Cloverdale Minor Baseball is in need of many volunteers to help with putting on this special event.
Scorekeeping: Every game requires two scorekeepers, one to do Game Changer electronically and one person to do it the old fashion way with pencil and paper.
Announcer/Pitch Counter: Each game will have a person announcing players and any other special announcements during the game. You will also be required to be the official pitch counter for the game.
Field Maintenance: Do you know how to set up and rake a diamond, this may be the position for you. Several people needed at the beginning and end of every game.

Cloverdale Minor Baseball is very proud of our grassroots program for umpire development. Our UIC, Gord McFarlane, recently wrote an Op Ed piece that was featured in the Vancouver Sun. Gord, thank you and Sheridan, for the work you have put into our umpire development program in Cloverdale.
Let us all remember that our umpires are learning and trying to improve and that we need to support them as they develop. It is very difficult to play the game if there are no officials there to call the balls & strikes and safes & outs.
Cloverdale Minor Baseball is embarking on a Sponsorship Program in order to raise revenue necessary to continue upgrades to our facilities and programs. This is a rewards based program that allows every one of our player families to participate in the Sponsorship program and earn rewards for doing so! All of us know people in our community that own or operate a business and would be willing to become a Sponsor Partner with CMBA. Please find enclosed details of our new Sponsorship Program and how you can earn rewards for forwarding this information onto people who you know in the Community.

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.

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.
