Wayland Little League

Summer Baseball Update (ages 9-15) Registration Closes June 9th

(Posted June 3rd)

To the Wayland Little League Community,

We understand this has been an incredibly challenging spring for reasons that go well beyond the baseball or softball field. These are extremely tough times with very big and real world issues at the forefront. We certainly wish you and your family nothing but the best.

After many meetings with local leagues, District 13 and Little League International, Wayland Little League has opened registration for summer baseball for the following divisions:

  • Minors Baseball (ages 9 -10)
  • Majors Baseball (ages 11 - 12)
  • Minutemen Baseball/Babe Ruth (ages 13-15)

You can register here, but please read below for more information.

We fully understand and respect that the decision to play this season is more complex than in the past. Every person's situation is different, and we support a families decision to decide whether they choose to play.

For those who choose to play, Wayland Little League will need your continued flexibility, which has been demanded of all of us the last 10+ weeks, as we look to provide an opportunity for players to get back out on the field.

Wayland Little League will continue to receive guidance from Little League International, the Outdoor Recreation Advisory Task Force, and the Board of Health on best practices and protocols for the season. You can find a current list of these practices here, which includes such measures as no sharing of equipment. These protocols are subject to change, as well as the start of each phase, based on the guidance our district receives. We do not make all of the rules or policies, but we will certainly abide by them.

Summer League Timeline (as of today):

  • Registration opens today and will stay open for one week for players to opt-in. Roster sizes will be limited this year, and we will not be able to take registrations after June 9th.
  • June 10th-14th: Mandatory coach training, parents meeting, small group practice schedule sent out for players.
  • June 15th: Outdoor practices begin for all divisions. Practices will be held during the week. Your child will not receive a practice time until registration closes and we know exactly how many groups there will be.
  • June 29th (Phase 3): Games are scheduled to begin in the Minutemen League (ages 13-15). Games will be played predominantly on the weekdays and will wrap-up at the end of July/early August.
  • June 29th (Phase 3) - July 14th: The Minors and Majors program will play in-town games/scrimmages (Wayland vs. Wayland).
  • July 15th - August 15th/22nd: This summer, Wayland will compete in the Jimmy Fund League with Weston, Sudbury, and Assabet Valley (ages 9-12), as well as field teams in the Bay State program (ages 9-12). Evaluations and info. sessions for these teams will take place in July.

 

Other information:

  • Based on the survey sent out last week, we do not have enough interest to run a summer softball program. If your daughter is interested in playing please contact us, and we will help get her into a local summer program in a surrounding community. Please note, all baseball programs are co-ed.
  • Unfortunately, there will be no programs at this time for ages 8-and-under. A more detailed email will go out to players in this age in the coming week.

 

  • Our fall programming will be announced on or around August 1st.

Thank you again for everyone's patience during this unprecedented time.

Thank you.

COVID-19 Update from Wayland Little League

Dear Wayland Little League Families,

First and foremost, we hope you and your extended family are doing well during this unprecedented time.  It was our hope the spring baseball and softball season could bring some normalcy back to your child’s daily life.  Unfortunately, with the closing of schools, fields, and of course for the safety of the entire community, the upcoming spring season has been cancelled. This is certainly tough news, even if it is the right decision. 

We will certainly miss seeing all of the players learn, compete and grow on the field this spring, but we look forward to getting back out on the diamond when it is deemed safe by state and local officials and Little League International.

What’s next?  Baseball and softball will certainly return, however, like with many things today we do not have an exact date right now.  For those new to the league, under normal circumstances we offer a spring, summer and fall season for many of our eight divisions.  It is our hope summer programs will be held for some of these divisions beginning after July 1st.  A decision on summer ball however will come later this spring. 

The Board and Officers of Wayland Little League want to make sure everyone is made whole on existing registration fees paid.  Simply allowing your payment to rollover to another season is anything but simple unfortunately in our system, and we certainly want to respect the fact that these are challenging times for many.  Costs for each season and division vary as well so we have made the decision to simply reset and provide you with a refund for the spring season.  A refund check will be mailed to you in May.  While certainly time consuming, by sending a check, this will help the league save thousands in refund processing fees. On the form below, please be sure to indicate where you would like the refund sent as many registrations did not have completed addresses.

 

Important: Please take a moment to complete the  following form.  You will have three options:

  1. Receive a full refund for the 2020 spring season via check.

  2. Receive a refund minus $40 to help the league cover expenses.

  3. Donate registration to the program for future league needs.

Finally, despite there being no baseball and softball this spring, we hope your child can get outside and work on his or her skills.  Wayland Little League will be sending out instructional tips and drills throughout the spring to help parents work with their child at home. Please be sure to follow us on Facebook @WaylandLittleLeague for updates and instructional videos as well.

We look forward to the day when the umpire says, “Play Ball!”  In the meantime, we hope you and your family stay safe and healthy.

Thank you,

Wayland Little League Board

Wayland Little League provides baseball and softball programs that serve our young players in grades Pre-K to 9th and caters for all skill levels and abilities. 

Wayland Little League strives to provide a safe, positive environment in which players can participate and thrive in organized baseball and softball leagues. We provide players with an initial introduction to and an ongoing development in baseball and softball skills. Programs are typically run in the spring, summer, and fall and are a good mix of both developmental and competitive in nature.

Supported by Wayland Park & Recreation Department for the benefit of the boys, girls, and residents of Wayland. Wayland Little League is an all-volunteer organization committed to building an appreciation for the games of baseball and softball through quality coaching and parental involvement.

Our affiliation with Little League International provides numerous direct and indirect benefits to players and their families including enhanced training and skills, development tools for all players, coaches and umpires, alignment with neighboring Little League-affiliated towns, and of course, the opportunity to field a Williamsport national tournament team.

We welcome your participation as a player, as a coach or as one of our many volunteers, as a financial contributor or team’s sponsor and as a fan.
