KMBA is dedicated to welcoming every youth in Kamloops who wants to play baseball. No child should not play baseball simply because a family cannot make the financial commitment.

Updated for the 2021 Spring Season here is how to proceed with registering a player with Third Party Funding.

Step 1: APPLY FOR THIRD PARTY FUNDING.

There are many different 3rd party funding organizations in Kamloops. Whether you receive funding assistance from your Christian School, First Nations Band, or Kamloops KidSport, Jumpstart or another third party payer. Many third party funding options require 6-8 weeks from receipt of completed application, to approving and suppling funding to the association.

Step 2: REGISTER FOR KAMLOOPS MINOR BASEBALL

Register online with KMBA for Third Party Registrations. Families will receive a confirmation email confirming they have successfully completed the registration. Player registration will not be confirmed until funding has been approved and/or received.Third Party Registration deadline is Feb 28th.

Step 3: FOLLOW -UP

Once you are assured that you have fully completed BOTH of the above, the onus is on the registering parent or guardian to follow-up with the third party payer in regards to the status of their request. Kamloops Minor Baseball will notify families WHEN funding has been approved. Players WITHOUT a confirmed registration CANNOT be placed on a team or take the field for insurance purposes.
