We welcome the Return to Play guidelines released today by viaSport (https://www.viasport.ca/sites/default/files/ReturntoSportGuidelines.pdf ). We've been in dialogue with viaSport while these were being developed, and will soon release our Return to Play guidelines for baseball that are consistent with the viaSport approach.
We caution baseball stakeholders that several things still need to happen before any on-field activity can begin. This will take some time. With the viaSport guidelines released, our Return to Play Committee will conclude their work and submit the Plan to the Baseball BC Board for review and approval. This step is required by viaSport.
Once approved, Baseball BC will lift the suspension of baseball, subject to the Guidelines. Again, the baseball community is reminded that getting back to activities on the field may not happen right away. Even after the suspension is lifted, organizations will still need to comply with all Guidelines (Federal, Provincial, Municipal, viaSport, Baseball B.C., etc.) and abide by directions from their governing body (B.C. Minor, Little League, PBL, etc.), if applicable. [LINK]
