July Mixed Tournament

Week 1 Done

We got through week one without a lot of issues and it seemed everyone was happy to be back at the ballpark.

Just a couple of reminders and things to clear up.

I have a few teams on my S**T list already. Next time the player will be removed, or the coach
and then the entire team.

Games scheduled for diamond 5 will be moved to diamond 8. We had an irrigation issue on 5 that caused some damage.

Softballs. We hope to get more next week but as all leagues in the Province were starting at the same time we didn’t
get our full order.

Teams are responsible to clean up after themselves. We are short staffed right now so please help out.

We are looking at running a tournament mid-late July so check with your teams to see the interest level.

Softball Valley is also looking to hire concession/cart workers so if you know any one have them email a resume to hank@softballvalley.com
or talk to the concession staff.

Welcome Back To Softball Valley!

Please follow the COVID Rules as we continue to move towards Stage 3 of Alberta’s Open for Summer Plan

  1. Distancing and masking requirements remain in effect. Mask as needed in areas where physical distancing cannot be maintained (ex. when not actively playing, washrooms, concession, spectating, in dugouts, etc.). 
  2. When entering/exiting the park, please maintain distancing from other household cohorts.  Once inside the gates, spread out and proceed to your diamond.  Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout the facility and it is recommended that you perform hand hygiene before and after games.
  3. Players & coaches are encouraged to monitor/screen for COVID-19 symptoms prior to arriving to practice and play.  If you are sick or have COVID symptoms (cough, fever, shortness of breath, runny nose, sore throat, loss of taste or smell or other symptoms), stay home and do not attend.
  4. Minimal shared use of equipment. If equipment is shared, it is the coaches responsibility to ensure the team cleans and sanitizes the equipment between uses.
  5. Commonly touched equipment used for game play (e.g. game ball) should be routinely replaced or disinfected during the course of practice or play. 
  6. Spectators are directed to the baselines/outfield where they are advised to maintain physical distancing by household.  The playground will be open and it will be the responsibility of the parents to ensure their child performs hand hygiene before and after use.
  7. Spectators must stay out of designated areas for players and coaches. 
  8. Outdoor fixed seating facilities (bleachers) – 1/3 seated capacity. 
  9. All players and coaches should have their own water bottles. Community water jugs or shared cups should not be used. Beverage carts will be available throughout the evening.  Please do not congregate around the cart or remove product on your own.  Staff will provide you with your beverage and as per AGLC guidelines, you will be required to open alcoholic beverages prior to walking away from the cart.
  10. Coaches plate meeting: one coach allowed for each team and must maintain physical distancing. 
  11. Conferences should be allowed at the pitching area only with the coach and pitcher/catcher while maintaining proper physical distancing. 
  12. No player should lick their fingers during softball activities. No shaking hands, high-fives, etc. No sunflower seeds will be allowed.
  13. Participants must not compete if they are feeling unwell. 
  14. Contact information of the coaches, officials and players should be recorded nightly by the coaches and maintained for 2 weeks, in order to assist with AHS contact tracing, if necessary.
