Covid-19 Procedures

  Covid-19 Procedures

All league participants will be required to sign a waiver to participate in the league for the 2021 season. Additional seating and fencing has been added to the dugouts to allow more room for social distancing. All players must have their own equipment including helmets, bats and gloves and should not share with other youth. At the end of each game, youth will line up along the corresponding baseline to their dugout and a tip of the cap will be utilized vs the traditional lineup and handshake after the game. All regularly touched surfaces will be disinfected regularly.

Sufficient time between practices and games to facilitate the complete evacuation of individuals from a previous practice or game from the premises before the next group enters. Players/families/spectators will be instructed not to show up to fields earlier than scheduled times. Arrivals to the complex can be scheduled to help ensure a large number of individuals are not arriving at the same time.

If there is a game or practice prior to your event, families and spectators are encouraged to stay in their vehicles or at recommended social distances until the start of their game play to prevent overcrowding of spectator spaces and walkways.

On-field warm-up should be limited as much as is reasonably possible and no more than 30 minutes.

Practices and games will follow all local and state directives regarding the number of people allowed to gather in one place.

Limiting Spectator Attendance: All spectators should follow best social distancing practices — stay six feet away from individuals outside their household; wear a cloth face covering at all times; avoid direct hand or other contact with players/managers/coaches during play.

Spectators should bring their own seating or portable chairs when possible.


A spectator with any of the following conditions should not attend a practice or game until evaluated by a medical provider and given clearance to do so:

●         Active COVID-19 infection

●         Known direct contact with an individual testing positive for COVID-19

●         Fever

●         Cough

Those at higher risk for severe disease should consider consultation with their medical provider before attending a game and should ensure the strictest adherence to guidelines regarding face coverings, distancing, and handwashing.

Such groups include:

●         Those with a serious underlying medical condition, including heart disease, morbid obesity, diabetes, lung disease, immunocompromised, chronic kidney disease, and chronic lung disease.

●         Those currently residing in a nursing home or long-term care facility

●         Those age 65 and over

Public Restrooms:

●         Access to public restrooms will be limited if possible.

●         A “one-in-one-out” policy, where only one individual is permitted within the restroom at one time, should be implemented to ensure adequate distancing in the confined restroom space.

●         Prior to and after any league activity, restrooms should be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. Restrooms should be disinfected on a regular basis.

●         Public water fountains or refillable water stations should not be used, and should be turned off to discourage use, if possible.

Concession Stands:

●         Leagues should follow local and/or state guidance when considering operating food or concession sales.

●         Leagues opting to operate food and/or concession sales should also review and understand the CDC’s guidelines.

Post Information to Promote

Everyday Preventive Actions:

Posters and signs will be displayed throughout the park to frequently remind

visitors to take steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19. These messages may include information about:

●         Staying home if you are sick or do not feel well, and what to do if you’re sick or feel ill.

●         Using social distancing and maintaining at least six feet between individuals in all areas of the park.    

Little league Insurance- What Parent's Should Know

WARNING: Protective equipment cannot prevent all injuries a player might receive while participating in Baseball / Softball.


The Little League Insurance Program is designed to afford protection to all participants at the most economical cost to the local league. The Little League Player Accident Policy is an excess coverage, accident only plan, to be used as a supplement to other insurance carried under a family policy or insurance provided by an employer. If there is no primary coverage, Little League insurance will provide benefits for eligible charges, up to Usual and Customary allowances for your area. A $50 deductible applies for all claims, up to the maximum stated benefits. This plan makes it possible to offer exceptional, affordable protection with assurance to parents that adequate coverage is in force for all chartered and insured Little League approved programs and events. If your child sustains a covered injury while taking part in a scheduled Little League Baseball or Softball game or practice, here is how the insurance works: 1. The Little League Baseball and Softball accident notification form must be completed by parents (if the claimant is under 19 years of age) and a league official and forwarded directly to Little League Headquarters within 20 days after the accident. A photocopy of the form should be made and kept by the parent/claimant. Initial medical/dental treatment must be rendered within 30 days of the Little League accident. 2. Itemized bills, including description of service, date of service, procedure and diagnosis codes for medical services/ supplies and/or other documentation related to a claim for benefits are to be provided within 90 days after the accident. In no event shall such proof be furnished later than 12 months from the date the initial medical expense was incurred. 3. When other insurance is present, parents or claimant must forward copies of the Explanation of Benefits or Notice/ Letter of Denial for each charge directly to Little League International, even if the charges do not exceed the deductible of the primary insurance program. 4. Policy provides benefits for eligible medical expenses incurred within 52 weeks of the accident, subject to Excess Coverage and Exclusion provisions of the plan. 5. Limited deferred medical/dental benefits may be available for necessary treatment after the 52-week time limit when: (a) Deferred medical benefits apply when necessary treatment requiring the removal of a pin /plate, applied to transfix a bone in the year of injury, or scar tissue removal, after the 52-week time limit is required. The Company will pay the Reasonable Expense incurred, subject to the Policy’s maximum limit of $100,000 for any one injury to any one Insured. However, in no event will any benefit be paid under this provision for any expenses incurred more than 24 months from the date the injury was sustained. (b) If the Insured incurs Injury, to sound, natural teeth and Necessary Treatment requires treatment for that Injury be postponed to a date more than 52 weeks after the injury due to, but not limited to, the physiological changes of a growing child, the Company will pay the lesser of: 1. A maximum of $1,500 or 2. Reasonable Expenses incurred for the deferred dental treatment. Reasonable Expenses incurred for deferred dental treatment are only covered if they are incurred on or before the Insured’s 23rd birthday. Reasonable Expenses incurred for deferred root canal therapy are only covered if they are incurred within 104 weeks after the date the Injury occurs. No payment will be made for deferred treatment unless the Physician submits written certification, within 52 weeks after the accident, that the treatment must be postponed for the above stated reasons. Benefits are payable subject to the Excess Coverage and the Exclusions provisions of the Policy. We hope this brief summary has been helpful in providing a better understanding of the operation of the Little League Insurance program.
