On May 7th PNHLL will send an email with new outlines for the PNH projected season amidst the COVID-19 crisis.
PNHLL Executive Board of Directors have worked closely with LL District 1, the City of Plymouth, and the City of New Hope to agree upon the terms of which we can return safely to play.
We are asking that all of our PNHLL members respect and abide by these recommendations in order to help keep our league operational during this time.
Please refer to our COVID-19 page to read in further detail.
Please send completed COVID-19 waivers to L.Breker@pnhll.org
Anyone who wishes to receive a refund at this time can receive a full refund minus a $10 processing fee. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Update-April 30, 2020
Little League International:
The Little League World Series and Regional tournaments leading up to it have been canceled for this 2020 season. However, Little League will continue to allow baseball at the local levels once the local governing authorities open up the parks and facilities.
PNHLL has been closely working with city officials as we await Gov Walz’s stay-at-home orders being lifted. With those orders now being extended to May 18th, PNHLL will continue to keep in close communication with the cities of Plymouth and New Hope, as well as the surrounding communities that participate in District 1 Little League Baseball. Once it becomes clear that we can resume our season we will update you.
Thank you for your patience, as things continue to change rapidly.
**full refunds will be honored minus a $10 processing fee - we respect those who may be experiencing difficult times, cannot accommodate new time lines, and/or do not feel safe resuming the 2020 season - please contact email@example.com**
During these challenging times, we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and want you to know that the safety and health of the PNHLL community is our number #1 priority.
Based on the Minnesota Stay at Home Order that was recently extended to May 4 and Little League International’s guidance, the current plan remains to begin baseball activities May 11. In recent years, we have had to cancel Opening Day due to the unpredictable Minnesota weather. Although this environment we are in is much more serious, we believe the delay will not have a great impact on the rest of the baseball season.
We will do everything to ensure our players are able to head to the fields to play baseball this summer. In the unfortunate event that we are not able to proceed with the season, PNHLL will refund the registration fees, less a $10 vendor processing fee. We also recognize that there are circumstances where you need to withdraw your child’s registration. If this is the case, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a refund. Note that registration will not reopen if you withdraw your child at this time.
With guidance from the CDC regarding group gatherings of more than 10 people, Little League International has recommended a suspension of all Little League activities until May 11. While this is certainly disappointing to our players, parents and coaches our #1 priority is to keep our communities safe and flatten the curve.
While we wish we could provide more clarity on what this upcoming season looks like, we are all aware that the situation with COVID-19 is extremely fluid and changes daily. We will continue to monitor the situation and communicate revised plans for the 2020 season based on guidelines from Little League International, health department experts and local authorities.
These are unprecedented times. As much as we love baseball, the health and well-being of our community comes first. This evening, Little LeagueInternational sent out an email advising all Little League Charters to suspend activities until April 6th, or further notice.
With that knowledge, we are taking the responsibility to do our part and follow their lead - we are cancelling all Evaluations and league events until April 6th. We will update you all if we hear anything further.
"As information continues to become available regarding the increasing spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), we wanted to provide you, our leagues and district administrators, with additional guidance on the implementation of the LittleLeague® program in your local communities.
Little League International operates more than 6,500 programs in more than 84 countries, and therefore, we recommend that our leagues exercise an abundance of caution and implement a temporary suspension of all leagueactivities until no earlier than April 6.
While each community is being affected differently by the coronavirus, the Little League International Board of Directors and staff feel that it is in the best interest of our volunteers and participant families to delay the implementation of the Little League season to begin no earlier April 6."
As always, we will continue to serve our youth sports community in the best way we know how. Please continue to educate yourselves on COVID-19 and try your best to stay informed and healthy.
We will update you all as soon as we have a revised plan-of-action for the impending season.
Dear parents of athletes,
Over the last few weeks, the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) has impacted many areas of the United States. PNH continues to closely monitor the situation and how it is impacting schools and institutions across the country. As you know, this situation is highly complex and changing at a rapid rate - this is new territory for all of us. We are keeping close watch on the local status of the virus.
We are aware large programs and facilities are postponing their programs. We support that decision as their arenas house a large amount of multi-state travelers and fans. However, at our smaller capacity and local engagement level, we do not feel it is necessary (at this time) to call off our current events taking place this weekend. Right now we are following the lead of District 281 schools, District 1 LittleLeague, and Little League International.
As a good practice, this time of year, even without the current COVID-19 situation, concerns for the spread of various forms of influenza, coughing, and other sicknesses are heightened.
We would like to remind our families of some effective ways to prevent the spread of germs, as recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):
Other General Precautions
Please do not attend Evals if your child has had a cough or fever in the last 72 hours. If any child is showing any signs of being ill, it is recommended to take his/her temperature and contact his/her doctor for professional guidance. In addition, we ask all families to be considerate of others and their own personal decisions at this time.
Know someone looking for summer employment? The City of New Hope is recruiting PT baseball umpires to support our league (evenings and weekends). Must be 16 to apply, salary $11-20 per hour.
