How will Uniforms be handled for the 2021 Season? As registration has closed uniforms for all teams are being ordered! We anticipate receiving uniforms and getting them to the players week of April 12th!
Parent Volunteerism: As communicated previously, Volunteerism is the lifeblood that makes a league and season happen. This year we continue to charge upfront a $150 fee for volunteerism. For the parents and guardians who are able to donate their time, and in addition to the traditional needs the League and Season have requested from volunteers, additional measures related to (but not limited to): sanitization, cleanliness, contact distancing while being mindful of the neighbors in the neighborhood will be needed as it relates achieving the TEN (10) hours of time per family. In other words - be it Team Parent, Crossing Guard, etc. we will also ask volunteers to help with crowd control, contact distancing, mounting signs, cleaning facilities and more. Those who choose to donate their time will receive this $150 back. And for those who do not have the time to volunteer - 100% understandable. Again, as a non-profit the way this organization will function is by people donating their time or their funds.
How many Players will be on a team during the Red Tier phase? (3/24/21 - Santa Clara County has entered Orange Tier; MLL is awaiting guidance and guidelines related to youth baseball and Orange Tier) Minimum team size will be 9. NO MORE THAN 14 PLAYERS PER TEAM; Coincides with SCC Mandatory Directive for Youth and Adult Recreational Athletic Activities Guidance posted Here: https://www.sccgov.org/sites/covid19/Documents/mandatory-directive-for-youth-and-adult-recreational-athletic-activities.pdf
How will teams be transitioned for Game Play? As of March 24th, 2021 Santa Clara County has transitioned to Orange Tier status. We are following the guidance from the CDPH. Full details can be reviewed:
Will We Have Opening Day Ceremonies? As of March 24th, 2021 SCC is in Orange Tier. While restrictions are less prohibitive than more stringent tiers, we are "soft launching" our season on Saturday, March 27th. Once we progress into April the thought is to host a "We're Back" after the county reaches an Orange Tier (provided the guidelines allow us to do so) in a safe and contact distance manner for everyone to enjoy. More details to follow!
Will Moreland Little League Teams Play Other Little League Teams? Yes! Our league is currently working with other leagues within District 44 to arrange "interlock" games. Our Scheduler, Commissioners and Board are hyper-focused on getting our season in place and underway while also working with other leagues to institute time frames on when we would start to play each other. More details to follow.
Will there be signs posted at the fields? Yes, and this was initially completed 2/13/21. The MLL BOD and Volunteers (YOU) will engage and post signs accordingly. Please review the portion related to 2021 Volunteerism for MLL in 2021
Is COVID-19 Testing Required? Per the CDPH most recent updated FAQ posted 3/22/21:
"Testing is required for some sports and strongly encouraged for others. Because football, rugby and water polo are high-contact sports that are likely to be played unmasked, with close, face-to-face contact exceeding 15 minutes, weekly testing is required for all participants age 13 and over and coaches in counties with a case rate between 7 and 14 per 100,000. For competition, test results must be made available within 24 hours of play. Outdoor moderate-contact sports, such as baseball, cheerleading and softball, can be played in these counties without the testing requirement"
What Else? For at least the first few weeks starting 3/27/21 we will:
For now, MASKS are REQUIRED for:
Will there be a Snack Shack? At this time the Moreland Little League Board of Directors and Officers are hyper focused on launching a 2021 season in Red Tier state. The goal is to have an operational Snack Shack as we progress from Spring to Summer. That said, for now we are saying that the Snack Shack will not be in operation in the month of March, 2021
Soft field opening inflight. Moreland Little League fields will start being used based on the Santa Clara County Health guidelines starting Saturday 2/13/2021
