Update for BAAB Families

Monday, June 8, 2020

 

Good afternoon, Broncos! I hope you are well. I want to update you on a few items.

 

Refunds

We do not have any new information to share. If you have questions regarding refunds, please refer to my June 3 email.

 

Bethesda Park Reopening

Good news! Bethesda Park has reopened. The Gwinnett County Parks & Recreation Department has removed the locks from the fields and batting cages. The fields and cages are now open for use by the general public. The county does issue permits for specific organizations, including BAAB. In general, these permits restrict use on nights and weekends. As a general rule, if the field/cage is available, you are welcome to use it. If a team arrives for a scheduled game/practice, they have priority.

 

Resumption of Play

  • Our year-round travel teams can resume play. Managers will contact players about practice times and tournaments.
  • For our rec league participants, we are focusing on the start of our fall season. The permitting process is extensive. We have submitted a preliminary plan to the county, which allows travel teams to begin practice. The next step is for our board to develop a comprehensive plan for the fall. At the present time, we expect to open registration for our fall season on July 1 and begin practices in August.
  • Our board considered many options, including a summer season. As we considered the timing of a summer season, we did not feel that we had the time necessary to move forward. Selecting managers, organizing teams, and purchasing uniforms is at least a 2-3 week process. We did not receive guidance regarding reopening until last week. For now, feel free to use the fields and cages as described.
