What is Summer 2020 Teenage all about?

  • Based on AHS and Alberta Little League Guidelines, Fish Creek Little League will be able to off a Teenage Interlock House League Program.  In following these guidelines, our games will be played within a cohort system.
  • For more details on Interlock, please CLICK HERE.

 

Details on Cohorts:

  • The 50-person cohort rules applies to players AND coaches within the group.
  • Players and coaches must remain part of the same cohort for the entire season and may not be part of multiple cohorts.  This means that if a coach wants to coach multiple teams (as many due) they may only pick one to be their cohort where they can break the physical distancing rule (without a mask).
  • If a Division has more than 50 players and coaches, they will need to be divided in groups of no more than 50 and only play against teams/players from their own group.
  • Physical distancing within a cohort will not need to be maintained during game play (essentially, they will be able to play games as they normally would).
  • Physical distancing will need to be maintained when note playing (i.e in dugouts/on benches).
  • Separation from spectators and good hygiene practices will be in effect.

 

Details on League Play and Team Formation?

  • This Division will follow the official 2020 Little League Baseball Rules and Regulations.
  • There may be some modified rules (such as no leading off and no balks) however nothing has been finalized or made official as of yet.
  • There will not be an evaluation process for this summer season.
  • Due to the time restraint, teams will be formed utilizing league knowledge (Coach, Director and VP from the previous year) and last years evaluation numbers.
  • **Team sizes and number of teams in each cohort are subject to change based on registration numbers, City, Provincial and AHS Guidelines.**
  • We are very fortunate to be offering this Summer Baseball Program.  We sincerely appreciate your understanding and support with the program we will have.
