PMBA COVID-19 Response

At this time we are in daily communication with BP Sports facility and our spring training staff. Currently, the facilities are open and we will proceed under the assumption that we can hold spring training as originally planned.  If anything should change, we will update affected families and make adjustments as necessary.

Registration is proceeding as normal for the summer 2020 season.

Thank you for your patience.

Baseball Ontario COVID-19 Update: March 13, 2020

 

While the situation regarding COVID-19 is fluid, Baseball Ontario has implemented the following precautionary measures:

 

Level 3 Umpire SuperClinics:

SuperClinics will be canceled. Level 3 umpires will certify via an online exam as they did in 2019. The Exam will be made available March 23rd, and payments already received will be transferred to exam registrations.

 

Level 1 & Level 2 Umpire Clinics:

As of Monday, March 16th, there will be no in-person Level 1 & 2 clinics for the remainder of this season. We will introduce online training so that certification can be achieved for 2020. More details will be shared by April 3rd.

2020 Umpire Clinic will be held at Centennial High School 240 Thorold Rd. Welland, ON. Sat. Apr. 18, 8:30am - 4:00pm

There is a chance the clinic will end earlier than 4:00pm, but there will be a phone available for the kids to call their parents to pick them up if this happens.

Please make sure to bring a pen/pencil and a notebook or couple pieces of paper to take notes.  Also make sure to wear something comfortable that you can be active in as there is a practical/active participation aspect of the clinic.

When you arrive at the High School you will need to check in and pay cash for the clinic. Level 1 is $25 and Level 2 is $45 

 

To register for the clinic you need to go the the Baseball Ontario website.
