WELCOME TO THE HOME OF

PARKWAY LITTLE LEAGUE

 

Parkway Little League was founded in 1956 to give the children in South Sacramento an opportunity to participate in a wholesome, family oriented activity.  Since that time thousands of young boys and girls have benefited from the many men and women who have selflessly donated their time and skills to teach sportsmanship, teamwork, commitment and perseverance. Parkway Little League continues to serve the families in South Sacramento, Laguna, Elk Grove and surrounding areas.

~ A Message for the

 PARKWAY LITTLE LEAGUE  on the

2020 Season 

 

 

 

Dear families & friends of Parkway Little League ~

We hope this email finds you and your family well.  

After months of discussions and deliberations, plans and proposals, while concurrently keeping a close eye on the evolving situation in our community and lobbying for guidance from our public health officials, the Board of Parkway Little League has decided the following in regards to the 2020 Spring season:


1.  The Spring/Summer 2020 season for all lower divisions will be modified.  This includes TBall, baseball and Rookies softball divisions. The structure of what this will look like will be announced next week.


2.  Our upper division players in Majors and Minors baseball and Majors and Minors softball have the opportunity to participate in a shortened summer conditioning season in partnership with Tahoe Tallac and East Sac Little Leagues.  Team Managers will be in touch with their teams this week to gather commitments and interest in the summer conditioning season.  Please respond to your Manager as quickly as possible so we may reorient teams if needed - but no later than next Tuesday, July 7th.

Players and teams participating in the summer season will be required to follow specific Return to Play guidelines, and parents will be asked to sign a Return to Play waiver.  Those documents will be sent to interested families.

Players not interested in playing the summer season, may request to move their registration to the 2021 season, partial refund or a donation per the guidelines below.

3.  Our spring 2020 Volunteer Program is cancelled. If you wish to donate your $20. Volunteer Fee please let us know. We sincerely appreciate any time dedicated to our program through your volunteerism and look forward to working with our community again next season.

4.  The status of our annual Fall Ball program is undecided as of this time.  We hope to have information on the possibility of this program ready and communicated by late August. Please stay tuned.  

5.  We sincerely appreciate the commitment of our sponsors and in the weeks to come will feature each sponsor on our Facebook page until all sponsors have been promoted.  A complete list of sponsors is will be on our website on our Sponsor page.  We are grateful for our league sponsors and truly could not make the field improvements or league improvements we make each year without them.  Thank you 2020 PARKWAY LITTLE LEAGUE Sponsors!

 

 

Donation / Partial Refund/Move Registraion  of spring 2020 PARKWAY LITTLE LEAGUE Registration Fees:
As an all-volunteer non-profit organization, Parkway Little League operates each season solely on revenue generated through registration.  By before Opening Day, a large majority of investments in the season have already been made including items like, insurance, Little League chartering fees, player equipment, field maintenance and improvements, etc. 

Given the quarantine, PARKWAY LITTLE LEAGUE was not able to raise funds this season through league events, for example our annual Raffle Ticket Fundraiser,  Movie Night on the Field, Snack Bar, etc. and therefore will have very little capital for the ongoing improvements and new equipment we hoped to purchase and install prior to the 2021 season.  This crisis created a deep economic impact to our entire community, and Parkway Little League was not immune to that financial impact.


At this time, we ask each family with a registered player to either donate their Spring 2020 registration to PARKWAY LITTLE LEAGUE, or if you would prefer not to donate, request a partial refund.  We kindly request that you make your request as soon as possible, but no later than Friday, July 31st, 2020 via the hyperlinks provided below.  All requests will be confirmed by the league upon receipt via email.  We thank each family in advance for your consideration and understand that each of us has been impacted by this crisis.

Finally, we sincerely thank each family for your patience during this unchartered time in our history.  The Board of Parkway Little League has worked tirelessly over the past few months in the hopes of continuing the season safely for our players.  We are truly disappointed not to have the opportunity to offer our traditional baseball and softball season to our community, and feel the void of time away from the fields like we know many of you do also.  It has been hard, and while many feel baseball and softball are small things, we realize and acknowledge that enrichment activities like sports are extremely important to the mental and physical health of our children.  That's no small thing.

Know that we will keep working on developing our league behind the scenes, making plans, talking with our public officials, and partnering with our neighborhood leagues and administrators in the hopes of bringing a full, robust, safe return to baseball and softball, either this fall or early in 2021.
 
Spring 2021 marks the 65th Anniversary of Parkway Little League in our community.  We are hoping we can make plans for a BIG CELEBRATION next year, and hoping that all of you will be there safely to celebrate with us.

Thank you for your continued consideration and understanding.  We hope you have a safe, enjoyable summer and that we'll see you again soon.

Sincerely,
The Board of Directors of Parkway Little League

Hello Parkway families,

 

Hope you all are safe and healthy.

Well the good news is that there is great interest in playing baseball this year, even if the games start late and run a bit further into the summer than normal.

Given the data, we are currently looking to start the season on June 6 and complete the season by the first week of August. These dates are just the dates we are currently planning around, they are not set, and will be adjusted based on the guidelines set forth by the City and County of Sacramento. However, without setting some dates and having a plan, we would be caught flat-footed once we are given the green light to play ball, and we definitely will not let that happen.

When we are allowed to engage in games, they will be done under very strict adherence to the guidelines set forth by federal, state and local rules, as well as in conjunction with specific rules to ensure there is a focus on safety. As a league, we are in the process of contacting the Governor's office as well as the Sacramento County Department of Public Health, to let them know some of the measures we think will ensure player safety and ask for guidance on how current social distancing requirements may be modified when games are allowed to be played. By being proactive in our engagement with those who will set the guidelines, we hope to foster a unified vision of safety and fun.

Before games or practices are resumed, there will be an email containing the specific rules that must be followed for participating in and attending games. The rules will be clear and reinforced from the managers, to the team parents, to each one of you. Specifically, we do not know what the rule on the number of people allowed to gather will be, but whatever it is, it will be enforced. Will it mean that some of you do not get to see every game your child plays, perhaps.

Parkway is only so large, so even with the wearing of masks, what ever the guidance is on social distancing and crowd numbers, it will be followed so no one is put at an unnecessary risk for sickness.

Importantly, there are some families that will decide the schedules and rules are too much and decide not to play. The league understands that a whole range of issues plays into each family's decision to play this year. 

 

We will have a season this year!

 

Coaches please contact us with your plans if you are still on board with coaching this season. The commitment will be from June to August.

Lastly, we would like those who are undecided about participating in playing at Parkway Little League this year to make a firm yes or no decision by May 23.

District 7 is optimistic that we will play this season and may even have a small, district-only All-Star Tournament for the appropriate age group

As always, if you have questions or concerns, send them to Parkwaylittleleagued7@gmail.com

Stay safe,

 

Ty Madkins

Parkway Little League President
