Baseball Registration Info – 2020
COVID-19 UPDATE – MARCH 21, 2020
As we all work through this unprecedented Novel Coronaviris Pandemic, the Executive of Northeast Zone Sports Council and the Baseball Committee wish you and your family health and safety. Keep well, watch some old sports videos, play your fill of video games, stay in touch with family and friends on the phone, work on a long-forgotten craft and catch up on some of those things we never seem to have enough time for.
Currently NEZ Baseball has 315 participants registered online. We are leaving the online registrations open and still encouraging registrations at this point. You don’t have to pay the fee when you register – select e-transfer, cash or cheque. If you have registered and paid already and there is no ball this season we will refund all of your paid fees.
We are all parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles. We want healthy, happy kids and once the danger has passed we want to get our kids back to their regular activities as soon as we can. Back to school and back into sports. That is why we are not prepared at this time to call the whole season off. We are just waiting. The situation is very fluid. Things change daily, hourly. Perhaps a late start, a shortened season, a season that goes into the summer months…..
The latest from Baseball Alberta is: MARCH 20, 2020 UPDATE
Baseball Alberta is suspending all sanctioned activities until April 30, 2020.
We have been in discussions with Baseball Canada and the other provinces regarding the impact of the COVID-19 on the upcoming 2020 baseball season. We have been collectively considering the best information available from our national and provincial health authorities on how best to manage activities in this unprecedented time. Baseball Canada has advised that all sanctioned baseball activities are suspended until at least April 30, 2020.
Baseball Alberta recognizes that this decision will result in many questions regarding the status of the 2020 house league / community and competition seasons. While we do not have all the answers to these questions, Baseball Alberta is working with its members and peers to determine the best path forward with protecting the health and safety of our participants – players, coaches, and umpires – as our highest priority.
For those of you requesting a refund at this time, we can refund your fee less the $35.00 admin fee as is our policy. Email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate the name of the player(s).
