FGSL 2020 Season

Dear FGSLL Families,

It is with a heavy heart that the Board of Directors, must announce that we are cancelling the 2020 season.  This was one of the toughest decisions that I believe FGSLL has ever had to make.  We took every  family's response to the survey, the protocols set out by Little League international, Arizona Little League and the City of Flagstaff into consideration as we made this decision.  We were also in constant communication with both West Flagstaff and Continental League.  Ultimately, we felt that the safety of our players and families needed to be our #1 priority.  Therefore, we could not ask families to choose between their love for the game or the safety of their own. 

This was not an easy decision and we understand some will disagree while others will completely agree, but we could not look past the negative impact that a potential outbreak would have had on our FGSLL community.  It was written all through the survey responses: your concerns were real, the fear was legitimate and our desire to protect our youth for future seasons outweighed the potential to hold a shortened and unusual season.

We hope that everyone continues to stay safe as the State begins to reopen and we try to return to normalcy.  It will be some time before everyone feels comfortable and we get back to a normal way of life.  Please understand, FGSLL will continue to focus on giving our young girls an opportunity to play one of the greatest games when we return to the field in 2021. 

We will be offering refunds of the 2020 registration fee or the option to donate the fee back to the league.  More information will be communicated soon.  We need to gather all of the information through the registration software and set a date for a potential drive thru check pick up.  Unfortunately, the only way to refund, is by check.  We are hopeful to begin the refunds next week.

The entire Board would like to thank you for your patience as we worked through this unpredictable and unfortunate situation.  We were looking forward to another tremendous season of softball.  We have been working hard with the City of Flagstaff to improve the experience that our girls get during the spring softball season.  We had completed our tryouts, drafted our teams and were planning another awesome opening day and regular season.

Again, we want to encourage all of our players and families to continue to work and be ready to come back next year.  FGSLL would not be as strong of an organization with out the support from our families and our community.   

Stay safe,

 

Joe Pozar Jr.
