As you all have seen, closures in the state have begun in relation to the COVID-19 virus. Huguenot Little League operates in conjunction with Chesterfield County. As of now, Chesterfield County has canceled after school activities on Friday; therefore, all HLL events for Friday, 3/13 are canceled. While Chesterfield County has not officially closed schools or school events beyond Friday, our Board of Directors fully expects that Chesterfield will follow our neighboring counties’ closings. When this happens, it will result in HLL Suspension of Play until the County returns to normal operations.
A couple of important points in response to the anticipated decision from Chesterfield County:
We are not planning on canceling the season, just suspending activities
We will continue loading schedules so if you receive notifications of games added, we want you to know that we are building the schedule with an expectation to play
When we do return to play, we will jump right into a regular game schedule
As a father of three HLL players, as a coach on three HLL teams, and as the President of the League, this situation saddens me. But, we must act in a responsible and safe manner.
We will send out an official communication once we have received direction from the County and will continue to communicate updates as we have them.
