COVID-19: 2020 BNLL Season cancelled

Parents, Coaches, Players, Sponsors, and Volunteers:

Thank you for your patience, flexibility, and support as the Boone National Little League Board waded through murky waters of COVID-19. We were hoping to be able to delay the season start date and offer some form of a "normal" season. Unfortunately, with the guidance from Little League International and the Governor's office we will be unable to hold a traditional 2020 season.

This is unchartered territory for all of us. The BNLL Board wants to be open and transparent on the impact registration refunds will have on BNLL moving forward. As a non-profit, BNLL’s expenses equal the total amount of revenue we generate from our participants and sponsors/donors, with each dollar received being reinvested into our program and covering park maintenance that must continue regardless of cancellation. Like many other businesses and organizations, this unexpected situation will impact us drastically. 

Our Ask:
If you are in a position financially to donate your registration to Boone National Little League we will send you the appropriate tax documentation. Your donation will go along way to minimizing the financial damage the pandemic has caused on our program and what the future holds for our community.

Refunds:
We will honor all registration refund requests minus $5.00 (due to the fee's of Sports Connect).
To receive a refund please email [email protected] with the following information.
1. Player name
2. Parent/guardian whom paid
3. Address to send refund check.

While there is not going to be a traditional Little League season this year, We will try to hold some fun events at the ballpark. Boone National Little League has a historic connection with this community and will do whatever possible to get our youth onto the ball field once regulation allows.  We also ask that, if possible, you support the numerous businesses that continue to support BNLL.  Those businesses can be found on our  website as well.  They are another source of revenue for BNLL and we would like to support them as much as possible.  Finally, please consider joining the Little League Board.  We are always looking for volunteers to assist in the planning of upcoming seasons.  If you feel you have ideas and input that would better the experience for the players of BNLL, send an e-mail to [email protected]  and a current board member will reach out to you.  

We hope you respect and understand the difficulty we had reaching this decision. We look forward to “all that once was good and it WILL be again. People will come Ray. People will most definitely come”. (Field of Dreams)

Sincerely,

Boone National Little League Board of Directors
