First, we understand that many families in our league have concerns relating to COVID-19. We are working to address these concerns and developing a COVID-19 policy that will be in place and published prior to the start of the fall season. Our policy will take into account the most recent public health guidelines available to us. Actions we have taken to date:
- Added outdoor hand washing stations;
- Equipped each dugout with sanitizer for disinfecting player areas;
- Required all players to bring their own water (no community water jugs);
- Increased frequency of cleaning and disinfecting TSA restrooms.
The Policy we are developing will cover:
- the number of spectators who may attend events;
- where spectator should sit and what distances should be maintained;
- any restrictions on physical contact between players, coaches or spectators, and;
- any required protective equipment for players, coaches, or spectators.
Please review the news post titled Important Information for TSA Summer Camp Attendees for our current Covid – 19 policy.
With that said, TSA registration for the fall 2020 season of Soccer, Baseball, and Softball will begin on Monday, July 27, 2020 at 12 PM and close on Monday, August 3rd at 12 PM. To make registration easier for all, we will be doing a staggered registration with each sport opening at a different time on Monday July 27th.
All ages of Soccer will open on July 27th at noon
All ages of Baseball will open on July 27th at 1 pm
All ages of Softball will open on July 27th at 2 pm
Registration will take place online at www.timbergrovesports.org. Just like the spring season, there will be separate registration links for each sport. Please make sure to click on the correct registration.
Most of our divisions fill up very quickly, some in a matter of minutes, so we ask that you register early to secure a spot. Once spots fill up, we will form a wait list and individuals placed on the wait list will receive spots only if they become available and based solely on the date and time of the registration event. Players placed on the wait list will receive an update on status by Friday, August 7th. There is no guarantee spots will be available through the end of registration. If you have trouble with registration, please immediately email firstname.lastname@example.org.
TSA is a 100% volunteer organization. Every family is expected to volunteer in some capacity during the season (concession shifts, scoreboard, scorebook, team parent). In addition, there are several volunteer opportunities that provide early registration access for the following season (in this case the spring 2021 season). If you would like to know more or are interested in one of our long term volunteer openings, please email email@example.com.
PLAY UP POLICY
All play up requests MUST be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, July 24th at 5 pm to be considered. Emails sent directly to Division Directors, Directors of Baseball, Softball or Soccer, Board Members, coaches or other TSA email addresses will not be considered. Players who were approved to play up in prior seasons must apply again to play up.
Cost for the fall registration is $125 for all three sports. Once again, we will offer the option for athletes to sell candy to earn a $60 discount off the registration fee. If you select this option, the player must sell $120 worth of candy and return the $120 to the team parent prior to receiving a jersey. There are no multi-player family discounts. Athletes may only play one sport at TSA per season.
Parents who register players and then request to withdraw players will be entitled to a full refund until the close of registration on August 3rd. If a parent requests to withdraw a player(s) after August 3rd, they will not be entitled to a refund. If events need to be cancelled or postponed due to Covid-19, the Board will adjust the refund policy accordingly.
DATE OF BIRTH
Parents must register players with their actual date of birth in the registration link. TSA does not tolerate birthdate falsification. Parents will be required to show birth certificates, if requested. If the Board determines that the child’s birthdate has been falsified, then that child will not be allowed to play for that entire season and no refund shall be issued.
We are pleased to announce an extension of our partnership with Dick’s Sporting Goods for 2020. We will have one shopping weekend (August 15th-16th) where TSA families will receive 20% off your entire purchase.
