With news of the increasing spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the WMLL Board of Directors has decided to cancel the Skills Session & used equipment sale scheduled for Sunday, March 15. While the chance of getting sick from coronavirus in Madison is low right now, we believe that cancelling is the safe & smart thing to do.
The cancellation of the Skills Session will have no impact on WMLL’s ability to create balanced teams & competitive leagues. In lieu of Skills Session evaluations, coaches will use 2019 player evaluations & player skill rankings provided by parents during registration as references for league drafts. The Board may consider options for conducting a limited skills evaluation for WMLL’s youngest players at a later date depending on how the coronavirus situation unfolds.
At present, all other preseason events (including league drafts & umpire training) & the 2020 spring/summer season will proceed as scheduled.
We remain excited about the upcoming season & look forward to seeing you all at WMLL’s beautiful ballpark as soon as possible.
