Statement Regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)



Statement Regarding

Coronavirus (COVID-19)
 

Attention Cheektowaga Youth Baseball Families,

As information regarding the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to become available we have been evaluating the recommendations of medical experts around the globe.  Cheektowaga Youth Baseball is committed to limiting the risk of exposure of our players and their families in any way that we can.  As a result, we will be implementing temporary measures aimed at limiting the number of unnecessary attendees at events effective immediately and continuing through at least April 6th.  The list of events that will be affected follows.

  • Skills Evaluations scheduled for Sunday, March 29 has been cancelled.
    • While we use these evaluations to help evenly distribute players of all experience levels throughout all teams within each division we do not believe the benefits of these evaluations justifies the risk of possible exposure.  Rest assured that we believe that we can still do a good job of accomplishing our goal based on the coaches past experiences with the players.
    • Coaches for baseball divisions will meet in small groups to draft teams during the week of March 30th through April 3rd.
  • Travel scrimmages or other unnecessary large group gatherings scheduled before April 6th are cancelled or postponed.
  • Single team travel practices will be permitted, with the following limitations.
    • Players and Coaches only permitted on the fields.
    • Parents are strongly encouraged to drop the players off at practice and return to pick them up after completion.  Please walk them to the door to make sure that they get inside and meet them outside the door at the completion of practice.  If you must be in attendance during a practice, only one adult may be present.
  • Under no circumstance should anyone that has been feeling ill or has reason to believe that they may have been exposed be in attendance at any event.
Opening day for our spring season is scheduled for May 9th, seven weeks away.  There is no way that we can predict what the expert guidance will be at that time so, for now, we are not planning any changes for opening day or the remainder of the season.  This may change as new guidance is received.                 

Cheektowaga Youth Baseball will continue to monitor changes in the guidance of medical experts as well as the precautionary measures being implemented by the school districts, the towns, and Erie County.  We will modify the measures that we have implemented as new guidance becomes available. We have included an attachment that contains valuable information regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19).  We encourage you to take time to read through them.

Sincerely,
Cheektowaga Youth Baseball
