When will the season start?
Tryouts will be March 20 and 21.
When the season begins, how will my player be placed on a team?
Sunrise understands that many players may not have played much baseball over the past year. We are holding tryouts/clinics the weekend of March 20-21, to help shake the rust off and evaluate players, which will help us select the appropriate division for the player.
Will we play games?
Yes. L.A County is now in the red tier and allowing competition.
What safety measures will be taken at Sunrise?
Sunrise has developed a comprehensive safety plan that meets the guidelines applicable to the re-opening of youth sports as published by the California and Los Angeles County Departments of public health. This plan includes, but is not limited to, mandatory mask use for all adults on the field and off while at Sunrise, handwashing stations, reduced capacity in dugouts, use of the stands as supplemental dugout space, the presence of only 2 parents/guardians per child, reduced number of teams and players per team, requiring players to be spread amongst the 9 baseball positions for all practices, sufficiently spaced practice times, etc.
How long will the season be?
Once it begins, the spring season will run for approximately three (3) months with plans to continue through June.
If I do not register now, can I sign-up later?
At this time, Sunrise is limiting all teams to 10 players and spots will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Will Sunrise have All-Stars this season?
District 40, of which Sunrise is member, is currently evaluating the potential of hosting an All-Star tournament if, and when conditions permit. If District 40 conducts an All-Star tournament, Sunrise intends to participate.
Can I watch my child play?
Sunrise will allow both parents and siblings to watch on property at all times until social distancing restrictions are lifted by state and local public health authorities.
Are masks required while playing baseball?
All Sunrise managers and coaches will be required to wear masks while working with players. All players will be required to wear masks.
Can I volunteer to manage or coach?
