As you are all aware, we have been closely monitoring the current COVID Pandemic and its related impact on youth sports activities. We have seen both the American Legion and VFW levels cancel their seasons and we were then looking at potentially getting involved with MYAS in the older age group leagues they were talking about adding. MYAS just came out with an updated proposed schedule that does not have any games taking place until July 6th (if approved) and going into mid-August but with nothing permanent the CPBA board has made the decision to formally cancel the summer baseball season.
This was a decision that we do not take lightly as our focus is on providing baseball opportunities for the high school aged kids in our community but the constantly changing variables of this 2020 year have made that difficult.
We have found some options that may be available to kids yet this summer for those that are interested in finding an option to play baseball:
Coach Tohm is currently in discussions with the Athletic Director at the High School to put together some skills development for the players that are interested. Please keep on the alert for some communication from him related to that activity
15U-17U - 4 days a week(2 on field practices/scrimmages and then 2 days in the facility for Velo/Velohit/lift) plus 4-5 tournies (3 outstate and 1-2 local) June 8 - Aug 6 - cost is $2000 per player
Play in 2 tournaments under the Miller umbrella (June outstate and July Local) - $199 per player (Need a FULL TEAM ONLY with a dad coach)
You can register for the above 2 options by contracting this individual: firstname.lastname@example.org
We appreciate all of your patience as we have tried to wait this out and provide an opportunity for the players. We will now begin the effort of processing full refunds for all of the registrations. If you have any questions feel free to reach out to one of our board members, Mike Guckeen at email@example.com
