Let's PLAY BALL!
by posted 05/27/2020

 

Hi Jackson Area Families, 

 

Welcome to the 2020 Baseball, Softball, and T Ball season. We are excited you have decided to join us this year. As we all know this year is going to be unique. We are going to need to make some adjustments to our games and practices so that everyone stays safe and healthy. Practices will start next week, games will begin June 15th, the season will wrap up in early August. If your child's coach has not reached out to you, please reach out to them or myself to let me know. 

 

Basics: 

  • Please have your children wash their hands before and after every practice. Please send them with sanitizer if you feel they will use it. We will also have sanitizer available at the park. 
  • Guests at the park need to practice social distancing when possible. Please plan to bring lawn chairs, blankets, or whatever you would like to sit on for the games, the bleachers will be CLOSED. 
  • Coaches will be provided with sanitizing wipes to help keep the equipment clean. The wipe buckets will be stored in the Coaches Closet and the coaches will have access to them before each game. 
  • Players should try to separate as much as possible in the dugout. We will be opening up the dugouts a bit so that the kids can spread out along the baseline. 
  • Kids should bring their own helmet, glove, and bat. We will have team helmets available, if your child needs one to use for the season, please work with the coach to get them a helmet assigned for the season. If your child doesn't have their own bat, we can always wipe the bat clean or buy your child batting gloves to wear when they hit. 
  • Please plan to eliminate Team Snacks after each game. 
  • If you are sick or have symptoms of COVID-19, please stay home and notify your coach asap.
  • If you have a family member that has tested positive for COVID-19, please stay home and notify your coach. 
  • Kids playing at the park need to be supervised, please have your children use sanitizer when they are done playing. 
  • The bathrooms will be closed unless we can get the Town to approve of them being unlocked (fingers crossed). We have ordered 4 portable toilets, we will do our best to keep them clean, however, we do not pay anyone for this service, therefore your help keeping them clean is appreciated. 
  • Concessions will NOT be available unless the Town reverses its decision to prohibit us from providing concessions. We are deeply saddened by the Town decision to keep the concession stand closed, that being said, volunteer hours are going to be a bit of a challenge. I am hoping to provide everyone with more direction in the coming days. In the meantime feel free to bring coolers and beverages for your family, please pick up after yourself. 
  • Milwaukee Brewers Little League night - TBD
  • Raffle tickets will be distributed to the Head Coaches. Please get them from the Head Coach early in the season. The raffle drawing will take place on July 18th. 
  • JAYBA Party July 18th - TBD
  • J-Hawks tryouts will occur in late July at Town Hall Fields

Please refer to the guidelines for any additional questions. If you have concerns you would like to discuss, please feel free to reach out to me for help. 

 

Thank you,

2020 JAYBA Safety Guidelines
by posted 05/22/2020

Hi Parents and Happy Friday, 

 

I would like to first wish you all a happy Memorial Day weekend. I hope the weather stays nice and we can all enjoy some much needed fresh air. 

As you know we are working with the surrounding communities to determine the best path to open the 2020 baseball season. We have been hard at work keeping track of all the changes in our State's guidelines and doing our best to prepare for the season. As of today, we are planning to play baseball, softball, and tee-ball this year. We would like to open the season with practices on June 1st and quickly start games by June 15th. Our goal is to have the season completed by the first week of August. 

If we are able to play there will be many changes. We are going to implement a plethora of safety measures to try to keep everyone healthy. We plan to have hand sanitizer pumps all over to help encourage a clean environment. In addition you will see some changes on the field and how the coaches run the game. We are going to do our best to implement social distancing and safety precautions, for example, this year the bleachers will be closed and the dugouts will be limited to three players. All of the changes are located in the guidelines. Please take a moment and read through them and let us know if you have any concerns, the document will be posted following this message. If you have concerns, beyond what has been expressed in this document and you would like a refund, you are eligible. We want to provide everyone an opportunity to read through the guidelines and make their own decision if they would like to play or not. 

Finally, it comes with a heavy heart to say, we are able to provide concession in 2020. The Town has barred us from offering concessions of any kind, and the use of the pavilion bathrooms. We are unclear if these rules will stand, however that is what we have been told. We will be ordering extra portable toilets and we will work to try to find handwashing stations, however, these items are in HIGH demand right now. This is an evolving situation and I will do my best to keep you all in the loop. If you have any questions, please let me know how I can help. Have a great holiday weekend. 

 

Thank you, 


Greg Winn
