Dear West Nyack Little League community members,

    We truly hope that this message finds you and your family members doing well.

    Every year since 1959, West Nyack Little League has been able to provide a meaningful, fun, and safe experience for the children of our community.  As the 2020 season approached, preparations had already been underway for what looked to be another exciting season of Little League baseball and softball.  Of course things came to a grinding halt with the current worldwide pandemic.  Most recently, the Board-of-Directors has met on multiple occasions to assess the current state of affairs regarding COVID-19, and to discuss new guidance provided to us by New York State and Little League International.

It is with sincere regret that we have to inform you that the 2020 West Nyack Little League season has been cancelled.  Ultimately, we feel that the restrictions in which we all would have to follow would be unfair to our players and their families, and not in line with our league’s mission.  Please understand that we want nothing more than to provide your child(ren) with yet another wonderful baseball and softball season this year.  This decision was not made lightly, and was made after careful consideration of all the guidance provided to us.  The safety of your child(ren) is our primary concern, and given the current risks associated with COVID-19, we do not feel that we would be able to provide a 100% safe environment for them to play.  Believe us, we share in your disappointment at this decision, but we do feel it is the right one.  In the coming days, please be on the lookout for an email which will explain how we will be handling refunds and/or potential carry-over for next season.

We understand that there may be some of you who would still like to give your child(ren) an opportunity to play Little League this season.  If that is the case, we would like to recommend that you contact Darrel Caneiro, the president of Nyack-Valley Cottage Little League.  He can be reached at candez@aol.com.  After speaking with him recently, he would be happy to discuss any potential opportunities for your child(ren).

It is our wish that everyone has a very happy, safe, and, most importantly, healthy summer.  Rest assured, West Nyack Little League cannot wait to welcome everyone back for the 2021 season.  Until then, be well!

Most sincerely,

The West Nyack Little League Board-of-Directors
