Wherever you're spending money in the neighbourhood or whoever you'd like to get involved reach out now and ask the question. Click here to see some of the options and suggestions.
Please click on the link below to register for fall ball. Note that fall ball is open to NCBA members as a priority. If you are from another association and wish to register for fall ball, please email email@example.com to confirm whether we can accommodate you.
After enjoying great success at the Provincials at all participating levels of the club this year there is a real enthusiasm around playing Baseball into the Fall Season. We have commitments from coaching staff at four levels so far and will be putting out Bantam, Midget, PeeWee and Mosquito teams. The Fall Ball Season is short playing from mid September to after Thanksgiving as weather allows (but it is supposed to cooperate!). The fall season is open to all, and is a pretty relaxed and more casual affair with generally 1 practice and a weekend game each week with maybe one tournament.
We recognize that many of our athletes are involved in other sports, which as an Association we actively encourage, and make accommodations for.
You will all be playing up now to the division you'll be playing in next Spring. We look forward to welcoming new Mosquito's coming up from Tadpole, a great introduction to pitching and stealing before Spring. Our senior Mosquitos are excited to play PeeWee and even more excited to be playing on the Bantam diamond and likewise our Peewees to play Bantam and Bantam up to Midget.
Mosquito's are born '05 & '06, PeeWee's '03 & '04 Bantam '01 & '02
Anyone outside our boundaries is also welcome to come and join us and we'd encourage you to ask your classmates if they're interested in giving Baseball a go this Fall - It's going to be a BLAST!
Registration will be open soon. Email us if you are interested in playing and/or have any questions.
A team of great folks participated in today's community walk, picking up trash around our neighbourhood. Newton Business Improvement Association President Philip Aguirre, a huge supporter and sponsor of our Baseball Association, led our volunteers around the Newton business core cleaning up the neighbourhood.
Newton Canadian AA Mosquitos lost in an epic 10 inning heartbreaker to the Surrey host team in the finals. Though they lost the final game, everyone's a winner. The club's participation at Lionel Courchene Park was epic. Camp Newton was a fantastic success and all the boys, girls and parents cheered one another on. The game of baseball was the biggest winner this weekend. Way to go players, coaches, volunteers and of course, parents!!

After a close, hard fought game, Newton Canadians Mosquito AA team came back to win in the bottom of the open 6th against a strong Cloverdale AAA side. Well done players and coaches and to the parents & supporters for baking in the sun all weekend. Thanks to Burnaby Minor, their Umps and volunteers for hosting a great Tournament and kudos to all the other teams with strong showings! Send your pictures to us here and for even more pics check out Facebook.
Coaches take note: This warm up drill could catch on! Make sure you are properly warmed up too before you attempt any of these moves! It apparently worked as they went on to win the Tournament!
Another year and another Cook tournament completed! Thank you to all those who participated and we at NCBA sincerely hope you all had a great time. Thanks to all our Newton volunteers for their many hours of tireless efforts to have the tournament run smoothly. Thanks to our hardworking umpires who had to stand and work in the heat for all our 75 games that were happening this weekend. You are the best!
Winners: Midget AA - Whalley Seniors, Bantam A - Langley Blazers, Peewee A - Campbell River Tyees (in extra innings!), Mosquito AA - Surrey Jays, Tadpole - White Rock.
I personally hope all of the teams who participated have a great summer ball season and I'm glad the Cook tournament was part of it.

Happy Fathers Day and Congratulations to everyone who participated this Spring. Thanks to all the kids, parents, coaches, umpires and volunteers who made it such a success. The closing ceremonies were on another spectacular Sunday. The pancake breakfast was as tasty as ever, thanks to the ladies in concession slaving over the hot grill. Thanks to Club President Ben Dias for arranging the Bouncy castles from the City of Richmond, the kids had a blast.
Congratulations to Mark Stocco, Umpire of the Year.
Congratulations to Brad Swart on winning Coach of the Year!
The setting was perfect on the deck at the Surrey Golf Club. The BBQ Buffet rocked as much as the band. The beer flowed and the dancing went on 'til midnight. Thanks to all the volunteers for coordinating it all, to everyone who participated, to the many, many prize donors and those who donated at the silent auction! We'll be going even BIGGER next year, don't miss it!
Playoff Baseball, a BBQ, an awesome band - "Braidwood", crafts for the kids, sack races, fire trucks and on, and on... A great event put on by the Food Bank, Protein for People and BC Unions. Thank you on behalf of a grateful community for putting on such an awesome event!
Families from the association and neighbouring communities packed the park. The Movie and popcorn was completely FREE, sponsored by the Newton Business Improvement Association. Many, many thanks for your generous support and to all the volunteers who made it happen!

The Ross Tournament is underway! We have 31 teams in four divisions playing this weekend. Follow along with the scores and standings Click Here.
Thanks to everyone who made Movie Night In The Park such a HUGE Success!
The Movie Night in the Park was GREAT! Everyone enjoyed the Sandlot kids movie, a not to be missed baseball classic. Boston Pizza's Mascot Lionel was a huge hit with young and old alike. The field sprinklers didn't go off (yes, there was that possibility! They started to come on on the other fields but the city intervened and turned them off). Pizza, hot dogs, popcorn and safe fun in our local park; what an evening!!! Thanks to all who participated.
A group of Volunteers led by Club President, Ben Dias, made presentations to each grade at the elementary school behind Unwin Park, Kinvig. At the open day the following week we showed the kids the game, handed out hotdogs and signed up a bunch of new players. Want a showcase at your school?? Email email@example.com
