COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update for Baseball in

June 10 – RAMP REGISTRATION – new for 2020

Bonivital Baseball Fans,

Hopefully you heard that Bonivital Baseball is proceeding with a modified season for 2020.
By now, you should have contacted your home community club with your intentions for the season. If you were already registered and wish to play, that is great, but there is a 2nd step to register. You will need to click on your home club below and follow the link to register with Baseball Manitoba. This is a mandatory step and you will not be allowed on the field for tryouts or placed on a roster without being in the system.


If you were registered previously with NGCC, you should have received a waiver by email. You can log into RAMP below to check your waiver with your previous account.

We understand if you have chosen to withdraw and hope to see you next year. Please contact your home club to withdraw ASAP.

If you are also interested in coaching this year, please use the RAMP links for your home club and register as Coach/Staff member.

Any questions, please reach out to your Baseball Convenor .


June 5, 2020 – from Bonivital Baseball

Visit our TRYOUT page for more information as well.

Bonivital Baseball is happy to outline our steps to return to the baseball field for the upcoming 2020 Baseball season.

Step 1

Registration reopening:

All community clubs within Bonivital will be reopening their baseball registration from Friday June 5 to Wednesday June 10 inclusive. This will allow new players who didn’t have a chance previously to register to do so and also allow any player to withdraw from this year’s season and obtain a refund from their community club. Please visit your community club’s website or contact them directly to discuss refunds. If you have already registered and wish to play ball this year, there is very little to do.

On June 11th, Bonivital Baseball will meet again to review the final participant numbers and start to put teams and schedules together. Rally Cap, Grand Slam and players wishing to play community club A Ball will be the first groups to be organized. We hope to have Rally Cap and Grand Slam seasons start as soon as possible. A reminder that we still need volunteer coaches at all levels. Bonivital will work with the coaches to ensure that they can be as successful as possible with this fun league and also understand the changes that Covid-19 has made to our game. Coaching requirements have been adjusted for this season. A Respect In Sport course is all that is needed.

Mandatory waiver agreements have been created by Baseball Manitoba and are required prior to any ball player stepping on any field in Manitoba. All baseball players in Manitoba are required to have their name entered into the RAMP system. All community club’s websites should have their specific RAMP link on their website. The Waiver Agreement will be available within the RAMP website under your player’s registration information. Baseball Manitoba is attempting to have this form up and running by June 5 at 2 PM. If there are issues, they will be contacting the association with further details.

Step 2

Tryouts for AAA & AA Players:

Bonivital has confirmed that tryouts for U11 AA, U13 AAA & AA, U15 AAA & AA, U18 AAA & AA will be held on June 20 and 21 at the Southdale Community Centre.

We have adjusted the way we complete tryouts to be as efficient as possible and give the players the best opportunity to show off their skills.

Each age level will have a 4 hour tryout slot. AAA and AA players will tryout together and all players will be evaluated by the AAA coaches and by Bonivital qualified evaluators.

Players will not be told that day what team they were successful in making. Some form of contact will be made with the player 24-48 hours following the tryouts.

Please review the Bonivital Tryout page on this website for further details. This will include:

– Dates and times
– New tryout costs & payment requirements
– Covid-19 safety requirements

Step 3

Team/coaching formation:

Following tryouts, Bonivital will endeavor to put all AAA, AA and A ball teams together with their coaches. At that point, teams can hit their fields to prepare for the upcoming schedule. We are working closely with Winnipeg Minor Baseball to create a schedule for all ages. This may be a work in process and may come out in stages. The 2020 Baseball Season (games) will start on July 6th and end on August 21st.


2020 Winnipeg Minor Baseball Season

As we are all aware, this baseball season will be like no other. I believe that we in Manitoba are extremely fortunate as we are only the 2nd province in Canada to move forward with a baseball season at this point. Unfortunately with that come sacrifices such as:

• All National, Western and Provincial Championships have been cancelled.
• There will be no tournaments allowed.
• Playoffs for some ages will be cancelled
• Standings will not be kept at some age levels

The key objective for all baseball players will be development; trying to get as many players on the field as possible, developing their skills and having lots of fun doing it.

Please continue to visit your community club, Bonivital Baseball and Baseball Manitoba’s websites for additional updates and information. Your patience is appreciated as information and next steps continue to evolve.


Let’s have a great season!

Bob Sawchyn
President, Bonivital Baseball
