NEW WEBSITE!

We’re in the process of moving to a new central website – cvisportsleague4kids.com – for access to informational flyers, registration links, and contact information for our Board members. In addition to our new website, CVI is now using TeamSnap as our primary tool for registration, team and group communication, scheduling, electronic health screening, and more. Update your saved bookmarks today – CVI Sports League and please add president@cvisportsleague4kids.com to your safe sender list or subscribe to our newsletter through the new website! This will be the last update sent to families that didn’t play Spring 2021 Baseball or who don’t sign up for Flag Football 2021 unless you subscribe to our mailing list! Thanks!

CVI Legends Tournament Baseball

We’re in the thick of Summer Tournament Ball season, and our three Legends teams (14u Francis, 14u – Mares, and 12u – Fisher) are practicing and playing hard and representing CVI all summer. If you have any questions about our tournament teams, please reach out to our tournament director Tony Mares at tmares27@gmail.com or email cvisportsleague4kids@gmail.com.

If you and a Manager have agreed to “freeze” your player, please complete the Frozen Player Declaration form by EOD 8/19/2021. All players who plan to be frozen, must have this form completed via TeamSnap. As a reminder, Team Managers may only freeze 5 players INCLUDING their own child – so please ensure you and have clearly communicated with the Manager before completing and opting not to attend the draft/evaluations.

Masks On

As a reminder, please ensure you continue to keep your mask on at all times while at the field – especially when near the players. In order to maintain compliance with our permits and ability to use CVUSD fields, ALL CVI coaches, spectators, and players (not in the field of play) must still wear masks. Thank you for your cooperation and your commitment to keeping our players and community members safe.

Oakland A’s Partnership

Through our partnership with the Oakland A’s, we’ve been offered some very special opportunities! Watch our monthly updates and our social media posts for more info. We hope our CVI players & their families take advantage of these unique experiences.

CVI Sponsorship We will be having Flag Football games at Marshall Field starting this fall, so we still have opportunities for you or your business to be a CVI sponsor. If you know of anyone that owns their own business and would like to sponsor our league or if you’d like more details, please contact a member of the CVI Board or email cvisportsleague4kids@gmail.com.
