2020 Current Season Information

2020 ILL Baseball and Softball Spring League - Cancelled

Hello Issaquah Little League Members,

We hope this update finds you safe and healthy during this difficult period. The ILL Board has met several times this month and communicated with other little league programs in our district to determine how to salvage the 2020 Spring League. Unfortunately, it is with great sadness to report we have decided to Cancel our 2020 Spring Baseball and Softball Leagues in their entirety. As previously communicated, we had targeted a return-to-play date in May prior to the Governor's update last week. However, based on the State's proposed timing (Phase 3) on return-to-play for youth sports in addition to other requirements needed to put our kids safely on the field and ensure safety of the community, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Spring League. This decision was not taken lightly, and we are committed to ensuring that our league comes back stronger than ever for the 2021 Spring League.

As we move forward, the ILL Board is evaluating the possibility of a Fun Summer League offering for both Baseball and Softball during July, if public health guidelines and restrictions allow. Registration and details on a potential Summer League will follow in June.

As a result of the cancellation, ILL will issue a refund to all members for their spring registration cost minus a $10/ registered participant fee. This Fee only covers a small portion and not all our 2019-20 expenses. These sunk costs include items such as insurance, league management / website systems, league owned field costs, evaluations, utilities, and other incidental league requirements. We will not be charging members for any uniform expenses. If you as Coach or Player have received equipment or uniforms, we need to ensure all Uniforms and Equipment are returned. We are planning to use these uniforms during the 2021 season.

Refunds: Starting May 26th, refunds will be automatically issued to all members back to the credit card used originally in your player registration. Thank you for your patients, as this is a manual procedure that process refunds one at a time.

Donations: Members do have the option to donate the registration fees back to the league, which would be considered a tax-deductible donation. PLEASE respond back to registration@issaquahlittleleague.org by Friday, May 22nd - if you would like to donate your fees back to the league. Remember that donations may become match eligible for participating companies. Tax receipts are available upon request. Please note time that due to COVID-19 delays and non-essential business closures, refunds may take up to 22-28 days to appear on account statements for your payers. A refund notification will be sent via email.

IF YOU ARE NOT DONATING YOUR FEES BACK TO ILL, THERE IS NO NEED TO CONTACT US. YOUR REFUND WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY ISSUED.

In the meantime, we truly hope everyone continues to practice and play baseball and softball on their own in preparation for a possible Summer League and the 2021 Little League Season. On behalf of the entire ILL Board, we wish you a safe and healthy Spring. We look forward to seeing you back on the field soon!

Sincerely,

Brian A. Mayer
