This change covers the updates to bats that can be used.

COVID Policy Update

If a player tests positive for Covid he/she will isolate for 5 days at home, followed by 5 days of masking( but able to play if testing negative).  After the five day period if you retest and you are positive, you must isolate for the full 10 day period ( and retest negative before playing). 

Weekly Batting Practice being held at Buffalo Creek, starting at 8:30

Batting practice is held on Saturday mornings, starting at 8:30 am, at the Buffalo Creek ball diamond (closest to the Middle School).
If it is occupied, we will try to be on the football field directly behind it. If that is taken, we will try to be on one of the Little League fields.
(parking for those fields are accessed through the driveway to the golf course. )
Please call the rain out number ( 301-4129) after 7:20 am Saturday to confirm that BP is scheduled!
