Note as of June 18

Greetings Chesterfield Senior Softball

It’s with great pleasure that the Chesterfield Senior Softball Association (CSSA) can announce the start of our 2020 softball season! The State of Virginia is in Phase 2 which will allow us to utilize athletic fields.

CSSA is looking to start the season the week of June 15th with a ten week schedule. Please see the below tentative schedule: (All dates are subject to change according to the Governor’s directives for Covid-19)

June 18th – Men’s Practice and Registrations

June 22nd – Coed Practice and Registrations

June 25th - Men’s Open Season

June 29th – Coed Open Season

Health and safety of our members will be our number one priority. Below are the guidelines we will be using this season in order to get back to play. These guidelines may change as county rules may be updated throughout the season. In addition, it should be noted that if there is any player that feels uncomfortable about returning to play, they should not return.

  • All participants and spectators should take measures to keep themselves safe. Before you leave home, take your own temperature. We ask that if you feel sick or have a fever DO NOT PLAY, STAY HOME and take care of yourself, we want you to be healthy and safe.
  • We are limited to 50 people per athletic field. (County)
  • No one should enter the dugouts.
  • Bats can be placed on the fence near the dugout, and bags should be hung on the outside of the fence.
  • Bring your own water/Gatorade if you want something to drink. No team water coolers.
  • Bring your own disinfectant/sanitizer if you desire; masks are optional.
  • Bring your own chair. Bleachers will be off limits.
  • Whenever possible, everyone should practice safe social distancing.
  • Early games will start at 6:30pm
  • Games will be 50 minutes, and if tied when the time runs out; will end in a tie. No extra innings will be played. The goal is to get the early games finished between 8:10 and 8:15pm.
  • No post-game handshakes. In lieu of handshaking lines, each team is encouraged to congratulate the other team and show sportsmanship in their own way while maintaining their social distancing.
  • Once the early games end, players should pack their bags, leave the fields immediately and exit the complex. Do not go watch a game on another field, as this could threaten the 50 players per field mandate.
  • While moving in and out of the team area before and after games, give the exiting team a chance to completely exit the field before attempting to enter the team area. This to help practice social distancing.
  • Late games will start no later than 8:15. This gives players from the early games a few minutes to exit, and the players for the late games a chance to enter and warm up. The goal is for late games to finish between 10:25 and 10:30.

We look forward to seeing you during the season. As we proceed with the start of our season guidelines will be given to the coaches and posted on our website to help to enforce the State of Virginia/Chesterfield County guidelines.

If you have any questions, please reach out to any board member or send a email to chesterfieldseniorsoftball@gmail.com.

Thank You
CSSA Board
