Here are ways we are keeping Players healthy
KSR is committed to keeping players healthy amid the COVID-19 Epidemic. We have implemented health and safety precautions to deliver on our mission to provide a safe and fun environment for players.
To comply with Governor Holcomb's State Mandate, all players, coaches, assistant coaches, team managers, umpires, and volunteers must wear a mask unless batting, base running or fielding.
The board met via zoom May 12, 2020 and approved a Fall 2020 Season that keeps our players safe amidst Indiana’s Re-Opening Phases. Unless the Governor, Tippecanoe Health Department or TSC make any changes to the currently published re-opening phases, Fall Season will begin August 16, 2020 and play up to October 16, 2020 weather permitting.
All age groups will play according to their age group cut off from the cancelled spring season; no playing up unless previously approved by Softball/Baseball Director (see FAQs on the website).
Tee Ball and Rookies Season will not be offered during Fall 2020. We invite our 5-6yr olds to please join us again for the Spring 2021 Season.
KSR leases its fields from Tippecanoe County School Corporation. We have approval to enter the fields/concession stand on July 1, 2020 and must close/winterize the fields and concession stand by October 31, 2020.
KSR will use the recommended health and safety measures by the USSSA where possible.
All players, coaches, umpires, spectators, volunteers, team managers and family members are to practice social distancing.
Any person who is experiencing symptoms of sickness will be prohibited from attending the event/venue of play.

Every player is to have their own helmet and bat. No sharing of equipment will be permitted. Players must come to practice with their own helmet and bat.
Team managers will wipe down all helmets and bats and catchers gear between innings.
If you need assistance getting a helmet or bat for your child, contact our Equipment Director Eric Bruce at email@example.com

For Fall Season, each player (or their parent/guardian) is required to fill out a self-check health questionnaire BEFORE each practice AND each game. The assessment can be accessed through the TeamSnap App within each scheduled team event.
It is critical to have parents join board members, coaches, managers and volunteers in monitoring their families to help eliminate the spread of the pandemic at KSR activities.
