2020 Eastern Canadian Championships Cancelled Due To Covid-19

May 22, 2020

The Eastern Canadian Softball Committee has made the difficult, yet necessary decision to cancel all 2020 Eastern Canadian Softball Championships due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

U12 Girls (August 27-30) – NS
U12 Boys (August 27-30) – PEI
U14 Girls (August 27-30) – PEI
U14 Boys (August 20-23) – NS
U16 Girls (August 27-30) – NL
U16 Boys (August 13-16) – NB
U19 Women’s (August 27-30) – ON
U19 Men’s (August 6-9) – N/A
Intermediate Women’s (August 6-9) – ON
Intermediate Men’s (September 11-13) – NB

The 10 scheduled tournaments were all set to take place during the month of August. However, after extensive discussions and careful consideration among our executive committee, we arrived at the decision to cancel all championships scheduled for this year. The health and safety of the athletes, coaches, officials, spectators, tournament organizers, and volunteers is our number 1 priority. In addition, logistical concerns such as venue availability, adequate training opportunities and travel / accommodation bookings were also all factors that were considered.

The Eastern Canadian Softball Executive Committee would like to sincerely thank the communities that were scheduled to host a championship this year for their understanding, cooperation, and full support on this decision.
