Hello members of our West Hill Baseball Community,
To update everyone regarding our 2021 program status given the recent Government of Ontario's Roadmap to Reopen revealed late last week. West Hill Baseball views this as great news, and we optimistically look forward to the beginning of our 2021 playing season, albeit with altered calendar dates.
To accommodate our anticipated delayed start date, we have moved our Early Bird registration date to June 20, 2021.
Ontario's Roadmap to Reopen plan aims to get to Stage 2, allowing outdoor sports leagues to resume on July 4, 2021, and we are preparing for this date. Please note this is a conditional start date. Stage 2 requires 70% of adults to have received their first vaccination, among other qualifying requirements. When the Stage 2 start date is confirmed, we expect that our City and TDSB park permits will be issued, and that our insurance from Baseball Ontario will be confirmed and released.
In the meantime, we have continued to plan and prepare.
It is certain that when we resume play, to make this season safe, WE WILL FOLLOW Baseball Ontario's Return to Sport COVID19 Guidelines found on baseballontario.ca, and we have placed a copy on our website westhillbaseball.com.
The only way we make this season successful is when our community comes together and we work to implement these Return to Sport COVID19 Guidelines. We ask that all members and registrants read and review these Guidelines, and to all work to help provide our kids with a SAFE baseball experience this summer.
To that end we have already had some virtual Question and Answer Sessions for Coaches/Volunteers and for Umpires and their parents.
We will have 2 more Q&A virtual sessions:
1 Q&A Coaches/Volunteers (and for anyone just interested to help out!) Friday June 4, 2021 @730pm. Please email email@example.com for link.
2 Q&A Town Hall Friday June 11, 2021 @ 730pm. For everyone, Coaches, volunteers, parents, kids, dogs, etc. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for link.
We hope to see and meet everyone soon,
on behalf of the West Hill Baseball League Executive Board.
