AYL Families
We truly understand that this is a difficult time for everyone. We also know that everyone would like specific dates and answers, regarding the start of the AYL spring sports seasons. We are in a very unpredictable time, and we do not know when the social distancing mandates will be removed so at this time we do not know what decisions will be made in the coming weeks. What we can tell you is this; we believe strongly that getting back to sports will be incredibly important for everyone involved, coaches, players, officials and fans, and for that reason alone, we will maintain the plan for a later start to the spring season
 
In light of the social distancing guideline extension set forth from 4/1- 4/30, our current plan will target the start of the season in early May.  It is not our intention to give false hope to families, however, we are trying to get through this with the best possible outcome for you and your children. We continue to remain hopeful that we can open the fields and get the kids out to play as soon as the state allows us to do so! Returning to some form of normalcy will be crucial in the healing process for both children and parents. 
 

As most families are aware, The AYL has been following all state and local guidelines including CHSAA, which has delayed their season.    

We will continue to follow the state guidelines and recommendations, however, unlike CHSAA, we can extend our season into the summer months (this is only a possibility).  If a time comes that CHSAA cancels their spring season, we will no longer follow their lead as we can play further into the season than they can.

 

Board members are meeting virtually on a weekly basis, discussing options for all of the AYL sports.  We are committed to getting the kids back to what they love most and helping you and your families regain the normalcy of enjoying youth sports.

We hope that you and your family are staying healthy!  We appreciate your patience and trust in us during these challenging times.

AYL COVID-19 Update

AYL Families 

For more than 50 years the AYL has brought communities together through youths sports. We know it has been a trying time and our hearts go out to everyone affected by the Corona Virus Covid-19 Pandemic.  

As the Covid-19 issue remains ever changing the health and well-being of our families has remained our top priority. Because of that, we are postponing all AYL Youth Sports activities until further notice. This does not mean we are cancelling any of our spring sports season including: Volleyball, Baseball, Softball, Boys and Girls Lacrosse. 

 

FAQ’s 

When will you start the season? 

We are currently following all state and local guidelines including CHSAA, which has delayed their seasons until April 18th, 2020. We cannot predict what is going to happen in the coming weeks and we think it is irresponsible to attempt to predict what will happen. We can assure you this- we will have a season….we just don’t know when we will be given the all clear. 

Why not just cancel?

There are several reasons not to cancel:

  • We believe that when this situation ends our kids (and parents) will need to return to some form of normalcy to help in the healing process. 
  • Keeping the season will help our local small businesses, sports clubs and officials. End of year parties (at local establishments), part-time officials, and youth sports organizations (who often operate on a thread) are a critical part of a strong community. Now is the time to stand together and make sure we stay strong. 
  • Cancelling puts our non-profits clubs at risk of not being able offer all of the services we  all have had in the past. 

Can I get a refund?

At this time NO clubs will be offering refunds. There are a couple reasons for this:

  • We have already spent of portion of your dues on non-recoverable expenses including: insurance, field permits, training, sports equipment, scheduling etc.) . 
  • WE WILL HAVE A SEASON….it just may start a little late. 

What will the season look like?

Every idea is on the table. We have creative, smart people working to ensure we have a solution. We cannot know what is going to happen over the next few weeks and thus cannot predict the solution we will use. It will be different for each sport. 

i.e. Condensed season- more double headers- tournament play every weekend- using practice times for games….there are a lot more ideas and will let you know as soon a we can. . 

I know this is a time where kids and families are anxious or even scared. We get it we too have families. We want nothing more than to get our kids and families back together at the parks, gyms or baseball diamonds for some fun, exercise and great competition with friends. 

On behalf of the entire AYL I want to thank for putting your trust in us and we appreciate the support for your local community based club. We are committed to working through these challenging circumstances together.
