Cougars 9U Rookie Baseball
The Camrose 9U Rookie Baseball Program is committed to providing players a program designed for all skill sets and athletic abilities. The intention of the program is to create a fun and fully inclusive playing environment with a focus on skill development, sportsmanship, and recreation. However, players in this program will have skill and experience levels that range from introductory (eg. never played on a baseball team before) to rep player calibre. These teams will mainly play teams within the association but with the potential of other teams within the County of Camrose but in close proximity to Camrose to minimize travel as much as possible.
What are you Committing to?
Your initial CMBA registration fee (taken at the time of registration) will cover basic expenses related to playing ball for our organization such as insurance, basic equipment, practice time, games, etc. Once teams are formed, any additional fees will be at the discretion of the teams to fund any additional activities, events or apparel the team wishes to partake in.
Team Equipment and Uniforms
Once teams are selected, they will be assigned team Equipment and Jerseys for which a $250 post dated cheque will be required as a deposit and will be forwarded to the CMBA Equipment Director to hold until the return and inspection of the equipment and team jerseys.
Families will need to ensure that players are fit with their own required baseball equipment (bat, glove, helmet, water bottle, athletic footwear & personal protection), jerseys will be supplied to the players.
The Player Evaluation Process
In April, players who have registered for the 9U Baseball Program will be required to attend evaluation sessions for their registered division. The evaluations are conducted under the direction of the CMBA Board and selected evaluators. Evaluations will be based on the players age category and current skill level. This enables the CMBA Board to ensure that teams are divided equally and appropriate depending on the number of registrants at each division.
The Evaluation Policy/Program is posted on the CMBA website if you wish to reference it for information on the Evaluation Process.
Once the evaluation process is over, team rosters will be placed on CMBA's website.
Coaches will be chosen based on the applications submitted to CMBA and the Coach Selection Policy. We strongly encourage parents to take an interest in coaching as it is an integral part of our ability to field teams.
