COVID-19 March 27 Update
Submitted By Dawn Sherk on Fri 03 27, 20
We hope that all AMSA players, parents, umpires, sponsors and volunteers are feeling and coping well with our current state of affairs with the COVID-19 crisis. We recognize that the events associated with COVID-19 have already started to have an impact on the programs we offer. The environment we work in is continually changing, and as such, we are considering all possible contingency plans for the 2020 ball season. We’re continuing to monitor the situation and receiving guidance from Softball Canada, Softball Ontario and all levels of Government.  Below is an update on where we are and what decisions have been made at the present time.


Season Update: We’ve not yet confirmed as to whether the softball season will start as planned in mid-May. As more information becomes available we’ll make decisions based on the time available for a full or partial season. 

Registration: We’re continuing to accept registrations in anticipation of a ball season. Based on the final decisions and duration of the season fee adjustments or refunds may be issued accordingly. 

Spring Training and Clinics: The Spring Training sessions that were scheduled for April 14, 15, 16, 19, 21 and 25 have been postponed until further notice. 

Umpire Clinics: All the Softball Ontario Junior/Intermediate Umpire clinics have been cancelled for 2020. Junior/Intermediate Umpires who were registered in 2019 will receive a one year exemption from clinic requirements. A link for the exemption form can be found on the AMSA website (under the Umpires tab). 

We hope this information is helpful. We will continue to make decisions as time passes and do our best to keep you apprised of any developments on an ongoing basis. We will provide another update before the end of April. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
