The Shelby Youth Ball (SYB) program intends to follow the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, La Crosse Coulee COVID-19 Collaborative (a partnership between La Crosse County Health Department, Gundersen Health System and Mayo Clinic Health System) and The American Academy of Pediatrics. In addition, SYB will align its COVID-19 policy to mirror other summer school and sports programs in the La Crosse area.

Masking rules:

  • Spectators: Spectators that are vaccinated do not need to mask. Those not vaccinated that cannot maintain 6 feet distance from others are encouraged to mask.
  • All players: During practice and games, masking is not required for any player when in the infield or outfield.
  • 11U, 10U, 9U, 8U baseball and softball: All players will mask while in the dugout as there is not enough room to distance 6 feet.
  • 12U-14U baseball and softball: If vaccinated, no masking in the dugout. Masking required for all players that are not vaccinated. Note: All players in this age group need to mask while in the dugout until at least June 18.
  • Tee-Ball and American League players: Masking is not required when waiting to bat as players will be spaced out. Players should bring a towel, blanket, or chair to practice and games to sit on while waiting to bat.
  • Concession stands: Masking is optional for all vaccinated workers. Masking is required for all unvaccinated workers of any age.  
  • Carpooling with other households: Limit carpooling. Masking encouraged for all not vaccinated individuals.


Other Safety Precautions:

  • Nobody should greet others with physical contact. After games to show sportsmanship, teams may waive their hats to the other team. 
  • Keep personal equipment separated from others.
  • Players & coaches should bring personal water/sports drink bottles.
  • Participants are encouraged to bring hand sanitizer to all practices and games.
  • Players will sanitize hands prior to taking the field for each practice.
  • Personal equipment is recommended, however, shared equipment (helmets & bats) will also be available


Stay home when appropriate:

Coaches, families, and players shall not attend any SYB event if they have tested positive for COVID-19, are showing COVID-19 symptoms, or if they have had a close contact  with a person who has tested positive for or who has symptoms of COVID-19.  The family shall:

  • Immediately contact the coach or the league organizers if any of these conditions arise.
  • SYB organizers may need to inform staff, parents, and other people about their possible exposure to the virus, while maintaining confidentiality as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)external icon and other applicable laws and regulations.
  • Follow guidance from health officials to isolate or quarantine.
  • Return to play only after any required isolation or quarantine is complete.
