2018 Mosquito Pitching Clinic

Schedule Update

Due to unexpected changes to indoor facility use, we are having to move the clinic outdoors this year. An updated schedule notice will be posted here late April on time and location for the pitching clinic. It is anticipated that it will begin in later May and run into June (weekend fields are not open until May 19th).

To help players transition from Rookie to Mosquito, we are continuing our popular House League pitching training program this year. This program is free and open to all registered 2018 Mosquito players - you must have your 2018 registration ID with you to attend. All sessions in this program run indoors at Westside High School on some Sunday afternoons in April depending on gym & volunteer availability. The final schedule will be posted at least 1 week in advance. For questions regarding this program, families can email us at admin@playbaseball.ca and use the subject Mosquito Pitching Clinic - make sure to include your 2018 registration ID number.

2018 Umpire Clinic

The umpire clinic will be held May 5th at Westside from 9-4pm. As per Baseball Ontario's regulations, to remain active all umpires must re-certify each year. Cost this year is $35 for L1 and $50 for L2 payable at the clinic - cash only. To register for the umpire clinic, please access your umpire profile page here  on the Baseball Ontario website and select Development and 2018 Umpire clinics - then select the Orangeville Clinic number U18-43. For first time umpires, you need to create a profile first, then you can register.

Please arrive at 8:45am and bring indoor running shoes (cannot wear outdoor shoes), pen/pencil, glove and a drink or snack. Lunch break is short, there is not always time to go out for food. Please park in East lot and use southeast doors next to the gym.

House League Uniforms & Equipment Info

Players must have their own batting helmet and glove. Baseball shoes, plastic bottom cleats or running shoes can be used. Hats, jerseys, pants (except Tball) team bats, etc are provided by the league. Uniforms are handed out before your first game on Opening Day.

Team Assignments Now Posted

When checking your team assignments, if you are using a phone, please use a PC or Tablet to see all the information before sending us an email with questions on Red circles. The Manage PWR tab is only for Volunteering, Play With Requests (PWR) and Team assignments - it does not contain information about registration or payment status - for that information use Manage Registration - View/Print.

Team assignments will begin to post late today or tomorrow and will be completed by 8pm on Tuesday May 15. To locate your team assigment(s), log into your dashboard, select Manage PWR and look in the Division Column - beside "House" it will show the team number. The team number will be displayed on all schedule etc information. (see example below)

This team number will be used to find the time & location of the first practice and all other team schedule information. As most coaches work full time, your coach may not contact you beforehand - so you will need to use the posted schedules. For new members, scroll down and read the section titled "Why haven't I received an email ...".

Schedules will be posted as per the dates shown in the 2018 Important Dates List (left side of this page).
