Welcome to the 2017 Spring Registration!
This registration session will allow you to complete contact information, sign up for participation, and submit payment. Please read through each page carefully to ensure that all information is provided accurately. To complete registration through our secure site, please have your Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or checking account information available. Following the completion of this registration, you will see a charge on your account from REG.NGIN.COM.
Parent Participation: Like most sport organizations, SAMBA relies heavily on volunteers. As in the past SAMBA will be initiating a “Parent Participation deposit” because many of the jobs are done by the same few parents. This deposit can be post dated to June 30, 2017, once your coach has signed the participation form, your cheque will be returned. Participating can be in the form of, holding a board position, coaching, assistant coaching, score keeping, pitch counting, field prep, mowing lawns, weeding, concession, team parent, division manager, fundraiser organizer for a division. The parent participation deposit is $75.00 and we request a minimum of 4 hours be completed.
UNIFORMS: A uniform deposit is charged for Tadpole and Mosquito kids for the use of matching pants. This $25.00 deposit can be postdated to June 30 2017, once your pants have been returned your check will be returned.
DIVISION DESIGNATION: Divisions are determined by birth year. A request for underage player movement to a higher birth age division needs to be in writing. Movement then requires approval from SAMBA after the assessment day. (Movement can only take place if the higher levels have openings). Then SAMBA seeks approval from the BC Minor Baseball Association (BCMBA). Once request has been approved the difference in registration fees must be paid.
PLAYERS: are required to provide their own helmets, gloves, cleats and socks. It is also mandatory for athletes to wear an athletic supporter. Peewee division and above are also required to supply their own grey ball pants.
PAYMENT & DEPOSITS: Payments must be included with your registration, and we ask that you complete your registration online. Deposit cheques can be made out to “SAMBA”, and will be collected by division managers at a set time. The registrant pays the penalty for a Non-sufficient Funds (NSF) cheque. Financial support at www.kidsport.ca
PHOTOS: All players receive a team photo as a part of their registration fee.
THE SPRING SEASON: runs from mid April to late June. Typical days of participation are on the registration form and on the website. NOTE: Pee Wee, Bantam and Midget teams play interior interlock.
COACHING & CLINICS: All coaches are encouraged to take the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) on-line Initiation Coach. SAMBA pays for this course and it takes very little time (1.5hr) Coaches then have on-line access to numerous drills, etc. for a year. SAMBA will cover costs for other NCCP clinics as well. AS of 2011, coaches now need to submit Criminal Records check. Forms will be provided by SAMBA.
CONTACT: Coaches will contact Spring League players by mid-April. For all age categories, there will be an assessment day to create balanced teams. If you have registered and have not heard from a coach by the middle of April, please check the website or Facebook for information.
UMPIRING: If you and/or your child is interested in paid umpiring, please indicate so on the registration form. Interested persons need to attend a mandatory Umpire Clinic, which is funded through SAMBA
