MANDATORY PLAYER FORMS
ALL PLAYERS must complete the 2020 Summer Jeffco Student Waiver form and EBB Release & Consent form to participate in the 2020 Summer program. Find forms here.
NOTE: You only need to complete Release & Consent form if you did not complete one in 2020 OR your employer or health insurance has changed.
PLAYER AVAILABILITY FOR GAMES
We are reviewing Colorado Classic Baseball tournaments and college showcases. Please indicate player availability/interest to play on specific dates this link.
Jeffco Athletics has prohibited spectators at Cougar Field and we are awaiting their approval for home games and concession stand operations.
We will use GameChanger for scoring, schedule updates and up to the minute communication with players and parents. Players and parents will receive invites by this weekend. Please note the protocol we will follow below:
PLAYER designation: rostered and potential swing players
FAMILY designation: parents/guardians only. This ensures that parent messages just go to parents and not friends, fans. If you want a family member/guardian added to this designation, please send a request to email@example.com
FANS designation: For all other family members, friends, etc.
Our goal is to reduce overall player costs, therefore, we will continue to use apparel from previous years/seasons.
Game Jersey: The navy performance t-shirts with gold and red lettering that we used last year will be the official game jersey for summer and fall for several years to come. Again, it is not mandatory to purchase the game jersey for this summer. For those who would like to purchase a jersey (@$39), please visit our online store - order by this Sunday 6.21.20
Hats: White or navy Evergreen baseball caps – available on our online store
Other: grey pants, navy sleeves, navy belt, navy socks
Face coverings: BYO or visit our online store to purchase a Marucci gaiter.
Jeffco Athletics' protocol mandates the following for players:
PLAYERS/COACHES SHOULD STAY HOME IF THEY FEEL SICK OR ARE EXPERIENCING COVID-19 RELATED SYMPTOMS
● Students must bring their own equipment and supplies (athletic equipment, apparel, water bottles and towels)
● Sharing of individuals' equipment is prohibited
● Every player and coach will be subject to Covid-19 symptom screening (answering questions about symptoms and having temperature checked) upon arrival to practices and games
● Face coverings are required for indoors and recommended for outdoor play
● No gathering after practices will be allowed
If any of the above criteria are not met, the athlete/coach/sponsor will be sent home
Protocol for next week: 6/22-6/27
Practice session may not exceed 90 minutes
No equipment may be shared.
Baseball players will not share gloves, bats, or throw a single ball that will be tossed among the team. A single player may hit in cages, throw batting practice (with netting as a backstop, no catcher). Prior to another athlete using the same balls, they will be collected and cleaned individually.
