On April 15th, 2020 Baseball Alberta updated their response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The updated response can be viewed in its entirety on their website at http://baseballalberta.com/. As a result, Barrhead Minor Ball will now be extending the suspension of all activities until June 1, 2020 consistent with Baseball Alberta and Baseball Canada’s directives. This will include any competitive tryouts, practices, meetings and clinics that may have already been scheduled or planned prior to June 1, 2020.
In other related news, the Edmonton Youth Softball Association (EYSA) has canceled their 2020 season. This was the league our U19 softball team played in last year, so this could impact our softball program if/when we are given the green light to resume activities this summer.
Barrhead Minor Ball will continue to issue further updates to our members based on the provincial governing bodies’ renewed policies as they become available. Should a permanent cancellation of any planned activity be deemed necessary moving forward, then any fees already paid to BMBA will be refunded after that time.
