We are officially cancelling the March 30th meeting.
Once the Mounds View School District reconvenes I will set up a time in mid-April to pick up your rulebook, scorebooks, and softballs if you ordered them. After the designated date your supplies will be available at our offices in Medina.
Please continue registering your teams online and mail in your final payments. I will not cash any more checks until we have more information.
After March 30th I will start building team pages and work on schedules. Planning must start and continue in order for us to have a season. We are also working on contingency plans.
If your association decides against playing for the summer season we completely understand and are sympathetic to that situation. No one knows what the future holds so we will continue to plan and assess as we know more.
Ultimately the government is going to advise us as to what is going to happen with our season. When they do, we will update you.
Minnesota Softball's main priority is to ensure the safety of our athletes, coaches, umpires, and fans as we continue to monitor all relevant information on the COVID-19 virus.
We have received many phone calls and emails about what we are doing about COVID-19. Please do us a favor and spread the word with your coaches and parents. It’s nice that they want to reach out to us with their opinions but it’s also causing us a lot of undue pressure and redundancy of effort.
Our reality is many of our fields and facilities are controlled by cities and schools. Our first event is on May 2nd for tournaments and May 4th for league games. When they block the use of the facilities, that answers many questions for us and we will be able to make better more informed decisions. The good news is this is still forty (40) days away.
We have cancelled events before. The outrage from cancelling is immense. We will continue to monitor the situation and update you as needed. There will be some meetings that will get postponed. More information on that later.
Some of our partners in amateur sports here in the state have begun laying off people. It’s a sad reality of these times. We are hopeful we all can get through this and get kids back on the fields enjoying our great sport.
Thank you for your continued passion and patience. Updates will be posted as soon as we get them on the following online assets:
Please stay safe.
Dan, Brian, and Tom
