Player FAQ's

Q: When are the games for Blastball, T-Ball, Super-T, Tadpole and Mosquito?

CMBA does not have set playing nights.  Games are scheduled on all 7 days of the week and teams play 1-2 games per week.  Game time on the weeknights is often 6pm (5:30pm in April), game times on Saturdays are often 9am, 12pm, 3pm & 6pm (2:45pm & 5:30pm in April) and game times on Sundays are 9am, 12pm, 3pm & 6pm (2:45pm & 5:30pm in April).

Each player in Blastball thru Mosquito is given a playing schedule at the beginning of the season with all of their game times listed. Blastball, T-Ball, and Super-T usually do not play on Sundays.

Q: Does my child have to attend any evaluations or try-out?

Players in Tadpole and Mosquito will need to attend a skills evaluation day.  This session helps the Coaches assess a child’s skills so when teams are put together they can be as balanced as possible.  This session usually lasts about 1-1.5 hours. 

For Pee Wee, Bantam and Midget we hold try-out sessions for our elite programs (AA, AAA).  There are also Evaluation sessions for all other players to assess a child’s skills so teams can be balanced. 

Evaluation and Try-Out times will be announced at a later date.

Q: When are the practices?

The amount of practices and times are determined by each individual Coach.  The coach will communicate these dates and times with the team.

For most divisions, the spring baseball season typically starts at the beginning of April and closes at the end of June.
