The NLGYSA Board has met and considered on-going options for the best format to allow our girls to have a safe and fun summer softball season. Thank you to all for completing the survey we've sent out. We have been given additional information from the City of New London which provides additional instruction on what will be allowed. As previously discussed, we will continue to hold a skills/fun night 'season' in July. We will be waiting for further direction from the City on what will exactly be allowed and not allowed. It is after much additional contemplation and discussion that we will not hold our July home tournament. We are still making plans for the possibility of our tournament teams competing in events in late July, August or September.
A focus of the Board is to try to maximize play of those who are comfortable playing in 2020 tournaments. We will reach out to all parents as we continue to plan for our teams. Some coaches may begin to schedule some practices.
Through trust, communication and mutual respect, we will create a working partnership with the New London area community to establish a charitable and educational youth softball program for young girls within the New London School District. This youth program is intended to provide opportunities and support the ongoing participations in the game of softball. We will establish an environment where learning the fundamentals of the game will be stressed at each level of the program. We will maintain a positive environment for every child involved, with the opportunity for competitive play..
