April 7, 2020 Coronavirus Update

By Gridley M. Lossi, Jr., Legal Director, BAA, 04/07/20, 6:00PM EDT


Boxford Athletic Association, Inc. update on the Covid-19 Pandemic on community sporting activities.

As the weather warms, and where we would traditionally be in the midst of practices and preparing for games the B.A.A. appreciates everyone’s patience as we collectively work through the unprecedented challenges caused by the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Based on the ongoing need to continue to support the common sense “social distancing” protocols, the status of the 2020 spring season remains unclear.  The B.A.A. holds out hope that a spring season might still occur.  The B.A.A. is working with our local authorities and will adhere to Federal, State and Local guidance on the best practices to mitigate against the Pandemic.

Currently, State and County program authorities are meeting regularly to assess the viability of a 2020 spring sports season.  Such spring season will undoubtedly be different from past seasons.  The season may be shortened, or occur on different timelines, however, it is a very real possibility that the 2020 spring season will be lost.

The B.A.A. is meeting regularly to assess the situation, and in accordance with State and County program authorities and Federal, State and Local guidance on the best practices, will determine how to proceed moving forward.

The B.A.A. remains committed to keeping Boxford updated as information affects our sporting community.
