Update from State of Illinois – We are still playing!

Elgin Impact,

There were two key announcements that occurred today.  One from the State of Illinois and the other from the IHSA.  Both announcements have an impact on our upcoming season.  The Illinois guidance pertains to all youth and adult recreational sports, including, but not limited to, school-based sports (IHSA & IESA), travel clubs, private leagues and clubs, recreational leagues and centers, and park district sports programs.  This guidance categorizes various sports into Low, Medium or High risk activities.  The risk is based on proximity of play.

The good news is that Softball falls under the “Low” risk category provided social distancing is observed while in the dugout or on bleachers behind the dugout.   With each category of risk, there is a level of play that is allowed.  For Low risk sports, teams can play at levels 1,2, and 3.   Here is what each level means:

  1. No contact practices and trainings …

World Softball Day

Today, 13 June, the world is celebrating the annual World Softball Day, an occasion to display the love for the game. The creation of World Softball Day was inspired by the June 13th announcement by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 1991 that women’s softball was to be, for the first time in history, included on the Olympic programme.

14U makes an IMPACT

14U – A true impact…
As we wrap up our 3rd season in Elgin Impact history, we are starting to see the results of our program as it continues to mature through successes of the 14U team. In our second season of having 3 teams (in our inaugural season we only had 1 16U team), our 14U girls have exploded on the season creating a true impact for the program across the Chicagoland area.    While each team has improved year over year, the growth and improvement the 14U team has shown in 1 year is truly remarkable.  While we are extremely proud of this team and their accomplishments.  We are proud of the growth and improvements each team has achieved (both 16u and 18u have increased their winning percentage 200%)

In a young program, any growth and improvement is a success for us and we are truly proud and grateful for …
