Manitoba Girls Baseball Summary Report 2020

     COVID-19 coloured the Manitoba’s Girls Programming for the 2020 season.  Kudos go out to our coaches for trying to put some meaningful purpose in a shortened and difficult season.

     Thanks to James for his tirelessly valuable promotion and contribution into scheduling a positive “girls” basic training program in a several satellite locations.  Manitoba Girls Baseball offered sessions in Winnipeg, Morden, and Brandon as a development program for girls ages 6-12.

     Unfortunately, during to COVID, everything came to an abrupt halt in April when baseball was put on Hiatus during the Pandemic outbreak until the “Return to Play.”

Nationals was canceled for both 21-U and the Senior Women’s Championships, 16U Invitational Tournament as well as the Girls 14U Westerns Championships.

     Girls in Seniors and 21U programing started last Christmas break with Open Practices at Sport for Life Building.  They also held two dates in December as workouts and resumed practice and an ID evaluation process with the girls once they were in the “Return to Play” phase.  

     A highlight for these two teams was to play four games in Shaw Park, where their coaches (Jeremy Culleton, Marc Bissonnette and Rod Ledochowski) had an opportunity to see and ID all the players while coaching for the weekend.

     This past winter (from January to March) the Southport Recreation Facility was booked for six (three hour) Sunday sessions.  Unfortunately, the April sessions were cancelled due to COVID-19. This year, those sessions were open for ladies thirteen years and up. 

     Looking forward, Southport has been tentatively booked for the upcoming January 2021.

     Once Baseball Manitoba put into action their “Return to Play” phase the girls thirteen and up were offered Summer Training Sessions twice a month in Portage at no cost to the participants. The girls gathered July 11th, July 26th, and August 8th.  Unfortunately, the area went into Code Red and the last session was cancelled

     It was a rewarding experience for both the girls and the coaches (Blaine Fortin, Roger Lanqlais, Kevin Booker, and Mike Krykewich) were amazing. A great learning experience for the girls!
