Use TeamSnap for Covid-19 pregame self-screening
3 months ago

As of the week of July 19, we’re switching to TeamSnap’s Covid-19 self-assessment tool for all players.

Be you a full-timer or a spare, it’s critical that you immediately a) accept the TeamSnap invitation you received the week of July 12 and b) starting July 24, complete the platform’s pregame self-screening form BEFORE—again, BEFORE—you come to the field every week.

That means as soon as you get up Saturday morning, as the feature goes live only eight hours before game time. To play, you absolutely must have first completed your self-screening at home.

The pregame/pre-arrival screening is a directive of Ottawa Public Health, and the BASL is bound by it under its field rental permit with the Gloucester Hornets.

Thanks for your cooperation. Merci de votre collaboration.

11 v 11 now in the works for Outdoor 2021, starting July 17
4 months ago

With virtually all restrictions lifted on team sports such as soccer in Step 2 of Ontario’s reopening June 30, we’ve decided to give our traditional six-team , 11 v 11 format a fresh go, as of July 17. The Registration button above should be active late in the evening of June 29 (the night of this post).

Pre-registered players are guaranteed a spot if they complete their official sign-up by midnight July 7. We have roughly 10 full-time spots left, and need 10-12 more Alumni for that informal kick-about offering to go ahead.

Remember that you need to both complete the regular registration form and make the full payment to secure your spot.

We will keep a waiting list as well. Cheers to all.

 
July 17 target date for 7v7 play
4 months ago

If the provincial government and Ontario Soccer give the go-ahead in early July, the BASL will run a nine-game 7v7 league from July 17 to September 25 inclusively.

The current plan calls for eight teams of 12 including the keeper (88 outfielders and 8 keepers), as well as an Alumni kick-about group if we get enough registrants (16).

As of June 22, we have 91 outfielders pre-registered, so three more than the 88 needed. We’re still short one goalkeeper.

Here’s the link to sign up for the waiting list: https://ba-soccer.us16.list-manage.com/track/click?u=ea12247e04b5e5aa5605c360b&id=29fa80bf9b&e=dcb567bde1 (“Registration” above has been de-activated).

Details about restrictions (bubbles, calling in spares, interchanging keepers, etc.) are still pending.

As usual, the fixtures are slated for the Shefford-Potvin Sports Fields in Beacon Hill North.

Stay tuned for updates.

 
Outdoor 2021: scenarios being studied
5 months ago

With just under 100 players “pre-registered” for this summer as of late May, the BA is examining various playing scenarios, with the hope of hosting some sort of footie by late July or early August.

We’re waiting for the Ontario government and Ontario Soccer to issue return-to-play rules in early June and will decide on a format and fee then, if circumstances allow.

It’s obvious that vaccinations are the cornerstone here. If too many people refuse to get the vaccine and provincial targets aren’t met, we’ll ALL pay the price: continued restrictions.

A BA Update will go out to the membership between June 4 and 8, hopefully with concrete news and details about our return to the pitch.

Please stay tuned. Merci de votre patience et bon courage.
