New Presidents letter 2021

Hello Petaluma National Families!!!

I hope that everyone is well and handling these tough times as best you can. I realize it has been some time since my last communication and I want to take this opportunity to provide an update and outlook for the 2021 season.

REGISTRATION: Registration is open and ongoing! Visit our website to register your player(s). Thank you to the families who have already registered your player(s) for the 2021 season, we look forward to seeing you on the field. I want to take a moment to recognize that we completely understand and respect the apprehension that surrounds signing your player up for the 2021 season in a year where there seem to be more questions than answers. While we cannot predict what our season will look like, I can assure you that your Petaluma National board is doing everything in its power to move forward to have a season within the guidelines and restrictions set forth by Sonoma County. We have extended our registration deadline to February 23rd in hopes that with time, you may feel more comfortable with our plan. If you are concerned about the registration fee, please know that we are prepared to offer FULL refunds to all families up through the day prior to evaluations. Additionally, we are offering scholarships to families who need them due to financial constraints. Please send an email to [email protected] to request your scholarship code.

COVID: We are currently monitoring the situation and as most of our children are still online for school, we continue to see strict limitations for sporting events in our County and across California. Last month, California Department of Public Health issued promising guidance for youth sports, especially baseball, to return to the State. With this guidance we can determine what modifications need to be made to our operations to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all our kids. In addition to this we are communicating with county and local officials, Petaluma City Schools, and our friends from other Little Leagues within our District across multiple counties who are also moving forward with a 2021 season.

SPRING 2021 SEASON: At this point, the PNLL board has been busy evaluating how we will deliver a safe baseball season to all our National families in 2021. As you can imagine this has proven very challenging considering the ongoing restrictions. While we all desire to get back to baseball as it was on Opening Day last year, our primary goal is to assemble a plan that is both safe and fun for all.  

We appreciate your patience as we navigate these unprecedented times. We will continue to provide updates as new information becomes available, but please understand there are many unknowns at this point and the factors leading toward decisions change from week to week. We appreciate your continued support and look forward to seeing you all on the fields soon!

Thank you,
Jon Ganley
2021 PNLL President
