Dear Redmond West Little League Families,
The past two months have certainly changed almost every aspect of our lives and interrupted our daily routines and activities. For most of us, this has meant staying home so that we can stay healthy. And for those in our community who are essential to all of us staying healthy - our healthcare workers, grocery store employees, and public servants - I want to say thank you for all that you have done for us.
We have begun to see plans to open back up certain activities around our state so it's now an appropriate time to turn our attention to the players and members of Redmond West Little League. This email reflects recent decisions from Little League International, the City of Redmond Parks Department and the volunteers of the Redmond West Little League Board of Directors.
First, due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Little League International has decided to cancel its World Series and Region Tournaments for the first time in its 75-year history. You can see the complete message from CEO Stephen Keener here. Mr. Keener's message leaves the decision for local League play and post-season play to the local districts and leagues, in accordance with state and local officials' guidance.
Second, our Board of Directors will adhere to guidance from state and local officials before resuming our season. We've learned from Redmond City Parks department that our home field, Hartman Park, is expected to remain closed through June 20. What this means for RWLL players and members is that the earliest we could resume practices is June 21. Other nearby Leagues, who play at different parks, may have different dates by which they can resume practice. We should expect uneven start dates across District 9 and surrounding areas based on field availability and local guidelines.
Third, our Board of Directors agreed that if we can play softball and baseball this summer, we will do so. This may result in changes to teams, and the practice/game formats. We're speaking with other leagues and District 9 to draft a proposed season. Many of us would be content to start play on July 1 under the summer sun. You will be receiving an email next week asking you to respond back to us whether your son or daughter is available and willing to play during our developing summer season. This will help us to plan for team formations and reserve fields.
However, we know some of you may not want to play over the summer, or cannot do so. You and your player will be missed, and we hope you'll return in Spring 2021. We hope you'd consider applying your player registration fee as a donation to the League. If that's not your choice, we are setting up a process for partial refunds. As a non-profit organization, Redmond West Little League needs to cover its operational costs. We did have operational costs for the 2020 season, such as field rentals, jerseys and hats, background checks, marketing, room rentals, and more. On a per-player basis, we'll withhold 10% to 15% of your registration fee. Please check this website starting on May 8 for more details.
In conclusion, we hope that you and your families are safe and healthy. Thank you for contributing to the Redmond community by participating in Little League softball and baseball. We hope to see you at the ballpark sometime this year.
Will Simmonds, President, RWLL
