SLMBA 2019 'AA' Baseball Registration
SLMBA is proud to continue to offer competitive ‘AA’ Baseball to all our players (including imports). Registration for ‘AA’ has a soft close on Feb.14th, at that point if there is enough players to continue with a team (min. 12) for the 2019 season, then registration will stay open until March 21st.
For the 2019 season there is a fundraising fee of $150.00 per player required at registration (recoverable via fundraising activities). This years SLMBA fundraiser is a cash raffle. Players will receive a booklet of 15 tickets to sell at $10.00 each to recover their fundraising fee.
Registration is open to Sylvan Lake and Import players born between 2000 and 2010. Evaluations will begin early to mid-March and finish prior to end of March. You will be contacted in regards to your player’s evaluation times by the end of February. All players are welcome to try-out for Sylvan Lake Mariners ‘AA’ teams, including import players. SLMBA currently allows each ‘AA’ team to select up to a maximum of 3 import players, unless there are not enough local players to field a team. Local players who do not secure a spot on a ‘AA’ team in their division after tryouts, will automatically be placed on an ‘A’ team. Import players who do not secure a spot on a ‘AA’ team, will have to report back to their local associations team. If their local association cannot field a team, that player can apply to SLMBA to play in Sylvan Lake on an ‘A’ team.
Once try-outs are complete, and teams are selected, coaches will meet with parents to discuss the teams “seed fees” and budget required for the season. These “seed fees” will cover the costs for tournaments, umpires, game baseballs, score books, coach training (if required), team apparel, etc. These team fees can range from approximately $275.00 to $400.00, depending on what amount the coaches and parents agree to. Teams can fund raise and/or get sponsorship to keep these fees to a minimum.
The above player has my permission to participate in the above program. I do hereby release, absolve, indemnify
and save harmless Sylvan Lake Minor Ball Association, their supervisors and coaches and any and all of them, from
claim which I or the said player may have as a result of his/her participation. I do assume all risks and hazards
incidental to this activity and herby waive all claims against the above organization.
