Return to Play for Softball & Baseball in Chichester
COVID restrictions permitting, we hope to resume all our activities in some capacity in 2021. Please understand that all of the information below is aspirational and utterly dependent on whatever COVID restrictions are in place before and during the planned dates.
As always, we will be closely following BaseballSoftballUK's guidance for a return to play. This results from direct discussion with the government and Sport England.
Our activities are also subject to any restrictions set in place by Chichester District Council.
Senior slowpitch softball (16+)
We plan to start practice on Wednesday 31st March, 6-8pm, until September when we begin our Winter indoor league.
Senior fastpitch softball (16+)
In the past we've practiced fastpitch on an ad-hoc basis, so this can continue as normal. It's still too early to say whether we can host our annual tournament, particularly as many of the teams are based in Europe.
The Great Britain Fastpitch League, which many Falcons participate in, is planning to go ahead as normal this year.
Junior fastpitch softball (12-16)
We plan to start practice on Thursday 13th May, 6-8pm, for 6 weeks, then resume indoors in October.
Little League Baseball (8-12)
We plan to start on Saturday 3rd July, 10am-noon, for 6 weeks, then resume indoors in January 2022.
