Dear HYA Families,
We hope you, all your friends and loved ones are healthy and doing well during this challenging time. The HYA continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and mirror direction from our schools, local and federal government, and governing leagues. As a result, all HYA Sport programs are suspended until May 4th.
The HYA Board of Trustees has a virtual meeting the second week of April where we will be discussing our Spring sports and what our outcomes will be. This includes, but not limited to, refunds if sports are canceled, re-registrations if sports are modified, planning for adjusted schedules, etc...
After our meeting we will update all of you to our decisions and the plan we will follow.
Please use our Feedback button and/or email email@example.com if you have any questions.

COOPERSTOWN DREAMS PARK NEWS RELEASE:
In the best interest of our country, state, local community, local partners, coaches, umpires and most importantly, our employees, players and their families, whose health and safety we are obligated to protect, Cooperstown Dreams Park has determined it is necessary to cancel the 2020 season.
All teams will receive a 100% refund or the option of future participation.
Cooperstown Dreams Park was hoping to avoid this outcome, but it is the only responsible course of action. Like the rest of the nation, we have never experienced anything like this. We know our staff will be resilient and steadfast in its preparation for the 2021 season and that once again the joyous sounds of kids playing the game of baseball at Cooperstown Dreams Park will be heard.
As a result of the cancellation of the 2020 Cooperstown Dreams Park season, the HYA will unfortunately not field a team to represent us this year. For more information and/or questions please email email@example.com. Thank you.
