Covid-19 & AYS update

Posted on March 14, 2020 at 7:30 PM Comments comments (0)

In accordance with RSU 73’s latest update to cancel all events that bring in the community and to suspend nonessential meetings and in regards to COVID-19, AYS has decided to cancel the final week of the girls basketball season and postpone indoor soccer and indoor field hockey until March 31st, at which time we will reevaluate and hopefully be able to resume.


Indoor Soccer and Indoor Field hockey, once resumed will continue with the same number of sessions as scheduled but days and times may vary. Spring sports (baseball, softball and tee ball) are unaffected at this time as they are not scheduled to start for a few more weeks. We are planning to carry on with these programs as scheduled.


We are very disappointed to have to have to halt our current sports programs but we feel it is in the best interest of our community to assist in limiting the potential spread of the coronavirus and keep those that are at high risk safe. We are simply placing our youth and our communities’ health and safety first.


We plan on monitoring the situation very closely as all this continues to unfold and AYS will do everything we can to stay in line with latest recommended health guidelines. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and hope you all will understand our decision.


In the meantime we encourage everyone to stay safe and remain hopeful that we will be able to get back to normal as soon as possible.


If you have any questions with regards to basketball, soccer, or field hockey, we refer you to the commissioners of those sports. @Heather Williams-basketball @Jennahh WM Rocque- soccer @Ashley Draper -field hockey

 

 

 

COVID19 & AYS

Posted on March 12, 2020 at 5:15 PM Comments comments (0)

With the national news, local news, and social media so heavily focused on thecoronavirus and a confirmed presumptive positive case in Maine, we at AYS, are encouraging people not to panic but just to be aware and be educated on the virus. Please just take a few minutes to read up on symptoms, hand washing, and risk factors.

 

We are currently preparing to finish the remainder of the basketball season, indoor soccer and indoor field hockey as scheduled. Our #1 concern is the health and safety of our athletes and community so let’s do our part to limit exposure. We ask that you help us by keeping sick athletes, with a cough or other contagious symptoms at home, even if that means having to miss a game or practice due to illness. We are asking that all athletes to WASH THEIR HANDS before entering the gym and to sanitize frequently. If you have family members or friends that are in the higher risk groups including advanced age, compromised immune system, pre-existing and cardiopulmonary issues (such as COPD, smoker, diabetes, high blood pressure) please encourage them to take the proper precautions which may mean avoiding large crowds where illness can be more easily transmitted.

 

While the chances of getting seriously ill are low for us and our younger population let’s make sure we do our part in protecting those people that have increased risk factors. If we all work together, we can all get through this healthy. We appreciate your cooperation, and support through this time so we can continue with all our current sports.

Spring Sports Registrations!

Posted on February 24, 2020 at 8:25 PM Comments comments (0)

AYS takes pride in keeping registration fees as low as possible for our communities’ youth, however there comes a time when the current fees need to increase. Due to increase costs and demand of umpiring, league fees and the need to start purchasing more updated equipment/uniforms, we have to increase our spring sports registrations fee.

 

We have avoided raising our prices for as long as possible, for the past 6 years baseball and tee ball stayed at the same fee and softball had only increased $10 during that time. Unfortunately, we can no longer prolong the inevitable. Our new registration fees for the upcoming spring season are Cal-Ripken Baseball $60.00, Franklin County Youth Softball $60.00 and Little Sluggers Tee Ball $40.00.

 

We wish to thank you for your valued support and participation in our AYS Program and know that you will understand the necessity for this registration fee increase.

 

A simple breakdown of each spring sport can be viewed at the AYS website. It can be found under documents, Click on sport under Where my Registration Fee goes?

 

With that being said, we are happy to announce that SPRING REGISTRATIONS are now open for the upcoming Baseball, Softball & Tee Ball Season. Visit www.ayssports.siplay.com to register online or come by and see us; to register in person on Saturdays during Girls Basketball games, 10am to 1pm at the AYS Complex located at 25 Cedar Street in Livermore Falls!

 

WE ARE SO READY FOR SPRING AND TO PLAY SOME BALL
