Spring Season Cancelled Due to COVID Pandemic

Given the immediate outlook surrounding the current pandemic, the Horsham Little League Executive Board has decided to cancel the spring Little League season.

We followed the guidance given to us from Little League International, but given the circumstances regarding the large number of cases in Montgomery County and the phasing plan put forth by Gov. Tom Wolf, it's not in the best interests of the children, parents, and volunteers to move forward with a spring season while putting people's health at risk.

This decision did not come easy; we want to be on the field just as much as the children.

Moving forward, we hope to organize a fall season with registration opening in August. Again, this is subject to the diminishing of COVID cases and appropriate approvals and guidance from government officials.

REFUNDS
We are going through the process of issuing refunds for registration. There is, however, a $45 operating fee that will be deducted for each child. The operating fee covers the costs of upgrades made to the facility, grounds, and equipment before the start of the season.

To reduce expenses over the coming months, we've deferred loan payments on our field maintenance equipment and suspended our field treatment services. This is in addition to our ongoing costs such as pest control, fire protection, taxes, and insurance.

We are working with our registration platform to ensure refunds will be credited to the card affiliated with the registration. We anticipate refunds to be going out in early June.

SPONSORS
We value every sponsor that collaborates with Horsham Little League and we will carry all sponsorships over to the 2021 season. In the interim, we will begin weekly rotations on social media to celebrate sponsors and develop other meaningful methods to show our appreciation.

DONATIONS
The impacts of the COVID pandemic on the financial world are significant and Horsham Little League isn't immune. If you are interested in donating your registration cost or in becoming a HLL sponosor, please send an email to [email protected] before May 30.

As always, thank you for your support.
