Play Ball! Softball, That Is!by Kristi Potts on 06/05/20
The YMCA is offering softball for girls in grades 1st - 7th. The season will run from approximately mid–June through end of July. Practices will be held at least once a week (usually in late afternoon hours) and on weekends. There will be no out of town games or games against other out of town teams. Players would need to have their own glove, cleats, hats, and other related equipment. There will be no sharing of equipment.
If your child was previously signed up prior to suspension in mid-March, there is no need to sign up again. If you signed up previously, but now do not want your child to participate you can call the YMCA and ask for a refund of your fee.
Parents will need to sign a specific COVID-19 consent and waiver of liability form for their child's participation. A required parents meeting (via Zoom) will be held prior to the start of the season.
At this time volunteer coaches are still needed for some grade levels. Volunteers must pass a background check and a Child Abuse Prevention course as well as sign a COVID-19 liability waiver. If you are interested in coaching please contact the YMCA.
