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

9U - Second year players play in the Hardball group. Schedule: Practices either Wed &/or Thurs with Games on Saturdays.

Each group plays by a modified set of rules that will gradually ease the transition from Rally Cap through 8U/9U & into 11U (Mosquito).

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 2 and 3. Usually run 2 nights a week, the players practice and scrimmage with each other.

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 November each year and spots are limited.

Spring Season (April-June)

Given the growing size of this Division, we are unable to offer set days of play until we finalize the number of players. Players can expect about 2-3 practices/games per week.

Registration opens in November 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.

We try and field at least 1 Riverdog team at the Tadpole level
