Thank you to all who participated at our AGM on Oct 22, 2019. 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. We are always on the search for more volunteers for the upcoming season though, so feel free to get in touch if you want to contribute!
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.

WMBA Hosting Baseball Ontario Umpire Clinic
The WMBA Needs You!
Looking to umpire this season for WMBA? Wait no further, Waterdown baseball needs you! Along with our regular houseleague program, we are again hosting many tournaments this year, which includes both rep and houseleague tournaments. To get us prepared, WMBA is once again announcing that it will once again host a Level 1/2 clinic at Carlisle Arena on Sunday, April 26th from 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM. Fees are set at $25 for level 1 and $45 for level 2, payment upon arrival. We are also planning a level 3 course and will update when details have been worked out. 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.
To register, please follow the following:
Step 1. If you are new to umpiring, you must create a profile at the below website to get your card number. Otherwise, go to step 2.
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 minimum. If you plan to attend another clinic instead of this one, or if you should have any other questions, please contact
- Umpire in Chief @
or (905) 630-9625. We look forward to having many umpires on staff this season!
We are working diligently on getting our registration open in the immediate future. Please be patient and we will send out an email once the option to register is available. Note that this year's registration process will include an acknowledgement of the current Rowan's Law requirements by all athletic organizations.
We currently have a Treasurer in place but we are working on adding a replacement for this position, the sooner the better. If anyone has any inclination on taking on this resposibility, please get in contact with president Candice Rivait (
). More details for the responsibilities for the position can be found in our Volunteer Role document.
