2020 Baseball and Softball Schedules and Guidelines

Dear 2020 Assumption Baseball and Softball Parents,

We are very happy to provide a shortened summer sports season at Assumption.  We are asking our parents for understanding and some help along the way.  All practice and game guidelines are posted on our school website.  We need to have great cooperation and 100% compliance with all guidelines to make this a safer environment for our players, coaches and families.

Our coaches are instructed to take attendance daily and ask each player if they had their temperature taken.  Players must be dropped off and parents must leave or remain in their vehicles during practice.  No one other than players, coaches and school officials are allowed at practices.  If any player has been tested positive or exposed to COVID-19, please contact the Assumption Administration immediately.

Players must bring their own water/beverage, food and hand sanitizer and should not share with others.  When possible, please have players use their own equipment and clean this equipment daily.  Players are expected to maintain social distancing at practices and whenever possible.  Players should wash hands and shower at home following all practices and games.

Transportation – At the varsity level, our players and coaches will meet at a specified time for away games that are in Iowa Quad Cities. (All Davenport, Bettendorf, Pleasant Valley and North Scott).  For all games that are outside the immediate area, Assumption High School will provide transportation to and from the games, however we strongly encourage players going home with their parents if possible.  Please notify the coaches before leaving with your player.  Players riding our buses will sit one person to a seat and are encouraged to wear a mask while on the bus.  Parents may transport their player as long as this is communicated to the coaches prior to leaving.  Buses will not stop to eat on any trips.

All MAC schools other than Assumption will be limiting game attendance at their facilities to three (3) “Gate Passes” per player.  Anyone attending games at all other MAC schools must have a “Gate Pass” to purchase admission to the games.  These “Gate Passes” will be given to each player prior to the games.  We are not planning to limit our attendance at home games as long as social distancing can be maintained.

Please review all guidelines and check for new information often.  Good communication is a must in the situation we are facing.  Please continually remind your players of the guidelines and be teaching them to be self-aware of their own behavior, listen to their coaches and follow directions.  Good luck to all and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.  Let’s have a Great summer and Let’s Go Knights!

Yours in the Assumption Spirit,

Wade King

2020 Assumption Baseball & Softball Practice Guidelines

We have been given permission to begin baseball and softball. We need to follow the guidance that has been provided to us, and pay attention to the details of our day-to-day activities and practice. To promote Safety, we ask that student-athletes, parents, and coaches pay close attention to personal health. If you don’t feel well, don’t attend practices or games. Attendance will be excused if the player or parent texts or emails the coach to inform them that the player doesn’t feel well or a family member is showing symptoms.

Before your first practice.

Make sure all documents are on file with the athletic office.

Physicals are waived until July 25

Head-up Concussion form

Before you arrive at the ballpark, ask yourself these general health questions:

Have you had a fever or taken medicine in the last 24 hours to reduce a fever?

Are you feeling ill?

Have you developed a cough in the last 24 hours?

Have you had any other symptoms of illness?

Stay home if you have any of these symptoms or if you  have a fever

Make sure your hands have been washed before coming to the ballpark.

Take your temperature before arriving at the ballpark.

Bring your own hand sanitizer with you to practice & games.

C. Arrival at the ballpark

Coaches will take attendance for all players attending the practice that day.  All records of attendance will be kept for the entire season.

Whenever possible players and coaches are asked to make an effort to maintain social distance.  While we understand that this may not always be possible, but please be mindful of these recommendations throughout practice and play.  

D. Practice

Drills should be set up by coaches to minimize large groups and provide social distancing.

Players are encouraged to use their own helmets if NOCSAE approved.

All shared gear should be sanitized before it is passed between teammates.

Students are encouraged to keep hand sanitizer with them and use frequently.

Measures are in place for sanitation of school-owned equipment and facilities.   

In an effort to maintain optimal hygiene all participants are asked to refrain from spiting (including sunflower shells).
