Seeing youth sports cannot start practices until Phase 2 and games/tournaments in Phase 3, USA Softball of Massachusetts unfortunately will be cancelling all locally sanctioned tournaments for the month of June. It is our hope that games & tournaments can begin under Phase 3.
USA Softball of Massachusetts is on the youth sports subcommittee of the Outdoor Recreation Advisory Task Force and will be helping to shape what Phase 3 will look like. As we get further information about Phase 2 and 3, we will share it with everyone via social media and on our website at www.usasoftballma.com
Based upon the guidelines the best possible dates that could be met are June 8 for practices only (no games or tournaments) to commence and June 29 for games to begin. There are 3 weeks in between phases and that period is subject to change based upon COVID-19 cases.
We are looking at a way to possibly still hold our state tournaments sometime late summer, stay tuned for that announcement later this week.
Let us look at the announcement yesterday in a positive way. If things go well, we could be on the fields again playing ball in July.
