Baseball Victoria Announces Return to Activity

Baseball Victoria COVID-19 Update Thursday 21 May 12:00 PM – Overall Update

Baseball Victoria has considered the federal update on the three-step framework for a COVID-Safe Australia as well as Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews’ announcements regarding the easing of restrictions across the state.

Baseball Victoria has worked diligently to obtain the necessary information from the Victorian Government and applicable authorities to move forward with organised baseball activity, and we are pleased to share the following changes:

“Victorians have been working hard to stop the spread of COVID-19, and we understand this has been a challenging time for everyone, including our Victorian baseball community,” Baseball Victoria CEO Kristie Middleton said. “While we welcome a slight easing of restrictions, we must remain vigilant and follow all guidelines, including social distancing and personal hygiene measures.”

Baseball Victoria has prepared a Return to Activity/Play Plan to assist baseball clubs throughout this transition. Click HERE to view the guidelines and other club resources.

Baseball Victoria has also added a Ramp Up to Play: Drills and Exercises Program to our website and BV TV YouTube channel to prepare athletes for a return to activity and play.

Baseball Victoria will continue to review how long these training options will be available before we return to competition play, and we are working with the winter associations to establish how the winter season could be moved into shorter timeframes and what the associated costs would be.

Baseball Victoria will continue to monitor the situation and consult with State and Federal Governments, Baseball Australia and our state and territory counterparts to establish the safest strategy for returning to baseball play.

If you have any questions please contact Baseball Victoria, with full contact details available HERE.

As a reminder, the COVIDSafe app is now available and will allow authorities to quickly track and control the spread of COVID-19. Please consider downloading the app to help save lives, protect the community and get baseball back as soon as possible. Click HERE to learn more.
