Message from the CMFA President

Hello CMFA players, families & friends;

Well it’s that time of the year again.  The time when we rush home from work only to rush back out to the park.  A time when we eat dinner at 4 in the afternoon or 9 at night.  A time to cheer on the kids and enjoy new found friendships.

Please Remember:

This is a game
Everyone is here to have fun
Coaches are Volunteers and
Umpires are Human.
Be Respectful!!

On behalf of the entire executive I would like to wish you all great success this season, no matter how you measure it.

Have Fun and Play Ball.

Stan Zelmer
President
Cloverdale Minor Fastpitch Association

2017 Volunteer sign up

Hello CMFA families;

Another season is quickly approaching and I’m sure we’re all looking forward to watching our kids play some ball!

Please take some time to read this information carefully. 

As you are likely aware, CMFA is run solely by volunteers and we depend upon our parents to keep things running smoothly. We thus require families to complete 4 hours of volunteer duties per player during the course of the season (2 hours per player for LTP and T-Ball). Unfortunately, we have found in the past that we run very thin on help during the first half of the season and have to hire help or have a few dedicated volunteers working excessively. As the slots fill up, towards the end of the season, parents may then find that there are no more available slots so their volunteer cheques are then cashed. In order to avoid this, it is encouraged that you sign up as soon as you can.

Please read the below carefully and if you have any questions, please contact me via email at cloverdalefastpitchvolunteers@gmail.com

1) There are various duties available which are: concession during regular season games (Mon-Thurs); concession during tournament weekends; field preparation during tournament weekends; pre-season park cleanup.

2) In order to fulfil your volunteer requirements, you must receive credit for 4 hours of duties per player (2 hours per player for Learn to Play and T-Ball).

3) You must sign up for at least one shift (per child) that occurs before May 15th. You must sign up online and do so PRIOR to April 15th (sooner if possible) so that we can appropriately plan. If you fail to do so, your first volunteer cheque may be cashed. 

4) You are welcome to sign up for all your shifts at any time but you must complete sign up for all shifts no later than June 1st or your second volunteer cheque may be cashed.

5) IMPORTANT: In order to credit you appropriately, please ensure you indicate the name of your child and division by putting it in brackets as part of your first name, for example: First name: Wendy (Sydney Peewee)  Last name:  Harris

6) Shifts that are cancelled for any reason (including weather) will have to be made up at a later date.

Links to sign up are as follows:

Clean up/Park prep (Will take place on Sunday March 19th; 9am-1pm):  https://www.volunteersignup.org/34FQ8

Tournament Field Crew:  https://www.volunteersignup.org/KL4A7

Tournament Concession:  https://www.volunteersignup.org/L97HC

Concession Regular Season: https://www.volunteersignup.org/4Y48A

Again if you have any questions please email me at: cloverdalefastpitchvolunteers@gmail.com

Thanks for your assistance with this!

Volunteer Coordinator

Umpire recruiting & clinics

Hello CMFA players, family and friends:

In preparation for the upcoming fastball season, our UIC’s (Umpires in Chief) are looking for more able people to join the Cloverdale umpiring crew.  Umpiring is a great hobby, and comes with many benefits, especially for younger umpires who get involved, as it’s a great confidence booster, and you make money doing it.

Our UIC’s will be starting their annual winter gym Umpiring sessions at William Watson Elementary, starting Wednesday, January 18th at 7:00pm – 8:30.  These clinic sessions are free to attend, and are open to anyone (players, parents, or coaches) interested in finding out more about umpiring, as well as for returning umpires.   Minimum age to start umpiring is 12.

Day & time:  Wednesday evenings @ 7:00pm – 8:30pm (starting Jan. 18th)
 
 Location:  William Watson Elementary at 16450 80th ave.

For questions or more info. please contact our Cloverdale UIC’s (Umpires in Chief)  Kevin Korman @  kevinkorman9@yahoo.ca  or Chris Schoepp @ mailto:cschoepp3d@gmail.com

Thanks,
Your Cloverdale Fastpitch Team!
