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 Mosquito

About Mosquito

Mosquito is the division where the game of baseball starts to take shape. Players begin pitching and summer all-star seasons are offered.

The division plays with modified rules that encourages fair play and keeps the game moving.

Ages

Currently open to kids born in 2009 and 2010.

Required Equipment

Glove, helmet, baseball pants, and a protective cup.


Seasons of Play

Fall Baseball (September)

A time for development and fun. Fall baseball is comprised of player who will be entering the division in the following year as well as players who will be moving into their second year. This is typically players in grades 4 and 5. Usually run 2 nights a week, the players practice and scrimmage with each other. Subject to interest, there is opportunity to play teams from other associations.

Registration opens in August each year and spots are limited.

Winterball (January-March)

Winterball is run in our first class indoor training facility: Sussex Insurance Centre on McArthur Island. Winterball is designed to offer the players instruction on many of the fundamentals that can get lost in the busy Spring Season. This back to basics approach gives players a fun environment to hone abilities and learn new aspects of the game and keep active during the winter months.

Registration opens in December each year and spots are limited.

Spring Season (April-June)

Given the large size of this Division, we are unable to offer set days of play. Players can expect about 2-3 practices/games per week. All players will be evaluated in early April and then drafted into their teams.

Each Friday night in May, KMBA offers an additional "Development Night" where players of all abilities work with some of KMBA's best players and coaches with the goal of getting better and having fun!

Registration opens in December each year.

Summer "Riverdogs" Season (July)

In May, players are given the opportunity to try out for one of KMBA's Summer Select teams. Each summer KMBA is dedicated to fielding as many summer teams as possible. These all-star teams represent KMBA as Riverdogs play in tournaments against other associations from around the province culminating with the provincial championship.

We try and field a Riverdog team at the following levels:

  • AAA Tier 1 - competitive
  • A (1st year players only) - competitive
  • AAA Tier 2 - development
