Little League has supsended all practices and games until June 1st, 2020 due to the COVID 19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
The Carlisle LL Board met last night to discuss plans for the 2020 baseball season. Now that schools have been officially closed for the remainder of the school year, our plan is to begin the baseball season on June 1st and run through July 17. We'd likely hold practices the first week back and then start games the second week. Due to limited field space we'd schedule two teams to practice at the same time so everybody could get in a couple practices before games start. We'll work with coaches on practice plans if needed in an effort to maximize use of practice time.
Of course all of this is contingent upon getting the green light from the state, city of Carlisle, Little League International and the Iowa District 5 Administrator. *****If we are not able to start the season on June 1st then unfortunately we will have to cancel it completely. If that happens, the board will determine next steps.
In the meantime, please continue to have your players practice at home (adhering to all social distancing guidelines). For anyone who isn't sure what to work on, LL has resources for parents on their website: https://www.littleleague.org/university/backyard-tips/ .
