HPLL 2020 Spring Season Cancelled



Please see below an update of our season from our Interim President:

The High Plains Little league board has voted to close the 2020 Spring Baseball and Softball Season.
 
Taking into account the following:
Fields:
- District 49 has not given the ok to open, yet
- El Paso County has opened with some safety precautions
    -No more then 25 people
    -Social distancing where possible 
    -Masks in dugouts
Competition: 
- Academy little league has closed its 2020 Season 
- Colorado Springs little league is opening for a shortened season in August
- Trilakes little league is opening in July
- Little league international has cancelled all tournaments 
We would have to move the season later into the summer, which leads to participation issues
Partcipation:
- Over 60 percent of the Hpll Survey response was to close the 2020 Spring Season
- Over 100 requests for a refund.
 
Taking in to account those factors and the safety of our players/parents/volunteers, the HPLL board voted to close the 2020 spring baseball and softball.
 
In the coming months, the board will be looking at the feasibility of a fall camp and Challenger League.
