‘Tis the season for baseball registration if you’re thinking ahead

Players can save money on next year’s fees until the end of January

It might be low on the priority list right now to be thinking about baseball.

But the Chemainus & District Baseball Association has opened registration for 2019 and there’s an opportunity now to save some money before the season starts.

Early registration continues until Jan. 31, 2019. Regular registration then kicks in until Feb. 28, 2019.

There will be a $25 late fee starting on March 1 and acceptance is subject to space being available.

Registration is every Tuesday (except Christmas and New Year’s Days) at the former St. Joseph’s School gym from 5-9:30 p.m. during indoor clinics.

Costs are as follows: Rally Cap (2012-2015 birth years) $55 early, $65 regular; Tadpole (2010-2011 birth years) $90 early, $100 regular; Mosquito (2008-2009 birth years) $110 early, $130 regular; Peewee (2006-2007 birth years) $130 early, $150 regular; Bantam (2004-2005 birth years) $150 early, $175 regular; Midget (2002-2003 birth years) $150 early, $175 regular; and Junior Men’s (2001 and earlier) $200.

Post dated volunteer cheques will also be required.

Kids can pick their jersey number this season for many divisions and will get a keeper shirt/jersey with their name and number choice on it. Number selection will be determined by registration order.
