Return To Play


Updated May 10,2021:

Baseball Manitoba has released Version 4 of our Return to Play plan. Currently, we will remain in Phase 1 - Training until June 1, 2021. Phase 1 - Training has been adjusted to match up with the current Health Orders.
 
Return to Play Adjustments:
  • Organized baseball activities may proceed in a "group of 5" or less participants. Coaches, players, and Health and Safety Coordinators are included in the "group of 5."
  • Spectators are NOT allowed
  • Indoor training is NOT allowed
 
Baseball Manitoba will continue to monitor the Public Health Orders. We are grateful that we are able to continue to offer training for our players. At this time, we remain hopeful that baseball competition will commence this spring and summer.
 
As always, the health and safety of people in sport, including players, coaches, umpires, spectators, volunteers, and the public, is of the utmost importance to Baseball Manitoba. We kindly remind everyone to follow Manitoba Health's fundamentals in combating COVID-19. We will work diligently to keep it a fun and safe environment for our members and the public.

 

 

 

Baseball Manitoba is constantly updating. Please be sure to stay updated on their website Baseball Manitoba

 

 

UPDATED April 21,2021

With the current provincial health orders in place, outdoor sports practices are still permitted to occur. Carman Minor Ball believes that with the measures outlined in the baseball and softball Return to Play documents, all our athletes and coaches should be able to safely train as teams over the coming weeks.

We understand that as the season is just getting underway, teams are wishing to meet and appoint coaching staffs, managers, health and safety coordinators. IF you are planning on meeting as a team, please respect the gathering limits in place around the province. Do not send more than one member of each household and keep any sort of team meetings outdoors, physically distanced and brief.

 Please respect that only 10 spectators are permitted at diamonds during practices. Be sure everyone spectating at ball diamonds is properly distanced and not viewing from the same areas (i.e. bleachers or on the same fenceline)

 

Thanks for your adherence and understanding.

Baseball Manitoba 2021 Return to Play Update:

 

Due to the most recent Manitoba Public Health Orders, sanctioned indoor baseball training may commence at 25 percent capacity of the entire facility. The limit to the training surface is 10 participants, or less, depending on the size of the facility. This excludes coaches and safety personnel. The Baseball Manitoba Indoor Training Checklist and Example Practice Plan outlines expectations of the facility, participants, and organizers. Here are some key factors:

  • Always follow Facility signage, rules and regulations
  • Always Physical Distance (2m).
  • Masks MUST be worn by ALL.
  • 10 participants maximum in the training space, or less, depending on size.
  • If space allows, 2 groups of 10 may train in the same space. The space MUST be divided in half and there can be NO contact between the 2 groups. (example: hockey rink)
  • Sanitizing Hands and Equipment is a MUST.
  • ALL Participants MUST be registered for the 2020 or 2021 Baseball Season.
  • Activities MUST be operated by a registered and NCCP trained or certified baseball coach.

Spring is on its way and outdoor baseball is drawing nearer. Baseball Manitoba has drafted and posted a Return to Play Document that will be discussed with the membership at the virtual AGM on March 14. The most current draft shows outdoor training beginning as early as April 15 and Competition beginning as early as May 15. These dates remain fluid at this time and will be adjusted based on Manitoba Health recommendations.

 

As always, the health and safety of people in sport, including players, coaches, umpires, spectators, volunteers, and the public, is of the utmost importance to Baseball Manitoba. We are excited to see baseball training resume in Manitoba and will work diligently to keep it a fun, safe environment for our members and the public.
