It is with deep regret and disappointment that Soo Minor Baseball Association officially announces the cancellation of the 2020 Baseball Season. 

While this was a very difficult decision to make, we join other local organizations across Ontario in coming to this decision. Like many, we hoped and continued to plan for a delayed season this year.  However, it has become clear that it is no longer feasible for many reasons, including our top priority of ensuring the health and safety of all players, coaches, umpires, executive members and their families at this time.

Although we have cancelled the season, we have left the door open to the possibility of small group baseball clinics and camps later this summer as provincial restrictions loosen.  Any events will be posted on our website at www.sooball.com and on our Facebook page.   

Please be advised that all registration fees will be refunded 100%.  As we are currently working with our online merchant, please allow until August 1, 2020 before contacting SMBA regarding the status of your refund. 

As an Executive and an organization, we share your disappointment and wish you a healthy and safe summer. We hope you'll play catch, take some swings and come back for a fantastic 2021 season with Soo Minor Baseball Association. 

Sincerely,

SMBA Executive

Regions in Stage Two of the Provincial Reopening Plan are permitted to resume outdoor team sports (including baseball), if physically distanced, for training only and no scrimmages or games, but must still respect the gathering limit of 10 persons at this time.

Following review by medical and legal advisors, the Return to Sport Protocol has been finalized and approved  by  the  Baseball Ontario  Board  of Management, as  of  June  11,  2020.   

Member Organizations  and  all  participants  must  familiarize  themselves  with  this  Protocol  prior  to resuming in‐person activities.   Member  organizations  should  either  adopt  the  Baseball  Ontario  Protocol  as  their  own  or supplement it with their own local protocol.  A Declaration of Compliance and either a Release of Liability, Waiver of Claims and Indemnity Agreement or an Informed Consent and Assumption of Risk Agreement, depending on the age of the person, are required from participants.
