COVID-19 Update

May 27, 2020

All

I have made decisions to restart USA Girls Junior Olympic Softball in the State of Maine with certain guidelines to be followed.

Effective June 1st 2020  and for the month of June 2020 teams will be allowed to practice or scrimmage.

No tournament games for the month of June.

The Maine State USA State Championships have been moved to July 30,31 and August 1st 2020, this means the 2020 Olympic Dream Event has been canceled. If you have registered for this event a FULL refund or admission to another event will be arranged.

The MAYSA Triple Play event has been either postponed or canceled.(I will update everyone soon with a decision on this event).

All Maine teams will not be allowed travel outside of Maine for months of June and July 2020. I will make a decision on what happens with events in August at a later date.

All events held during the month of July 2020 will be for Maine USA registered teams only. No teams from other states or other countries allowed.

I have attached the Maine version of back to the ballpark requirements which will be posted on the website. These need to be followed and used for practices and scrimmage games.

Maine USA Softball will hold 4 dates in June (6,7 13,14)  which will have day long events for teams to play 2 games and we will use these dates to seek changes, make adjustments to any of the required items that I have requested in the back to the ballpark recommendations. I will publish something soon when I get my team of Commissioner/UIC’s together.

I know some of you have been approached for league play and I am requesting that the leagues use the Maine back to the ballpark recommendations that I have set forth. I will be conversing with all regaurding this compliance.

I want to THANK all of you for your patience and understanding going through this rough time.(COVID-19). During many of my phone exchanges with area commissioners the easiest thing to do would have been to cancel the 2020 season like some others have done. I for one could not let that happen and I have tried to provide a safe and workable guide to get the girls returning to one of the greatest sports of all time. (USA SOFTBALL).

I will be looking for assistance from all of you to make this happen, my feeling is that if we work together

for what is best for the players, coaches, parents and fans we can get through this.

Saying this I have found that there are no Social Distancing Police, Face Mask Police, Hand Sanitizing Police or anybody that will provide direct assistance to questions that may come up so I will do the best I can to protect everyone involved with events in the State Of Maine….
