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.
