These training sessions will be Tuesday and Thursday nights 7-9pm and Saturday from 4-6pm at the Cloverdale Batting Cage. 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.

The winter training sessions will run 4 days a week, 3 days during the week and 1 option day on the weekend. Two of the training days will consist of baseball activities, the third will be speed and agility training at Game Ready Fitness. The Optional day will run on Saturday mornings.
Winter training sessions will last 7 weeks and will run from Nov. 2nd-Dec. 18th. The total cost for Winter Training will be $250 per player for 20 sessions plus potentially 7 optional Saturday sessions (approximately $10/session). These fees cover our coaches’ costs, Game Ready Fitness and winter training supplies such as baseballs.

We encourage all players that would like to play for Cloverdale Nationals College Prep program for the 2020 season to attend a minimum of 2 sessions a week. These practices will allow the coaches to continue the evaluation process for next season as well as build on the foundation we have started during this Fall.

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.
