COVID-19 Protocols

UPDATED 5/19/21

Raleigh Hills Little League is committed to protecting the safety of our players, families, and community.

Our volunteer board of directors and coaches are working continuously to incorporate local, state, and federal guidelines into our plans for safe baseball play.

Practices and games will be conducted with OHA guidelines and THPRD requirements in mind.

Current THPRD attendance guidelines:
                     • Each player will be allowed to have two (2) spectators
                     • The home team must provide a COVID monitor to ensure compliance with all distancing requirements, including at entrances, exits, and restrooms
                     • Spectators must be in a designated area with separate entrances, exits and stay at least six (6) feet apart (Field Maps)
                     Spectators must wear face-coverings over their nose and mouth at all times
                     • Spectators must use a separate restroom facility from those used by athletes and coaches
                     • Each portable toilet/restroom will be signed for use by either athletes or attendees (spectators)

Participants, coaches, umpires and spectators will be expected to wear masks while in the dugouts for games, but masks are not required while in the field of play.

Each team is required to establish an adult volunteer at each game and practice to monitor that all adults and  participants are maintaining proper mask wearing.

Parents and spectators are expected to maintain a 6 foot social distance from others not in their household. No equipment will be shared. Each player will be expected to have their own glove, bat and helmet.

For AA, AAA, and Majors, there will be 2 sets of catcher’s equipment per each team. If more than 2 catchers are anticipated to play on a given day, equipment will need to be wiped down/sterilized between users.  For A and T-ball catchers are not mandatory.

Participants need to disclose if they become ill with known symptoms of Covid-19, which include:

o Fever or Chills (temperature > 100.7 degrees F)

o Cough

o Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

o Fatigue

o Muscle or body aches

o Headache

o Loss of taste or smell

o Sore throat

o Congestion or runny nose

o Nausea or vomiting

o Diarrhea - If a participant is sick with any illness, then the participant is to stay home.

Temperature checks should be done at home before practices and games to ensure that participants are healthy to attend.

o Participants should not have a temperature > 100.7 degrees F

Sunflower seeds and gum will be prohibited on the grounds in an effort to lessen the contact of hands to mouth.

No food will be allowed in the dugouts, only drinks. No sharing of drinks, each player is required to provide their own.

We will update these guidelines as regulations change. We are excited for a safe and fun season, thank you for participating!
