Covid-19 Safety Protocols

                                                                                                                          

FCLL Covid Safety Protocols

At any time during the season if you, your player or anyone in your household is diagnosed with Covid-19 we ask that you let us know as soon as possible so we can communicate this to the other teams in your division and officials from your recent games. If you have inter-leagued with a visiting team, we are required to communicate with that league.

Please know that we are doing everything we can to bridge the gap between safety and getting to play baseball. As you have seen on TV, major league teams are all following the basic protocols. We want your player, your families and our league to be safe throughout the fall season.

In the event that a team has a member that has been diagnosed with Covid-19, the League will request that team to quarantine for 14 days before resuming its game schedule. Any missed games will be rescheduled as the calendar allows.

a.       While in the dugout players over the age of 10 are required to wear a face mask

c.       Players should supply their own beverage and should not share

An additional safety protocol that might be enforced by your coach would be monitoring the player’s temperature when they arrive at the fields. While we as a league are not mandating this, we are supporting the efforts of the coaches to keep everyone safe.

It is the hope of Fossil Creek Little League and its Board that by putting these safety protocols in place it shows that we care about the safety of all of our FCLL family.

Covid-19 Liability Waiver

Due to the active Covid-19 pandemic FCLL has added Covid-19 liability waiver that must be accepted at the time of registration. While FCLL will do everything we can to provide a safe environment for our players, coaches, volunteers and visitors we cannot guarantee everyone safety from this virus.
