2021 Letter to Families

February 1, 2021

Mile High Families,


We want to thank everyone for their support during the past year.  It has been difficult for our league in many ways, and although we wish we could have returned to the field sooner, we are pleased to announce we are now registering for 2021.  While we hope you will join us, we do want to be clear that this season will not look like past seasons.  We cannot promise that we will play games or scrimmages or provide all features of Little League that you may have enjoyed during previous years.  It is the intention of the board of directors to resume activities in accordance with the restrictions set out by State and local government orders.
 

The most comprehensive list of those restrictions is in a document called “All Together New Mexico”  (last updated Jan 18, 2021) The restrictions most relevant to our program start on Page 19 (link here):

Compliance with the current regulations means that players and volunteers should expect several changes from previous seasons.  Such changes include but are not limited to:
- Players and volunteers will be organized into pods of one (1) volunteer and a maximum of four (4) players;
- everyone will wear a mask during all activities; 
- everyone will maintain 6 feet of distance from other participants and volunteers;
- participants will have temperature checks prior to beginning activities; and likely many other obligations from volunteers. 
- Spectators will need to be separated from playing areas and from other spectators. 
This list is not intended to be all-inclusive of all possible restrictions. We are working on publishing our final plans and rules to our 2021 General Update page as soon as they are finalized and approved.  There are currently no exceptions for these requirements related to COVID-19 vaccination or recovery.
  

In terms of what the activities will look like:  We will have a maximum of two pods per field and have at least two practices per week, with staggered start and end times to minimize traffic at the park.  We are currently making arrangements to have necessary sanitizing products and thermometers available in order to comply with the requirements.

Please consider volunteering this year, even if you have never been a coach before.  We need volunteers who are committed to following all the requirements, so that we can provide an opportunity for our kids to get sunshine, exercise, and some baseball and softball skills practice.   We are working on a practice guide so that even novice volunteers can step-in and lead a pod with activities that are appropriate for small groups and are consistent with our public health orders. 
 

We ask for your patience and cooperation as we navigate these requirements.  One important change that we had to make is related to league finances.  Since we started practices before the 2020 season was halted by the public health orders, the league already paid for accident insurance for all players and volunteers, background checks, and utility bills, among other recurring expenses.  Due to these challenges and because we cannot control what outside factors may impact our program this year, no refunds will be issued of 2021 fees, for any reason.  We apologize for having to take this position for the preservation of our non-profit league, and we are so grateful for those who have continued to support our league during these difficult times.  Please know that the board is committed to navigating the regulations and providing the best possible experience for your kids.

Please feel free to reach out with your questions.  We want all families to feel comfortable that we will be providing a safe and fun experience, while staying in compliance with all applicable regulations.

We hope to see you soon.

2020-2021 Board of Directors
