Baseball BC has launched the province's first-ever girls baseball league, and it is set to begin next Saturday, May 26th and run for 7-9 weeks. Our hope is to continue to grow the female game and have targeted the 8-12 age group (for now) as we have seen drastic drop-off in numbers around this age in leagues across BC

The Cloverdale Spurs 10U All Star team topped off an improbable season with a victory over the White Rock Tritons in the Gold medal game of last weekend’s Provincial Championships in Richmond.
The Spurs qualified as the #1 seed in the Championship after going undefeated in league play and the team sporting an overall record of 26 wins and only 1 loss, that coming at the hands of the Tritons in the final game of the Can Am Cup. After victories over Comox, Abbotsford, Vernon and Tri City in the round robin portion of the Championship, Cloverdale knocked off Ridge Meadows in the semi –final, leading them to a return date with the Tritons in the Championship Game. The Spurs jumped out to an 8-2 lead, but White Rock battled back in the later innings. The Cloverdale defense held firm, and the Spurs walked away with a 10-8 victory earning them the Gold Medal.

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.
