Further Guidance was Released:

Reopening of HIGH SCHOOL AGE-LEVEL of BASEBALL and SOFTBALL ONLY will occur JUNE 1, 2020.

Clarity was also given that; weight-rooms, band-practice, drama productions are not permitted. When ask if weight-rooms could be used for softball and baseball practices the Department of Education indicated that it does not pass the “smell test” and would be considered “out of bounds”.

Iowa is the first state and ONLY state to have SUMMER SPORTS PROGRAMS and we are the first state to REOPEN with some sort of attempt for our public school functions. We must be cautious and smart about how we do this and schools are to know, this is a local decision on a VOLUNTARY BASIS and not required.

That stated, West Marshall will attempt to hold this voluntary season and to ensure protocol for players and fans can be followed. The intent of this is to give access to our student youth and an to learn life lessons around the game that can be impactful throughout life. If you believe you or any family member is at-risk, please do not attend and follow guidelines issued by the IDPH and CDC. We encourage all to review the protocol issued in the above linked document released by the Department of Education.
