We'd like to thank everyone who has registered up to this point. For those still looking to register for this upcoming season, registration will be available until the end of the month unless your specific division fills up before then, which may be the case as spots are filling quickly. We're hoping the weather will cooperate to allow us to open our season on time!
Here are some important dates for our summer of baseball:
May 14th - Houseleague Opening Day (pending city approval)
June 8th -10th - Annual Houseleague Tournament
July 20th - 22nd - PeeWee Rep Tournament
July 27th - 29th - Houselegue Championship Wrap-Up Weekend
Looking to umpire this season for WMBA? Wait no further, Waterdown baseball needs you! Along with our regular houseleague program, we are hosting many tournaments this year, which includes both rep and houseleague tournaments. To get us prepared, WMBA is proud to announce that it will once again host a Level 1/2 clinic at Carlisle Arena on Sunday, April 29th from 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM. Registration and administration is all done through the Umpire section on the Baseball Ontario website (https://www.baseballontario.com/Umpires). To find our more about becoming an umpire, umpire certification information is here. If you are new to umpiring, you must create a profile here to get your card number. Once you have your card number, you can register here and select the "go to register for clinic" button to register (Affiliate: Central Ontario Baseball Association, Club: Waterdown Minor Baseball, Clinic #: U18-65 for April 29th). Fill out the form and you should receive confirmation in 24-48 hrs. Note: Umpires must attend the whole day in order to umpire otherwise you will have to register for another clinic! Also, we are limiting the minimum age for new umpires to 13 years old. Previous year's umpires will be accepted if under the minumum. If you should have any questions, please contact
- Umpire in Chief @
or (905) 630-9625. We look forward to having many umpires on staff this season!
Reminder: Our second and last in-person session is tomorrow at Harry Howell, 10 am - 1pm. Bring cash or cheque only please.
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. For those who opt not to use the internet to register, we will also be offering in-person registration on Saturday, Feb. 10th and Saturday, March 3rd, 10am - 1pm at Harry Howell Arena for both sessions. Note that the registration cutoff is quite a bit earlier this year for earlybird fees (February 20th), so ensure that you register on time. 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 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.
If you are interested in becoming a coach for the 2018 season, the coaching application form is now available online in our Coaches/Umpires/Volunteers section.

Submissions for Rep and Select are due by August 31st, 2017 at 11:59pm. Rep and Select coaching positions will be awarded by mid-September 2017. Houseleague coaching applications will be available until the start of the upcoming houseleague season (dates pending).
