Pinole Hercules Little League (PHLL) 2021 Baseball and Softball update on the start of season.
As of today, we have not received authorization from West Contra Costa County Unified School District (WCCUSD) to resume PHLL activities at Ellerhorst and Collins fields. We are continuing to communicate with WCCUSD on their plans regards use of fields.
The Pinole Valley High School (PVHS) softball teams are schedule to use the Ellerhorst fields beginning next week and into June.
We are working on reserving fields at Pinole Valley Park (PVP) for Baseball Junior, other fields in Hercules and nearby for Teeball, Minor, and Major.
The current schedule to start Saturday, April 3rd, is still our target. We may have divisions starting on different days depending on timing to secure use of various fields.
The objective for 2021 is returning players to the field and be with other players to safely engage in baseball and softball activities.
There will be no skills assessment (evaluations/tryouts) for 2021. Players will be assigned to teams by their respective PHLL Division VP. Assignments methods may differ by divisions. Assignment may be by date of birth, registration date, returning players from 2020 registration, and other.
Pinole Hercules Little League 2021 COVID-19 Protocols has been developed following California Department of Public Health (CDPH) guidance for outdoor youth recreational sports, Centers for Disease, Control, and Prevention (CDC) considerations for youth sports, Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS) guidance for youth sports, and Little League (LL) guidance for coronavirus pandemic mitigation.
Per CDPH, due to the nature and risk of transmission while participating in Outdoor High-Contact and Moderate-Contact (baseball and softball) sports, each parent/guardian will sign an informed consent indicating their understanding and acknowledgement of the risks.
The PHLL Division VP will be communicating information and instructions as they become available.
Thank you for your patience as the league works through the process to safely resume activity for PHLL.
