The objective of Lumberton Little League is to implant firmly in the children of the community the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage and respect for authority, so that they may be well adjusted, stronger and happier children and will grow to be good, decent, healthy and trustworthy citizens. The attainment of exceptional athletic skill or the winning of games is secondary, and the molding of future citizens is of prime importance. To achieve this objective, LLL will provide a supervised program under the Rules and Regulations of Little League Baseball, Incorporated.

Spring Season Update

 

Good Afternoon Baseball Family,

This should serve as the official update of the Lumberton Little League 2020 Spring Season. Any further questions or concerns can be directed to the LLL President - Jacob WIlliford - at jwilliford.lll@gmail.com.

After careful consideration using all the facts provided from our local and state officials as well as our governing body Little League International and information from our our local district, the Lumberton Little League Board of Directors have discussed thoroughly and have approved a vote to CANCEL THE 2020 SPRING SEASON. We as a board have decided in the best interest of the children it is to not expose them to unnessary risk of COVID-19. We also believe this decision is in the best interest of all of the childrens families, loved ones, the city of Lumberton, and surrounding areas. We feel logistically there is little success to help mitigate the spread of the virus as well as the number of safety precautions that would be required will affect the integrity of the game itself leading to a less than satisfactory experience and enjoyment level for the children. 

The Leauge is able to provide partial refunds of $50 to those that request them. This number has been decided based on the non-refundable purchases already made for the season. By issuing refunds we will not have a sizable project budget for 2021 and will not be able to work on many renovation projects. The 2020 season will essitionally be a break-even season financially. No profits but also no losses that will affect the leagues function in the future. Anyone that chooses not to request a refund their portion of registrations will go towards creating a more significant 2021 project budget. No refunds will be issued after June 30th, 2020.

To request a refund you may contact the league president - Jacob WIlliford - at jwilliford.lll@gmail.com. Please state your name in the subject line and add the names of your children requesting a refund in the body of the email. If you paid your registration by card this season I will be able to electronically issue you a refund back to the same card. If you paid by cash or check you must still request a refund by email and we will have set days to issue checks personally at the ballpark after June 1st or you can request we mail you a check but please verify your address in the email.

We plan and hope to have a Full 2020 Fall Season the same as Spring at a highly discounted registration cost. This season would begin mid to late August and run through early October at the latest. Full details and pricing will be available in early June after the Board of Directors meet to discuss Fall Ball. We are also subject to delays and or cancellation depending on a secondary wave of COVID-19 or by order of the state or Little League governing body.

This decision by far has been the toughest and most stressful decision that has been made in my tenure with Lumberton Little League. I am thankful for the board of directors to analyze the facts and put our personal feelings aside to reach the most educated decision possible staying true to the best interest and safety of the children. The LLL board of directors will be in constant contact with you in the coming months as we issue refunds and plan for the Fall Season.

Thank you all,

Jacob Williford - LLL President
