WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN....?
Back to The Fields - 2021
Currently, Governor Brown has county risk levels being evaluated/changed every two weeks on Tuesdays, so updates to our Back to Fields, 2021 Guide will reflect any new mandates. You can download the entire Back to Fields Guide - OR - we've created a Back to the Fields Quick Sheet.
Due to current Face Mask/Covering mandates:
NAFA REQUIRES Face Masks/Coverings by everyone, at all times: from the parking lot, in shared spaced inside and outside any facility, on the field, in the dugout, and all time when not eating, and while keeping 6 ft social distance from people outside your home.
In softball we are not always happy with the way the game is called. For some, the Umpire is doing a great job, for others - they are screaming from their seats about how unhappy they are with the Blue.
Right now: Governor Brown is the Blue.
She is making the calls. We may not like them, we may think they are good calls or bad calls - they might even make us mad, however, we still have to follow the rules to play the game.
What does it look like?
Teams and players have really embraced the challenges, and some of that masks look pretty cool!
NAFA understands the passion and desire to get back on the fields, however, until there is a vaccine, cure, or treatment found for COVID-19, we strongly recommend that players, coaches and all spectators adhere to the guidelines and safety precautions presented, and recommends that anyone who is considered 'high-risk' stay home. The information and guidelines are not meant to replace those given, at any time, by the CDC or other governing bodies, nor should they replace any professional medical advice, or opinions. NAFA does not assume any liability or responsibility for the recommendations herein. Further, NAFA does not assume any liability or responsibility for the health or safety, specifically in regards to the contraction of COVID-19 or any medical issues related to the contraction of COVID-19, by any player, coach, spectator or staff who choose to participate in a NAFA event. Members of the community who have been determined by the CDC, or their medical professional, to be ‘high-risk’ should continue to shelter in place and not participate in attending a NAFA event during this time.
