Registrations 

How do I know which division to register my child in?

          All levels are determined by birth year. Baseball Alberta has renamed each level this year and now goes with the following:

  • 9U (Formerly Rookie) Born 2010/2011 
  • 11U (Formerly Mosquito) Born 2008/2009 
  • 13U (Formerly Peewee) Born 2006/2007 
  • 15U (Formerly Bantam) Born 2004/2005 
  • 18U (Formerly Midget) Born 2001,2002,2003 
  • Rally Cap remains unchanged. Born 2012,2013 and first part of 2014 (must be 5 by May 1st) 

What is the refund policy?

Refunds will be considered on a case by case basis. The board will consider the reason for withdrawal, along with the timing of the withdrawal when determining if a refund is applicable. Please note that refunds may be subject to a 10% administrative charge.

Do you have T-Ball? 

Traditional T-ball doesn’t exist within BMBA. For the younger kids (5,6,7) we run our Rally Cap program. This mainly consists of skill development in a fun atmosphere as opposed to playing actual games.

 

Can I register my daughter in baseball?

BMBA welcomes both boys and girls, although Beaumont does also have a Fastball Association (Beaumont Blitz) which many of our girls have moved to.

 

Can I request that my child play on the same team as another child?

BMBA will not honor requests to play with others, with the exception of siblings. 

 

My kid is very skilled and quite mature for his/her age, can I register them in a higher level?

No. At least initially, please register in the age appropriate level. You may make a request with the director of division you wish to play in. If there is room once registration closes and skills have been evaluated, you MAY be able to switch to a different level.

 

Why does the AA registration cost more than the house registration?

The initial registration fees include a $50 evaluation fee.

 

Why is Waitlist/AA my only option in my requested division?

The House Division you are trying to register for is full. You will be contacted in the event a spot is available. Please ensure you do complete the registration forms for the Waitlist as we use the date/time stamp to determine priority.

 

What does the “level-up” fee go towards?

This fee helps pay for the extra costs associated with AA baseball. Please refer to our AA Information Document for more details

 

Is there an option to pay in installments?

At this time installments are not available. In the event you are in a position of financial hardship, please contact the registrar, registrar@beaumontminorball.com

 

I indicated that I am willing to coach/manage. How do I know if I’ve been selected?

AA- Head coach will be determined after review of all Coaching application forms, in mid March. Head coach will then choose his/her assistants and manager(s) based on teams and indication on registration form.

House: All division directors will have list of willing volunteers and will contact you prior to the season beginning 

 

My child wants to tryout for AAA with another association, is there anything I have to do beforehand?”

If Trying out for AAA with another association please register (free of charge) on our website first.  Select the appropriate Division, and choose Tryout/Release Registration. This will allow us to release player if successful at tryouts and will also hold a spot for player within our association.
