Following Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews’ announcements made this afternoon on the return to stage three lockdown restrictions in metropolitan Melbourne, Baseball Victoria confirms the shutdown of all baseball activity in the metropolitan Melbourne and the Mitchell Shire for the next six weeks, starting at 11:59 PM on Wednesday, 8 July 2020.
This shutdown will encompass the Baseball Victoria Aces Academy, meaning no in-person training sessions may take place for at least the next six weeks.
Baseball Victoria will be finalising our face-to-face sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday before the stage three lockdown of metropolitan Melbourne and the Mitchell Shire commences at 11:59 PM on Wednesday, 8 July 2020.
We will work with Academy athletes to provide at-home training via our technology partners and using online video sessions for the next six weeks, and we will continue to review how we are going to return to in-person training once lockdown restrictions ease.
Baseball Victoria understands how the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is challenging for our community, and we appreciate the patience and cooperation of our Academy athletes as we make the necessary adjustments to our program schedule.
If you have any questions please contact Baseball Victoria, with full contact details available HERE.
As a reminder, the COVIDSafe app is now available and will allow authorities to quickly track and control the spread of COVID-19. Please consider downloading the app to help save lives, protect the community and get baseball back as soon as possible. Click HERE to learn more.
