An Open Letter about Safety

Managers, Assistants and Parents,

In an effort to help our managers and coaches comply with our safety standards, the Board of Directors for the Chanhassen Little League (CLL) has put forth a mandate of safety rules to be followed as outlined in this manual. Each team will also appoint aTeam Safety Officer (TSO) will assist the manager and the designated coaches of that team to insure that the safety guidelines are met whether at practice or during a game.
The commitment to this Safety Manual is proof that we at CLL are dedicated to our cause. Please read it carefully, as it will familiarize you with safety fundamentals. Then use the manual as a powerful reference guide throughout the season.
