Although there is a lot of uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, the Aurora King Baseball Association Board of Director’s want to provide an update on the possibility of a 2021 House League season.
The Board continues to work on plans for how to safely run a modified house league program in 2021, while following all provincial and York Region public health safety protocols and restrictions. Our #1 priority remains the safety of the players, coaches, volunteers and their families.
With uncertainty of what the season can look like, be it small skill development training groups or a full schedule of games and practices in cohorts, we are not prepared to open up registration and take money from our house league families at this point. HOWEVER, we do want to provide the opportunity for our community to reserve their spot in line for what we are able to open up registration.
If your child(ren) is interested in playing baseball in 2021, we strongly encourage you to register to be on our waiting list for the season. There is no obligation to accept a spot when we launch the summer program and registration, but it provides you the opportunity to choose when it does. We expect that we will have to limit the numbers to meet local and provincial restrictions so it will be important to reserve your spot.
This season may not look the same as previous years but with some modifications made to the House League program, we are optimistic that we will be able to provide a program that focuses on player development, sportsmanship and fun while also teaching the fundamental skills of baseball.
Signing up early will help our executive volunteers plan for the upcoming season so that when we are permitted to start the season, we are ready to go! At this time, we do not have a set date for the start of the season, but we will continue to provide updates as the summer approaches.
We thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we work towards the 2021 baseball season!
