DAYO T-Ball

Attention all T-Ball Parents and Coaches

The spread of COVID 19 has has an affect on how we are living our daily lives. Back in February no one expected the enormity of the issue we would be facing nor did anyone expect it would continue into the summer.
We had hopes we would be in a position to have spring sports whether it be delayed starts or a modified version of our schedules.  The Governor of CT and City officials have been diligent in their efforts to slow the spread of the virus and we may be at a point when we will start to see a reduction of new cases and hospitalizations.  None the less, we can not see  City facilities opening up before July at the earliest.
Based on information we have available today the DAYO Board of Directors and our sports commissioners have decided it would be in the best interest of all to  cancel our spring sports season. 

On a more positive note we will be looking extend the fall T-Ball season with potential start date in August running through early October.  We expect to have a summer Track & Field program and we may have a Speed & Agility/Skills camp in July for all Flag and Football athletes looking to get into shape for fall sports.  All of this is based on what direction we are given by the authorities as we move closer to easing restrictions and hopefully get back to a more normal life style.
