NCCP coaching clinics

To all prospective coaches for 2016:

New Westminster is hosting an NCCP Coaching Clinic March 5th and 6th.  Information on the clinic is available on the Baseball BC website at: http://www.baseball.bc.ca/page.php?pg=5

The clinic is composed of 4 segments (4 hours each) scheduled for 9:00 am and 1:00 pm each day at Lord Kelvin School - 1010 Hamilton St.  If you're interested in signing up, please email Steve Kain, New West President.  Steve's email address is skainnwll@hotmail.com.

The cost is $60 per module ($240 total).  All registrants will have to pay for the courses themselves but LMB will reimburse any coaches who attend from our organization.

Note that Little League does not require that its coaches be certified, but these courses will give you some valuable ideas, drills, and things to watch out for.



Registration for 2016 is now OPEN!

Note for children born in 2005 or later, Little League International has changed the Age determination date to August 31 of the year the player was born, which may affect the players' baseball age and eligibility for certain divisions.  Please refer to this chart to determine your child's baseball age.  If you have any questions, please contact the registrar@littlemountainbaseball.com.

Please note we are unable to accommodate friend requests for our Minors and Majors programs (9-12) since teams in these higher divisions are formed via a draft system. We will do our best to accommodate ONE friend request in the younger divisions.

Assessments are used to help coaches place players in an appropriate division for their age and skill level and are MANDATORY.  Please note that a make-up assessment is UNLIKELY due to a longer timeframe and later assessment date. We can not guarantee that non-attendees will be placed on a team.   Please plan accordingly and we thank you for your understanding.

Blastball, Rally-Cap 1/T-Ball, Rally-Cap 2/Mini-Minor B, and Challenger players do NOT need to attend an assessment.

  • I will encourage my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.
