While the continuing pandemic may again require us to make adjustments in 2021, the below notes help provide some insight regarding our current approach to the 2021 season.
In 2020 we hosted separate state leagues due to the state COVID-19 restrictions. We are planning and organizing the 2021 league to include a traditional format in which all states compete together. Surely, we will continue to closely monitor developments throughout late fall and winter to determine if/how the pandemic may influence the 2021 league structure.
Due to the ongoing situation, NEAAU Baseball is NOT planning to host its annual League Scheduling Meeting in February. Normally we publish the spring league divisions in early February so that teams can commence league scheduling. However, we may choose to delay the release of the league divisions to allow more time to learn of updates from the individual states regarding possible COVID restrictions. We will release a preliminary league pre-schedule November.
We are planning to offer a new summer league for the 9-12u ages to begin a few weeks after the June conclusion of the annual 9-12u spring league. We understand local playing conflicts exist for some 9-12u athletes during the summer months, but we are going to offer this new summer league for those that are able and interested in participating.
Registration for many 2021 NEAAU tournaments is now available. Spaces will be limited in most events at this time as we continue to monitor the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.
