Hollister Heat is dedicated to providing the best fastpitch softball experience to the youth girls, ages 4-14, of our community. Our mission is to foster, promote, and teach softball to the girls of San Benito County and the surrounding region. We strive to provide maximum opportunities for all eligible individuals to participate in a healthy, positive and safe environment with a strong focus on moral conduct, sportsmanship, teamwork and developing self-confidence.
Finally some good news! Today the Governor announced new guidance for youth sports. Youth sports can resume FEBRUARY 26! Softball is considered an Outdoor Moderate Contact Sport which means that competition will be allowed beginning the 26th in counties that are in the RED tier or better and can even resume in counties still in the PURPLE tier with some additional restrictions.
USA Softball of Northern California encourages all league and organization officials to read the updated guidance provided by the State carefully. You can get there using this link:
As always this information is subject to change at any time but with the vaccine rollout accelerating I would like to believe that things will continue to improve. Also, please check your County to make sure they have not imposed any additional restrictions, which they are allowed to do, and with your field owner and make sure to confirm when it's ok to get back on the field. None of us wants softball to be "that sport" that gets called out for breaking the rules.
I'm so pleased to be able to send this message to all of you. I know I've said it before but thank you for your participation, patience and cooperation through all of this. Hopefully there will be nothing but good news moving forward.
John Gouveia, Commissioner
USA Softball of Northern California
