Rookies, Minors, Majors can schedule an additonal 3 practices (1 weekday, 2 weekends) for a max total of 11 practices over the course of the 3 week practice schedule heading into the season. Once a team had reached 11 practices they will not be able to schedule any additonal practices.

The head coach must send an email to the league email address at stoughtonyouthbaseball@gmail.com to request additional practices or to make updates to the practices schedule posted below. If you are unable to practice on the dates listed below you must also notify the league so we can make your spot available to others that may be looking to practice.

SYB Update

05/21/20

Dear Stoughton/Avon Youth Baseball families,

We hope you are all staying healthy and safe. We thank you for your patience, understanding, and support as we navigate through these unparalleled times. Earlier this week Governor Baker announced his plans for re-opening the state. According to the governor's plan youth sports can resume activities in Phase 2/Phase 3 with specific guidelines.

While we are all very anxious to start, the safety and well-being of our players is always going to be our top priority and we plan on proceeding with caution as move forward with our season. The board of directors met this past week and decided to resume baseball activities starting in mid-July with games targeted to start on August 1st and ending on September 12th.

We recognize this season will be different for everyone. We will take all necessary precautions and follow all recommended guidelines set forth by the state and town to provide a safe environment for players, families and fans. Once we understand what is needed, we can appropriately plan and implement the required guidelines before the kids take the fields. We will send out another communication after we receive the new guidelines to inform everyone the changes that will be implemented this season.

At this time the fields will remain closed while we wait for state and town approval allowing youth sports to resume. Thank you for your understanding and we will be in touch soon

Board of Directors
