Registration for Fall Ball is now open. Space will be limited so act fast. Price will be $60 same as last year. Players will receive a Newton Fall Ball jersey and Ball Cap with their registration fee.
Fall Ball is open to ALL skill levels where practices and in game instruction are suited for each player’s skill level. This is the time of year to try Baseball out even if you never have before. It is all about player development and in game coaching. This is a relaxed fun way of getting involved in this great game with the season running from September to around Thanksgiving, as the weather allows (and last year was spectacular!).
Players will attend mid week on field and/or batting cage practices with daytime games on weekends. Newton will also host their annual Invitational Fall Ball Tournament.
Newton is excited to offer Fall Ball in five age divisions:
Players in fall play up to the age group they will play next Spring so Tadpole is for Gr 2 & 3 boys and girls born in 2008 & 2009. Mosquito is 2006 & 2007, PeeWee is 2004 & 2005, Bantam 2003 & 2002, Midget 1999 – 2001. It’s a great way to experience the rule changes for the higher division before the more competitive spring season.
Players from any association or league are permitted to register and play Fall Ball in Newton as there are no geographic boundaries. We understand that many kids play other sports this time of year and accommodate as much participation as is possible.
Please ask your new school teacher if you can share this flyer with your classmates and maybe put it up in the school reception area.

Tadpole All Stars
PeeWee A All Stars Team:
Congratulations guys and girls! Good Luck!
The Tadpole final was a close fought game and an incredible display of defensive skill as Coquitlam triumphed narrowly over a strong Richmond team.
The PeeWee A final saw Ladner see off Surrey. The Bantam division was won by Tsawassen over a very strong Aldergrove side.
A tense Midget final was won at the death by our visitors all the way from Comox over a feisty Ladner team.
Thanks so much to everyone for coming out and giving us such a great weekend of Ball and to our volunteers without whom these tournaments couldn't happen and a very special thanks to Anneve Gillon for stepping in to oversee the event at the very last minute.
A limited stock now available in concession, first come first served.
The weather was nothing short of spectacular, the park was full, the ceremony tight and the games entertaining. It doesn't get much better. Enjoy the pictures and if you'd like to share some pictures of your own go to our Facebook page.
