******BREAKING NEWS******

 The league has been informed that a coach in the Intermediate division has tested positive for COVID-19.

The league has been informed that a parents in the Rookie 7, Minor 9, intermediate, and the JR/SR division has tested positive all families are on quarantine until cleared by medical professional.
We also have been informed the following tested positive but they had no exposure at Katy American Fields due to not attending any games/practices and all family must have medical clearance prior to returning: 2 players (brothers) in rookie 6, rookie 7 player, and a minor 8 sibling.
 
If a team has had a parent test positive that team will be notified by the coach and checked to see if they had any contact.
 
For the mask rule: If you are sitting down watching the game and you are 6 feet away from all other households (which everybody should be but some are not) you do not have to wear the mask but must have it when walking around at the fields, bathroom, concessions, and entering or exiting the fields.
 
Please let this be a RED FLAG and make sure your team is following protocol. EVERY HOUSEHOLD/FAMILY MUST REMAIN AT LEAST 6 FEET SOCIAL DISTANCE AT ALL TIMES.
 
We absolutely CANNOT have a full team in the dugout.  The dugout should only be used for 3-4 batters preparing to bat.  The spots are marked where the waiting batters can sit or stand.
 
The rest of the batting line up has to be placed outside the fence line at the posts (preferably in batting order).  There are boxes where the batters can stand.
DO NOT LINE YOUR BATTERS UP BEHIND THE DUGOUT

NO HANDSHAKES OR FIST/ELBOW BUMPS AT THE END OF GAMES!!!!!
 
If you see another team abusing these rules please let a board member know.  If you cannot find a board member, notify the concession stand and they will find us.  *A board member will be monitoring the fields/games nightly.  
 
Teams or individuals will be warned and could be asked to exit the fields if they do not cooperate.
 
The league is also asking that only members of your immediate household attend games.  This is to reduce overcrowding and to also protect any senior citizen members of your family.
 
We want to make our park a safe environment so we can continue to provide a fun season for the players.
Please do your part by following these rules and we can all make it a safer place.

 RE:  Coronavirus /Katy American Little League

COVID-19 RULES: Look under forms and documents. Then click Summer Season Game Guidelines.

Players, Coaches, Volunteers, and Parents,

We will have an Opening day modified from our "normal" opening days. Once we figure out opening day we will let everyone know.

The league’s main concern is the safety of our players, parents, coaches, and volunteers. We as a community will have to follow state guidelines. These will be posted soon. We understand that some of the guidelines will not be liked, but we will need everybodies help and participation in following the rules. Sooner or later we will be able to go back to our normal. This is a situation that nobody has ever seen before. 

Hand washing: We have hand sanitizer machines we will be setting up in the bathrooms. We will also have at the concession stand once the it is open. We will also put bars of soap in the bathroom even though we know they will disappear. We strongly encourage parents to also bring their own for players on the field.

Once games do start and for the remainder of the Spring season, we are issuing a no contact/no handshake policy. This will be observed at each level of the organization until further notice. This includes all physical contact and extends to customary game-related activities such as pre-game coach’s handshakes, umpire-coach introductions, and post-game handshakes between members of opposing teams. Instead, umpires, players, and coaches should use verbal queues, such as saying "good game" without shaking hands, high-fiving, or fist-bumping. ----------Thank you KALL Board.

If you are unable to play please contact your coach and Bryan Sills at 713-480-7456. At this time we are offering a 25% credit for either Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 to any player not able to play in the delayed Spring 2020 (summer now) league, The amount of the credit will be re-evaluated after this season to see if the league can offer players more of a refund. We will not be able to issue any refunds for the Spring 2020 Season.

Information about why 25% credit?

First we will re-evaluate the credit amount at the end of this season. If we see that we are able to offer more of a credit we will.

Most of the money for baseball was spent upfront on uniforms, lights, Charter and Insurance fees, equipment, baseballs, opening day, field maintenance, scholarships, dirt, chalk, turfice, field equipment maintenance, gas, etc. The registration fee is a portion of the cost to run the season. The sponsorship and opening day also is included in the cost of running the season which we didn't receive opening day fees and only about 10% of the sponsorship. We also lost the money that KALL spent on opening day as we did not receive a refund. We will be looking at this season once we have the teams set to see how many games we will be able to play and if we will be able to have an end of the season tournament or not. As for the teams we will be adding some players to fill in the teams or combining teams. But as of right now we are all working on this. Most little leagues in the area have cancelled due to financial and the protocols that they would have to follow and did not offer any refund.  Here is a message from LL District 15 facebook page.

Please realize that each league has spent much of its registration fee on Spring Season startup cost. Most money was spent on field preparation (dirt, clay, bases, chalk, etc), concession supplies (food, drinks, certifications, ice, etc), equipment (uniforms, caps, baseballs/softballs, catchers equipment, helmets, bat(s)), Opening Day fees (peace officer escorts, permits, etc). Also, Insurance and Charter Fees must be paid prior to the beginning of each season. Money is recouped throughout the season from concession stand sales. If each league were to refund 100% of the registration fee, the league would have a deficit and possibly fold.
