Current Covid-19 situation
*Please note that this challenge IS NOT to be conducted in person. Each week, each participant is responsible to train for the weekly test and submit his/her individual test performance video to his/her coach/adult with the help of a family member. At no time, teams should gather as a group to conduct training or test.
Training of any kind done in a group setting is prohibited by current legislation. To clarify, a group by definition, for these purposes, would be anyone not living in the same household who is training together, or anyone instructing a non-virtual training session.
Baseball Canada is also reminding all participants, that all activities must adhere to the Quarantine Act (Canada), as well as any provincial, municipal by-laws and facility rules in place related to COVID-19 physical distancing and public or private gatherings.
