In these uncertain times, WULL is excited to offer its Fall Ball program and we see this as an opportunity to appropriately get our ball players back on the fields and provide community and some normalcy to our WULL families. However, there are many practical challenges to address with organized youth sports today as well as many unknowns. Please see below for what to expect and planned changes for our league.
What to expect for WULL Fall Ball 2020
At this time, WULL Fall Ball is expected to begin the week of September 14th and end on November 22nd. However, this schedule is subject to change pending developments with the COVID-19 situation in Texas and Harris County and is contingent on state and local leadership decisions on youth sports, schools and school sports.
Different from previous Fall Seasons: All families will sign a COVID-19 waiver that is included in the registration process
Athletes, coaches and spectators should bring their own hand sanitizer and apply before entering the ballpark and regularly while at the facilities. In addition, team managers will have additional hand sanitizer available.
Dugouts will not be utilized for games or practices; players and equipment will be spaced out. This will be done by positioning players outside the fence line down the 1st base and 3rd base paths.
Athletes are allowed to wear masks or face coverings that cover the mouth and nose during games or practices, but not required.
Players should use and maintain their own equipment (bat/glove/batting helmets)
If catchers gear is shared it must be cleaned/sanitized in between each use
Coaches will be required to wear a mask or face covering at all times.
Individual COVID-19 exposure issues will be managed by a group made up of the team manager, the affected parents, the WULL Fall Ball Director and Coordinator and the WULL Executive Board. WULL will follow CDC guidelines.

Water fountains will not be used; players should bring their own water and not share with others.
