Spring Sports - AYL Update
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.
Below are some of the details of the AYL league offering.
We will be kicking off the season with our AA league games starting on April 4 & 5, 2020. The AA level will play 10-11 league games and a single (1) elimination tournament ending on 5/9/20 (5/10/20 is the hard-stop back-up date).
League games will be on Saturdays (generally double headers) and Sundays (generally single games starting after 12pm). Skip dates for this Spring league will be Easter Sunday (4/12).
Due to the anticipated Spring weather in Colorado the AYL will be including one (1) pre-loaded scheduled league game in the 10-11 game package. AYL will only re-schedule games of loss after the one (1) game that has been already pre-loaded. Please note that the Spring league does have a hard stop date of May 10, 2020 and games cannot be played beyond that date due to field permit changes. AYL will make every effort to re-schedule games prior to that hard stop date but no guarantees are offered or implied.
Rules for the Spring league will be the same as the Fall (excluding age determination as it will be: 12/31/19).
