COVID-19 Updates

March 13, 2020 - Suspension of Baseball Activities

Kamloops Minor Baseball is suspending our baseball activities.

Today Baseball BC suspended all baseball activities for 7 days given the heightened concerns over the potential spread of COVID-19. Baseball BC will be re-evaluating next week and issue further direction at that time. BC Minor Baseball and Baseball Canada have released similar advisories.

The health and safety of all the KMBA participants and families is of the utmost importance and is central to any decisions KMBA is making in this regard. The response to this pandemic is changing daily. We will continue to follow the guidelines set forth by our governing bodies, the public health authorities, and government.

We are still several weeks away from opening day and hope that the swift actions being taken now across the country, will allow us to get back to normalcy much quicker.

KMBA will provide an update to our families next week, or as soon as any significant decision is made.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we work through this unprecedented event.

Chris Balison, President
Kamloops Minor Baseball

About Midget

About the 18U Division

KMBA has three programs for Midget Baseball, the 18U AA (House) programming and the 18U AAA/College Prep (rep) program.

18U AA

KMBA will form teams based on the number of players registered. In the past this has ranged from 2-3 teams each year.

The teams will be balanced and play in the Okanagan Interlock League. Games are normally on the weekends with double headers starting at the end of April and travel is usually balanced between an even number of home and away games in the Okanagan (re: Vernon, Kelowna and Penticton). These teams will practice (one early time and one later time) on Monday nights.

In addition, there will be an option for those players who want to play more competitively and into the summer. The 18U AA summer head coach will evaluate players in the spring and indentify those players interested in playing competitively by their skill level and interest. These players will then get additional practice time during the week on Wednesday nights or potentially play a game that night in the local men's league.

In June tryouts will be held for any player that is interested in playing summer baseball. This team does incurr additional fees for a uniform kit, tournament costs, coach travel, etc. The team will play through the month of July and early August.

18U AAA/College Prep

The 18U AAA and College Prep teams are KMBA's elite programs for midget age players. They play in a single season league against teams from across the Province. Evaluations for this program occur in March with practices and games starting at the end of March. Practices are Tuesday and Thursday nights with games taking place on both Saturday and Sunday until the beginning of August.
