NALL Update for the 2020 Spring/Summer Season

Hello Newark American families,
 
Based on the input of parents, volunteers and other leagues, and our own evaluation of what we can do safely as a league, the Newark American Little League Board of Directors has decided on the following:
  • We will cancel the season for Tee-Ball, A and AA divisions 
  • We will continue to pursue seasons for AAA, Majors, Juniors and Seniors in accordance with state guidelines and with continued interest from volunteer coaches and families 
The decision to cancel the season for the younger kids is not easy as we know these kids represent the future of the league, but given the challenges of social distancing and other safety measures for children at these age levels as well as decreased participation interest, the decision was necessary.  If you're a parent of a child in one of the canceled divisions and have questions, please contact Mark Lutes, Player Agent, at [email protected].
 
At this time, all families whose season was canceled will automatically receive a credit to their Newark American Little League account as managed by Sports Connect. We will continue to honor requests for refunds if you wish. Please make those requests to Brant Hauser, President, at [email protected].
Because Newark American Little League is a non-profit, you have the ability to make a tax-deductible donation of your refund to the league.  If you would like to donate your refund, please send an email by Sunday, June 7, to Mike Mood, Treasurer, at [email protected]. We will begin to process refunds soon thereafter.
 
For those who are participating in AAA, Majors, Juniors and Seniors, we will continue to monitor the state guidelines and alert you of plans for practices and games. Most of the communication will come through your coaches from this point forward.
 
We will continue to keep you posted and appreciate your patience and the positive feedback we've received to date.

Thank you,
 
Brant Hauser
President, Newark American Little League
