*Please note that for the softball and baseball registration, only a $50 refundable deposit per player will be charged. Should the 2021 season be able to proceed, contingent on county and state guidelines per COVID-19, you will be invoiced the full registration amount in 2021. Should the 2021 season be cancelled, the deposit will be refunded. Please see the letter from the WCLL President below for more information.
In order to stay ahead of a positive turn in Contra Costa County Health Orders, we have decided to open registration. This will help us get a sense of the number of players who want to play next year, as well as determine how many volunteer coaches we will need. We are going to charge a $50 deposit per player to hold a spot for the season. At the point your child is placed on a team in February, we should know what our baseball offering will look like. We will then invoice you the difference between the deposit and our standard registration fee. There are several scenarios we are preparing for as the season approaches that could impact fees.
Scenario 1: Season proceeds as normal and we can play a full season of games. In this scenario you will be invoiced the difference between your initial deposit and our normal registration fees.
All registrants must pay a $200 volunteer deposit per family, which is refundable only upon completion of volunteer duties, as defined in our volunteers page.
Scenario 2: Practice starts and games cannot proceed, but we are allowed to revert to a full season of practice. In this scenario we will refund your volunteer deposit, but offer no refund on the registration fee as costs are roughly the same as a full season.
Scenario 3: Practice starts but all baseball/softball operations are shut down abruptly. In this scenario you will receive a refund based on the amount of games /practices held and we will return your volunteer deposit.
Scenario 4: All baseball/softball operations are shut down before practice begins. In this scenario we will return your initial deposit.
Scenario 5: Practice starts and due to the lack of coaches we are unable to place your child on a team. We are going to place every registrant on a waitlist from the start of registration. Players will be placed on teams from a first come first serve basis. If your child does not get placed on a team, we will return your initial deposit. We will try hard to avoid this, but we have to prepare for the scenario where we have less coaches volunteering.
