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
