Spring Season Cancelled due to COVID-19
UpdatedSunday May 17, 2020 byRegistration Questions.
Hello GALL Families,
We hope this message finds you and your family healthy and safe. We are continuing to monitor and adjust to the changes to our lives caused by COVID-19. Through many discussions of protocols necessary to ensure the safety of all our players, coaches and parents, Gilbert American Little League has determined that we cannot continue the spring 2020 season.
With all of the uncertainty due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, GALL is offering a partial refund of $100 from the 2020 spring registration fees. Please keep in mind that there are direct player and operational expenses that have already been incurred from the season. The larger expenses incurred include: screen printing and Little League patch application for all uniforms, team pictures for each player, field/light rentals, opening night, umpire payments, Little League insurance. Gilbert American is adhering to the Little League resumption guidelines and has established the following refund policy:
OPTION #1 (Recommended): Registration fees can be rolled over as a credit towards a future fall or spring season. As this global pandemic was an unfortunate situation that is out of the control of our Board of Directors, we kindly ask that you accept a $100 credit for a future season. **If you have a player aging out of the league and you have other children enrolled, you may use the refund credit towards their registration fees in the future
OPTION #2: Parents/legal guardians can be refunded $100 less the $4 credit card processing fee that SI Play charges Gilbert American for each credit card transaction.
Gilbert American would also like to offer that the league would kindly accept any refunds to be used as a donation to the league. Given the unforeseen circumstances our program has, and continues to be faced with during this pandemic, any donation is greatly appreciated.
If you would like to choose OPTION #1 you do NOT need to do anything. A $100 credit per registered player will be placed on your account.
**If you would like to choose OPTION #2, which is the $100 refund, minus the $4 credit card transaction fee, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your child’s first and last name, NO LATER than May 20th, 2020 and we will begin processing your refund. Once all refund requests have been received and processed, remaining account credits will be applied and available by July 1, 2020.
These most certainly are very tough and confusing times for all of us, and Gilbert American Little League is committed to doing what is best and safest for our community. If you have any questions, please reach out to us. We look forward to seeing you on the baseball field in the fall or next spring, and we really appreciate your continued support and understanding.
Jen Johnson and the GALL Board of Directors
