Announcement regarding 2020 Season

Hello South Jr Deb Family!
 
It is with great sadness we must advise that the board of directors have decided that we are canceling the 2020 softball season. With the current extension of the stay at home order and with the city's current status pending on use of public parks for recreational sports we are unable to make any version of a season at this time.
 
Registration Fee's:
With cancellation we have 3 options for all families on what will happen with any registration fee's paid. Please reach out to us to at southjrdeb@gmail.com to let us know how you would like to proceed no later then June 30th 2020. If you do not make contact then all players will default to the Option 1 listed below.
 
Option 1: Your registration fee can be rolled over to the 2021 season, meaning you child is already paid up to play next year. Benefit of option one is if there are any registration fee changes you will be locked in for the rate you already paid this year. At next years registration when you sign up you would just be picking up new calender's for the 2021 fundraising season. 
 
Option 2: Leaving the registration fee as a donation to the league. Even with the cancellation of the season there are expenses for insurances and start up costs the league must pay annually whether we play or not. Any donation would help us defray these costs but of course we understand this is not an option for everyone and are happy to work with families.
 
Option 3: We can refund your registration fee. Depending on how you paid it will either be refunded to the card you paid on or a mailed check to the address of your request. Please note if that you would like a refund we are asking these requests to be made to the southjrdeb@gmail.com no later then June 30th 2020. We need to insure that all refunds are handled within this fiscal period for accounting purposes.
 
Calendar fundraising:
Unfortunately there is no way for us to be able to manage the calendar fundraising this year. We apologize for any inconvenience as some families have already sold many calendars. We ask that you return any monies to the individuals you have sold to and destroy any existing calendars. Please be advised if any individual you have sold a calendar to comes to the league to inquire about the 2020 season fundraising we will direct them back to the family that sold them. Next year we will change the calendars in a way that will differentiate between the two seasons to not have any confusion.
 
Thank you all for your patience in us making this decision and again we are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause! We waited as long as we could to make this decision in the hopes to be able to have some sort of a season for our kids. But the safety of our families is our top priority and we will continue to push so we can have a good season next year.  

Respectfully,
Board of Directors

Season Changes due to COVID-19

Hello Parents!

Thank you all for signing up for our 2020 season! There have been some changes to the planned scheduled meetings due to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We are still planning on having a full fun season but any planned meeting in the next two weeks are being canceled as a precaution. This includes both team meetings and try-outs if your child is in the older divisions.

Team Meetings (ALL age groups)
 In the next coming weeks, the board will meet to reschedule a date for team meetings to be held down at South Jr Deb Field. We believe it will still important to have team meetings for parents and kids to meet their coach and team before practices start. At this meeting your coach will have all your information for game and practice schedules for the season. The board is waiting to reschedule this date until after two-week safety ban where we will base the decision on when the meeting will be depending how the current status of the outbreak.

Tryouts (Minor / Major Divisions)
Unfortunately, this meeting will not be able to be fully rescheduled. All kids will still be placed on a team we just will not be able to do a in person tryout at this time. Coaches will be meeting in the next few weeks to complete team selections and at that time a coach will call you to let you know what team your child is on and additional team information at that time.


At this time, we want to communicate with everyone that we are doing the two week ban as a safety precaution until we have a better understanding that the effects the virus has on our community. Your child’s health and safety are our top priority and all future decisions will be made with that in mind. We apologize for any confusion this has cause and if you have any questions or concern please do not hesitate to reach out. We can be reached online on our facebook page or directly  to the board of directors via email at SouthJrDeb@gmail.com.

Thank you everyone! We will be in contact soon!
