GMBA Return To Sport
On Thursday May 20th, the Government of Ontario announced a reopening plan.
The GMBA has been optimistic about a return to baseball approach, and has been preparing for a start to the 2021 season.
In line with the Government of Ontario reopening plan, and Baseball Ontario's return to sport guidelines, the GMBA will return for 2021!
This year will not look like past years, but we know how important it is to get the kids involved and on the diamond again. Please review the plan for 2021 carefully.
What will 2021 look like?
Most importantly, we need to see registration numbers increase. Registration will be open until 11:59PM JUNE 13TH 2021. Once registration closes, we will then evaluate which divisions can move forward.
Registration will be limited. So please do not hesitate to register, as your child will miss out.
Beginning July 5th 2021 until July 26th 2021, we will host DEVELOPMENT WEEKS ONLY. This means based on the guidelines, there will be a group no larger than 25 at one time on a diamond. A dedicated instructor will be assigned to each diamond, and will facilitate drill stations in which participants will rotate through.
Beginning July 26th 2021, games will be scheduled up to and including August 27th 2021.
There will be a reduced cost. Those who have already paid will see a 50% refund. Those who still need to register will need to use the code COVID at checkout to get 50% off. For those who have already registered and paid, please allow time for processing of your refunds. All refunds are guaranteed by August 27th 2021.
Family discounts will not be applied to registrations for 2021 registrations. Those who already received a family discount will receive their refund with the discount removed. Processing fees will remain the same.
There will be NO UNIFORMS distributed this season. Players may wear old ones (if they have them and they fit), or whatever outdoor clothing they prefer. When games begin, coaches may ask their teams to wear a particular t-shirt colour.
With the reduced cost, we will eliminate closing day, and picture day. Our main goal is to get kids back on the diamond, and work towards a full season for 2022, back to past procedures.
Please remember that all the above guidelines and procedures are based on the current Government of Ontario reopening plan.
