Cloverdale Baseball is excited to announce that the Spring 2017 Registration is now open!

Please note the Registration Rates have changed and the Volunteer and Uniform Deposits have been updated.  The deposits are now $150 each and need to be dated for May 1, 2017.  To opt out of volunteering, it is now $125 payable with your registration fee.

The concession volunteer policies have changed to immediate cashing of Volunteer Cheque with multiple last minute cancelation of DIBS shifts.  Please understand that our concession staff count on your volunteership that you have signed up for.  Last minute cancelations cost the association by paying part time young adults, and cashed volunteer deposits covers that cost.

Please note that your Blastball, T-Ball or Super-T child will not be assigned to their team until the deposits have been received.

For Tadpole ages and older, your child will not be allowed to participate in the skill assessment, and thus be assigned to a team until the deposits have been received.
