2020 Season Update

First, I hope everyone is safe, healthy, and managing in these troubling times.  I'm sure some of you have been wondering what is going on with baseball.  Like a lot of others, since March Baseball Nova Scotia has been in close contact with health authorities trying to understand and react to the situation.  As an association, we have not been able to pass along any news until now because there was really nothing to say.  Last week, BNS submitted a return to play proposal to the province and it was accepted last Friday.  This would be a multi-phase program with Phase 1 simply being getting some kids on the field for practices.  The program comes with a lot of requirements for social distancing and other things to try and prevent the spread of disease.  The West Hants Baseball Association Board of Directors has carefully reviewed the requirements and came to the decision that we do not think the association is in a position to be able to safely offer a baseball program at this time based on the requirements we would have to implement.  This was not an easy decision to reach and a lot of thought went into it.  However, in the end we felt we would be downloading a lot of responsibility onto our coaches and other volunteers, as well as the board itself.  We take safety as our # 1 priority - for kids, parents, grandparents & our community as a whole and we felt moving forward did not align with that priority.  We also feel that a lot of families are still dealing with more important matters at this time and baseball may not be a priority right now.  I hope everyone understands the amount of thought and effort that went into this decision.  It was not made lightly.  We have heard from several other associations who have made the same decision.

 

I hope everyone continues to stay safe and is able to get some quality family time over the coming few months.

Take Care Everyone :)
