After losing a season to COVID-19, Central Whidbey Little League is moving forward with plans to play in 2021.

The league issued the following letter Thursday morning:

 

Dear CWLL Families!

As we begin planning for the 2021 baseball and softball season, we are reaching out to you to advise that Little League International and our local District 11 have requested that all leagues begin preparations for the 2021 season, subject to current COVID-19 safety protocols.

Accordingly, CWLL is planning our 2021 season, that will include:

T-Ball, Rookies and Minors: 4-11 years of age
Majors: 10-12
Juniors: 13 -15

Players will be placed in a division age-appropriate and commensurate to their skill level, subject to our Player Agent’s approval.

We anticipate commencing with sign-ups early January, 2021.

The district has proposed the following schedule, again subject to the COVID-19 situation and the availability of fields in other District 11 leagues:

T-Ball, Rookies and Minors: Practices beginning early March, with games starting the end of March, and ending the latter part of May.

Majors: Practices beginning mid-late March, with games starting early April, and ending the end of May.

Juniors: Practices beginning the end of May, with games starting the second week of June, and ending July 10-11.

As with all volunteer organizations, CWLL’s growth, much less its continuation, is solely dependent on the number of volunteers engaged in its activities.

CWLL finds itself in a unique and challenging position at this time.

The vast majority of our board, volunteers, umpires, and some of our coaches are presently serving their last year of participation.

Most have kids or grandkids that are ‘aging out’ after the 2021 season.

In our opinion, it is imperative if CWLL is to continue, we need parents, grandparents, family members and/or your neighbors to join our league.

To learn how we operate and how we, you, can continue offering all the kids of Central Whidbey the opportunity to play little league baseball and softball and make lifelong memories!

Regardless of your level of knowledge, CWLL will teach you … coaching, umpiring, concession stand, scorekeeping, administrative, fundraising.

Please consider helping us out so our kids can enjoy this beautiful game for years to come!

If you have any questions or have any interest in ensuring CWLL’s continuation, we can be reached at centralwhidbeyll@gmail.com

On behalf of the 2020/2021 CWLL Board Of Directors, thank you for your consideration.

Regards,

Gordon D. McMillan
CWLL – President
