2021 Spring Registration Open & Links
Posted Feb 11, 2021

We are in the middle of switching over to a new website. Eventually the new site will be accessed here, but while we are switching over the domain, you can access the new website and registration links below:

Registration Information: 2021 Spring Information (bluesombrero.com)

Registration Link: Register Now (bluesombrero.com)

 

This season will look a little different because of COVID-19 restrictions and because we don’t have access to any school fields. We also don’t have all the City fields on all days like we normally do. Unfortunately, this means that we do plan to have a registration cap. After registration is full, we will have waiting lists. We will re-evaluate how many teams at each level and hopefully be able to pull kids from the waiting list in order of the date they registered. Please register early!

 

We are required to follow all state guidance for COVID-19 health precautions. At this time, the state mandate requires masks for all kids and adults ages 5 and up. The rules also would include spectator limits to accommodate field capacity requirements. Our goal is to have at least 2 spectators per child, but these rules change constantly and we are required to follow them at home fields and all fields we will play on as visitors. If restrictions are changed during the season, changes will be communicated. We understand that these rules may be upsetting to some, but please understand that the rules are not up to us, and we are doing our best to provide as normal a season as possible while mitigating the risk of spread to keep kids and families healthy.

 

Our refund policy has been updated to reflect COVID-19 related cancellations. We do not anticipate cancelling the season, but as we have learned the past year, it’s best to make plans for all scenarios. Please review the cancellation policy before signing up.

It will be outdoors and we will have them rain or shine.

 

2021 T-Ball

Tball will be different this year because we don't have access to school fields. To provide a season for our youngest players, we have modified the season as follows:

There will be a practice, followed by a game one day a week. This will either by on Friday nights or anytime on Saturday and Sundays. If there is a day of the weekend you can't play, please specify during registration in the comments and we will try to our best to accommodate, but can't guarantee a day for games.
Practice/Games will start the weekend of May 1st. There will be no game Memorial Weekend. The last weekend for games will be June 26-27th.
Practice/Games will be approx 1 1/2 hours. Some details about rules and length of practice time and game time is being worked out and communicated.
Masks are required for all kids over the age of 5 as mandated by the state of Oregon. This is not a decision we are able to make and have to follow the mandate to be able to use the fields. 
 

2021 Rookies

Rookie level baseball is for 1st and 2nd graders. Boys progress from tball to rookies baseball. 

Rookies will be different this year because we don't have access to school fields. To provide a season for all players, we have modified the season as follows:

There will be one practice a week, and one game on the weekend - it can be on Friday night or anytime on Saturday or Sunday.
Practices will start the week of April 19th. 
Games will start the weekend of May 1st. There will not be a game the weekend of Memorial weekend. The last game will be the weekend of June 26th. We will likely not have an end of the season tournament due to COVID-19 restrictions, but this could change. 
Masks are required for all kids over the age of 5 as mandated by the state of Oregon. This is not a decision we are able to make and have to follow the mandate to be able to use the fields.
 

2021 Softball

As of now, CCGSA plans a regular season. We will have more details after our meeting this weekend and will update the website.

2021 Season Update & Interest Form
Posted Jan 6, 2021

Pioneer Youth Sports would like to provide a season to all our players in spring 2021. Below is an outline of plans for each level. We must follow OHA guidelines for COVID-19 and do not know how many fields we will be able to use this year, so these plans are subject to change. Because we don’t have full details for this season, we aren’t opening registration and taking payment yet, but we are requesting that everyone please fill out our form to indicate if you are interested in playing in Spring 2021 to help us plan with our potentially limited field space. Please fill out a separate form for each child. Click here for the form. We plan to open registration online in early February.

CCJBA Plans (Minor, Junior and Senior baseball/3rd-8th grade)

Clackamas County Junior Baseball Association (CCBJA) is planning for a season at this point. Games would begin the week of May 17th. The season will end July 17th with the county tournament the following weekend.

Assessments may be done outdoors this year if we don’t get access to the High School indoor hitting facility and limits on indoor gatherings. Details will be communicated as this is planned.

CCGSA Plans (8u-14u Softball)

Clackamas County Girls Softball Association (CCGSA) is planning a normal season. Games would start the week of May 3rd. The end of season tournament will be either June 11-13th or June 18-20th. We would likely begin practices in April for softball.

Tball and Rookie Baseball

If we can’t use school fields we are going to be limited on what we can provide for these ages. We will do our best to provide an opportunity to play this year. One possibility would be a shortened season with practices followed by games one day a week, probably Fridays or Saturdays. This season will be in May and/or June - the dates are TBD at this time.

 

Don't forget to fill out the form!

We know that this may not answer all your questions, but we are hoping this will provide you some information to plan as we continue to plan also. 

 
2020 Season Announcements
Posted Jun 18, 2019

8/2/2020

As we all know this season has not gone according to plan. When we started our spring/summer season, we had every intention of hosting games and tournaments in Oregon City with the prior approval of the City. That changed suddenly when we were grouped together with Multnomah County in the phased opening of Oregon. At this time, we are losing practice fields due to previous reservations for soccer. We are happy that soccer is able to start their season, and hope that other fall sports start too. Because of the loss of practice fields and the inability to easily schedule games with us being in Phase 1, we have decided to end our spring/summer season on August 9th. We have several teams in a tournament the weekend of August 8-9th and have provided practice fields for them this week to prepare.

We want to thank everyone for their patience as we did our best to provide some sort of season for our players. We wish it had been different, but seeing the kids even just practicing with their teammates has been nice during this difficult time.

For players that are not continuing in fall ball (everyone that indicated No on the survey, or didn’t respond), please look for an email by the end of the week with a potential refund of some of the spring fees. These will be determined by team based on the money spent on scrimmages/tournaments after the league expenses were subtracted. Edit 8/18: Each player had $100 taken out of their fees to cover league expenses (jersey, hat, insurance, field maintenance, software fees - which was all more than $100). Then all money after that per player was placed into the coaches account for each coach to plan and schedule scrimmages and tournaments. Any money not used in that coaches fund has been refunded to those players not continuing on to fall. End Edit

For players that are continuing in fall ball (only those that filled out the survey and indicated they wanted to continue), we plan to have practices resume the week of August 17th. Look for an email this week with team assignment. We are still waiting for details from the fall league on games and costs, so that information will come as soon as we know.

We are all hoping for a return of a normal season in Spring 2021. We hope your player and family stay healthy and safe.

5/26/2020

CCJBA has canceled the season. Oregon City is planning to have practices and provide opportunities for tournament play over the summer for 3rd-8th graders. All refunds have been sent out for those that requested them.

For those players that would like to stay registered, our plan is to set aside the amount from registration fees that we have left over from not having to pay CCJBA/JBO fees and the raffle to use that towards tournaments for that team. All the money will go towards the team your child is playing with and if there is anything left over at the end of the season, it will be refunded to you.

4/20/2020

- Tball and Rookies spring 2020 season is canceled. All players have been refunded.

- Softball spring 2020 spring season is canceled. We are hoping to have an extended fall season starting in July, if restrictions have been lifted.

We are very disappointed to not be able to provide an opportunity for all players this season. We hope your families are staying healthy and look forward to an amazing spring 2021 season!
