Recently umpires from Cloverdale Minor Baseball have had the opportunity to attend a couple of premier training opportunities. Attending the Baseball Canada Academy were current Cloverdale umpires Kalen Casson and Colby Furness. Ethan Boyton, a long time Cloverdale umpire who now lives in Chilliwack, also attended the Academy. These umpires, along with the others in attendance, received some great words of encouragement:
"We are again pleased by the enthusiasm of so many young umpires in this province to travel to Kamloops and take the feedback we give them and implement it immediately" "The young talent we saw at Umpire Academy was outstanding. All 10 of these young men should be proud of their accomplishments and efforts. It is clear that many of them come from associations that hold ongoing mentorship in the highest regard, and it shows" - Steve Boutang, BCBUA Provincial Supervisor
"Over the last few years we have seen a lot of talent at our Umpire Academy and this year was no exception. It is clear that the mentorship work being done in many of our associations is not only encouraging young umpires to stay in the game, it is accelerating their progress when they have the passion. We have seen 7 Umpire Academy students in the last few years move up into our National program - and we have a few more on the cusp. What we saw this year indicates this will continue." - Rhonda Pauls, Vice-President, Education Chair, BCBUA
In other exciting news, Lane Yakemchuk, another Cloverdale umpire attended this first Baseball Canada National Clinic. Next year Colby will join Lane at next year’s National Clinic having been awarded his Level III.
Cloverdale Minor Baseball would like to congratulate these fine umpires on these accomplishments. The BCBUA Grassroots Program has had a dramatic effect on the development of umpires province-wide and CMBA is pleased to participate in the program. Keep up the good work!
Baseball BC has launched the province's first-ever girls baseball league, and it is set to begin next Saturday, May 26th and run for 7-9 weeks. Our hope is to continue to grow the female game and have targeted the 8-12 age group (for now) as we have seen drastic drop-off in numbers around this age in leagues across BC

Ryan will be part of the team representing BC at the Triple Crown Baseball Father’s Day Slugfest in Kennewick, Washington June 15th-17th.

Cloverdale Minor Baseball is looking for members who would like to become more involved in the association to fill a number of important volunteer positions, as listed below. Each position qualifies as fulfilling the required annual volunteer duty per registered player.
If you are interested in one of the positions, and would like more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Concession Manager is an executive position, requiring attendance at monthly board meetings.

Web Site Maintenance
Cloverdale Baseball requires one or two more people to help with the day to day maintenance of the web site. This requires people who have good communication skills, and some technical savvy. Ability to directly edit HTML code is a definite asset, as is experience with Excel (which we use to create import files for scheduled games, events, DIBS, etc).
