USA Softball of RI strongly suggests that all leagues and travel organizations adhere to what the US Government, and State and local governments are telling everyone to do in order to combat the spread of the virus.
USA Softball of RI will not be assigning umpires to leagues, tournaments, or scrimmages, UNTIL the "all clear" signal is sent out by the authorities. I hope that everyone is adhering to the suggested ban on assemblies of 10 people or less, and are keeping your players and their families safe.
NOTE: Upcoming tournaments in early May are in jeopardy of being cancelled due to these restrictions, it is advised that tournament directors notify the teams entered in their tournaments that this IS a possibility, it is especially important that out of state teams that have hotel reservations be notified at least one week prior in order that they can cancel reservations
We are in uncharted waters this year with the delay in the start of recreational league play, I hope that I am wrong, but I envision that league play will not be starting anytime soon, my best guess is maybe June, but again not until you are given the "all clear" directive by the authorities. Start thinking about running your league in the summer during week nights instead of cancelling it altogether. I am sure that all of you have received payments from parents, ordered uniforms, etc. It would be wise to offer a later start rather than to cancel. That is of course if the restrictions have been lifted in time to do so.
I will continue to periodically keep everyone informed with announcements as they become necessary.
Be safe and follow what government and health leaders are telling everyone to do.
The USA Softball Rhode Island Junior Olympic Program with help from the Rhode Island Blue Star Moms made and delivered handmade cards to US soldiers deployed protecting our freedom with the hopes of lifting their spirits. Over 500 cards were made and sent to the soldiers deployed!!! Happy Holidays and thank you to all the soldiers deployed for all that you do for all of US! Special thanks to Rhode Island Blue Star Moms for getting the cards delivered. In addition we would also like to thank Coventry Girls Softball League, NE Impact, Smithfield Storm and East Bay Fast Pitch for organizing "Card Days" for our JO Athletes to make the cards!
