To our Little League families and players,
Little League International has cancelled the Little League World Series and Regional Postseason play but has reinstated the regular season play for the 2020 season on May 12th. The key here is Little League International defers to state and local government on ability to play. Currently the Stay at Home Order is transitioning to a Stay Safe Plan here in Minnesota. The city fields are planned to remain closed until 6/30. We will most likely hear from the governor on 6/1 regarding groups of 10 or more. A return to baseball plan has been created and provided to the city with how we could potentially play a season in the new normal taking into account social distancing and other precautions.
The St. Louis Park Little League board of directors will determine a path forward using guidance from Little League International, our state and local government. The season may occur starting 7/1. If the season is cancelled we will provide refunds on the 2020 season once that decision is made.
In the meantime please use the link below to take the survey by 5/19 to help in our planning process for the potential 7/1 start date. https://bit.ly/SLPLL2020survey

As part of their support of our program, DICK’S Sporting Goods will be offering our families, coaches, and participants their deepest discount. Since stores are closed and the discount is not available on-line, we will work with DICK'S on a future shopping event date.
Please continue to show your support by choosing DICK’S Sporting Goods as your preferred sporting goods retailer.
Registration is closed for kid pitch (9-12) and machine pitch (5-8) levels. If you questions please email email@example.com Or check out FAQ page here.
After discussions with our board members and in line with Little League International recommendations, we are canceling player evaluations on March 14-15 and March 21.
Player evaluations are just one element of creating our teams for the 2020 season. Coach feedback from the end of the previous season is often more reflective of a player's ability, and we are confident we can build balanced regular season teams based on that information. All registered players will be placed on teams, including players who are new to the league and may not have 2019 end-of-season feedback.
We will collect volunteer deposit checks at a later date when distributing uniforms.
Thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate this rapidly changing situation. We will continue to follow the guidelines set by the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Minnesota Department of Public Health, Hennepin County, and St. Louis Park Public Schools.
Please watch for further updates over the next few weeks.
