Coronavirus Update from Greenwood Abbeville Little League



Parents:

The board met this morning to discuss how we are going to move forward because of Little League International’s strong recommendation to temporarily suspend all league activities until April 6th, 2020.

The board has decided that when we are able to resume activities on April 6th, please plan on your child’s team playing games and/or practicing during that week. We understand that is not the normal schedule for Greenwood Abbeville Little League, but it is necessary to ensure that we get an entire season completed based on the time we have available. Please realize that we have not developed a complete schedule yet and will not release a complete schedule until we are sure that we are going to resume Little League activities at that time. 

Please mark your calendars for Saturday April 18th, as this is our new Opening Day. We will play actual games on this day instead of the skills competition we had originally planned. We will also have our silent auction this day as well. As the day gets closer, we will release the schedule of events.

In addition, your coaches understand that they are not allowed to have any Little League team activities during this time as well. We encourage you to continue to practice with your child during this time so that when the league resumes, they are prepared to play baseball.

We thank you for your patience and cooperation as we all make adaptations to the “norm” of the Little League season due to COVID-19.  Please realize that Little League International made this decision and that we are going to follow their recommendations as an official member of Little League. The board will continue to monitor the situation and adjust as needed based on Little League International’s recommendations and state and local government.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  You can also refer to the “Coronavirus FAQ” document that is located at the link below.
