Update to the status of USA softball in the State of Maine, for August sanctioned USA events we will still have the MAINE Teams only for the month of August. I have looked at a lot of things in making this decision and feel this is my best way to keep all of our Maine softball players safe and hopefully on track to return to school in September. This will be week number 4 of having weekend events at a large magnitude and with everyone of you helping we have been COVID 19 safe. I will be lifting my ban on out of state travel but highly suggest teams comply with what has been put forth from the Governor’s office.
There are still some areas close to us that I would not recommend travel to.
Our neighbors in New Hampshire have their terms in place no out of state teams allowed to play in New Hampshire and New Hampshire teams cannot play outside of New Hampshire.
Our friends to the North (Softball of Canada) have closed border crossings until at least August 21st .
I will advise soon if more events are available in Maine.
