Baseball and Softball May Yet Return To Levelland

Oxy OverviewWhile the COVID19 crisis shut down everything for the spring, Levelland Youth Baseball and Levelland Babe Ruth Fast Pitch Softball may yet get a season in.

Board officials from both boards met with City of Levelland leadership on Tuesday morning and while discussions involved much about how it would work the groups were reminded that the Governor of the State of Texas and those mandates do include health screens, spectator management and scheduling.

While practices in Texas can open on May 31st, games are not allowed until June 15th.

The City of Levelland noted to both groups that there would be minimum number of days to play, two to three per week, due to the city’s requirements to sanitize heavily on off days.

Both boards are working on details of starting the season as the Levelland Youth Baseball Board met in a virtual meeting  on Tuesday evening.

While there is concern about number of players and coaches still wanting to participate, the board agreed to building a tentative schedule to open play on or about June 15th and to wrap up play on or about July 31st.

More details should be released by May 31st as rosters are reassembled and coaches are contacted.

Levelland Babe Ruth Softball is talking about the opportunity for a summer season as well but also is working on details for a fall season.

UIL Releases Summer Strength and Conditioning and Marching Band Practice Guidelines  

UILFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AUSTIN — The University Interscholastic League (UIL) released requirements and guidelines for its member schools to begin limited UIL summer strength and conditioning and marching band practice starting June 8, 2020 as restrictions due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic begin to be lifted across the state of Texas.

All information can be found on the UIL website at the following links:

https://www.uiltexas.org/athletics/covid-19-information

https://www.uiltexas.org/music/covid-19-information

Schools may use discretion when considering whether or not to offer in-person programs, and areas of the state facing COVID-19 related challenges should consult with local health officials to determine what additional restrictions, if any, should be added to these guidelines. Schools deciding to move forward with offering in-person activities are encouraged to do so carefully and with vigilance, ensuring safety requirements outlined in this approach are closely adhered to in order to mitigate risk.

The information provided and dates are subject to change based on COVID-19 related information. UIL will continue to work with state officials and monitor CDC and other federal guidance to determine any potential modifications to these guidelines.

“We are cautiously optimistic about beginning summer strength and conditioning programs and marching band practices that safely allow students to get back to working with their coaches and directors in preparation for the 2020-2021 school year,” said UIL Executive Director Dr. Charles Breithaupt. “While we are eager to resume UIL activities, we must do so carefully, deliberately and with an understanding that major adjustments are needed to ensure safety. The requirements outline an approach designed to help schools mitigate risk while ensuring students are physically prepared to return to activities in the Fall, should state and federal guidelines allow.”

This is an evolving situation. Please continue to check the UIL website and social media accounts for further updates.
