League Update – May 9, 2020

Hello Parents!

Unfortunately, life throws us curve balls sometime, and as resilient human beings do…we adjust.  As we work though this time I ask for two things from you.  I ask that you extend Grace and demonstrate Flexibility.

On May 1, 2020 Indiana Governor Holcomb announced his plans for reopening Indiana communities and the local economy.  The following pages detail what our plans look like in accordance with state guidance.  Our purpose is to allow our families to begin practicing and playing in a safe way.  The details attached are subject to change depending on what the coming weeks bring.  The health and safety of our players and families is a priority.  We must take precautions and we must take care of each other as we work through this time.

Your coaches will definitely stay in contact with you during this time and let you know of any updates.

I appreciate you.

Adam

Remember: Grace and Flexibility
