Surfers Paradise Baseball Club welcomes all returning and new junior members to our first preseason catch up and training this Sunday 13 September at 10am.
BBQ & PRESENTATION
After some general information for all, we will aim to get underway at 10:30am and finish with a BBQ around 12, where we look forward to catching up with everyone and presenting the awards from last season which thanks to covid we weren’t able to do at the time as planned.
Regarding covid safety, the club has a covid safe plan which requires all attendees to register their attendance. This can be done via downloading the “1breadcrumb” contact tracing app: https://apps.apple.com/au/app/1breadcrumb/id1510271269
or scanning the QR code on site with your smartphone. Registering your attendance is an absolute must for all. Our plan also requires all attendees to practice social distancing and exercise all the precautions that have become the norm. In this regard if you or your child is unwell please stay at home and we will catch up later. Our season is riding on everyone remaining extra vigilant to do the right thing. So please do not attend if you’ve got a cold.
This also includes BYO chairs, and players bringing their own gear (where possible).
