May 5th Update:
DOUGLASS RECREATION SUMMER 2020 UPDATE!
Baseball and Softball season are not cancelled, but will look different this year. Due to Covid-19, the Quad County League will not be traveling to other towns. Each town will be planning their own summer ball programs and the traveling Quad County League will return to traveling next summer, 2021. The decision was incredibly hard to make but the league felt this was the best way to keep everyone safe and healthy!
In order to make this work, team make-up/size will have to be adjusted. Since we will be doing this “in house” this year, we have a lot of leeway with group size and age groups. There is a lot going on here, so I will bullet the major points:
If events change, causing us to make adjustments to these plans, we will update at that point. Hoping for a smooth, safe summer season!
April 20th Update:
The summer season has NOT been canceled at this time, but all accounts have been refunded for summer activities. If you don't receive your refund on your account, please notify me at the end of the week. I apologize in advance if I missed you! If you paid by check, they are not cashed, and I can return those to you at a more opportune time. The league directors are meeting Thursday, April 30th to discuss possible options for the season. Please contact us no later than May 1st if you are NOT wanting your child to play.
March 19th Update:
We are still adjusting to the news. With so many uncertainties, it is not fair to promise time tables or guarantees of games. Our goal is to still get at least part of the season (adjustments of fees would take place once that is determined). At this time, the league directors are planning on meeting the first or second week of April. We are communicating by email now, but with the information constantly changing it isn't overly productive.
Things that we are sure of:
- All fields/facilities on school property will be off limits until AT LEAST May 29th.
- Practicing as a team is currently not advised/endorsed by the Rec, but playing catch with parents/siblings IS allowed AND encouraged! View it as PE time!
- This is a great time to step back and look at what's important. We understand there is stress from the unknowns and possibly financial stresses. Our kids are the most important thing, and how we deal with these stresses will form them.
If you have any questions or concerns, PLEASE don't hesitate to call, text or email!
Stay safe out there!
