After reviewing the guidelines from the CDC, the State of Delaware, and Little League International, DLL does not feel we could provide a safe, fun and meaningful Spring season for our players. It is with a heavy heart that DLL Board of Directors announces the cancellation of our 2020 Little League Season.
We have remained very hopeful since the start of this pandemic and we're committed to getting our players back on our fields. However at this time we feel that we do not have the necessary resources to meet all of the Phase 2 guidelines and requirements. Therefore after several extensive conversations amongst our board members, we have decided to cancel the spring season. We are thankful that you have stuck with us through this uncertain time and we hope to see all of you for the 2021 season!
Please understand, this decision was not an easy one to make. Our top priority is the safety of our players and their families. An email with the following information will be sent to all email addresses that were listed on the online registration forms by the tomorrow evening (6/17).
As a nonprofit we rely heavily on registration fees to cover our monthly operating costs such as water and electric fee's and mowing expenses. Even though there won't be any games played during this spring season our fields still require a significant amount of effort to maintain. Dover Little League appreciates any amount of your registration fee that you are able to donate to the league. Therefore we are also offering a partial refund/donation back to league which will go a long way in ensuring that Dover LL will remain an important part our community.
Each player is required to fill out a google form (below), with your refund option selected. The options for refunds are as follows:
1.) Full refund: You will need to send Dover Little League a stamped envelope with your address on the front by July 20, 2020 to:
PO Box 1764
Dover, DE 19903
2.) Donation to the League: This option consists of a full donation of your payment to DLL. This money will go towards ball park maintenance and upkeep.
3.) Partial Donation: you can select an amount to donate to the league, then request a specific amount for your refund. This option will require you to send a stamped envelope to DLL to receive your portion of the refund.
We still intend on having a Fall Ball season and will begin making arrangements later in July. We miss all of our DLL families and hope everyone has a great summer.
Please note: Your decision will need to be made (and envelope sent, if you choose option 1 or 3) by July 20, 2020. To make your decision please fill out the google form in full.
If you have any questions or concerns please message our page or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
