COVID-19-UPDATE

UPDATE MAY 15 2020 - Planning For the Future - IMPORTANT UPDATE


In light of the ongoing COVID pandemic and recommendations by the Ontario government, Thornhill Baseball is announcing the following changes in regards to our Youth House League Program:

#1) After careful considerations, the standard 2020 house league program is being canceled. All registered players in Youth House league will receive a 100% refund on June 1st.

#2) Thornhill Baseball will continue to monitor developments within the Province and will plan for the possibility of a modified & shorted season of games, practices and clinics for as many divisions as possible. Details in regards to our season plans, information you will need to make a decision as to whether or not you want to play and the instructions to re-register will be both emailed and posted on our web site.

Please note that the above cancellation is limited to our Youth House League at this time given that Youth House League is primarily made up of younger players where the challenge of maintaining social distancing is harder to achieve.

At this point in time, Thornhill Baseball continues to plan for a Select, Rep and Men’s House league season to begin later in the summer when the Province says it is safe to resume regular outdoor activities.

On behalf of Thornhill Baseball, I would like to recognize all the volunteers who came forward to coach and support the development of our summer program. We will be in touch as we plan for ways to get players back on the field. I also want to give a thank you to all the parents and players for choosing Thornhill Baseball; we look forward to seeing you all on the field as soon as possible.

Sincerely,
Chris McNeil – VP House League

UPDATE MARCH 17 2020


With the fluid situation around COVID-19, we fully appreciate that it has changed the daily routines of each and every one of us.

Based on the guidance of York Region Public Health, the Board of Thornhill Baseball recently made the decision to suspend all in-person league activities, winter workouts, practices and umpiring and coaching clinics until April 3rd. This was communicated to the impacted individuals by email.

More importantly, at this point, our plans have not changed and we are actively working diligently and gearing up to run our regular activities for all House League, Rep and Select programs when our season starts in May.

As the situation continues to evolve, we are committed to keep all impacted members of the baseball community up to date on our plans.
