Like many nonprofit organizations, Tempe South Little League suffered financial losses in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, the league isn’t likely to recoup the losses of 2020 during the 2021 season with registration fees alone. Current registration numbers are down significantly as we assume many families, for various reasons, are not ready to enroll in organized sports. We understand that many members of our community have suffered financial harm, but we also know there are others who are seeking opportunities to give back in meaningful ways.
Here are some ways your donations help the league:
$30 operates lights for one two-hour game
$40 pays for a Jr. Umpire for a night of baseball
$100 provides a team with a season worth of practice and game balls
$300 allows us to purchase a new set of protective catcher’s gear
Replacing a mound when it becomes unsafe can cost up to $4000 Tempe South Little League operates solely on donations and volunteers and we need your help. Please consider donating and forwarding this message to a friend so that we can continue to provide an affordable and joyful opportunity for kids to participate in t-ball and baseball for years to come.
We are able to accept donations via PayPal at our email firstname.lastname@example.org or via mail at Tempe South Little League PO Box 12438 Tempe, AZ 85284.
TSLL submitted revised COVID protocols to the City based on their revised guidelines. We have received the following note from the City:
The updated COVID plan and maps have been reviewed and approved. As long as these guidelines are adhered to, we feel comfortable allowing more than 50 people per field during your allocated dates and times.
We ask that all parents/families/friends help the League adhere to these revised guidelines. Enjoy the games and bring your chairs and blankets.
