CMBA Return to Practice - Summer Programming Registration - Link available!!

06/25/2020, 8:45pm PDT
By Cloverdale Minor Baseball

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:

  • the cost for these sessions will be $100 per player for all age groups
  • credit card payment only
  • the program is Return to Practice
  • players should not attend if they show signs of COVID-19 (please see the full Illness Policy below)
  • should a parent or child fail to adhere to the COVID-19 safety guidelines that they may be asked to withdraw from the session or the entire Return to Practice program
  • there will be no refunds under any circumstances for the Return to Practice programming
  • registration fees deferred from Spring 2020 can not be used for the Return to Practice programming
  • there will be two sessions per week, starting week of July 6th and continuing through the end of August
  • spectators are currently limited to 0 or 1 parent per athlete (NOTE - for 9U Tadpole it is required that 1 parent, no more, no less attend the session)
  • registrants must have been registered for the 2020 Spring season in Cloverdale

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:

CMBA Safety Plan

Baseball BC Return to Play Guidelines

viaSport Guidelines

BC Minor General Health & Hygiene Guidelines

Illness Policy

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

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.
