RE: Coronavirus /Katy American Little League
COVID-19 RULES: Look under forms and documents. Then click Summer Season Game Guidelines.
Players, Coaches, Volunteers, and Parents,
The league’s main concern is the safety of our players, parents, coaches, and volunteers. We as a community will follow guidelines to keep all safe as much as we can. We understand that some of the guidelines will not be liked, but we will need everybodies help and participation in following the rules. Sooner or later we will be able to go back to our normal. This is a situation that nobody has ever seen before.
We are issuing no contact/no handshake policy. This will be observed at each level of the organization until further notice. This includes all physical contact and extends to customary game-related activities of post-game handshakes between members of opposing teams. Instead, umpires, players, and coaches should use verbal queues, such as saying "good game" without shaking hands, high-fiving, or fist-bumping.
The league will post any positive Covid-19 test of parents and players with the division only. Once removed from the list then they have been cleared. All families who has a player or member of their family test positive is on quarantine until cleared by KALL Safety committe.
REMEMBER THE MASK RULE IS REQUIRED BY KALL UNTIL 6/1/2021.
If a team has had a player/parent test positive that team will be notified by the coach and checked to see if they had any contact. The league will put on the website and approve when they can return with medical documentation.
* 4/9/2021 Rookie 6 parent tested positive.
* 4.9.2021 minors parent tested positive.
* 4/10/2021 Intermediate player positive.
* 4/14/2021 Minor 9 parent and player tested positive.
For the mask rule: If you are sitting down watching the game away from the main area such as outfield and you are 6 feet away from all other households (which everybody should be but some are not) you do not have to wear the mask but must have it when walking around at the fields, bathroom, concessions, entering or exiting the fields or sitting in the main congested areas. Players 10U and up (or minors division and up) must wear mask while on the sidelines and when doing drills within 6 feet from each other. Players do not have to wear mask if they are in positions on the fields further than 6 feet from another player coach. Players do not have to wear a mask while on the fields during games. Coaches and any adult on the field must wear a mask at all times. This does include umpires at games.
We absolutely CANNOT have a full team in the dugout. The dugout should only be used for 3-4 batters preparing to bat. The spots are marked where the waiting batters can sit or stand.
The rest of the batting line up has to be placed outside the fence line (preferably in batting order). There are boxes where the batters can stand.
DO NOT LINE YOUR BATTERS UP BEHIND THE DUGOUT
If you see another team abusing these rules please let a board member know. If you cannot find a board member, notify the concession stand and they will find a board member. *A board member will be monitoring the fields/games nightly.
We want to make our park a safe environment so we can continue to provide a fun season for the players.
Please do your part by following these rules and we can all make it a safer place. -----Thank you, KALL Board.
