2020 Season Update

Hello ONLL Families,

First, I would like to thank all of you for your patience and support during these troubling times. This has been a whirlwind the last few months for all of us.

It is with great sadness that I am drafting this letter to all parents to inform you that Oceanside National Little League will be cancelling the Fall baseball season for 2020.  An extreme amount of thought and emotion has preceded the Board of Directors making this decision. In light of the current state, county and local guidelines, restrictions and directives still in place, we have concluded  that it is in the best interest, health and safety of our League, its players and our families to not move forward with ONLL fall baseball. This decision was partly based on the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) making the decision to shut down ALL high school athletics until January 2021.  Other restrictions and requirements would have also made proceeding with a Fall season impractical, if not impossible.

Even though the season was halted early on, the season was in fact underway, and there were a number of substantial expenses that the League incurred and unfortunately cannot recover. Because of these non-refundable expenses already incurred, the Board has voted to return a prorated portion of 30% of the registration fee, plus the $40 raffle fundraiser. Every single dollar the League collected for the 2020 Spring season will be included in the prorated refunds. Each family will have the option to elect either to receive the prorated refund, or alternatively, to donate the 2020 registration fees/raffle fees to the League to be used for future general operating and other ordinary expenses that will be incurred in the future.

Below is a link to a form to let us know if you would like to receive a refund check or donate your refund to the League. Please respond to the form by August 15 so we can complete the refunds, which will be issued during the month of August. Checks will be mailed directly to the address that you include on the form. Please keep in mind that your 30% prorated refund will depend on what you actually paid for registration, which may vary from player to player (i.e sibling discounts, early bird discounts, etc.). We’ve included below a financial breakdown of money that the League collected for 2020 spring baseball season. In addition, you will see a breakdown of those expenses that the League cannot recoup due to the season already underway when the COVID-19 shelter in place order was implemented.  

For those that still have an interest in playing fall ball, there are currently a few options for your player to potentially play fall ball.  Little Leagues that have their own fields are still hoping to resume at some point this fall. 

Here are the Leagues in district 70 that may still be offering Fall Ball:

Oceanside Valley Little League                       Oceanside American Little League                 Rancho Buena Vista Little League   

Vista American Little League                          Vista National Little League

Despite these current challenges, we are looking ahead to the 2021 Season, and our Board is confident that the League and each of its valued players will come back stronger and more enthusiastic than ever. 

Thank you for your understanding and continued support for Little League Baseball in our community.

Bob McDermott, ONLL President
