Latest GLL News Regarding Covid-19 Virus

Updated:  3/23/2020 - 8:50pm CDT.

To our GLL Families:

During this time of uncertainty for all of us regarding our jobs, families, school, etc., we realize that what is happening with the Grafton Little League season is not high on the list of your concerns but we did want to pass along some updates.

As mentioned in an earlier posting, Little League International initially advised all their affiliated leagues to postpone league activities until April 6; they later revised that date to be May 11.  With the May 11 date in mind, the Grafton Little League Board met on 3/22/2020 to review and revise our plans for the season.  Highlights include:

  • At this time, we are not looking to cancel our season.  In fact, we are working diligently on just the opposite.  
  • We will comply with all state, local, school district, and Little League International guidance related to COVID-19.  
  • As such, we will not hold any events (practices/games, meetings, clinics, etc.) prior to 5/11 – unless they can be completed virtually.
  • Our goal is to continue season preparations so that Grafton Little League can be one of the first “back to normal” events that our local families can enjoy!

 

GLL will do everything we can within reason to try and provide a full season of games; practices for the older leagues likely will be reduced and game schedules may need to be compacted.  Because the younger leagues start later, there may be no impact to them.  All of this is subject to change though if Little League International again extends the date we can start.

We are not ready to publish exact dates for anything yet because everything is still very fluid.  Please check back at this web location for updates, all new news regarding our season dates will be published here.

Sincerely,

Greg Schaefer
Grafton Little League President


Little League International has recommend that their affiliated Little Leagues exercise an abundance of caution and implement a temporary suspension of all league activities until no earlier than May 11.  Here is a LINK to their site with more information.

The schedule for all GLL events is either modified, delayed or canceled until this entire situation plays itself out.  Do not hesitate to reach out to your team manager or any of the GLL Board Members if you have questions.
