2020 Season Update 5/7/2020

Dear Greene County Youth Center Players & Families,

 

We hope you all are doing well and staying safe!  I would like to thank you all for your continued patience and support as our season is still on hold.  We miss the players, coaches, fans, the practices, games, and the smell of the concession stand!  We miss baseball and softball as much as you do!  We are hopeful to get back on the field as soon as the state regulations allow.  I have attached a statement below from the Babe Ruth League.

 

Thank you!

Greene County Youth Center Board

 

Babe Ruth League, Inc has always been deeply committed to providing all of our participants with the very best educational sports experience possible in a safe and enjoyable environment.  We thank you for your patience, understanding, and support as we navigate through these unparalleled times. 
 
It is the goal of Babe Ruth League, Inc. to achieve a complete 2020 local league season so everyone can participate in the game they love. It remains our hope that once permission is granted by state and local health officials, we’ll return to our community fields and play as much baseball and softball as we can for the remainder of the 2020 year. We’ll be encouraging our commissioners to extend local league play into the summer and fall months in order to permit a full season for everyone.
 
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, timelines are now flexible. Commissioners in your state will work with league presidents to discuss if and when district and state tournaments can take place.
Information regarding Regional Tournaments and World Series dates and locations will  be forthcoming as we explore other opportunities and formats in the next several weeks once our leagues get back up and running.
 
Until we meet again on the diamond, we ask you to focus on the guidelines set by local, state and federal governments to make sure we all do our part to ensure the health, well-being and safety of our players, families, volunteers and fans.  
 
Be sure to stay connected with Babe Ruth League through our email, social media and websites for the most up to date information.
 
 
Sincerely,

Steven Tellefsen

2020 Season Delay

GCYC families,

Out of an abundance of caution, we are going to delay our season due to the outbreak of the Corona Virus (Covid-19).  Our priority is the health and wellbeing of our community and families. The gate will be closed and locked during this time. Please refrain from being at the facility. We are hopeful that we will be able to resume practices the week of April 5th and potentially have opening day April 18th. These dates are extremely fluid as we follow the guidelines from local officials. In the meantime as suggested by many venues, we are going to close the Youth Center to all activities as gathering greater than 100 people is not advised. 

Please visit vdh.virginia.gov/epidemiology/epidemiology-fact-sheets/coronaviruses/ to learn more about this pandemic and what you can do to help. If you have any questions or concerns about the Youth Center, please contact Kevin Norris at 434.987.0240 or by emailing  wkevinn5600@gmail.com 

Thank you for understanding,

Greene County Youth Center Board of Directors
