LAYBS is committed to the safety and wellbeing of our players, parents and fans. Our league has gone through a training with the City of Long Beach and we have been granted our permits to continue our softball and baseball program.  Read below to find out the guidelines put forth by the city of Long Beach in regards to participation in youth sports, as well as the additional guidelines that focus on our program and facility at El Dorado Park.

2020 LAYBS Fall Development Program will adhere to all guidelines put forth by the city of Long Beach in regards to participation in youth sports. Those guidelines can be found in the attachment below. 

The league will also have additional guidelines that either mirror what has been provided by the city or that focus on our program and facility at El Dorado Park. These guidelines are as follows: 

  • Coaches will be approved by our board of directors and assisted in practice planning if needed by our coaching development team.
