Canadian Tire Jumpstart Grant Recipient

The Lethbridge Little League Baseball Association would like to take a moment to express our gratitude to The Canadian Tire Jumpstart program. We recently were announced as a recipient of the Jumpstart Sport Relief Fund for $15,000.  The funds approved will go toward baseball program improvements and safety measures in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.

 

As most of you are aware, Covid-19 has had a major financial impact on many non-profit organizations. These were unpredicted and unforeseen costs. In an effort to ensure we were able to proceed with our 2020 and 2021 seasons, LLLBA incurred additional costs associated with PPE and training related to the use of this PPE.  These purchases were made to enhance safety and limit the spread of Covid-19 during our baseball season. Grant money will be allocated to further training and the purchase of PPE for next season.

 

In addition, we have identified safety concerns with the dugouts at two of our diamonds. We will dedicate a large portion of these funds to rectify the safety concerns associated with the use of these dugouts. Renovations to the roofs are in the planning phase and we hope to have work complete prior to the 2021 season to enhance the on-field experience for players and coaches.

 

In closing, the generous grant from Canadian Tire is invaluable and will allow our organization to move forward with future seasons in the safest way possible.

 

 

Thank you.

Parents and Coaches:  Just a few reminders as the season has officially started at all levels.

 

  • Each player must have hands sanitized before entering and leaving the field of play. The coaching staff of each team will assist with this.
  • All shared equipment must be disinfected after each use by the coaching staff including: bats, catchers gear, and any ball leaving the field of play
  • No sunflower seeds at any time.
  • Please do not bring food onto the playing field or into the dugout.
  • Players will provide their own water.  No sharing please.
  • Each child/participant is required to have their own glove and helmet. There will be no helmets shared between kids
  •  Ultimately the responsibility remains with parents - please don’t come if your children are sick! 

Thank you for your cooperation.  The season is off to a great start, and it is so exciting to see baseball being played across the city.
