Hello NLL Families,
Per our last update the NLL Board of Directors met for the July Board meeting to discuss our current position regarding the 2020 baseball season. The current directives issued by the State of California do not allow organized youth sports at this time and it does not appear that this will be changing at any time in the near future. For this reason we have decided that it is now time to cancel the remainder of the 2020 season.
The decision to cancel was not taken lightly as we understand the significance of our Little League organization within the community. The cancelling of our season has posed a significant financial loss to our league. Most of the cost involved with a baseball season are up front prior to any games being played. The costs include equipment, insurance, league fees, leases on the field, website and registration fees, team uniforms, team picture, etc. We have been successful in previous years with the ability to close the season at a breakeven point through the proceeds from our concessions. Given that we have encumbered all of the upfront costs and have not been able to recoup through our concessions, cancelling the season has placed the league in a position that will limit how we are able to proceed into next year’s season.
Despite our current financial situation we will offer a $35 refund by request to all registered players. Refunds will be by request only and must be requested prior to August 31, 2020. For those requesting a refund, please email us with your Player’s name as well as whom you would like a check made out to and your current mailing address to NipomoLittleLeague@gmail.com. Requests will be processed and checks will be mailed out. For those who forgo the refund and donate it back to the league we sincerely appreciate it as it will better assist us in resuming next year. We love our league and our community and look forward to baseball in the future.
Ben Ferrari – President Nipomo Little League
Nipomo Little League is very grateful for the generous support for the 2020 season from the following sponsors:
Nipomo Little League is a community volunteer-based organization and has plenty of opportunities to volunteer. Volunteering includes coaching, assisting, snack bar, field prep, and more!
All volunteers must be cleared by the Nipomo Little League's clearance service to ensure the safety of our players. The clearance must be completed each season, and before you are permitted to participate as a volunteer.
The volunteer application process is now completely online. Please click on the link below to complete the volunteer background check.
If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Update: No games or practices until further notice. The league will give everyone an update when we have more information.
