After reviewing the new Health Order and directive from Baseball BC, Cloverdale Minor Baseball has come to the conclusion that our internal protocols meet, or exceed these expectations with the exception of face masks. Effective immediately face masks will be required for all participants in our Winter Clinics in accordance with the directive from Baseball BC. We will be continuing on with the scheduled Winter Clinics at this time but will continue to monitor the situation and adjust as necessary to comply with all orders and guidelines.
Given the new health order from Dr. Bonnie Henry that was delivered today (Nov 7th), Cloverdale Minor Baseball is taking caution and postponing tomorrow's Sunday (Nov 8th) skills sessions while we evaluate the programming we are offering and how it aligns with the health order. CMBA has had COVID precautions in place to help keep our players safe and will continue to look out for the health and safety of our players and the community.
Bantam AAA winter training is set to begin the week of November 1. It will consist of baseball skills training as well as strength and conditioning sessions. Cost of these sessions will be $250 per player.
These training sessions will be Monday and Wednesday nights 7:15-9:15pm and every second Friday from 6-8pm at the Cloverdale Batting Cage.
Due to current Covid Protocols the players will be rotating through each 2 hour session with a maximum of 10 players per session. Groups and sessions will be designated by the coach.
These sessions will go until the New Year, with a break taken for Christmas. These sessions will conclude when the selection of the Bantam AAA team is made. We encourage all players that would like to play for the Bantam AAA team to attend as many of these sessions as possible. These practices will allow the coaches to continue the evaluation process for the upcoming season.
If you have questions, please contact Head Coach, Michael Dagg to register at email@example.com. Please bring payment in the form of cash or cheque (cheque preferred) to Michael at the first session.
2020-2021 Winter Training will be broken up into 2 separate sessions:

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.
NOTE: Each clinic is a separate registration.

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.
