“This season was challenging with the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Payne Caulder, head of adult sports and aquatics for the City of Albemarle. “We added in multiple safety measures during the season including: game times were staggered so teams could enter and exit the field without crossing paths, no pregame or postgame handshakes, hand sanitizer stations were added to each dugout, among other safety measures. Our teams handled the COVID safety policies very well. I would like to thank all the teams for helping make the season a success.”

Registration for the spring 2021 season will begin in February.
