Registration for mixed houseleague, girls softball and the rep program is now available on-line as we get ready to take on another great baseball season. Though we encourage our members to register on-line, for those who have the inability or prefere not to use the internet to register, we will also be offering in-person registration to be determined at a time and place early in the new year. Note that the registration cutoff this year for earlybird fees is February 21, 2019, so ensure that you register in time to take advantage. 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 once a time and place has been determined. This would be highly appreciated to save our volunteers valuable time and effort. Mailing in a cheque is also always an option and the registration form and mailing address is available under the registration tab on the website. If you have any questions, feel free to browse our FAQ section under our Member Info menu or email us through our Contact Us section.
Thank you to all who participated at our AGM on Oct. 24, 2018. It was another great discussion with ideas that will definitely help this association grow and improve over the next few years.
Though we were almost able to fill every single position on the committee again for this coming season, we do have an urgent need to have the role of Sponsorship Manager filled. This role plays an active part of our pre-season activities and is essential in helping to reduce fees for all houseleague members along with providing local businesses with visibility in our community. Other openings we are hoping to fill are Awards Coordinator, Uniform Coordinator - Houseleague and BOMBA Representative. Feel free to read the volunteer descriptions here to see what the positions entail and if you feel you have the ability to help out in any way with these roles, please feel free to send any inquiries to Candice (email@example.com).
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.

August 31st Ribbon Cutting with contributors to the new additions including our own WMBA members
Next time you visit Joe Sams for the upcoming baseball season, you will notice a few additions that have been underway in the past little while. In between diamonds #1 and #2, a new sun shelter has been completed, and a new playground in the same vicinity is underway, forecasted to be completed in time for all to enjoy when the 2019 season begins. There will also be some newly paved pathways with benches along the way to make the trip down to diamonds #3 and #4 a little more tolerable. Thank you to all that have made this happen: the Lions Club of Waterdown, Councillor Judi Partridge, the City of Hamilton, along with contribution from the WMBA. More details can be found as reported in the Flamborough Review recently. Another reason to enjoy our growing community!
