RHAM Youth Baseball Summer Season

Great news! I am very excited to announce that Hebron and Marlborough Parks and Rec departments have approved our RHAM Youth Baseball safety measures and we are cleared to start our summer season!

 

Our reopening plan and timeline:

 

·         You are receiving this email based on your interest in your child playing a RHAM Youth Baseball this summer. So we have an accurate count of players for each league, please email me at  and Ryan Price by this Sunday (6/21) if you would like to withdraw your child from participating in the summer season and receive a refund for the league fees this season.

·       Once we have our final counts for each league, we will set the teams and coaches. Next week you will hear from your coach regarding the first practice week of 6/27.

·         Practices will begin on 6/27. For our older leagues, games will start the week of 7/6, with at least one game and practice per week through the week of August 10th with our season will conclude by Sunday, August 15th.

·       The summer season will be relaxed. It is all about providing a safe and fun experience for all. We understand families might have vacation plans and we will work around those commitments. We ask that you just inform your child’s coach.

·       The summer season for the 70ft and 60ft leagues with the following scheduling guidelines, a practice and game dung the week and a game on most likely early Saturday mornings. We want to ensure that we have players practice and play during the early morning and in the evenings when the weather is cooler. We will also need some parent volunteers as times to monitor players.

·       The Rookie league scheduling guidelines will include a practice during the week and a game on most likely early Saturday mornings. We want to ensure that we have players practice and play during the early morning and in the evenings when the weather is cooler. We will also need some parent volunteers as times to monitor players and assist with coaching to ensure the best experiences for the kids.

·       The Tee Ball league will participate starting with a structured one-hour practices during the week to ensure that we have our youngest players practice and play during the early in the evenings when the weather is cooler. With the intention to play some games on Fridays later in the season. This will also ensure to keep them engaged and provide safe. We will also need some parent volunteers as times to monitor players and assist with coaching to ensure the best experiences for the kids.

 

To ensure safety of our players, coaches and families, our games and practices will look a little different this season. For example:

·     Dugouts will be closed and bleachers have been removed from our fields. During games, players will be spaced more than 6ft apart along the first and third baselines. Parents will be asked to safely social distance behind the outfield fence.

·         Sharing of baseball equipment between players will not be allowed. However, the league will be able to provide sanitized bats, helmets or catcher's gear to use for games or practices for any child that needs it.  Please communicate those needs to your coach so we can ensure we have enough to provide.

·         No out of town games will be played. All games will be RHAM vs RHAM.

·         Players and coaches will NOT be required to wear masks while on the field during the game or practices, as long as they maintain social distancing.

 The full list of guidelines that have been approved by the two towns can be found on the RYB website www.rhamyouthbaseball.com We will also keep registration open for new players until Monday, June 29th.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

 

Looking forward to getting started on a fun and safe baseball season!

 

 Play Ball!
