ATTENTION ALL ARMSTRONG ATHLETICS FAMILIES:
Armstrong Athletics received the following information from Little League International this evening:
As information continues to become available regarding the increasing spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), we wanted to provide you, our leagues and district administrators, with additional guidance on the implementation of the Little League® program in your local communities.
Little League International operates more than 6,500 programs in more than 84 countries, and therefore, we recommend that our leagues exercise an abundance of caution and implement a temporary suspension of all league activities until no earlier than April 6.
While each community is being affected differently by the coronavirus, the Little League International Board of Directors and staff feel that it is in the best interest of our volunteers and participant families to delay the implementation of the Little League season to begin no earlier April 6.
For those leagues that have already begun their seasons, we kindly ask that you postpone all league activity that may involve the gathering of individuals for games, practices, events, or meetings. If you have not started your season, we kindly ask that you modify your schedule and season plans to start no earlier than April 6.
The Little League District 26 Board of Directors have mandated that all leagues within the district suspend all activities until April 6, 2020. This means Armstrong Athletics is suspending the following activities:
– Little League Practices and Games
– Little League Player Evaluations
– Little League Meetings
– Little League Clinics
*No Little League activities will be permitted at any Armstrong Athletics facilities until the suspension is lifted. We will provide additional information as it is supplied to us.
We are closely monitoring the PONY Baseball and USA Softball organizations. We are concerned about the safety of all of our athletes in our organization and our Board of Directors will ultimately make a decision in regards to these organizations activities within our league.
We will relay any information we receive as soon as we receive it! Thank you for your understanding!
Please feel free to reach out to me with any additional questions or concerns.

Armstrong Athletics President
