Important Baseball Soccer and Cheerleading Update

To our Mineola Athletic Association family,

I hope this email finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy.

As you are aware, a little over a month ago and under the direction of the Little League International Organization, we suspended all activities until May 11. In addition, we were also directed to follow the regulations set forth by the state and local governments which currently states May 15th as the end date. While the situation does seem to be improving, it’s more than likely that the date of NYS “PAUSE” will be extended beyond that date, at least for the downstate portion of New York. Due to this situation and the many other uncertainties, the Board has decided to cancel the Spring season. It is obviously not a decision anyone wanted to make but we are living in unprecedented times. We are not only board members but parents and we want nothing more than the safest environment for our children. This does not mean we will not play baseball this summer. If we are given the go ahead to get out on the field, I assure you we will be out there as soon as it is safe to do so.

We are also well aware of the tremendous economic impact this has had on our community, not only to the families but to the many businesses that have been so supportive towards our Association through the years. Therefore, we will give a full refund of all monies paid towards this Spring’s registration. If we do end up playing baseball or softball this summer, we anticipate it will be at a nominal fee and it will be a simple and quick registration to get the kids back on the field and playing as soon as possible. The refund will be processed through the same card used in the registration and should be issued in the next couple of days. We will also be reaching out to all of our generous sponsors and advising them and refunding their money if requested as well.

I’d like to take a quick moment to personally thank all of our parents, coaches and volunteers who have dedicated countless hours of their time trying to get this season together. We will be back playing ball as soon as we can.

If there are any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you and be safe,

Andrew Murray
