General Information (Exeter Minor Ball)

PrintGeneral Information

The executive of Exeter Minor Baseball hopes that everyone is staying safe and healthy. Although the 2020 ball season was cancelled due to COVID, it is the intention of the EMB executive to run baseball and girl’s fastball programming for the 2021 season.

With the changing conditions from COVID, it is difficult to determine at this time what format the 2021 season will have, but we are planning for several options such as:
1)  a typical/normal season
2)  a modified season which may include games with nearby towns in a “bubble”.
3)  a locally based “house league” format.
4)  local practice and/or skills sessions.

Baseball Ontario has COVID protocols in place for these scenarios as well.

ONLINE REGISTRATION

Our online registration for the 2021 season will go live March 3, 2021 and will run until March 30, 2021. 
Please go to www.exeterminorball.ca, go to the registration tab where you will find the online registration form

Government legislation requires all sport administers to providing participant/registrant compliance and mandatory waivers.

 

We have created an online registration platform will ensure that these mandatory requirements are met. (eg. Rowan's Law; concussion information)

 

The form is located on our website under the registration tab.

 

If you are interested in coaching, there is also a new online coaches application

 

Return your payment to our mailbox.
Unfortunately due to COVID restrictions we will not be able to hold in person registration this season

You must register by March 30th to ensure yourself a spot on a team!
Registering early helps the executive determine team numbers and availability of diamonds to ensure another great ball season for everyone, so REGISTER EARLY!!!!

If you have a participant for the 2021 season, please register online by March 30th.  It is important the executive has the registration numbers early,  so we can plan accordingly.  

We understand changing COVID conditions in the community can change people’s decisions. 
If COVID conditions change prior to the start of the season and you decide you no longer want to play ball please let us know as soon as possible

 

SHIRTS / TRYOUTS

- Players will be receiving their own shirts to keep at the end of the season, we will need to know your shirt size with your registration

- Players wishing to tryout for an OBA team will be subject to a $40.00 tryout fee

- Players selected and rostered to play OBA baseball will be charged an additional playing fee.


VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENTS

We will continue to have a volunteer requirement much like other local minor sports organizations have. Our organization needs to raise funds over and above the money collected through registration for things like equipment, uniforms, diamond times and of course umpires. Additional funds raised also helps keep registration costs as low as possible.

Due to the success of our tournaments last year we are planning to host tournaments for both fastball and baseball teams in varying age groups again this year. Running a tournament or other event takes a lot of hard work and many hands to make it go smoothly. Each family is expected to fulfil a volunteer requirement for each registered child with Exeter Minor Ball. The non-participatory fee is $200 per child that is registered on either the Extremes fastball or Express baseball side. Teeball is NOT exempt from the volunteer requirement.

The fee are not meant to be punitive and it is our sincere wish to not cash any cheques from any family, so please make sure you are using the opportunities that are offered to volunteer, as it will be your responsibility to make sure you fulfill the requirements.


Given the COVID protocols in place from Baseball Ontario, more volunteers than normal will be required for the 2021 season, please consider volunteering.
