Games and Practice Suspended

We will be temporarily suspending the Rec Season effective immediately. There will be no practice or games played as of March 13. We will continue to evaluate the situation and keep you updated on if and when we will resume playing.

Stay well and we hope to see you all back on the field sooner rather than later.

USA Softball COVID-19 Update, March 13, 2020

USA Softball of Southern California understands that league representatives have many questions on how the coronavirus (COVID-19) announcements nationally and locally may affect their season, participants and community. Based on the current situation and local updates in Southern California, we recommend that leagues implement a temporary suspension of all league activities.

While each community is being affected differently by the coronavirus, if your league continues with current activities and events, USA Softball of SoCal strongly encourages you to seek the advice from your community municipalities, public health departments, and local school districts on how to proceed.

USA Softball of SoCal staff is exploring all options on how to proceed with the regular season and post season play. We appreciate your patience and flexibility allowing us the time to work through these details.

We are committed to supporting all our leagues, participants and softball family during this difficult time. We will be communicating with you on a consistent basis, providing updates as they come available. Please look for our official communication via email, on our website and on our social media.
We are advising all our leagues and families to follow the guidelines set by the World Health OrganizationCenters for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), your state’s public health department (click here for a listing of state public health departments), and other county and/or local authorities including precedents set by area school districts and government agencies.


We wanted to give you an update from both USA Softball and the North Shore Executive Board on the COVID-19 situation. We take the safety of our players and community seriously and want to share some changes we are implementing immediately. You can find USA Softball’s response here: USA SOFTBALL COVID-19

Two changes we will be making as of today:

  1. Elimination of the end game hand shake and high fives during the game. (Relay races are fine but no hand contact or ball exchange)
  2. Cancelling of Padres day on 3/29. Families that have purchased tickets will be refunded.

We also recommend you wipe down any shared equipment frequently and keep you daughter out of softball if she isn’t feeling well.  

This is a unique, constantly changing situation, and we are receiving updated information on a daily (even hourly) basis. We will continue to follow the guidance of our local and state health agencies on future changes to our rec season.

North Shore Executive Board
