NYBA Actions In Wake of COVID-19

UPDATE: [May 25, 2020] While the Province of Ontario announced last week the opening of parks and sports facilities, the directive refers only to individual sports such as golf and cycling and not to team sports such as baseball. 

In light of the announcement, Baseball Ontario has extended the suspension of all in-person activities until June 15th, 2020. The decision will be revisited by the directors of Baseball Ontario on June 11th.  

In a 3-part video statement, Ed Quinlan, President of Baseball Ontario stated: "Our promise to you remains the same, we will continue to plan, prepare and remain agile to have some form of baseball in 2020."

[March 13, 2020]

The North York Baseball Association puts the safety of players, coaches and their families at the centre of all decisions. Under these new world-wide conditions, our organization has taken the following measures to protect our families and mitigate any potential risk. 

 >> All rep team practices have been suspended until March 27th, when we will reassess the situation.

 >> House League is still on schedule to begin the first week of May. 

 >> All in-person umpire and coaching clinics have been suspended.  The OBA will be making online training available. 

We will be looking at Baseball Ontario for leadership and following the guidelines stipulated by Toronto Public Health and Public Health Ontario

At this time, it's next to impossible to predict timelines and so we will be reviewing things on a weekly, even daily basis. Updates will be added to our website, Facebook Page and Instagram Feed.

We want to thank our parents, coaches, umpires and most of all our players for their patience. We are just as eager to get out on the field as you! 

Let's Play Ball!
