COVID-19 Pandemic Protocols

Through this period of COVID-19 pandemic, FCKLL has taken tremendous efforts to ensure player and community health, while still allowing for recreation and camaraderie that baseball provides our families. FCKLL will continue to implement best practices in player and volunteer health, following local, Virginia state, and CDC guidance.  These efforts include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  • Social distancing protocols for all practices and games for players, volunteers, and families alike.
  • Mask protocols for all players and coaches for both games and practices.
  • Procuring of extra gear to ensure no shared equipment.
  • Revised socially-distant post-game acknowledgements among participating players and coaches.
  • Implementation of COVID-coach roles, ensuring all health procedures are followed in games and practices.
  • Required health screening for all players prior to all practices, games, or other league sanctioned events.

Incident Reporting

Please fill in the form below to report any safety incidents directly to FCKLL's Safety Officer.

On-Field Safety

Manage Game and Practice Activities

Avoid on-deck batters, keep equipment tidy (in dugout for AA-Majors, just outside dugout for Tee-Single A). Coaches should inspect equipment and remove faulty or damaged items that pose a safety risk. Players must wear helmets during batting practice and games. Catchers, at all times (even warming up a pitcher) must wear catcher’s gear, including helmet, mask with throat guard, chest protector, shin guards, and protective cup. Protective cups are recommended for all male players at all league events.

Manage Fields
Coaches must inspect the field you will be using. If field conditions are unmanageable, report to your division coordinator and FCKLL's Operations Lead.


Environmental Factors 
Stop play if for poor light conditions and lighting/thunder. Do not return to field until you have not seen any lightning for 30 minutes. Umpires have the final word on stopping or resuming a game due to lightning (however in Tee-Ball and Single A levels, managers and coaches make this decision).
