Slo-Pitch Covid Update

Updated February 18, 2021
All slo-pitch information for league and tournament is dependent on the Covid situation and how it develops in the early spring and the government and city regulations that will be in place.
We can only assume that some sort of slo-pitch play will allowed but probably under strict Covid guidelines similar to the guidelines in place for 2020 August to October. All information including schedules and timelines are a best-case scenario and may be adjusted as required.
All we can do is hope and plan and then go to plan B (and maybe plan C, etc.).
RSPA Slo-Pitch League is planning full league play with Coed and Mens Masters 50+ Rec divisions and a full tournament schedule. Covid guidelines will be in place for:
RSPA League Meetings; RSPA Open Practices and RSPA Tournaments.
The first RSPA meeting in April will be a virtual meeting only with NO in person meeting. - RSPA League Meetings
The final RSPA meeting in May will have full Covid protocols in place to pick up info, balls, rulebook, scorebook, etc.
The RSPA tournament is May will PROBABLY be under Covid restrictions so will PROBABLY be a one-day Saturday tournament.
June and the rest of the summer tournaments will depend on what the Covid restrictions are at the time.
