In accordance with the State of California’s Stay-At-Home Order issued on Thursday, March 19, USA Softball of Sacramento has suspended all softball related activities indefinitely. This suspension of play shall be in effect while the state order is in place, however it may extend past such date should there be such county or state recommendations.
This applies to all sanctioned activities by USA Softball of Sacramento including the Youth Recreational Leagues, the Youth Select Program, the Youth Travel Team Program, the Adult Recreational League Program and the Adult Tournament Program. There should be no organized team activity and all teams and leagues are encouraged to stay at home per the Governors order.
We understand there are a lot of questions about when and if we will resume play for the spring season, however we simply don’t have answers yet. Anything we come up with at this point would be pure speculation. Once we have additional information from the State and our local Health Departments, we will be sure to provide you with updated information.
Thank you for your continued understanding. Stay healthy.

As information continues to become available regarding the increasing spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), we wanted to provide you, our membership, with additional guidance on the implementation of the USA Softball program in our local community.
USA Softball of Sacramento is recommending that our leagues and teams exercise an abundance of caution and implement a temporary suspension of all softball related activities until no earlier than April 1. This includes the Youth Recreational Leagues, the Youth Select Program, the Youth Travel Team program, the Adult Recreational League Program and the Adult Tournament Program.
While each community is being affected differently by the coronavirus, USA Softball of Sacramento feel that it is in the best interest of our volunteers and participant families to delay the implementation of the season to begin no earlier April 1. If your league chooses to continue to operate in its local community, then we strongly encourage you to seek the counsel of your community municipalities, public health departments, and local school districts. For those leagues that have already begun their seasons, we kindly ask that you postpone all activity that may involve the gathering of individuals for games, practices, events, or meetings. If you have not started your season, we kindly ask that you modify your schedule and season plans to start no earlier than April 1.
Should USA Softball of Sacramento determine that the recommended delay of the season will extend past April 1, we will provide timely notification and information regarding the impact of such a delay.
We are committed to communicating with you on a consistent basis, providing you with additional information and best practices to work through the coronavirus pandemic.
We will continue to work with the local health departments as we closely monitor the situation, and we are advising all our leagues and families to follow the guidelines set by the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), your state’s public health department (click here for a listing of state public health departments), and other county and/or local authorities including precedents set by area school districts and government agencies.
We encourage you to share this information with parents and membership of your league to ensure they are up-to-date and informed. As the situation continues to develop, USA Softball of Sacramento will do our best to continue to keep our leagues, volunteers, and families informed.

Per Governor's directive that all gatherings over 250 people be postponed, we are instructing leagues to postpone or cancel their scheduled Opening Day Ceremonies. At this time there is no directive to cancel smaller league or team activities and that decision is up to individual leagues and teams based on county and city recommendations.
We encourage all players, volunteers, families, and fans to follow the best practices, as outlined by the CDC, which include frequent handwashing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (if soap and water are not available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer) avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands, and avoid close contact with people who are sick.
If you or your child are ill; have a fever, cough, or respiratory condition; have a compromised immune system; are in any other group that may have an increased risk of contracting a virus like the coronavirus; or have recently traveled to a country listed on the CDC’s Risk Assessment by Country, we encourage you or your child to refrain from team or league related activities until cleared by your healthcare provider.
As the situation continues to develop, we will do our best to continue to keep you informed via email, our league website and our Facebook page.
