2020 Spring Update

Follow additional updates on our COVID-19 page

TJYBB Community,

We are very happy to announce that it appears that we WILL be able to offer a Spring season this year for the community!  We thank you for your patience thus far, and will continue to ask for that as we plan through these unprecedented times.

There will be a heavy focus on safety for all members of the community which will require teamwork from kids, coaches, parents and spectators to abide by regulations and guidelines that will be in place in conjunction with the local borough, recreation board and government health recommendations.  When finalized, these guidelines will be distributed to all families in the form of a responsibility waiver that we will asked to be reviewed and returned to ensure that we are all working together.

Our Spring season will now be on the following schedule

  • June 5th - County enters GREEN status allowing use of fields under safety guidelines
  • June 8th to June 26th - Team practices and scrimmage games (trial run under new guidelines)
  • June 28th to August 8th - Regular season games
    • We will also attempt to schedule a special event day for our 12 year old Homerun Derby due to the cancellation of Jefferson Hills Community Day sometime within the season

We understand that these dates are well beyond our normal season and some families will choose to not participate.  **If you fall into this category, we require you to reply back to the board no later than Tuesday, June 2nd if you choose to cancel your registration for the Spring season. We will keep a credited registration in our system that you can apply for your next season, unless alternate options are needed on a per family basis. You can email us at [email protected] or simply reply to this email.**  If we do not hear from you, we will keep your registration active and include your child in the system for this Spring.

Due to the likely change in registration status for some families, this will require us to restart the season in our system, including team rosters.  We will do our best to keep the current teams and rosters intact, however is most cases there will be changes to ensure proper team and roster balance at each division.

Lastly, as we've said in the past, all of the members of the TJYBB Board, division commissioners and team coaches are volunteers and allocate their personal schedules to ensure the kids in our community have a fun, safe experience, so we ask for your patience and understanding during this process.  We are always very hard pressed to find willing helpers so we ask that if you have not yet stepped up to help, that you use this time as a way to reconsider.  We will be looking for additional help throughout the season to ensure the kids, especially the younger ages, are following the safety guidelines for return to play.

Thanks again,

TJYBB Board
