March 25 - Spring Registration Fee Options

Your Kamloops Minor Baseball volunteer Board have worked through the logistics so we can offer a full refund for your spring season fees. There is no easy way to process all the transactions. Refunds require a manual entry, transaction by transaction. However, KMBA is prepared to offer families 2 options when it comes to their 2020 registration.

Option 1: Request a full refund of fees paid online
(Requires Action, click link below)

Option 2: Receive credit for registration in the 2021 Spring Season
(Automatic if you don't choose Option 1)

To request your refund, CLICK HERE, and fill out the form, BEFORE April 10, 2020 at 11:59pm.

Everyone who does not request a refund will be given credit for registration in the 2021 season.

KMBA will work to process all refunds between April 11-30. At that time, families who did not request a refund will receive information about their credit for the 2021 season.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Stay safe, stay well,

Chris Balison, President

March 17, 2020 - KMBA Spring Baseball Season Cancelled

Dear KMBA Baseball Families,

With the most recent announcements from public heath officials, BC Minor Baseball, and Baseball BC, Kamloops Minor Baseball is cancelling the Spring baseball season.

The public health crisis we all face is bigger than our spring season of baseball. This decision was difficult for the Board of Directors, but done to protect the safety of our baseball families and contribute to the global effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

We hold out hope that in the coming months this crisis will decline, and it will be safe to offer our programming again. Our dedicated group of volunteers will soon turn their minds to what baseball activities might look like in the Summer or Fall.

Thank you for your understanding and support.

Chris Balison, President

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

      Hardship Policy

      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. We are pleased to offer financial assistance to those families who wish to enroll their child in baseball, but are facing financial difficulties.
