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.
