New Years Clinics

12/20/2020, 12:30pm PST
By Cloverdale Minor Baseball

Cloverdale Minor Baseball is happy to announce that we will be able to offer our New Year Training Program once again. Unfortunately this year we have had to put some additional measures in place due to the current situation. In addition to our current protocols, we are having to limit the number of players for each session, parents will not be allowed to watch the sessions in the batting cage.

This year we are excited to have three coaches running the New Year Clinics for us. Joe Germaine is an accomplished coach who has coached professional teams around the world and runs high-level youth programs. John Parker is with our College Prep Program. He has
extensive experience coaching in the PBL League with multiple Provincial, National, and International accomplishments. As well, we will have Nick Palmer running the Catchers Clinics for our PeeWee and Bantam catchers. Nick is the Catchers Coach for our College Prep
Program.

In addition to our clinics, current CMBA Coaches or parents interested in coaching will have the opportunity to participate in the clinics. Shadowing these high level and accomplished coaches is an excellent way to develop and expand your coaching knowledge
and skills.

The clinics will begin on January 9 and run until February 19. The cost for each clinic is $120.  Please make cheques payable to Cloverdale Minor Baseball and bring them to your first session.

To register for the clinics, please email Chris Semak at csemak@telus.net. Please include your clinic, level of play, and preference of times.

NOTE: Masks must be worn in the cage during the training sessions.

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.
