Restart - Mentor Girls Softball (June 1, 2020)

On behalf of the Mentor Girls Softball League Leadership, thank you for your patience and understanding as we deal with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.  This has been a challenging situation, but we will provide a safe and fun environment for our Players, Coaches and Families for Summer.

We will be following Federal, State and Local guidelines and have instituted procedures to be able to play safety this summer.  We have also adjusted our timetable and rules to mitigate the virus.  Please read the information below.

  • Registration and Refunds have ended 
     
  • Players, Parents (if player is under 18 years of age) and Coaches will need to sign a waiver stating that they will follow our Safety protocols before they can begin practices and games.
     
  • All players, coaches and spectators will adhere to a physical six-foot distancing while off the playing field (unless they are with family members).
     
  • Wearing of face coverings is not mandatory but it is recommended at the softball fields.
     
  • There will be Sanitation Stations on both the Visitors and Home Teams side of the field to periodically use hand sanitizer.  
     
  • The league will no longer provide helmets and bats.  Every player will need to provide their own helmet and bat.  We will have a limited supply of used helmets and bats to those in need.  We will work with some local vendors to get discounts on these items.
     
  • Every player will bring a folding chair to sit in.  We will not be using the team dugouts to sit all the players.
     
  • The league will be doing additional items to improve safety.
