COVID-19 Updates – Return to Train and Play
Return to Training & Play
What a crazy past 12 months that we have had trying to navigate our day-to-day activities amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. Fortunately, in 2020, we were eventually able to play the great game that we love. We are all crossing our fingers that we are able to do the same in 2021. Last year proved that we can all do what it takes, and we will be ready to do so again.
We are planning to have a season in 2021, we just don’t fully understand what that will look like yet.
Once we receive further details from the Government of Saskatchewan and Saskatchewan Health Authority, we will be sure to keep our membership updated in this document.
For the time being, please see detailed below what is and is not currently allowed based on the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan.
Covid-19 Emergency Relief Funding
Don’t forget about the funding available below from the Government of Canada detailed below that can be applied for through Baseball Sask.
Sask Sport has been asked by the Federal Government to distribute the COVID-19 Emergency Support Funds to eligible Provincial Sport Organizations (PSO) in Saskatchewan. This email confirms that Baseball Sask was eligible to receive support from the Government of Canada.
These funds are provided only to organizations that are able to attest that they or their members have faced or anticipate financial hardship due to COVID-19 and can establish a demonstrated need over and above core funding.
Eligible funds and expenditures will be considered for the period of April 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021. Funds will be distributed to Minor Ball Clubs & Leagues (Minor Sport Organization – MSO) following the receipt of the attached Attestation Form. PSOs/MSOs will be required to follow-up on the use of these funds. However, should the Baseball Sask total funding amount approved for be distributed to our MSO’s prior to the March 31, 2021 deadline, there will most likely be no additional funds to follow.
NOTE: You cannot just claim a loss of revenue for funding. You must have actual expenses already paid with detailed receipts to back them up.
2021 Baseball Sask Registration Acknowledgement Waiver
All members will be required to sign off on the 2021 Baseball Sask Registration Acknowledgement Waiver in order to participate this season. This will need to be sign before stepping foot on a baseball diamond.
This Waiver will be emailed to all members in the RAMP Online Membership System. If you are not yet registered in RAMP, you will need to sign it when you register.
