JUNIOR WOMEN'S NATIONAL TEAM COMBINES CANCELLED
Softball Canada regretfully announces that the Junior Women’s National Team Combines scheduled for mid-August in Brampton, Saskatoon and Surrey have been cancelled.
While we were originally hopeful about staging these combines, after continually monitoring the COVID-19 situation across the country and consulting with medical professionals and local officials we are not comfortable proceeding. The health and safety of our players, their families and our Coaches and volunteers is paramount in all our decision making. The decision has been driven by the inter-provincial travel required for some people, troublesome COVID-19 spikes in some parts of the country and challenges with various jurisdictional approaches to COVID-19, among other issues.
Identification camps for the 2021 U-17 Americas Qualifier team will now be planned for the Spring of 2021, conditions allowing. The status of the U-18 World Cup, tentatively scheduled for March, 2021 is currently being reviewed by the WBSC, with a decision expected by early October, 2020.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
