2020 Assessments

02/09/2020, 8:45pm PST
By Cloverdale Minor Baseball

In order to help make balanced teams in our house divisions our association holds assessments where coaches from the division will assess the skills of each player to help ensure teams are as balanced as possible for the spring season.  These are NOT tryouts and all children who are registered will be placed on a team.

In previous years our assessments have been held at the Cloverdale Agriplex but due to a long-term filming booking the Agriplex is not available to the association.  Instead, our assessments will be held in the gymnasium at Precious Blood Catholic Church & Cloverdale Catholic School.  As this is a smaller space our divisions coordinators will be emailing players with their time slot for assessments.  Due to the space constraints players may not attend another assessment time without first clearing it with their division coordinator.

Assessment Times

Fri, Feb 21st Peewee 6pm-9:30pm
Sat, Feb 22nd Tadpole 8:15am-1:30pm
  Mosquito 1:30pm-7:30pm
  Bantam 7:15pm-9:30pm
Sun, Feb 23rd Mosquito 8:15am-1:30pm
  Tadpole 1:30pm-7:30pm

** Players will be emailed with their assessment times.

Location

Precious Blood Parish Center - Gymnasium - 17475 59th Ave, Surrey, BC (The gym is in the western most building on the campus)

Coaching Registration

01/03/2020, 8:00pm PST
By Cloverdale Minor Baseball

Cloverdale Minor Baseball relies heavily on the support of volunteers, most notably in the area of coaching.  Coaches are needed throughout our organization, especially at the younger levels where we have high enrollment of kids learning the game of baseball.

If you are able to help coach this year please register as a coach as soon as possible.  You may indicate your preference to be a Head Coach or an Assistant Coach.

https://cloverdalebaseball.sportngin.com/register/form/441004220

New to Coaching?  Our association can support you by sponsoring NCCP training courses, our in house training courses, the Coaches Caravan, and even get you assistance.

Not available all the time? Many of our coaches work shifts that do not allow them to be there 100% of the time but often they can be paired with another coach who can help cover those times and/or the parents will step up to help out.  Even part time coaching can greatly help these children.

What's the benefit of coaching? Aside from covering the volunteer requirement of your child's registration (max 1 Head Coach and 2 Assistant Coaches per team) you also get to spend some quality time with your son/daughter and provide a positive influence for the young boys and girls you'll coach.

Any other questions, please reach out to our Coach and Player Development Coordinator at scottkwilson@shaw.ca

Cloverdale College Prep and Midget New Year Training

01/03/2020, 9:15am PST
By Cloverdale Baseball

With 2019 winding down, we now look forward towards the 2020 season.

The January training sessions will run 3 days a week and will be open to anyone who would like to play at the College Prep level. This will be the last time the coaching staff will have the opportunity to evaluate
players for the 2020 season.

Sessions will be in one-hour time slots and will be determined by a sign up method.

The sessions are Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. Sessions include but not exclusive to baseball activities, which include hitting, throwing, pitching, fielding and speed and agility training.

Winter training sessions will last 2-3 weeks and will run from Jan. 6th-25th. From there we will finalize the College Prep roster, have one-on-one meetings and then announce our roster. Cost of these sessions will
be $50 for 9 sessions.

College Prep Cloverdale Nationals Coaching Staff

Bob Foerster Beau Simpson
Scott Manick Joe Germaine
   

Schedule and Training Plan

Monday and Wednesday Nights - 7-9pm at Cloverdale Batting Cage

These sessions will focus on baseball activities consisting of hitting sessions with defensive days mixed in.

Saturday Morning - 8-10am at Cloverdale Batting Cage

Will be focused on speed and agility as well as position specific practices, which include throwing program, bullpens and live hitting situations.

We encourage all players that would like to play for the Cloverdale Nationals next year to attend all sessions. There will not be a formal tryout for the College prep team, so these practices, including the Fall and Winter training sessions, will be the last time the coaching staff will evaluate players.

Email Dave Palmer at cloverdalenatsdp@gmail.com to confirm your participation in training sessions

Arizona Trip- March 15h -19th

A formal meeting will be planned for Wednesday, Jan. 8th at the Cloverdale Ball Park meeting room to go over the itinerary of the trip, the logistics, games and expectations for the trip. Everyone is welcomed to attend to receive more information. Costs will be provided as well. This is not a mandatory trip by any means, but is a great opportunity for exposure as well as team bonding and getting out of the cold weather. Our season will start in early April so these games do help us be prepared for those games.

If you have questions or would like clarification on the next few weeks, please let me know.

Thanks, Coach Bob

 

Smoking Ban in ALL Surrey Parks

07/17/2015, 4:45pm PDT
By City of Surrey

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.

Sincerely,

Sonja Boston
Athletic Services Coordinator
City of Surrey

Batting Cage Rules & Etiquette

03/28/2015, 5:00pm PDT
By Cloverdale Baseball

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.

  1. Please DO NOT enter the batting cage until the previous team has cleared out of the cage. This includes the seating area! It is very difficult to ensure that all players have collected their equipment if your team has crowded in and mixed their bags and equipment with the other team's equipment.
  2. Teams ARE NOT to run over their allotted time. When your hour is done – you’re done! This means no excuses like "one last batter" or "quick team meeting" or "we got in late". You must be OUT OF THE CAGE by the time your hour is done.
  3. Therefore, teams must start cleaning up their equipment 5 minutes prior to the end of their session, so they have vacated the batting cage on time. The clock on the wall in the batting cage (near the door) will be considered the official time for the batting cage.
  4. All teams are responsible to clean up the batting cage each time they are finished their session (balls in buckets and bats hung up). Please see the above picture as to what a properly cleaned up batting cage looks like. This is the condition that it should be left in after your session is over.
  5. DO NOT leave the nets open with balls, buckets, ot tee parts laying around.
  6. DO NOT (EVER) leave pitching machines in lanes on the turf when you leave.
  7. DO NOT leave L-screens in the lanes when you leave.
  8. The rule of thumb is if you remove anything from the wood platform at the south end, you MUST return it there when done.
  9. There is to be no smoking, food of any kind, or beverages (except water) in the batting cage.
  10. NO SPITZ are allowed in the batting cage. EVER! This includes the waiting area. You are not exempt by thinking that you can spit the shells into a garbage can or empty bottle. This includes players, parents, siblings, etc. NOT ALLOWED!
  11. NO GUM is allowed in the batting cage. We now have gum embedded in the turf that may never come out. This is a simple rule, and coaches are required to enforce it!
  12. Only clean runners or turf shoes are to be worn. NO CLEATS
  13. Only adults are to feed or operate the pitching machines.
  14. Batting helmets must be worn while batting.
  15. Balls are to be placed back in the buckets and not in your baseball bags.
