IMPORTANT

EARRINGS - If you are thinking about getting your child's ears pierced, WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU WAIT UNTIL AFTER SOFTBALL SEASON since the girls cannot wear earrings while playing softball. This applies to all ages - no exceptions.

HELMETS - Dixie Youth passed a rule directing that helmets not contain any artwork that could resemble the shape, color or size of a softball. Although EM has not enforced this issue, please be advised that this matter is up to the discretion of the umpires and any player wearing a helmet that meets this criteria may be asked to remove said helmet.
