Hello CMBA Families,
With the Return to Practice season underway we have been unable to do the necessary preparartion for the 2020 CMBA AGM. As a result, the AGM has been rescheduled again to Mon, Sept 21st at 6pm.
Additional details will follow shortly.
CMBA Board of Directors
Cloverdale Minor Baseball is happy to announce that our CMBA COVID-19 Safety Plan has been approved by BC Minor and the City of Surrey so we are able to roll out our Return to Practice programming for the months of July and August.
This is a Return to Practice program that allows for skill development. As guidelines are ever adapting we will need to adapt as necessary to ensure we remain in compliance with the guidelines laid out by BC Minor Baseball, Baseball BC, viaSport, and local and provincial health authorities.
CMBA will be running Return to Practice for the 9U, 11U, and 13U divisions. We are currently looking for coach volunteers for the 15U A division in order to run that division. Unfortunately we are not able to offer programming for those in younger divisions as we as an association are adapting to this "new normal". The minimum birth year for participation is 2012, no exceptions. Please note that spaces are limited due to coach availability.
Here are some details regarding the Return to Practice programming:
It is incredibly important that parents and coaches read and understand the various guidelines and to help explain to your children what this "new normal" looks like. The following documents must be reviewed prior to registering your child for the Return to Practice programming:

Furthermore, each player and parent/volunteer/spectator will be required to complete a waiver form and a Player/Parent Code of Conduct.

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.

Coaches, please make sure that you understand all rules and policies governing the use of the batting cage, as they are there to both promote high utilization of the facility while ensuring player safety.
