Dear Hampton Youth Association Families,
 
We hope this email find you and your loved ones safe and healthy. 
 
The HYA Board of Trustees met last night and unanimously decided to restart our baseball program. This is still contingent on the town approving our access to fields. 
 
Our baseball program will have a slow, phased approach that will adhere to strict safety policies based on localstate and national government guidelines, as well as, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Detailed information, outlined by the HYA Baseball Board of Directors, will be provided by our Baseball Commissioner with the opening of registration. Please be on the lookout for that notice in the coming days. 
 
Additionally, the HYA Board discussed the Fall sports season (i.e. field hockey, soccer) and have agreed to continue our "wait and see" approach. We will communicate any updates at the appropriate times. 
 
These are unprecedented times and our community is extremely important to us. We are excited to take this step forward provided it keeps our kids and families safe and healthy.
 
Thank you for your support!
 

4.22.20 - 2:22 PM

Dear Hampton Youth Association Families,
 
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we hope you and your loved ones are all happy and healthy. 
 
By now you should have received communication from the Commissioner of your respective HYA Spring sport. Please refer to those emails for sport status and direction. 
 
Recently, the HYA Board of Trustees approved FULL REFUNDS FOR ALL Spring sport registrants. As an all volunteer organization, please keep in mind that this may take a couple of weeks to process. Refunds will be made back to their original payment source (credit card, bank account, etc.). For those who paid by check, we will re-issue those by mail. We appreciate your patience and cooperation during this time.
 
We are hopeful to return to HYA play for the coming Summer and Fall programs and we’ll be sure to continue to communicate updates as needed.
 
Thank you!
 

4.16.20 - 10:59 AM
 
Dear Hampton Youth Association Families,
 
During these uncertain times we wanted to take a moment to thank our 2020 HYA sponsors. While the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting us in various ways, we didn't want to overlook these local businesses that may be affected. Just as they have chosen to make a positive impact in our community by supporting youth sports, we hope our HYA families choose to return the favor. Many of these organizations remain open. Whether it is ordering a comforting take-out meal or getting services remotely, please consider their business when opportunity arises. 
 
Please see our dedicated Sponsors webpage for a full list of local businesses that you can take advantage of. Together we can stay positive during this adverse time and together we will be stronger when this is over.
 
Thank you HYA sponsors and families for your support!
 

4.8.20 - 12:28 PM
 
Dear Hampton Youth Association Families,
 
We continue to hope the best for you and your family's well-being during these adverse times. As mentioned in prior communication, the Board of Trustees held an online virtual meeting last night which resulted in good discussions about our upcoming Spring sports season. We maintain a positive outlook and continue to prepare for some version of sports play when/if the time is right. 
 
This remains a situation that changes almost daily. For guidance, we continue to monitor the decisions of local, state and federal government, as well as, our local school administrative units and sport governing bodies. The HYA will continue to update you as we learn more and when appropriate.
 
Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please stay safe.

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.

HYA  IMPACT:

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 baseball@hyasports.org. Thank you.

Important Changes To The 2020 Season

First and foremost, the health and welfare of our NHYLA families, student-athletes and other fans is our priority at NHYLA. The NHYLA Board has been in constant communications as it regards the ‘2020 Coronavirus Pandemic’. NHYLA is taking this issue very seriously.

Cautious containment efforts continue to emerge here in New Hampshire and NHYLA strongly recommends our Towns/Leagues and families follow recommendations from the professionals for the best information.

As of this date, 2020 NHYLA League Games will start Sunday April 26, 2020. There will be 7 NHYLA League Games for each Town/League. Memorial Day Sunday, May 24, 2020, will have a NHYLA League Game.

What should NHYLA Towns/Leagues do in response to the 2020 Coronavirus Pandemic?

NHYLA highly recommends each Town/League follow the recommendations of professionals, particularly regarding the rapidly emerging cautious containment efforts. These decisions may also be influenced by your local school district, the facilities where you practice/play games, etc...

HYA RIPTIDE TRAVEL LACROSSE UPDATE:

Continuing to follow the order that all NH schools are closed through Friday, April 3rd, Riptide practices will only resume after this date. In accordance with NHYLA, first games will now begin Sunday, April 26th. As the situation remains fluid, please stay tuned for further updates. Thank you.

Again, we are sorry for the inconvenience this decision brings, but we hope that it leads to your family, friends and loved ones being safe and healthy. We will continue to communicate updates as needed.

UPDATE: The 'meet & greet' and uniform distribution portion of tomorrow (3/16) night's HYA Riptide Lacrosse Fundraiser at The Community Oven has been cancelled. However, any food orders made between 5 and 9 PM will still benefit the program. Please consider making a take-out order on its behalf.

Dear Hampton Youth Association Families,
 
We are all aware of the Coronavirus outbreak that is currently occurring in our country and we hope, first and foremost, that your family, friends and loved ones are safe and healthy at this time.
 
While this situation is being closely monitored by federal, state and local officials, the HYA has taken the position to mirror the decisions of our local school districts - SAU 90 & SAU 21 - and/or the governing leagues that our programs compete under (i.e. Cal Ripken, NHYLA, etc...). If schools close, so will the HYA. If leagues postpone or cancel, so will the HYA.
 
In the event that venues close where an HYA event is scheduled, then we will be suspending those events.
 
UPDATE: Seacoast United suspended for two weeks through March 27th.
 
  • All HYA Baseball clinics and activities, including ratings this Sunday, are suspended. HYA Baseball will reach out to our baseball families next week with more details.

Thank you,
