PROSPECTS BASEBALL INVESTS HEAVY INTO GENERAL SAFETY GUIDELINES
Our organization has ordered optional and precautionary items for all teams, including back-up hand-sanitizer for discretional usage and digital thermometers
for touch free forehead or use with disposable ear cones. A small supply of dispoable masks will be available, subject to manager transport,
in case a player forgets his required PPE. No PPE equals no play.
UPDATED: TREY HAS RELEASED ANOTHER VIDEO FOR PLAYERS AND COACHES
We're sharing some information with ALL players, pitchers or not, from Trey Korbel, an Xposure alumn that pitches for Triton College.
KORBS' WEBINAR WITH PARENTS ONLY IS 8:30PM Wed., May 27th!
All ages. Any prior times cancelled.
UPDATED: COACH KORBEL AND PROSPECTS RELEASED 10 AT-HOME VIDEOS FOR PLAYERS
We have sent e-mails to all parents and players 8U to 14U.
Prospects Xposure players may ask for it by request after eligibility resumes.
This is for the Wednesday, Thursday and Friday online training assignments.

This should be completed prior to the LIVE video webinars with Coach Korbel each week!

UPDATED: ANY AND ALL EVENTS SUSPENDED THROUGH JUNE 1, 2020!
We are working diligently every day to adjust the summer schedule.
UPDATED: ZOOM UPDATES WILL USE A PASSWORD TO ALLOW MEETING SECURITY!

UPDATED: JP SPORTS/USSSA TOURNEYS THROUGH JUNE 7TH WILL BE RESCHEDULED.
As stated on the last parent webinar update, please make sure you cancel any hotel reservation for tournaments through June 7, 2020. LWP will NOT travel during that period. If you are approaching a cancellation deadline, you or the manager should pursue removing any hotel block commitment.
UPDATED: 12U COOPERSTOWN DREAMS PARK CANCELLED IN 2020!
We have requested the refund in full but their offices are closed. We have put inquiries in for Cooperstown All-Star Village, who has a much more realistic policy with 4-week notices. We have also put inquiries in at Ripken Baseball for South Carolina and Tennessee venues.

UPDATED: ANY OMAHA SLUMPBUSTER TRIPS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED BY LWP
We have requested the refund due to uncertainty and due to no NCAA baseball which is a major part of this trip. I am also asking others to boycott this event as they are taking $100 admin fees from our teams when this is canceled at NO FAULT by us and well in advance.

FEES AND DOCS!
If you delayed your signed agreement by both parents, you are NOT allowed to participate in any event.
You are at-will, your risk and it's not allowed by any coach or player. Your payment is still due per Agreement, regardless of cancelled tourneys whether weather-related or unforeseen circumstance. Agreement and online addenda are very clear and as stated, broadly written to favor LWP, which is common sense for most people. We will do everyhting we can to get the boys reps and work with our directors to reschedule summer events or add fall opportunities. We'll get through this together.
ALL SLOTS LISTED BELOW CURRENTLY SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!
As announced at the federal level, we are amidst natural distaster rules and circumstances beyond LWP control, which are both stated in our addenda.
We are pleased to report that the Dome and Mokena Quarry will be working with us on space allotment for every hour we miss. We will preserve the time.
Eligible player training continues weekly via web conferences personally conducted and orchestrated by Coach Korbel. Go Prospects!

OVERDUE! PLAYER DATA MUST BE POPULATED IN TEAM SNAP!
Teams not 100% populated with this data IMMEDIATELY or it will have delayed USSSA team sanctioning and tourneys.
Please make sure the player name is spelled properly with the jersey #, DOB and complete street address so we can sanction teams as needed.
