Team Captains & Players,
We hope you are well and managing to stay fit during this challenging times. Just wanted to give you an update with respect to summer league.
As you’re probably aware, NY State is implementing a phased re-opening which started on May 15 as cases of the coronavirus COVID-19 is on the decline. We hope this downward trajectory will continue for the state as a whole and for the Southern Tier region in particular. The key point we want to communicate is that sports leagues fall under “Recreation” and is therefore in Phase 4 of the NY Forward plan. We’ve been in contact with park officials (City & State) who in turn have been in regular consultation with the TCHD. From all indications, Phase 4 of NY Forward plan is not expected to be initiated until July at the earliest for the Southern Tier region.
Be that as it may, please be informed we are making arrangements to have a summer league and we’ve already submitted a plan to the City & NYS Park officials. We’ll share this plan with everyone in due course. Just know that the health and safety of every player remains uppermost in our priority and we can have a summer league in a responsible manner that is both safe & fun.
We miss you all and look forward to seeing you soon.
