Letter from TLL President

Good morning TLL Families,

As always we hope each and every one of you are doing well and are safe. As we continue to deal with the ongoing challenges of COVID-19 I wanted to provide you all with an update following our latest TLL Board meeting.

This last week, the Board voted to put in place a final date to either start or cancel the Spring/Summer season. Based upon the latest information around re-opening by the the State of Oregon and looking at the calendar to see how a modified season would be possible we have determined that on June 22nd we will either begin practices or cancel the season and begin to focus on Fall activities. If we are able to begin we would run a season later than normal into August.

As we have all seen, much can change in just a few days and should there be a significant change either way before June 22nd we will revise accordingly. Regardless, we will not be pushing out past the June 22nd date as any start afterwards would be untenable to execute effectively.

As a Board, we feel if there is chance we can get kids safely on the field it is worth trying but we also know that there comes a point where it can't be properly executed. Between now and June 22nd we will be constructing a plan on how we can safely allow players, coaches and families back on the fields. Before any activity would start, we would share our plan and explain any measures we would be taking to ensure the safest possible return.

There is still a large majority of kids/parents that have not rescinded their registration which tells us that there is a high interest in trying to fit some type of season in. We want to provide that opportunity if possible. For us, as a Board and as parents/coaches of players, nothing would be more satisfying than to hear the crack of the bat in 2020.

Lastly, as you evaluate the months ahead and determine that playing during the time frame of late June to mid-August isn't possible for you then please let us know. You can notify us at refund@tigardlittleleague.com

Thank you for all of your support and understanding as navigate the unknown in the weeks ahead,

Have a great day.

Best,
Joshua Breese
TLL President
