Eden Prairie Fastpitch and Coronavirus

Eden Prairie Fastpitch and Coronavirus

As we continue making plans for the players of our 10U and 12U age groups to play a summer softball season, it is necessary for us to collect an Eden Prairie Fastpitch COVID-19 Liability Waiver and Indemnity Agreement from each player. This is mandatory and is not subject to negotiation. Without this form on file, a player will not be permitted to participate in practices, games or any other organized activity with Eden Prairie Fastpitch. 

Download this form here, use Adobe Acrobat Reader to fill it out and sign it, and send it to the Head Coach of your team as an attachment. 

As we near Phase 2 of the "Stay Safe MN" plan starting June 1, Eden Prairie Fastpitch Association is finalizing plans for how the 2020 summer softball season will be managed to maximize safety and allow our players to participate in an already shortened softball season. 

Recently, the EP Fastpitch Board has voted to cancel the 8U softball season, as the inability to have parent helpers at practice and restrictions for social distancing make it extremely difficult to manage for our youngest players. We hope to participate in an extended fall-ball program to continue player development and enjoyment of the sport.

 

Softball Practices under COVID-19/StaySafe (draft)

Safety will continue to be our leading thought as we progress towards our goal of softball skill development. We are involved in a situation that is unlike any we've encountered before; many things are fluid and are subject to change at a moment's notice when conditions of safety changes. 

As it currently stands, this is what our schedule looks like:

  • Practices begin after June 1. Quantity of practices are at the Head Coach discretion. 
  • Games could start the week of June 18
    • ​10U plays a 2-game regular season:
      • TUE, June 16
      • TUE June 23
    • 12U plays a 4-game result season
      • MON, June 15
      • WED, June 17
      • MON, June 22
      • WED, June 24
  • MN Softball State Qualifiers (10U/12U):
    • June 26-28
  • MN Softball 12U State Tournament 
    • July 11-12
  • MN Softball 10U State Tournament
    • July 18-19

Practices:

  • Players without a signed Liability Waiver (here) will not be allowed to participate in any organized EP Fastpitch activities- practices or games. 
  • Check your daughter's temperature prior to leaving home for practice; please keep any child home if they have a temperature over 100*F. And please, if your child doesn't feel 100%, please keep her home. 
  • Players will line place their gear 6' apart from the next player, on the field along the fences (both 1B and 3B sides). No one uses the dugout.
  • No players to share any equipment.
  • Players will be separated by "pods" and shared equipment will be limited to each "pod"- softballs, tees, any other training equipment. Attendance will be tracked to document exposure risk.
  • NO sunflower seeds or gum. 
  • Players are allowed to wear masks during practice (optional); players are advised to wear masks to/from the fields. No physical contact is allowed between the players and other players (high fives, hugs, fist bumps, etc) and between players and coaches.
  • Parents nor spectator attendance is allowed at practices. 

 

This may be what games will look like; we'll know more soon:
