LWF Return to Play – Phase 1

Baseball Nova Scotia has announced that Phase 1 of the Return to Baseball has been approved by the Provincial Gov’t.  In summary, that means that associations are able to hold training and development sessions/practices with a maximum of 10 people on the field with two of them having to be coaches (so 8 players).  There are some conditions that players, coaches and associations must meet in order to participate and all of those details can be found on the BNS website.

The LWF and Tri County Executive have reviewed the documents and procedures, and we are happy to announce the following:

  • Tri County Rangers competitive teams will start tryouts somewhere around June 19th.  More info will be communicated once we have the exact schedule in place.  If you haven’t registered and paid yet, the cut off is June 13th so please go to lwfbaseball.com to register.  Please understand that only Phase 1 has been approved and we may never get to Phase 2 which would include games.  This means it could possibly be only practices/development for the year.
  • The final registration deadline for house league is June 25th.  Again please understand that this may only be practices if Phase 2 is not approved.  If we do not get to Phase 2 we will issue a partial refund.  There are costs associated with field prep, gear, disinfectants/cleaners, insurance etc. that we need to cover.  We anticipate the costs to be $50-$100 per player so if no games are played we would refund the difference. If for any reason we are not able to execute phase 1, a full refund will be issued.
  • For our Novice and Rally Cap players, until the maximum number of people in a public gathering is increased enough to safely hold the sessions, we will put those divisions on hold.

If anyone who has already registered and paid does not want to participate in the 2020 season, please email justin.baker@saint-gobain.com by June 25th and we will issue a full refund.

Before anyone can step onto the field, a waiver form produced by Baseball Nova Scotia will need to be filled out and sent to dfoster@barrettlumber.com. The waiver can be downloaded here BNS_Waiver.
