Loris Recreation Update
Is there going to be Baseball and Softball in 2020?
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak and regulations for athletic events passed down from the Governor's office, Loris Recreation will be having baseball and softball in 2020 in a limited fashion. Depending on the age group, participants who already registered for the season prior to the shutdown will be able to participate in a 3-day camp for that age group. Please contact your coach for more information regarding dates and participation.
What does a baseball or softball camp include?
Each age group that has enough players still interested in participating in youth baseball or softball will be able to participate in a 3-day instructional yet competitive camp designed specifically for that age group. The camp will include stations for players to work on strengthening their hitting, throwing and pitching skills, as well as game situation drills that will feel like a real game. During the camp, Loris Recreation will be cooking hot dogs and burgers for campers and we will have plenty of volunteers to assist with the camp. Please contact your coach for specific camp dates and times.
Are the fields at the Loris Sports Complex and Watson Park open to the general public?
Yes, all athletic facilities and parks under the supervision of the Loris Parks, Recreation, & Tourism Department are open to the general public at this time. Please note, it is still the responsibility of members of the community to follow all social distancing guidelines set in place by the South Carolina Governor's Office and South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control while using the facilities. The Recreation Department and the City of Loris will still have the authority to ask community members to leave the facility if they are discovered to not be following the appropriate social distancing guidelines.
If I am not comfortable with my child participating in recreation this season but I've already paid a registration fee, will I be able to receive a refund?
Yes, refunds will be available for individuals who had already paid a registration fee and are no longer interested in participating. Individuals will have to complete a refund request form and turn it in to the Recreation Department or City Hall to receive a refund. Refund request forms may be accessed here.
What about Travel Ball Tournaments?
Travel Ball Tournaments will once again be happening on weekends in Loris. While there may be some scrimmages that occur from 6/6 to 6/15, no official games or tournaments will be held at the Loris Sports Complex or Watson park prior the June 15th, per the guidelines of returning to organized youth sports.
