Leamington Minor Baseball is on the verge of opening a new indoor facility for the months of November to April. 
The facility will offer the following advantages to past indoor clinics that we ran in gymnasiums:

1) Indoor Batting Cage
2) Pitching Mound for higher age groups, pitching rubbers for Mosquito/Peewee
3) Large open area for fun, interactive baseball drills.
4) 7 Day access to accommodate schedules.
5) Training Equipment geared towards physical development

Programs being put together will offer 15 clinic sessions over the 6 months, a Baseball Academy T-Shirt and free access to specialty clinics that will occur throughout the winter including pitching clinics, hitting clinics and supervised open space time. At this time costs are being estimated at $75/player, payment plans will be available for families with multiple children interested.

Programs with plans currently in place include:

1) Rookie Development Program (2006-2007 age group)
2) Mosquito Development Program (2004-2005 age group)
3) Peewee Development Program (2002-2003 age group)
4) Midget Program (1999 and prior)
5) JR Girls Development (2004-2007)
6) Introduction to Rookie Program - Boys and Girls (2008)

Other programs are still being worked on based on clinicians being obtained and membership interest so please sign up even if you don't see
a program mentioned for your age group.

This is solely to gauge interest, so we can move forward with the opening of the facility.

Once interest level is evaluated the clinicians in charge will work with the groups to find days and times that are best suited based on current activities i.e our beloved hockey schedules :) and I'm sure some of us dance, swim, shoot hoops etc.

Please fill out - Winter Clinic Application Form

UPDATES FOR 2015 SEASON: 

1) FACILITY PROJECT:

    Please be aware that the current board is diligently working towards getting a new facility built for our diamond complex.
    We realize this will not happen over night but our goal is to raise enough money to upgrade our washrooms, canteen, umpire
    change area, and equipment shed with better shelter and operations for hosting tournaments at our beautiful facility.
    We ask that you try and support any fundraising efforts we put forward and any suggestions from the membership in helping raise
    money would be greatly appreciated.  Upcoming Fundraisers include: A1 Chinese Restaurant Fundraiser in December 2014 , Indoor Golf
    Tournament in February 2015 and our always popular TRIVIA NIGHT in February 2015, stay tuned!

2) ONLINE REGISTRATION:

    Coming this year we will be offering online registration and payment, there will be an early registration rate up until December 31st,
    regular rate from January 1st to March 15th and late registration rate, depending on availability, until April 30th, 2015.

3) TRAVEL PROGRAMS:

    We will be offering a Midget Minor 'A' level program for 2015 dependent on the numbers that register in that age group.
    We will also be looking at implementing a Minor and Major system for those age groups that can support the numbers and talent
    and dependent on coaching availability.
    Where numbers or coaching is not available we will run one travel team in that division.

TRAVEL COACHES - For all interested individuals we are requesting applications be sent in prior to November 15th, 2014 with hiring
to be done by November 26th, 2014.  LDMBA is also supporting our coaches by offering attendance to the 'Best Ever Coaches Clinic'
hosted by Professional players and coaches in Toronto in January of 2015.
Coaching applications are available by filling out the online form or by emailing your request to ldmba2014@gmail.com

4) YOUTH PROGRAM CHANGES:

    After implementing the Rally Cap program for our 4-7 year age group the feedback was the 4/5 years old were still a little young to
    implement full on baseball.  After much research we have come across a program that has been implemented successfully in the Toronto
    area called, 'BLASTBALL' (please look under Handouts for more information).  This is a fun introduction to the game for our younger players.
    Our 6 years olds will register for the Rally Cap T-Ball program which will be tweaked from last years success and will enable us to teach the
    skills while implementing more game situation. Our Rookie level will now be 7-9 year olds where pitching machine is introduced.

FLEXIBILITY:  We are aware ability is not always age dependent so knowing your child you can request the following movement:

1) 2010 born players with strong ability can request to move into T-Ball division with 2009 age group.
2) 2009 born players with strong ability can request to move into Rookie division with 2006-2008 age group. (requires evaluation)
3) 2008 born girls with strong ability can request JR Girls division with 2004-2007 age group. (requires evaluation)
4) 2008 born players being introduced to game can request T-Ball division with 2009 age group.

5) INDOOR SKILL DEVELOPMENT CLINICS:

   We once again will be offering indoor clinics, open to all LDMBA players interested in furthering their baseball skill development.
   Please visit ONLINE Forms and complete the 'Winterball Clinic' application and we will contact you with dates and times.
                      

Over the past weekend all of our travel teams represented the association well putting in good showings
in the Ontario 'C' championships. The Bantam Lakers and Rookie Lakers both lost heartbreaker in the semi-finals.
Both teams lost by a run which came in the 7th innings of their respective games and both lost to the eventual
OBA champions.   The Peewee Lakers likewise lost in the semi-finals 8-4 to a team from Tilsonburg that went on
to win the OBA championship.   The Mosquito Lakers made it to the finals and lost a well contested battle
with a team from Tilsonburg.  We are very proud of all our teams and they should be proud of a very successful year
at all levels.  We hope to keep growing our competitive program and look forward to a great 2015 season!
