Once again this year Cloverdale Minor Baseball is hosting the MLB Pitch, Hit and Run Competition.
Pitch, Hit & Run (PHR) invites boys and girls to have fun and demonstrate their skills, competing in pitching, hitting and running skills events. PHR participants can advance through four levels of competition, beginning from the local level, all the way to the 2016 MLB All-Star Game at Petco Park in San Diego California.
Come and show your baseball skills! This is a free event being held Saturday April 23 from 9:30 AM -11:30 AM, just show up and register at the Ballpark in one of four age groups: 7/8, 9/10, 11/12, 13/14. Age is determined as of July 17, 2016.
The event will be held on Diamond 2 (Hitting ball off of TEE), Diamond 3 (running from 2nd base to home) and Diamond 4 throwing five balls at a target.
Players can win in one or multiple events, and advance to the next level of competition, which will most likely be held at Nat Bailey Stadium in Vancouver.
If you have any questions contact Jimmy Vulcano at email@example.com.
We still have a number of open concession shifts for Sunday May 1 that need to be claimed. We recommend booking your shifts as early as possible, as late in the season there may not be DIBS spots available as others also scramble to find a spot.
To find an available volunteer slot, just log into the web site using the same account that you used to register your child, click on DIBS on the top menu bar, select the 2016 Spring Season, and filter by date or category.
The athlete must be linked to your account, or you will not see any DIBS sessions. For example, if your spouse registered your child under their account, they will have to claim a DIBS session so that it will be properly linked to the registration (but they can enter that you will be performing the volunteer duty). Please make sure that you link the DIBS session to your correct athlete, one per child.
The duties in the concession will include handling cash, food running and food preparation, and barbequing. Please note that you must be over 16 year old or over to work in the concession.
Please wear closed toed shoes and bring a warm jacket in case you are on the barbeque and the weather is inclement!
If the weather looks unsettled please check the web page for field closure information. Other than on specific days (such as Picture Day) if the fields have been closed the concession will also be closed. If nothing has been posted by 4:00 pm assume that the concession and fields are open.
Association policy on rain-outs is that if you have scheduled 2 shifts that have been rained out you can consider your volunteer duty complete.
If you need to cancel a booked shift that is more than 48 hours in the future, you can do so yourself by logging into your account on the web site and going into DIBS. If you find that you need to cancel a booked shift due to an emergency within the 48 hour non-cancellation period enforced by the web site, please email Margaret at firstname.lastname@example.org. NOTE: Do not send a cancellation request from the web site within 48 hours of your claimed shift, as it may not be noticed in time.

As part of our evolving player development process, Cloverdale Minor Baseball will be holding a series of Sunday evening player clinics for the Tadpole and Mosquito divisions.
These are open clinics, free to all players. Coaches, and older players, are encouraged to help out at these clinics. Simple instructions will be provided for new or experienced coaches on how to run each station that the players will be run through.
For each clinic, player and coaches will meet and the Mosquito diamond #4 (in front of the concession), with stations being run on fields #2 and #3 as well.
Each Sunday clinic will start at 6:00 PM sharp, so players should be there enough to have cleats on ready to go on time. Don't forget to bring water!

The Executive and Board of Cloverdale Minor Baseball Association are very pleased to announce that we have formally appointed Dave Diachuk to the newly created position of “Director of Coach and Player Development” for CMBA.
The creation of this position and the appointment of Dave Diachuk is the direct result of Cloverdale Minor Baseball’s desire to place a greater emphasis on Player and Coach Development in the future. Dave has been given the mandate to develop and implement a strategy that is consistent in both approach and method, which will equally benefit all of our coaches and players, whatever their level of play or experience.
Dave will be working closely with our Board to design, structure and implement age specific training and instructional criteria for coaches and players, and will be working directly alongside our High Performance Programs in Pee Wee, Bantam and Midget.
As a player, Dave was a member of numerous Provincial Championship Teams, a member of the BC Selects Provincial team and was selected to compete with the National Baseball Institute. As a Junior, Dave was honored to be a 1st team All Conference Selection in College and member of both the Canadian National Junior team and the Canadian National team. He played his senior year in Concordia College in Portland Oregon and once again was selected to the NAIA All Conference Team.
Dave started his coaching career in similar fashion to many of our CMBA coaches, T Ball thru Mosquito in Newton, 9-10’s in Langley Little League, and Pee Wee through Midget in Cloverdale. He was selected to be the Head Coach for the Fraser Valley rep for the BC Games (Gold Medal), and the Canada Games.
In recent years Dave was selected to oversee the inaugural edition of the Langley Jr. Blaze, and has been a guest coach and an instructor for the fall, winter and spring training for the past 7 years in the PBL, a period in which those teams were Provincial Champions (2012 and 2013) Western Canadian Champions (2010) and Canadian Champions in 2013 and 2015. In addition he has coached at the BC Selects Instructional Camps for the past 11 years and participated as a Guest Coach with the Douglas College Baseball Program.
Dave is busy designing an extensive Winter and Spring Program for players and coaches in all Divisions, and these Clinics will be posted very soon on our website. This is an exciting time for Cloverdale Minor Baseball and we hope that all of you will join us in welcoming Dave Diachuk in his new position.
Dear Sports Association Representative,
Due to the ongoing hot and dry weather, city parks have reached a point in which the danger of fire is critically high. Many of the fires in BC have apparently been started by discarded cigarettes.
Smoking is prohibited in all Surrey Parks including all sportfields, open spaces, paths, driveways and parking lots and is subject to a $200 fine per occurrence (Park By-law #13480).
Your co-operation in this matter is compulsory. By-law Enforcement will be patrolling City Parks for compliance. If individuals are ticketed for smoking, who can be linked to a team and league; facility use permits may be immediately revoked, in order to better protect public property.
Athletic Services Coordinator
City of Surrey
The Cloverdale Ball Park concession is closed on any days that the park is closed due to bad weather.
If you are scheduled for a volunteer shift on a day that the park has been closed, with a notice posted on this web page by 4:00 PM that the park is closed, then you will have to book a new shift in the concession for a later date (so on days when the weather is questionable, please check the web site before heading to the park for your shift).
In the event that your shift gets rained out twice, we will consider your shift as being completed.
If the rain-out notice has not been posted by 4:00 PM, and you show up for your shift to find that the park is closed, we will consider your shift as complete.
