Re: Baseball BC’s Return to Sport Update
On July 1, 2021 the BC Government will move to Step 3 in the British Columbia Restart Plan. This movement allows sport to further ease restrictions and increase the number of spectators allowed. As such Baseball BC is advancing notice that the limit of spectators now permitted within the sport of Baseball is 5000 per field (or 50% of listed capacity, which ever is greater) as per the BC Government announcement On June 29, 2021.
We also understand that each municipality has potentially different restrictions and limitations for bookings/activity, therefore, please work with your local cities/municipalities to adhere to any requirements to ensure you are providing a safe environment for all participants.
We would also like to ensure that all organizations defer to their provincial level member organization on programming decisions or sanctioning, should it be required.
We would also like to again remind that some participants may need additional time to fully return to traditional programming. It is required that all participants and member organizations work collaboratively to ensure all stakeholders do so safely and when they are ready.
Please direct any questions you may have on this topic to Baseball BC Executive Director David Laing at 604-586-3312.
