Cancellation of the Spring Season

Dear Sebastopol Little League community,

It is with great consideration and regret that Sebastopol Little League has decided to cancel our spring season. Due to our county's Shelter-In-Place order we simply cannot safely proceed with baseball activities at this time.

As you probably know, we are a volunteer run non-profit 501c3 organization and operate on a limited budget to provide the opportunity to play baseball in our community. As such, we rely on sponsorships, donations, and registration fees to help fund those activities. Unfortunately, due to the timing of the COVID-19 virus and Shelter-in-Place order we received 68% less than our budgeted sponsorship and donation amounts that were expected for this season. As well, we have expenses (field maintenance, charter fees, insurance, equipment) that have already occurred, and others still to come. This has put us in a budget shortfall and forced us to dig into our savings to make up for most of the difference and to enable us to grant league-wide refunds. Unfortunately, due to this situation we cannot refund 100% of the registration fees without putting our organization in a financial position that would place future activities at risk.  

We will be preparing league wide refunds of 75% of registration fees and will be processing and mailing these refund checks on or around June 15. We will be mailing your refund to the address that we have in your registration account. If you have moved or have a different address, we need that information ASAP.

We are also asking that you consider making a donation of your registration fees to Sebastopol Little League. Your registration fee would be 100% tax deductible. If you are in a position that you can afford to, and would like to donate your registration fee, please email us at [email protected]sonic.net. We will send a thank you letter that serves as a receipt for tax purposes.

In the event that modifications to our county orders are such that our communities can resume youth sporting activities, we will at that time address the possibility of a brief season, or the early start of Sebastopol Little League Fall Ball.

Thank you,

Sebastopol Little League Board of Directors
