EFFECTIVE MARCH 13, 2020 at 5:00pm. Update 5/2/2020. NEW UPDATE 5/25/20.
On May 22nd State officials allowed youth leagues to resume operations. As a result, both City and WSBR have agreed to restart practices based upon originally scheduled day and time period. Word is being sent to all team Managers for them to contact their Sp2020 families for availability and input.
There may be instances where the Manager does not yet feel comfortable in holding practices so next responsible team Coach will be offered team manager role. We also recognize some families will not want to continue for personal reasons or continued concern about the virus, so if that is your decision please contact your Division VP and Treasurer for possible reparation.
Additionally, our first annual Fundraising Gala is rescheduled to Saturday, June 6th at Tuskawilla Country Club. We will keep everyone updated if anything changes.
The Board of Directors and City of Winter Springs Parks Dept. will make every effort to restart the season while keeping in mind the safety of our families. We will adhere to all State CDC guidelines and expect all families to abide by the requests/directives issued.
Important safeguards as we begin:
If you are feeling sick, please stay home and advise coach;
No more than 9:1 player/coach ratio on field;
Parents/siblings to remain in cars/parking lot;
Use hand sanitizer before and after practice;
Keep a 6' distance as much as possible;
Do not share water bottles, face masks or batting helmets;
Properly sanitize all shared equipment before and after each practice.

Keep in mind schedule modifications are likely if local leagues do not all commence at same time and league play may extend into late summer. No significant information has yet been passed down by National Babe Ruth concerning summer tournament competition; however, they remain flexible as staff will explore opportunities and formats once local leagues resume play.
Majority of our leaders’ decisions are being driven by the "curve" you all have seen in the news. The infection, confirmed cases and fatality rates are controlled by each of you so please follow recommended Health Department social distancing and self-isolation guidance when ill. It must also be understood that the Park oversees our League activities so continue best hygiene and social distancing practices while on property so we do not lose this summer's sport season.
In the meantime, please don't forget the amazing local restaurants who have supported our league this year.
