As we shared previously, the Board of Directors for Beverly Hills Little League made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Spring Season. Several of you inquired about refunds and we thank you for your patience as we resolved a few outstanding invoices/refunds.
We are now ready to issue partial refunds. Most divisions (T-ball, minors and majors, rookies and softball) will receive a $125 refund per child registered. Juniors will receive $85 per child and Challenger $50. We will e-mail the small number of Senior Division families separately.
If you want to receive a refund please respond to this email by June 30, 2020 (identify your child’s name, division and current address). If you instead wish to donate your refund to BHLL to help us plan for getting back on the field SAFELY, we will send you an acknowledgment of your donation for tax purposes. Please allow 4-6 weeks for refunds to arrive via mail (our volunteer Treasurer has to manually process approximately 700 requests).
In full disclosure, the reason we are unable to offer a larger refund is because a majority of expenses for Spring Ball are incurred before the season starts. Many of these expenses are not recoupable, such as uniform and equipment expenses, mandatory coaches clinics (first aid clinic, Positive Coaching Alliance certifications, etc.), umpire fees, insurance, registration and credit card processing fees, etc. Other expenses we received only a partial refund (e.g., District charter fees). The City also sent us a partial bill for use of City fields and buildings. We are refunding every cent left from Spring 2020 registration fees. The actual breakdown of revenues and expenses for Spring 2020 baseball will be available for review.
Thank you again for your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times. We look forward to the day when we can all get back to playing and coaching baseball.
