Dear NLL Families;
The Nipomo Little League Board of Directors recently met to discuss the 2020 baseball season and how we should proceed as a league. A few weeks ago we had the team managers reach out to their players to identify the interest from our community to resume the season. The response was overwhelmingly positive that the majority of our players wished to resume the season as quickly as possible. This response from the community directed our discussion on different options and how we will proceed.
Little League International has given permission for leagues to continue their seasons under the guidelines of their state and local public health. San Luis Obispo County is no longer under its own stay at home order but they are being held to the directives from the State. The State of California has released several youth activities, ranging from non-essential health care to summer camps, but still explicitly states that sports activities such as baseball are currently not allowed. We have been in constant communication with the San Luis Obispo County Administrative Officer and Director of Public Health, both who are big supporters of little league, and they continue to advocate to the state for the release of youth activities.
The current restrictions placed on youth sports do not give us the ability to resume at this time but the Board feels that we may be nearing approval at the state level when considering the other youth activities that have already been released. For this reason as well as the response from the community we have decided to remain on hold and not cancel the season. As a league we will remain optimistic and will reevaluate at our next board meeting the first week of July. Until this time we will continue to monitor daily and continue our collaboration with our County Administrative Officer and Director of Public Health.
This situation still leaves many questions that unfortunately cannot be answered at this time. We are continually researching all avenues, trying to find any loophole possible that would allow us to resume at some capacity. Our best case scenario would be to pick up as we left off with minor restrictions however we are prepared to implement any measure necessary to comply with state and local guidelines. Any modifications to our season will require support from our community. As soon as we are given the green light to proceed we will work quickly to implement a plan of action that incorporates any restrictions and/or limitations that may be imposed and compose a new schedule to distribute to the league so our families can plan accordingly.
We hope you all are doing well and look forward to seeing everyone back on the fields. We will send an update when any new information is available.
