Green Hills Girls Softball League Recommendations FOR COVID-19 

2021 Season - Each team decides how to implement these best practices

1. All local & state health official guidelines will be followed. These GHGSL guidelines will be approved by Metro Parks. 

2. No handshaking/celebrations: Players and coaches should refrain from handshakes, high fives, fist/elbow bumps, chest bumps, group celebrations, etc. 

3. Only Four (4) players MAXIMUM in the dugout at one time. Remaining players & coaches will most likely be placed in the bleachers with social distance. If the bleachers area does not work, then players will be stationed down the fence lines. Please practice social distancing.

4. Players should limit any sharing of playing equipment, bats, gloves, fielder’s mask, catcher’s gear, helmets, water bottles etc. Softballs will be cleaned whenever possible (in between innings) and an adequate supply of softballs will be on hand.

5. GHGSL spectators are encouraged to wear some type of face covering while at the Park. If a player chooses to wear additional PPE, they may do so as long as it does not compromise the safety of other players. Umpires, coaches and players may wear masks on the field but is not a requirement.

6. Cleaning supplies, as well as hand sanitizer, will be provided at the beginning of the season to each team.  

7. Parents should be advised to have backup supplies in the player’s equipment bag for use when needed and their own marked water bottle or sports drink. No team or dugout/sideline coolers are permitted. 

8. Cleaning and sanitation of common areas like dugouts, bathrooms, concession stands or similar areas between games or activities will be conducted. Teams should be advised to clean out and wipe down dugout or other field areas that they were in prior to leaving the playing field. Oncoming teams will be given the opportunity to clean their dugout before their players enter.

The necessary cleaning supplies will be provided for as long as the cleaning supplies last. TEAMS ARE ENCOURAGED TO BRING THEIR OWN SANITIZER MATERIALS. 

9.Please limit the number of two (2) spectators per player attending games in the Park. There will be no more than 100 people around/in one field at a time this includes an umpire, coaches, parents, scorekeepers, players and spectators. Social distancing of 6 feet is a requirement for everyone outside the ball fields. Exceptions to this number of spectators/player will be granted for special cases such as a single parent with multiple children. The family must stay together.

10. Game schedules will allow for fields to be staggered in start/finish times to minimize the number of people in the area of the fields. The schedule will allow for gaps (at least 15 minutes) in between games to help limit the number of people at the Park at one time. Teams must exit the dugout and the field at the time the game time expires and the oncoming teams will enter after all teams are cleared of the area and the dugouts have been cleaned.

11. Spectators attending games should follow 6’ social distancing guidelines at all times. No spectators will be allowed to sit in the bleachers and must sit/stand by the outfield fences. Handicap spectators may use the area behind the home plate areas. Spectators around the football fields must maintain the 6 feet social distancing. 

12. Any player, or person not feeling well, should not attend games or practices. 

13. Coaches should help to educate players on the hygiene/handwashing/touching of the face suggested guidelines. 

14. Pregame conference will be limited to one (1) Coach per team and the Umpire. Social distancing of 6’ is required. 

15. Batting lineup changes should be limited to communicating from a distance that maintains the 6’ social distancing guidelines at all times.

16. No post game team parties/shared snacks will be allowed at the Park.

17. The GHGSL board reserves the right to change any of the guidelines at any time to ensure the utmost safety and well-being of the players, the officials, and the spectators.
