HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - Hasbrouck Heights Little League notified its parents about its ongoing plans to hold a 2020 season in light of the COVID-19 health crisis.
Taking guidance from Little League International, the league will "suspend/delay their Little League seasons through no earlier than Monday, May 11." Opening day was originally scheduled for Saturday, April 4. HHLL as well as other youth sports leagues postponed or canceled many events this spring.
Below is the letter from the Hasbrouck Heights Little League, provided by Neil Peterson, president:
Good evening HHLL family:
Obviously the current situation we are all experiencing, is unprecedented; but as promised, we will continue to keep you up to date on current events as it relates to our league.
We will be creating a Task Force to deal with ongoing matters as it relates to HHLL. We feel this is a necessary step as the current recommendation of the number of people "gathering," is exceeded by the total number of HHLL Board Members. Our Task Force will consist of 4 to 5 Board Members who will be available to meet quickly and come up with a plan for the league and our participants. Our full Board will continue to be fully involved in our day to day planning and preparation for the start of the season.
The idea behind this is first, to ensure the league participants that we are actively working on what this season may bring, and second, to be able to quickly adapt to the ever changing environment and regulations, and disseminate information as quickly as possible. If / when the season begins, we want to be able to move quickly based on Little League International's recommendation.
We will publish another HHLL Newsletter in the near future with additional updates. All General Meetings are cancelled until further notice.
We hope you, your families, friends and loved ones stay safe, and that our town and league come through this stronger and better.
