Dear OGSL families,
Thank you for all your support and continued interest in our league during this extraordinary time. We have received your inquiries and are excited to announce that we are opening registration for our recreational softball program!
We continue to carefully monitor the California Department of Public Health guidelines for team sports. Currently, Alameda County is the purple tier which, based on the state guidance, allows for outdoor group sports conditioning and training. It is important to note that the county and/or city could impose more restrictive rules at any time.
We are also following the availability of Oakland’s public fields. As of February 14, the fields at parks and schools in Oakland are not yet available to the league. We are continuing to explore options to secure space for our league to operate and we are hopeful that we will be able to have some fields available by next month.
We are opening registration now so we can offer practices if COVID conditions and field availability allow us to do so. While we don’t know the exact format of the spring season, we do know that there will be significant modifications to our activities to allow for COVID safety measures, including mask requirements, temperature screening, and a 12 player maximum for teams.
Because of the considerable uncertainty in the format for our spring season, fees for the season will be reduced to $60 for all age groups. If we are not able to offer in-person softball activities this spring, we will offer refunds of this fee. We are targeting a start date of mid-March and hope to offer 2 months of softball activities, however these dates are subject to change.
