In March just hours before our first practices were set to begin, the world changed — seemingly overnight — and businesses, schools, organizations and families around our community are changing with it. Amid the change and uncertainty, one constant remains: the long-term safety and well-being of each and every member of the OYO family.
We understand and truly appreciate how much every young ballplayer longs to step outside, head to the ballpark, connect with friends and teammates and simply play ball. At OYO, we share the same passion, desire and commitment — when it is deemed safe to do so.
MAKING THE CALL ON A 2020 SPRING SEASON | The OYO Board of Directors has monitored the recommendations and guidelines from state and city government leaders and health officials on this very challenging and difficult situation. We’ve balanced health guidelines with safety recommendations and timelines with family feedback. With the health and safety of our families, ballplayers, coaches, umpires, concession workers and volunteers paramount, the OYO Board of Directors has completed a very thorough of review of not only the 2020 Spring Season but all the activities and programs at Veterans Memorial Park, the home of OYO.
THE DECISION | As a result, OYO has canceled the 2020 Spring rec league and rec travel program for all baseball and softball players. However, we are revamping our player development opportunities for this summer and fall (see below for details).
SO, WHAT ABOUT THE FEES YOU PAID? | They are your fees, and we want to make them available to you again as soon as possible. We are providing all families who registered their ballplayer(s) for the 2020 Spring Season to determine how they would like us to reimburse/process all paid registration fees to date. And to confirm, any outstanding balances in your respective payment plans will be waived/canceled.
TELL US HOW TO REIMBURSE OR PROCESS YOUR FEES PAID | All families should click here to complete a brief two-minute survey to indicate how you would like us to process your paid registration fees. All refunds will be for the actual registration fee only, not including any online transaction fees processed by the LeagueApps system. The remibursement options include:
- CREDIT | All fees paid will be credited to your LeagueApps account for your use when you register for a future rec league program thru August 31, 2021 (if we do not hear from your family, this will be the default option we will apply)
- DONATION | If you wish to simply convert the fees paid into a donation to OYO, we truly appreciate your generosity and will provide you with a letter confirming your tax-deductible contribution for IRS purposes
- REFUND | All fees paid will be refunded to your credit card or via check depending on system permissions before May 22, 2020
FEEDBACK DEADLINE | This survey will remain open through Friday, May 15. After that date, all familes who did not indicate their preference will automatically receive a LeagueApps credit for a future season or program.
We thank you for your continued support and understanding. We hope you and your family continue to remain safe and healthy.
