Hello Kirkland American Little League families,
It’s hard to imagine that we are already talking about playing ball, but spring isn’t too far away thankfully.
We know the 2020 season did not turn out the way we all had anticipated, but with an eye on providing a much needed outlet for our Kirkland children and families, we are still looking forward to a 2021 spring season...with our theme for this year being: Flexibility & PMA (positive mental attitude).
We still have a lot of hurdles ahead of us of course, but we want to open registration now, to begin planning for a normal or modified spring season. We are working closely with the City of Kirkland and Little League International to ensure COVID-19 safety protocols are aligned and in place for a safe season opening.
This season will be like no other we have seen in the 70 year history of Kirkland American Little League. But with a strong community behind us, we know we can give or kids the season they deserve!
Register Now ... Pay Later
Our registration system was not built for a pandemic so we have made some changes to simplify the process for families and our volunteers. This season we will be opening registration without collecting fees upfront, followed by invoicing a few weeks prior to the opening of the season. This will help us gauge participation and get everything in place, to reserve the appropriate amount of resources (fields, uniforms, equipment, umpires, coaches etc.) needed to support our league.
Invite your friends
If you know a family new to Little League in the area, ages 4-12 (boys) or 4-15 (girls) please forward this to their family, as friends will love playing with & against each other, especially after the 2020 challenges.
COVID Safety Plan
We have a KALL COVID Safety Plan. It will be required for all players, families, coaches, umpires and other volunteers to follow it. If you are unable to follow it, we hope to see you back in the 2022 season. If you have questions about the safety plan, please email us. COVIDquestions@kirklandamerican.com
COVID Release Waiver
To protect everyone involved with Kirkland American Little League from liability, players and parents will be required to sign a KALL COVID Release Waiver. Please read the waiver but the gist is:
If you have questions about the waiver please email us. COVIDquestions@kirklandamerican.com
As you all settle into your winter activities and prepare for the holidays, your Kirkland American Little League Board of Directors has been hard at work preparing for the upcoming Spring Baseball and Softball season. We are an all-volunteer organization and we still have open positions on the Board of Directors. Please contact John Rudolph at President@KirklandAmerican.com for more information on how to join the Board or be a member-at-large on a special project that will need extra hands.
We will also need many volunteers to fill manager and coaching positions, umpires and other roles this season. While there are lots of roles to be filled at all levels, we anticipate particular need in the T-Ball and Coach Pitch age groups. As you register your child, you will be asked to volunteer for a position--please consider giving your time to help continue with tradition that is Little League!
Let’s make our 70th year of Kirkland American Little League season - the best one ever!
Our very best to you and your families during the holiday season,
Your Kirkland American Little League
