Little League Coronavirus 19 Update

Little League understands that many of our districts, leagues, volunteers, parents, and players want to get back to the Little League® field, and so do we, but our primary focus is on the safety and well-being of all of our members around the world. Little League International will continue to monitor the progression of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) outbreak both in the United States and around the world and provide updates to its local leagues and districts. However, especially as certain states and municipalities begin their phased approaches to reopening, it is highly encouraged that each league and district adheres to the guidelines set forth by their respective state and local government and health officials in terms of public gatherings and sporting events when determining when it is safe to return to normal activities after May 11. In Virginia, this date is currently set as June 10th and leagues should contact their local health authority for guidance prior to resuming any Little League activities. The District Staff is working with the State Association and the local leagues and making plans to return to the field and start/resume play when it is safe and authorized to do so. We anticipate additional guidance from Little League International in the coming weeks. Please visit the Little League International website for additional information.
