After careful consideration, we have decided to cancel the 2020 season. We really wanted to do everything possible to have a season but not at the expense of our children and community. Many more items than one might think have delayed and influenced this decision and we thank you for your patience and understanding during this time. With that said, this has not been an easy task.
Please click here to initiate a partial refund or donation of your 2020 season registration fees by July 31st. We appreciate your patience with this process as it is being administered by our league registration vendor Sports Engine. As you can imagine refunding an entire league is not something they normally do.
As mentioned in previous updates, we are a 501C3 all volunteer nonprofit. We take stewardship of your contributions very seriously and run very slim margins. Many items necessary for the league to operate are paid for months in advance. Additionally, with the COVID-19 situation we were not able to fundraise for the league through sponsorships. Our goal was to refund as much as we could after covering sunk costs. If possible and not threatening to your family needs, please consider donating your 2020 registration costs to our league. This will help put the league on firm ground to serve our community in the 2021 season. Our league costs range from playing fields to charter fees, to uniform costs. Each year these costs go up and we are constantly trying to find ways to keep our registrations fees affordable. Thank you for your consideration.
Lastly, there is a possibility of a summer season being offered to our players. It will be dependent upon our state guidelines/timeframes and will be a separate registration with no fees to the user.
Thank you again!
President and SVNLL Board
As the season is still postponed until May 11, Little League International and District 9 are both optimistic about having a modified season.
We're excited that we may be able to have a modified season, but we want to make sure we're putting safety first and closely following recommendations from state and local government, as well as the CDC.
We have been receiving question about refunds and in this unique circumstance we're currently identify our options as a board. We will have additional information soon.
Due to concerns over the spread of the COVID-19 virus SVNLL has decided to suspend all activities through May 11, 2020.
This includes games, practices and any organized event by coaches or parents related to our teams. Any activity of this nature will not be supported or covered under our Little League Charter.
Little League® is an international pastime that has been a fabric of societies throughout the world for almost 80 years. Since its founding in 1939 by Carl Stotz, Little League has instilled leadership, character, courage and loyalty in all that participate, including the nearly 1.5 million adult volunteers. Little League can be found in more than 80 countries worldwide with more than 2.4 million children participating each year.
Sno-Valley North Little League (LL ID 447-09-14) operates in the surrounding areas of Duvall and Carnation, Washington. We serve over 400 kids in this area and our league is growing. Our teams generally begin game play in March and continue through June. Once the season begins, families can expect two team-related activities (practice and/or games) to occur each week. Children of ages 9-15 play on Upper Division teams, while children of ages 4-8 play on Lower Division teams. Our teams play on average 10-20 games at local fields each season depending on their division of play.
