I hope this message finds you well and you are doing all you can to help the community in order to stop this virus. We had our monthly board meeting last month, and we'd like to communicate to you the following;
1. CGAA is following the District, MN Dept of Health, CDC and other government agencies for protocols and general guidance on social distancing. We are following this daily to assure we are doing our part. As you all know, the west rink is closed indefinitely. As far as practice goes, coaches are not allowed to organize a group practice with their teams until further notice. This recommendation follows state and federal protocols set around social distancing.
2. For the travel baseball players, the registration deadline is March 31st. We are keeping that deadline in hopes that we will still be having a season. Currently, MBL will be postponing the start of the MBL season, the new proposed start date will be May 18th. MBL is currently asking for associations to give their input on how the season should play out so we should know more soon. As of right now, the MBL league scheduling meetings will still be held on April 4th and coaches meetings on April 14-16th.
3. In-House registration has been pushed back to April 17th as a deadline. If you have not registered yet and would like to hold off that would be okay. We will be scrambling to make teams and get a schedule put together so please bear with us. The plan for right now is to
push back the start of the in-house season to aligh with the proposed MBL travel season, or May 18th.
4. We are encouraging the baseball community to continue to think about baseball. A great activity for kids stuck at home is to play catch for 20 minutes. We are going to be working on a throwing program, some simple strength and conditioning training and fundamental skills videos/challenges.
Please make sure that you are doing your part and stay safe.
