Baseball activities remain suspended indefinitely.

Many members of the association have sent messages inquiring about possible refunds for this season. 

At this time the Board is waiting for further direction and recommendations from BaseballBC, and once we have that, we will discuss the options, including refunds and deferrals. 

The Board has a meeting set for April 5th, and hope to have more info for everyone then.

We know how difficult this global pandemic is on everyone one of our members and their extended family and networks. We encourage everyone to practice social distancing to help flatten the curve.  

Lastly we appreciate everyone’s patience while we work through this unprecedented situation. 

Thank You

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

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.
