COVID-19 Update

 

By now, most of you have heard Governor Lee’s call for all Tennessee public schools to remain closed for the rest of the academic year.  While this is not the outcome anyone was hoping for, we can get behind anything that keeps the safety and well-being of our players and community top of mind – even if that means taking a break from the game.

So given this new guidance, our Board has decided to postpone our Spring 2020 season.  This means we will transfer our Spring season exactly as it was designed – divisions, players, coaches, and teams – to the Fall of 2020.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR OUR PLAYERS?

For those players already registered, nothing will be needed from you once we start back up in the Fall. We believe that’s a win for everyone because in many ways our season was well underway:  uniforms were ordered, teams were practicing, and forming bonds - some had even written their dugout chants!

So like you, we want to see our Spring season come to life as it was intended, and that’s what we’re planning to do in the Fall.

We also know that while this decision works for most families, it may not be ideal for some.  That’s why we are fully committed to working with our parents to ensure no family or player is negatively impacted by our decision to transfer this season into the Fall of 2020.  So, if you need to talk to us about our refund policy, located on our Parent Page under SBL REGISTRATION REFUND POLICY, or any other need related to the Fall of 2020, please reach out to us at [email protected] or feel free to contact any member of our Board (SBL BOARD CONTACT).  That’s our job.

In the meantime, keep doing those drills at home, watch out for our updates via email, social media, and your team coaches, and let’s all look forward to a great season together – in the Fall!

Thank you for your patience during this time and your passion for the game.

SBL REGISTRATION REFUND POLICY

Full refunds will not be offered once a player has been placed on a team, as we then order uniforms.  After that, there will be a $40 uniform fee deducted for costs incurred.  Uniforms will be available to parents when they are completed.

Refunds must be requested by email to [email protected].

Common Questions

 

Here are some questions we are getting regarding the direction of the upcoming season.  We will add more as we get questions and answers.  If there is something not here that you would like to know, please reach out to us at [email protected].

 

Are we cancelling the Spring season?

  • We are transferring all registrations to the Fall program.  No additional fees will be needed to play in the Fall season for those that had already registered for the Spring 2020 season.

Will my player need to move up in the Fall?

  • For this next season, all teams will stay as they were drafted in the Spring 2020 season.  No one will move up in age division.

What if my player is not able to play in the Fall due to other sports or activities?

  • If you know you will not be able to return for the fall season, we will be refunding Spring 2020 registrations based on our league policy which is located on our Parent Page under SBL REGISTRATION REFUND POLICY.

My player did not get drafted because he plays in the 13/14 or 15/17 division.  How will we know what team he/she is on in the Fall?

  • Because our 13/14 and 15/17 divisions never got drafted, we will be doing a draft for them in the Fall.  No one will move up based on age.

What happens if my player has grown by the time we get to play?  Are you going to verify uniform sizes remain correct?

  • We will still have registration opportunities to fill in teams that lose players.  Parents will have the opportunity to resize their players and if they need a different size, we will be able to swap those out.
