Cohort Registry Application Form
Baseball Alberta is providing a cohort application form for all teams wishing to join an association cohort. We will form cohort groups with these applications to try and give all teams the opportunity to play modified games within their region. Cohort groups will be assigned based on location and indicated skill level. Although Baseball Alberta is requesting your cohort team preference, there is no guarantee we will be able to accommodate all requests. Umpires will also be assigned to your cohort group should we have enough umpires available in your region.
Cohorts and bubbles should remain together during training and only play within the same geographical region (e.g., within a county, town or quadrant of a city). Sports teams can play in region-only cohorts of up to 50 people (including, coaches, umpires, players). It is meant not to have individuals from outside of the immediate region training or playing with each other during stage 2. For Stage 2 of Relaunch, activities should be restricted to local community opportunities. Participants should not seek sport, physical activity and recreation opportunities in other regions, or out of province. Cross-jurisdictional, or inter-regional, play should not occur during this stage.
Once a team has established a cohort group of up to 50 on field individuals, they will not be allowed to form another cohort group without first suspending baseball activities with their original cohort group for at least 14 days. Practices within each individual team may continue during this 14 day period.
Baseball Alberta recommends that families stick to 1 cohort (sporting or other) for the summer to minimize the spread of the virus. Baseball Alberta will only allow your child to be a part of 1 cohort group for baseball. This is to limit the amount of potential spread between groups. Consider what additional opportunities you are engaged in that may pose a greater risk to your baseball cohort.
If your child is looking to join a cohort of another sport, Baseball Alberta has no jurisdiction over those groups; however you may be required to declare your participation with another sporting cohort upon registration. It is strongly recommended that individuals belong to only one sport or performance cohort to minimize the spread of the virus. AHS Guidance is in place during a pandemic to mitigate the risk of transmission and to keep group numbers to a manageable size should an outbreak occur.
