*Please note Baseball Alberta insurance will not be valid for those areas that currently have restrictions on team sports from November 13th - November 27th, 2020 for all in person team and group activities.

 

We are pleased to release the Baseball Alberta Return to Baseball Plan. These guidelines represent the limit to which training or modified gameplay can safely resume within your Association/team in a Covid-19 world. We recognize there will be different levels of comfort from individuals and associations. Baseball Alberta will fully support associations who choose to remain closed for the offseason or choose to stay with Return to Baseball activities. 

 

Noncompliance can lead to removal of facility access through the municipality in which you offer baseball programming, bylaw fines or even provincial health officer order to cease activity.

 

 

Member Associations will be able to safely resume baseball activities once:

 

  • All players and coaches are registered with Baseball Alberta.
  • All registered players, coaches and volunteers have signed the appropriate waiver forms (found within the RTB drop menu on the Baseball Alberta website)
  • Associations have communicated with their municipality to ensure compliance with all local guidelines in order to book and use fields.

 

 

The Baseball Alberta Board of Directors and staff’s focus continues to be the health and safety of our athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers and fans. We respect the orders and restrictions that have been put in place in our province by our Chief Medical Officer of Health and her team.
