Coronavirus Update

**Update April 10, 2020**
Fleet Park Little League will continue to follow the Governor’s Stay-At-Home directive, which is currently in place until June 10th. Therefore, all sporting activities in Virginia are currently postponed. We are working to provide contingency plans for our league in case this date changes, in either direction. The Fleet Park Little League Board will continue to monitor and follow the guidance of both Little League International and the State/Local Government to determine when our league is allowed to start.

To be clear - Fleet Park Little League will not begin practices or games until our State/Local Government has determined it is safe for both our kids and adults to resume baseball activities.

If our Spring Season is canceled, we will explore the potential for a Summer Season that could begin playing games by June 20th. This potential Summer Season would likely run from Saturday, June 20th – Saturday, August 22nd. This would allow for 10 weeks of play, minus 4th of July. (*Subject to change based on the CDC, Little League, Local Government restrictions).

In the meantime, please review the following refund options and submit your preference BEFORE MAY 18, 2020:

1. "Home Run" Option  - leave the registration fee in place with the option to:
  • play the 2020 Spring Season (if able); or
  • chose to play a potential 2020 Summer season (if 2020 Spring Season is cancelled); or
  • DONATE your registration to Fleet Park Little League.

If you choose to donate, FPLL will issue you a tax deductible receipt for your generosity as our program is only able to operate due to the extremely generous donations from our community.

2. "Rain Delay" Option - leave the registration fee in place with an option to:
  • play the 2020 Spring Season (if able); or
  • chose to play a potential 2020 Summer Season (if 2020 Spring Season is cancelled); or

*Credits become donations if not redeemed by the Spring 2021 season.
*League age 16 players will receive a refund if 2020 Spring and 2020 Summer seasons aren't offered.

3. "Strike Out" Option - Request a REFUND.
  • Refunds will be returned within 10 business days of request.  
  • Fleet Park is unable to refund any transaction fees charged by Sports Connect (previously Blue Sombrero).
*Selecting this option removes players from rosters.  If a 2020 Spring or 2020 Summer season occurs, re-entry IS NOT guaranteed.

**Update March 24, 2020**
I am sure everyone is aware of Governor Northam's recent decision (Executive Order Fifty Three) to close all public schools K-12 and below for the remainder of the school year to limit the spread of the COVID-19 Virus. Additionally he has announced a ban of all indoor and outdoor gatherings of greater than 10 people. This order goes into effect at 11:59 PM on 24 March 2020 and will remain in place until 11:59 PM 23 April 2020. Little League International has also recommended suspending all Little League Baseball and Softball activities until 11 May 2020.

There is still hope that we will be able to have a Spring Little League Season and it will all depend on the future decisions of Little League International and our State and Local Governments. I greatly appreciate your patience and understanding and we will do our very best to keep you updated as we learn more in the coming days and weeks.

The board members are working extremely hard to prepare for the different scenarios which may occur and we will provide further guidance when we find out how things will play out. Please don't hesitate to call or email me if you have any questions or concerns in this unprecedented time.

**Update March 16, 2020**
FPLL is following the lead of local school districts and government agencies concerning (if/when to) return to play.  Thank you for your patience as we continue to keep the safety of children, families and volunteers our top priority!
-FPLL Board of Directors


**Posted March 13, 2020**
Our number one priority is to ensure the safety of our children, families and volunteers that help make Fleet Park Little League such a success. I am sure everyone is well aware of the ongoing spread of the coronavirus.  Governor Ralph Northam declared a state of emergency for Virginia on 3/12/20 based on 17 confirmed or presumed cases of the coronavirus in the state.  Today, 3/13/20, Governor Northam ordered ALL K-12th grade schools in Virginia to close for a minimum of two weeks in response to the continued spread of COVID-19.

After careful consideration, we believe it's in the best interests of our Fleet Park Family to suspend all practices and games until further notice. Though our Spring season was scheduled to start on Saturday, March 21st, we will keep you posted as we learn new information. 

I highly encourage you to visit the CDC website to learn more about the coronavirus (COVID-19) and what steps you can take to reduce the chances of contracting and/or spreading the illness.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding.  Feel free to call or email me if you have any questions or concerns.
