Please be advised that due to unforeseen circumstances the Sylvan Lake Minor Baseball Pub Night Fundraiser is being postponed. We are going to look into another date and will inform everyone as soon as it is booked.
Hockey Central still would like everyone to stop by to enjoy the band and have a few drinks. They will be honoring the donation of 50 cents per drink purchased Saturday evening as well as 20% of the memorabilia purchased over the weekend.
Spring is finally here! It is nice to see the snow melting away at the ball diamonds and soon enough we will all be enjoying the spring weather while watching our youth play ball in the evening sun.
While our coaches have been hard at work developing your child with the skills necessary to be successful on the field, we are asking for your help. In addition to our annual Chocolate Almond fundraiser, we also need each player in our association to sell one raffle ticket booklet each. Our goal is to meet our donation committment for our new diamond in the Fox Run subdivision for the 2019 ball season. We are here to help your child get to the next level by building better baseball facilities and providing quality programs. That comes with help and commitment from everyone. Our fundraising efforts are critical for the development and success of our association for our current players as well as our future players.
We appreciate your generosity and support for our athletes with Sylvan Lake Minor Ball. Please encourage your player to sell tickets to family, friends and neighbours.
Thank you! The players in our association will both benefit and greatly appreciate your support. Your team manager will be tasked with handing out the raffle booklets to each player.
(This notice is being Emailed a second time due to an issue with all members of Sylvan Minor Ball not receiving it. Unfortunately there was an issue with TeamPages Email delivery program and not everyone received the notice. Apologies to all.)
Happy Monday Everyone!
Thank You for supporting Sylvan Lake Minor Ball. Our association has grown by leaps and bounds in the past 5 years and we look forward to the future of Softball and Baseball here in our beautiful town.
SLMBA is pleased to announce that we will again be hosting our Annual Pub Night Fundraiser at Hockey Central! Our association and programs rely on our fundraising efforts – without it, we are not able to purchase the equipment and implement the programs it takes to make our teams sustainable and competitive. Fundraising also offsets our fees so that we can make baseball and softball affordable for everyone.
This year, our fundraising efforts are going to be directed towards building a new ball diamond , as our association has outgrown our current facilities. Please come out and support us. Round up the parents on your team! Our Annual Pub Night is a great way to meet and get to know everyone on your team at the beginning of the season:)

Sylvan Lake Minor Ball
As we get real close to the season , we wanted to reach out to everyone again with the reminder regarding our clinic in Red Deer on April 14th and 15th, 2018.
In summary – we are in need of umpires in Innisfail we need 3 – 4 [I need to confirm the boys are coming back], Sylvan Lake 5 [we often have players umping so we need to figure this in to our total numbers], Lacombe 3 [as far as I know at this time again we often have players umping so more umpires help with the scheduling of games].
The real issues / shortages we see at this point are in Red Deer (10 ) and Stettler( 10 ) in fact, in both these locations the situation is looking really serious.
Adult umpires – we could use 5 for Ladies and 5 for Men’s. For adult umpires starting out we get them doing bases at this level and plates at a minor level until they are comfortable with their plate game. Our main concern is making sure no one gets hurt. We expect mistakes and at this level of ball so do the players. The key to our MEN’s and WOMEN’s games is working with a senior umpire to get started and comfortable.
Please talk to your son or daughter and ask them if they would be interested in becoming an umpire this season! RDSUA commitment to new recruits is phenomenal. All new umpires will be paired with a mentor to help them through the season. It is a fun way to make some extra money this spring!
Please go to RDSUA website to register!
