BMBA Response to COVID-19

On March 13, 2020 Baseball Alberta released an update regarding their response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Their response can be viewed in its entirety on their website at http://baseballalberta.com/.  As a result, Barrhead Minor Ball will also be suspending all pre-season activities until April 6, 2020 consistent with Baseball Alberta’s recommendations.  This will include any competitive tryouts, practices and clinics that may have already been scheduled or planned prior to April 6, 2020.  Softball Alberta has not yet issued an official policy statement as of this time, but we expect their response to be consistent with Baseball Alberta’s and most (if not all) other sports organizations so far.

Baseball Alberta has indicated they will issue another policy update on or before April 3, 2020.  Barrhead Minor Ball will issue further updates to our members based on the provincial governing bodies’ renewed policies at that time.  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.  As we are still two months away from our planned 2020 regular season start date, the hope is that we will still be able to proceed normally with the regular season schedule and reschedule any suspended clinics or other related activities as well.
