BASEBALL/SOFTBALL CANCELLATION NOTICE 3-31-2020

DPR has cancelled the current baseball/softball program.  We are hopeful that at a later date we will be able to offer a baseball/softball program this summer as soon as it is safe to do so. Refunds are being processed this week. Thank you for your understanding 

DPR Families:

The COVID-19 pandemic is presenting unique challenges to the world community. Although our area counties have no known COVID-19 cases, we have made the decision—with the recommendations of local health authorities—to close our spring soccer program, track program, and baseball/softball camps, egg hunt, and movie in the park currently scheduled to safeguard the health and wellness of our community and decrease the burden on the healthcare system, and protect the most vulnerable in our community.

We have begun issuing refunds, if you registered online you will see a refund, if you registered in our office a check is being issued and mailed to you. We are in uncharted territory while planning for the spread of COVID-19. It is difficult to predict where we will be in two days, much less two weeks from now. With that being said, we are also not renting DPR facilities. We will re-evaluate on April 3, 2020, and release a statement at that time regarding summer Baseball/Softball, Coed Volleyball, and other events. We appreciate your understanding and will continue to monitor the ever-changing situation.

Our decision was made after consultation with local health officials about the need to practice social distancing and to limit gatherings of large groups in order to decrease the risk to our most vulnerable populations as well as reduce the burden on the healthcare system. Our decision aligns with similar actions being taken to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 by our neighboring areas.

We know that you have many questions, and we will do our best to address your concerns. We are working on how to address questions and concerns and will continue to keep you informed. We appreciate your patience and support as we move forward together.

Sincerely,
Jamie Rowe
Park Director
