Newton Canadian Baseball Association Return to Play Plan

Hello,

I hope this letter finds you and your family healthy!

Last week BC Minor Baseball provided all related associations with its Return to Play (RTP) plan. The plan is onerous yet workable. Last night we met as an executive and reviewed the guidelines. The guidelines in basic form require all kids to stay home if sick, physically distance at two meters, maintain a sanitized environment and this must be monitored by coaches. BC Minor Baseball also requires new waivers for liability. It is clear that this will be a lot of risk to put on a volunteer coach for kids who may have a hard time adhering to the rules. For kids involved in tadpole or under we have made the hard decision to cancel baseball for the season.

We are currently canvassing coaches in Mosquito, Pee Wee, Bantam and Midget to determine what interest we have in forming teams. We will advise of next steps for these divisions as we progress through the BC Minor Baseball phased return system. We have an NCBA-RTP plan and are submitting it for approval.

We would like to take this time to thank you for all your patience as we navigate the pandemic and make the best decisions we can with the information as it comes to us.

On behalf of your NCBA executive,

Mr. Ryan Hall

1st Vice President

June 19, 2020

2020 COOK Tournament Cancelled

Hi all

We are hoping the new guidelines reducing some of our restrictions we can get back to baseball soon.  This will still mean some changes to accommodate social distancing measures however and unfortunately that means we need to cancel the Cook Tournament for the year.  We will be issuing refunds to all teams currently registered.  Please allow a couple of weeks for your refund to return to your credit card.

Thanks!  NCBA Exec. 

Spring Season Refunds and Ross Tournament

Hello all

Please see below for Baseball BC's announcement on suspension of all baseball until further notice due to Covid 19.  We are currently refunding Spring baseball fees paid to the same credit card used for payment.  Please allow some time to see your refund on your statement.  

In addition, we have cancelled the Spring Ross Tournament and will be refunding this payments as well.

Please stay safe everyone in these difficult times and lets hope we can resume this wonderful sport in the coming months. 

    Suspension of Play - Covid-19 Concerns

    By Webmaster 03/13/2020, 10:00am PDT

    Effective immediately all Newton Baseball activities including but not limited to practices, clinics, etc. are suspended as per communication from Baseball BC found below. We are complying with the recommendation for the safety of our players, families and community. 

    As per Baseball BC communicated on March 17, 2020:

    Effective immediately Baseball BC has extended the suspension of all sanctioned in person baseball activity indefinitely.

    Baseball BC sanctioned activities include but are not limited to, all tournaments, practices, games, coach and umpire education and team building activities. The intent of this suspension is to limit situations of physical contact.

    The COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic is rapidly changing the way that we, as global citizens, think, act, gather, learn, and live our daily lives. That includes how we play baseball.

    With the most recent announcements from the public heath officials and the government, Baseball B.C. is suspending all sanctioned in person baseball activity indefinitely.

    This decision is difficult, but it is our duty to help society follow social distancing protocols (keeping at least 6 feet apart and avoiding congregate settings). It is our hope that by doing this, we will all play a small, but important part in flattening the curve in the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. We will continue to monitor the situation and take our guidance from public health officials, the government, and Baseball Canada. 

    Baseball B.C. is committed to doing the best we can for the safety and well-being of our players, families, volunteers, and fans.

    We urge all member organizations and affiliates to enforce and support the suspension of in person baseball activities in their respective associations as well.  

    Baseball BC and its member organizations pride themselves on providing a safe haven for our youth to enjoy the outdoors and learn the sport of baseball.

    Baseball BC will review advice from health and senior sport organizations as they are provided and will monitor the situation in hopes that baseball activities will resume as soon as it’s safe to do so.  We will issue further notices when it is appropriate to do so.

    Interested in Coaching Fall Ball?

     

     

    Fall ball is a developmental opportunity and is designed to have less competitive focus than spring baseball. It is structured so players can play another sport in the fall and still participate.

     

    If you are wanting to get started as a coach -  Fall ball is a good time to step up and get involved.

     

    Please let us know your interest by contacting Kellie Simicak at secretary@newtonbaseball.com.

    Fall Ball - South Fraser Giants - Midget AAA

     

                                               

    The South Fraser Giants will be offering Midget AAA fall ball this year.  Fall ball will run through the months of September & October.  Separate winter training opportunities will be offered in the following months to those interested. The team will use Holly Park in Surrey as it’s homefield, this fall.  

    This is a great opportunity for Midget aged kids to get quality coaching instruction & development opportunities.  The goal of fall ball is strictly player development.

    There will be two practices a week & double headers games on the weekends.  The team will also be in a tournament, which will be available for a select number of players.  Players will also be introduced to a strength & conditioning program throughout the fall. 

    We understand some athletes may be busy with other sports.  We welcome dual athletes & part time players for the fall season.  

    The program will be run by Head Coach Tyler Lawson.  He will be joined by a team of assistant coaches.  More information on the coaching staff will be released closer to the fall season. 

    Cost: $215

    Players will receive two practice shirts & a hat with registration.

    Summer Ball FAQs

     

    What is Summer Ball?

    Summer Ball is an ‘All-Star’ program that is available in each division from Tadpole through Midget.  

     

    When is Summer Ball season?

    Summer Ball begins with assessments and tryouts in early-mid June, with games beginning the July 1 long weekend.  Mosquito Summer Ball season is quite intense and includes approximately 2 games per week throughout June, plus practices and tournament(s).  Teams that are successful in the June schedule of games (qualifiers) will qualify for Provincial Championships (August Long Weekend).  The Provincial Championships signify the end of the Summer Ball season.  

     

    Who is eligible to play Summer Ball? 

    All players who played in either Surrey Canadian or Newton Canadian programs in the Spring season are eligible to try out for the Summer Ball teams.

     

    How are players selected?

    The 3 Summer Ball teams will be determined by open tryouts.  After the tryouts, the division coordinators and coaches will evaluate the results and make the final determination as to which players will make the team or not.  Depending on how many kids try out, some unfortunately could not be selected for a team.

     

    What are the Commitment Requirements?

    Summer Ball requires a significant commitment.  Players need to commit to being available for practices, games and tournaments from the end of June through the August long weekend.  Rosters will be large enough to make it okay (possibly) to miss a week during the season, but not during Provincials when we will want all players available.  

     

    Where are Provincials held?

    Mosquito Summer Ball Provincials will be held in:

    • AAA (Tier 2)        North Delta
    • AA                          Oceanside
    • A                             Kamloops

     

    PeeWee AA Provincial Champions

    Congratulations to our Surrey Newton PeeWee AA team on their dramatic win at the 2018 BC provincials. As Provincial Champions they are representing us as Team BC at a major tournament in San Diego.

    Valley of Champions

    Both Surrey Newton Rep teams acquitted themselves well at the weekend's Valley of Champions Tournament in Kelowna. PeeWee AA capped off a dominant tournament performance by beating Abbotsford in the finals while the Bantam AA fell just short against a strong Prince George side.

    Midget AA Win In Dramatic Fashion

    In a tight back and forward game a sac bunt and suicide squeeze at the top of seven sealed the deal! The merged Surrey / Newton Midget AA Mets bested a strong North Shore team in the final game of spring. A great way to end the season and for the aged out players to finish their tenure at the Club. Shimpachi "Patch" Meta will be returning to Japan after three years with the club.

    PeeWee A Newton Timbers win Spring Tier
