Welcome to 2017 Minor Baseball!
Welcome to another year of Osoyoos Minor Baseball! Our baseball association is set to begin it’s 3rd season of minor baseball in Osoyoos and the surrounding area. Our association serves the kids of Osoyoos, Oliver, Keremeos, Rock Creek and everywhere in between. Again this year we are affiliated with BC Baseball to ensure that our players receive the best opportunity to play competitive, organized baseball in the Okanagan.
BC Baseball is the province’s oldest and most far-reaching minor baseball association and we are thrilled to have the opportunity for our kids to play among that system.
This season the OMBA is thrilled to be competing at the following levels:
- T-Ball 7U
- Tadpole 9U
- Mosquito 11U
- PeeWee 13U
Our season is set to begin next week, Wednesday, April 5 at 6:00pm at the West Bench Ball Field adjacent the Osoyoos High School.
Our first night will be the always exciting and energizing, Opening Night Tailgate Barbecue! We will have hotdogs and drinks for the kids, along with the opportunity to meet their coaches and teammates. This night, we will also be distributing the season practice schedule, (including times / locations) and distributing the uniforms for the kids.
It is a great way to kickoff the season. Please have the kids bring their ball gloves for a chance to play some catch with their teammates and coaches!
Tuesday, April 11 will be our first night of practice.
Lastly, on April 14, the BC Coaches Caravan will be coming to town! This is a practice that is run by some of the top baseball coaches in North America! Those that participated last year will attest to the quality of instruction these coaches will provide our kids AND parents! One parent is required to be present prepared to play catch with their child.
So, to recap, these are the important dates in the next two weeks:
- Wednesday, April 5 at 6pm (West Bench Field): Opening Night Tailgate Barbecue! Meet the coaches, teammates and collect your uniforms. Schedules distributed tonight.
- Tuesday, April 11: Practices begin tonight!
- Saturday, April 8: Penticton Umpire Clinic (for all our Umpires, remember please make sure you are registered)
- Friday, April 14: BC Coaches Caravan (time and details to follow once confirmed with BC Baseball)
- We are so excited to be back at the ballpark, and we know your kids will love it too!
Let’s play ball!
