An Update from USA Softball of Michigan on COVID-19 March 20, 2020
Good day to everyone. I have been contemplating how and when to communicate with all of you during these unprecedented times. We are all challenged, scared, and concerned with any number of personal and professional issues. What I have learned over these past several days is that family is so important, be it your personal family as well as your professional family. It is with that spirit that I am communicating to you, today. USA Softball of Michigan is a tight-knit and strong family, in my opinion. Someway, somehow...we will get through this. For right now, we have decisions that need to be made and/or considered.
The Executive Committee met yesterday, via conference call, to review a variety of issues and scenarios for the present and for the short and long-term future. Part of the decision-making process involves working with and getting information from a variety of partners and resources. They include entities such the NCAA, the MHSAA, and the USA Softball national office. More importantly, it's the information we all receive from the Governor's office and the CDC that we need to be most aware of. As of yesterday, we have the following cancellations/arrangements...
The Executive Committee will also make a decision (with input from directors and local leaders) by mid-April (or sooner) on the following options...
The Executive Committee made a decision on the issue of late fees and deadlines with more specific details forthcoming, if necessary...
This is where we are at. We will take on any challenge that comes up and do the best we can to deal with it. We will also work hard to make sure we communicate with you on a regular basis so as to keep you in the loop on the latest updates and decisions that have to be made. we will also be communicating with local league directors, teams, and managers with more sport-specific information for them to be aware of. Look for additional e-mails, Facebook posts, and maybe even some future podcasts to help us connect with our USA family and our customers. Please contact us if you have any questions, concerns, and/or anything else you feel the need to share. We will get through this!
Good morning to our USA Softball of Michigan members. We hope that everyone is handling this situation to the best of your ability and staying healthy.
The following is our policy regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) as of now, and will be reviewed often in the coming days, and possibly weeks. Our main goal is for everyone to stay healthy.
