Philadelphia Phillies Urban Youth Academy

Dear Staff, Coaches, Parents and Players:
Due to the national emergency created by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are taking action to suspend all Youth Academy activities in Philadelphia. This recommendation, which covers practices, games, after-school educational programs, clinics and any other potential group gatherings, is being made in the interests of the safety and well-being of our entire Youth Academy family as well as your communities. Additional guidance, updates and other important details will be shared in the coming weeks.

Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of anyone who plays, coaches and loves our game. MLB will continue to undertake the precautions and best practices recommended by public health experts, including by the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We advise all staff, players and families to follow the guidelines set forth by these experts, as well as your state's public health department (click here for a listing of state public health departments), and other county and/or local authorities including precedents set by area school districts and government agencies.
