     *NEW RULE AS OF SPRING 2016 SEASON*
~FACE MASK RULE~



After careful reconsideration, the Board has decided to maintain its implementation of the mandatory facemask rule. This rule will apply to every girl in all divisions during ALL practices and ALL games.  The safety of our players is of the utmost concern to us. While we understand that each parent signed a waiver of liability, we have seen a rise each year in the number of girls being injured by a ball to the face.

IN ADDITION, ALL BATTING HELMETS MUST HAVE A FACE MASK!


In an effort to help guide you, below are a few internet sites where you can purchase a facemask for cheaper than sporting goods stores such as Dick's. If you wish to shop in-person, we recommend Play It Again Sports, Walmart, and/or Target.

Boombah: (8 color choices) $14.99 + shipping

Direct Sports: (6 color choices) $21.99 + shipping

Epic Sports: (5 color choices) $16.39 + shipping

This rule will be strictly enforced and will also be required during your practices on the fields.  All board members and umpires are aware of the rule and failure to comply will result in the player losing out on practice and/or game time. Multiple offenses by the same team will be noted and taken into consideration.

This rule took effect Monday, April 4, 2016
