others.

 

During Games and Practices

  • Players distance to 6’ in dugout or along the fence. Each ball field will have its player distancing configuration and player flow on and off the field.
  • Number of coaches not to exceed four per team who are participating in the game.
  • Coaches avoid clusters of players and should use a mask when speaking to the players.
  • Water bottles should have players name on it.

  • Coaches disinfect (Lysol or wipes) balls and equipment prior and after the game.
  • Coaches disinfect bats and Catcher gear if changing during the game.
  • Keep Player belongings separate.
  • Coaches should publish batting order in advance so that parents know when their child is up to bat and to facilitate organized distancing.
  • Notify your coach or manager immediately if the player becomes ill for any reason.
  • Do NOT engage in handshaking, hugs, high fives, during training or games
  • When the game and practice is over everyone should leave the fields immediately so the next event can arrive at the field.
