Spring Season - COVID-19 Update

The Covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic is rapidly changing and impacting communities all across the country and globe. The health and safety of our players, coaches, volunteers, families, and fans is Oconee County Little League’s top priority. By now, I'm sure you've all heard that Governor Kemp has closed all public schools in the state of Georgia through Friday, April 24, 2020.  It's been the position of OCLL that we will follow the lead of our local authorities and the school system in particular. That means that OCLL activities will not resume until at least April 25, 2020.  That said, our Board Members are continuing to plan for the 2020 season with the hopes that we still get to play ball. We understand it may be optimistic, but as of today we’re crossing our fingers and hoping to get back on the fields as soon as it is safe to do so.  The OCLL Board is in regular contact with Little League International and GA State Little League.  We are all working hard to develop a resumption plan for this season. We appreciate your continued patience in these unprecedented times.
 
Today we have more questions than answers, but we do want to share with you the answers that we do have.
 
1. Is it ok for teams to organize and practice on their own?
Unfortunately, no it isn't. We cannot allow any practices that are associated with OCLL. In addition, the county has closed all fields.  Please do not organize or attend unofficial practices. Please do not attempt to use any of the fields.
 
2. Does OCLL have a plan for fitting in games and practices considering how much time has been missed?
A schedule for when activities resume has not been created at this time. The situation is still evolving rapidly and we will not put out a revised schedule out until we are reasonably sure we will be able to resume league activities.
 
3. When will we know more?
It may be several days or weeks before there is clarity about what the plan will be for the Spring 2020 season. The situation is still evolving rapidly. We will keep you updated via social media and email as soon as we have any additional information to share.
 
Thank you for sticking with us and being patient as we navigate these difficult times. We know it's challenging for all of us but we will get through this.  And hopefully sooner rather than later, we will all be back on the field playing baseball and softball again.  

Stay Safe! Stay Positive! Stay Healthy!
