The Executive of the Belleville Minor Softball Association met recently to discuss the 2020 season and what our options are moving forward in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The difficult decision was made to cancel all House League divisions and Select Teams for the 2020 season.
Belleville Minor Softball has a responsibility to help protect the health of our players, coaches, umpires, spectators, volunteers and their families. It is evident the restrictions and logistics of operating a fun, competitive and meaningful season are no longer favourable to our players and volunteers. However, the Executive will consider allowing skill sessions following guidelines and restrictions put in place by the City of Belleville, The Province, OASA and Softball Canada once we can provide something that is safe, fun and meeting all precautionary measures.
We understand that everyone will be disappointed not playing the sport we all love. We are just as disappointed. However, it is the right time to make this decision to allow for our players and families to plan other activities as restrictions begin to be lifted.
We continue to wish all good health and look forward to playing with our friends and teammates on the diamond next season.
All sponsors and paid registrants will be contacted in the coming weeks by a member of our board.
We thank you for your understanding and continued support. #playball
