Longview Youth Baseball 2021 Info
2021 Season Dates Are Set!UpdatedFriday March 19, 2021 byLYB Webmaster.
Longview youth baseball community,
We are glad to announce that the board has decided we are going to try and move forward with the 2021 baseball season. As you all know, we still have some challenges that we need to overcome before we can play games. As of right now, we can start practicing (and let’s be honest, we could use some after being cooped up and sitting around for a while). Our goal as a board is to be as transparent as possible and let you know what our plans are going forward. We know that it has been a rough time for everyone. We are opening up registration and the athlete will be put on a waitlist. What this means, is that you do not have to pay at this point to be on the waitlist. We are optimistic that we should be in Phase 2 of the Governor’s plan and able to play games after spring break. Your payment will not be due until we start practicing. Based on our timelines as to when practice starts and when games will be played, we will have to order uniforms on March 8th. This is when payments will be due.
In the event that we are unable to play games starting after spring break, the season will be pushed back in two-week increments until we can play games. While we remain in Phase 1, we will be able to practice until games start. If we do not make it into Phase 2 and are unable to start our season before May 10, 2021, our season will be canceled and everyone will be given a refund minus the cost of the uniforms. We are trying to hold off as long as possible for ordering uniforms so that we can refund as much as we can if canceled. If forced to cancel, we intend on trying to run a season in the fall.
We realize we threw a lot of information at you, so below are the dates. We also realize that there are still going to be a lot of questions. So, stay tuned as we are going to do a Live Facebook post in the upcoming days.
