COVID-19 Club Resources

Further to the easing of the restrictions announced by the Victorian Government on Sunday, 18 October, Baseball Victoria continues to consult with Sport and Recreation Victoria about the details of these updates and how they will apply to baseball.

In summary, the same restrictions currently in place will apply to community sport until the next easing of restrictions on Sunday, 1 November 2020.

On 1 November 2020, junior baseballers will be able to return to full training, while senior baseballers will be able to return to non-contact training.  This date is subject to change and Premier Daniel Andrews has today suggested it is possible this date may be moved forward seven days with a continued reduction of daily case numbers. We will prepare for both options, but at this stage, the 1 November 2020 date is set.

BASEBALL VICTORIA RETURN TO ACTIVITY/RETURN TO PLAY PLANS

The Baseball Victoria Return to Activity/Play Plan is a comprehensive guide for all clubs, members and local authorities on how baseball will recommence.  

These mandatory conditions are based on the AIS Framework for Rebooting Sport in a COVID-19 environment and guidelines provided by Sport & Recreation Victoria (SRV) in correlation with the latest Government advice. 

It is essential that all clubs review and implement these conditions before returning to activity. They contain strict boundaries for the number of players/staff, types of activities, facility restrictions and safety measures required to safely conduct on-field training. 

Clubs need to seek permission of council in order to use fields and access facilities before any training can take place.

Baseball Victoria continues to work with the Victorian Government, SRV and councils to ensure that all clubs can return to their normal facilities as soon as possible.

The Return to Activity conditions will be amended in accordance with any future government directives, the latest version of the document, will be contained on this website.
