Cloverdale Minor Baseball will be offering fall programming in 2021.  We are currently looking for volunteer coaches at our various levels. 

Traditionally, Fall Ball is offered for Mosquito (11U) and higher divisions but the Board would like to know if there is interest in baseball programming for our younger divisions.

Fall Ball programming is dependant on both coach and player interest.  If you are interested in volunteering to coach please contact the division coordinator for the appropriate age level.

For Fall Ball, players will play in the division they will play in for the 2022 season.

2011-2012 - Mosquito (11U) - Robyn Kopelman - robynkopelman@gmail.com

Cloverdale Spurs U11 AA battled back and forth with Aldergrove in the 2021 Jack Short Championship in Ridge Meadows this afternoon.  Aldergrove AA kept it close and pulled ahead in the 5th but it was the Spurs discipline at the plate in the bottom of the inning that saw the Spurs take the victory on a walk-off walk for a 10-9 victory for the Spurs!  The team would like to thank their families for their support this week.

2021 Travis Selje Scholarship award winners

By Cloverdale Minor Baseball

Travis Selje played for Cloverdale Minor Baseball for nine years. During this time, he played on three Gold Medal Provincial winning teams, one Bronze Medal Provincial winning team, and won the 13UAAA Western Championship in 2013. He was a straight-A student at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary and took part in the French Immersion program there.

Travis last played for the Spurs in 2014 for the 15UAA team. That year he decided to commit fully to the Vancouver Whitecaps. As part of the Whitecaps residency program, Travis was required to go to high school in Burnaby with the rest of the residency players. Travis had a very bright future ahead of him but tragically died on May 5, 2017, in a car accident.

Travis Selje’s name is throughout the park on the banners on the diamonds representing his achievement on these Provincial winning teams. The Travis Selje Memorial Scholarships are in recognition of his achievements both on and off the baseball diamond.

On behalf of the Cloverdale Minor Baseball Association, we would like to congratulate the following graduating players each receiving a scholarship of $500.00.

  • Brady Sandes
  • Devin Ogilivie
  • Jevan Thind
  • Max Skinner

Restart Update 
--------------------

The Provincial Government confirmed the news we all wanted to hear  recently - we’ve moved into Step 2 of BC’s Restart Plan, which means sports can now officially move to Step 2 for the Return to Sport Restart 2.0 plan, as per ViaSport, Baseball BC, and City of Surrey’s direction.

Of note when at Cloverdale Ball Park or any other baseball facility:

  • Maximum group size of 50 participants (players) per diamond
  • Physical Distance not required on field of play.  Off field of play, physical distance of 2 meters must be maintained.
  • Up to 50 spectators per diamond (please respect all physical distancing guidelines - use your lawn chair)
    • Max of 25 spectators per team
    • Based on rosters of 12 players, this means a max of 2 spectators per child.  (i.e. 2 parents, 1 grandparent + 1 parent, 1 parents + 1 sibling)
    • Team officials, scorekeeper, players, etc are part of the 50 participants (players) count of 50

CMBA Board of Directors appreciates our members' patience as this process unfolded in 2021. Please enjoy the remaining games and events of the season. Provincial Health Office, Baseball BC, and Cloverdale Minor Baseball’s safety guidelines and protocols are still in effect.

Concession
----------------

We are also excited to announce the opening of our Concession effective Tuesday, June 15th. Cash and Debit are accepted as payment.

Dibs Volunteers

There are some Spectator Patrol shifts available to help remind our membership of the physical distancing requirements of our spectators.  Furthermore, with the summer season starting soon, additional opportunities to complete your Spring Dibs shifts will be available as the concession runs through the month of July.
