Practice Plan as of 3-16-21
Hello San Pedro Girls Softball Parents,
Hope this finds everyone safe and healthy. We would like to update you where we currently stand as it relates to the Spring 2021 Softball Season.
Our Board of Directors continues to move forward with overall strategy to a “normal” Spring season.
At this time our field (Harbor Pistol Range) are still closed per the Navy. We will be renting the Fields at Bogdanovich Park to host pods/practices. We will continue making an effort to get our fields reopened.
Some of us have been attending Zoom meetings with USAS/ASA Softball. USA/ASA Softball would like to start the season mid-April. Of course, that will depend on LA City/County restrictions being lifted. We continue to see positive trends in the right direction of reaching competitive play. We do not know a date yet or when it will be, but we do know now we are going the right direction towards reaching the goal of per CovidActNow metric (https://covidactnow.org/us/california-ca.county/losangeles county/s=1598540) and per California Department of Health reopening plan for Youth and Recreation Sports (https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs.CDC/DCDC/pages/covid-19/outdoor-indoor-recretional sports.aspx).
With that being said, SPGSA would like to start March with practice/conditioning. We will have the girls in pods/cohorts with a coach per the documented “Reopening and Safety Guidelines”. Therefore, once we get the green light for competitive play by the LA County Department of Health (who is providing the guidance on Return to Play) we will be ready.
At this time, we will be charging $75 per child. The fee will be to cover the insurance, background check, T-shirts, field fees, and equipment. The fees will also go towards the actual registration fee, in other words, when we get to be back at our fields (Harbor Pistol Range) we will have another fee which will cover the remaining expenses (umpires, restroom, etc.) of the league. The registration will close March 1. If you have already registered thanks you, if not please do so.
SPGSA Board of Directors

We will not be collecting any registration fees at this time. League fees are normally collected at registration to cover the cost of equipment, umpires, team jerseys, USA Softball registration fees, and insurance. However, due to COVID-19 and the uncertainty of what Spring Ball may look like in 2021, we are not going to collect any fees until the government gives us clearance to use our fields and we have a clearer picture of what our spring season will involve. Once things are approved by all governing bodies (USA Softball, LA City, and our state) we will offer those who have submitted a registration for Spring Ball options and any associated fees. We thank you for your patience during this uncertain time.
For any questions, please contact Teri Sardisco at email@example.com
