Firstly, thank you for your understanding and patience with the ever-changing landscape that sport and the wider community is facing in respect to COVID-19.
We know that the decision on Saturday was a difficult one, however we believe that we made the right decision. The timing we knew would impact many clubs that were playing at the time and this was taken into account, however we hope that you all understand that the decision was made for the greater good of the Victorian softball community.
It is our strong recommendation that all Victorian softball training, games, events and programs are suspended until further notice.
Our recommendation is based on medical advice from professionals in the health industry. Many sports are making the same decisions and some sports are choosing to follow the direction of Government.
We will continue to monitor reliably sourced information and send out updates as necessary.
As a result of this decision the Open and Under 18 State Championships will be postponed until the start of the 2020/21 season.
