Thank you to all who participated at our AGM on Oct 28, 2015. It was another great discussion with ideas that will definitely help this association grow and improve over the next few years.
Once again we were almost able to fill every single position on the committee, compared to a handful of people who have been running the association for the past few years. This will be president Mike Kinnear's second year running the show after a great freshman season.
Thank you once again to all the parents and players for your support and enthusiasm over the past season. A special thank you to the committee members that worked to help run the association while wearing many hats.

Upcoming Select Tryouts
Select Ontario Baseball Association
The baseball season is upon us and it is time for tryouts for our Select baseball program. Select teams are formed by tryout sessions with eligible players registered for houseleague play. The teams play under the auspices of the Select Ontario Baseball Association (SOBA). Play involves games with teams from the surrounding area & tournaments throughout the summer. As we near the beginning of the houseleague season, we will be releasing times and places for tryouts for teams in divisions that will be fielded. The following tryouts are currently scheduled to take place:
Mosquito Select Tryouts:
Monday, May 9th from 6:00 pm - 8:00 PM at Waterdown Memorial Park
Wednesday, May 11th from 6:00 pm - 8:00 PM at Waterdown Memorial Park
Now that tax time is upon us, we have had multiple requests asking for the WMBA to send out tax receipts from previous year's registration. Please note that you can access all your previous years invoices from your player's registration history. To do this, log into your account (the My Account button at the very top of the WMBA website once you have logged in), and your player's registration history should be displayed. Beside the paid column, there is an icon (it looks like a little credit card) for the registration session that you are interested in that you can select. Selecting this will display the registration invoice that you can print to use for your fitness tax credit.
Baseball registration for the coming season is now available on-line as we get ready to take on another great baseball season. We will also be offering in-person registration on Saturday, Feb. 6th and 27th for those who opt not to use the internet to register. Note that if you have the ability to register on-line but do not want to use our on-line payment system, you can register without paying and drop off your payment at one of our in-person sessions. This would be highly appreciated to save our valuable volunteers time and effort. Also, there is one change to our baseball offerings this year that we will announce, but days and times will mostly stay intact from our previous seasons. If you have any questions, feel free to browse our FAQ section under our Member Info menu or email us through our new Contact Us section. Thank you for your patience.
