April 15, 2020 – UPDATE

I wish I had some good or any news at all at this point but nothing as of yet. I will say that the Vernon Baseball board remains very optimistic that at some point between now and when we are covered back up with snow we will put on a baseball season for the kids.

Our typical Spring season is 8 weeks long and runs roughly from April 15- June 20th. It is the intention of the board to put together a season regardless of when we are able to start it. This may end up being a partial season or a season that runs into summer/fall. We don't know at this point. What we do know is we have a great group of board members, parents, volunteers and coaches wanting to get out there as soon as possible and we will be ready to do that once we are given the all clear. If it ends up being a shortened season families will get a portion of their registration back. For example, if we only have a season for 4 weeks, our intention would be that families will receive half of their registration fess back. At the end of the day, we will adjust our fees to at least match what we are able to put together for a season.

In the meantime the refund situation remains the same. For any family who wants a refund, we will give a full refund. All you need to do is email registrar@vernonbaseball.com with your child’s name that was registered and we will process refunds weekly.

Again, we truly appreciate your understanding and support during these times. I wish you and your family the best. Stay healthy. Stay safe. Play catch with your kids outside.

All the Best,

Michael Sanfilippo
President
Vernon Baseball Association



March 18, 2020 – UPDATE - Suspension of Baseball Activities Indefinitely

Vernon Minor Baseball is suspending our baseball activities indefinitely at this time.

Today Baseball BC has extended the suspension of all sanctioned in person baseball activities indefinitely given the heightened concerns over the potential spread of COVID-19. Baseball BC sanctioned activities include but are not limited to, all tournaments, practices, games, coach and umpire education and team building activities. The intent of this suspension is to limit situations of close physical interaction. We and Baseball BC will be re-evaluating over the next number of weeks and issue further direction as soon as we can.

The COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic is rapidly changing the way that we, as global citizens, think, act, gather, learn, and live our daily lives. That includes how we play baseball.

This decision is difficult, but it is our duty to help society follow social distancing protocols (keeping at least 6 feet apart and avoiding congregate settings). It is our hope that by doing this, we will all play a small, but important part in flattening the curve in the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. We will continue to monitor the situation and take our guidance from public health officials, the government, and Baseball Canada.

VBA is committed to doing the best we can for the safety and well-being of our players, families, volunteers, and fans.

Our hope is that we are still able to provide a spring season of baseball for the kids at some point this year (that may be in June and July) but at this time we do not know what that will look like. We will continue to provide information as soon as we can.

The Marshall Field indoor batting cage is closed until further notice.

Thank you for your understanding and support.

Michael Sanfilippo
President
Vernon Baseball Association
