Cloverdale Minor Baseball is happy to announce that once again we will be able to offer our Winter Training Program. Unfortunately this year we have had to put some additional measures in place due to the current situation. In addition to our current protocols we are having to limit the number of players for each session, as well parents will not be allowed in the batting cage to watch the sessions.
This year we are excited to have two coaches running the Winter Clinics for us. Joe Germaine is an accomplished coach that has coached professional teams around the world as well as run high level youth programs. John Parker is with our College Prep Program. He has extensive experience coaching in the PBL League with multiple Provincial, National and International accomplishments.
In addition to our clinics current CMBA Coaches, or parents that are interested in coaching, will have the opportunity to participate in the clinics. Shadowing these high level and accomplished coaches is an excellent way to develop and expand your coaching knowledge and skills.
The clinics will begin on November 1 and run until December 12. The cost for each clinic is $120. Please make cheques payable to Cloverdale Minor Baseball and bring them to your first session.
To register for the clinics please email Chris Semak firstname.lastname@example.org . Please include your clinic, level of play and preference of times.

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.
