How do I get a refund if we decide as a family to cancel our registration ?
Please see below message posted on our News Feed on May 3, 2021
We are posting this message in order to keep parents and volunteers up to date with the upcoming 2021 season (Baseball and Softball).
We would like to start by thanking all those who have already begun to help out as volunteers. We have all our coaches, but some teams are still looking for assistants, managers or a health and safety coordinators. These are not difficult tasks, but the need is there in order to ensure that your children have a great and safe season of ball.
Thank You! to all who came out to volunteer their time to help ready the park. We very much appreciate the help. The turnout was amazing and we filled over 200 bags of leaves. The park looks great! If you are still looking to fulfill your volunteer requirements, do not hesitate to peruse the volunteer slots posted on our web page www.srmb.ca
The current Public Health Orders are making watching games and practices a little more challenging. Currently, for both Baseball and Softball, only one (1) parent per child is allowed to be present at the diamond. No siblings are allowed. If you are a coach, assistant, manager or health and safety coordinator, your child will be allotted a second parent â€˜spotâ€™. For LTP, a parent must be present on the field at all times.
Softball and Baseball practices will begin imminently, if they have not already been scheduled. You will notice the season has been pushed back due to the new parameters surrounding indoor practices. Softball games will be starting next week and Baseball will be starting in June. Please note that the LTP and 9U (Grand Slam) season will be held from May to the end of June. All other leagues will continue into July.
Refund Policy for 2021. The refund policy for 2021 will be as follows:
Seine River Minor Ball collects registration fees for the following purposes:
start up costs for the season such as purchasing balls, equipment, etc.
pay administrative costs (website maintenance, credit card fees, etc)
payment of league fees to Baseball Manitoba, Carillon and Softball Manitoba (fees range from $17 to $45 per player based on age
reimbursement of coaching and umpire clinic fees
park maintenance and repairs
Excess funds (if any) are used for the general betterment of the park and Baseball Club.
Due to the potential for changes in the provincial health restrictions, for 2021, Seine River Minor Ball will allow a player to cancel his or her registration for a full refund if done so by May 15, 2021. Cancellations initiated by the player after that date will not be issued a refund.
However, if there is a mid-season shut down/cancellation by Baseball Manitoba, Carillon or Softball Manitoba, Seine River Minor Ball will do its best to provide refunds. Essential costs as listed above, however, will need to be covered first. If there are any surplus funds they will be refunded on a pro-rated basis which will be determined at that time.
If you have any questions about the above, please do not hesitate to contact SRMB Baseball at email@example.com and SRMB Softball at firstname.lastname@example.org .

How do I register my child ?
To register your child, please click the link on the home page for the sport you wish your child to play. You will have to create a new account and create a profile for every child associated to your account. Once this is done, you can register your child for the season.
How do I volunteer my time for the club?
There are many ways to volunteer! You can help out your child`s team as a coach, assistant coach, manager, or safety coordinator. You can work in the canteen, help out during clean-up at the beginning of the season or help to close the park at the end of the season. You can help with the Fall Supper or even lend a hand in a tournament or provincial activity. Volunteer activities will be posted on the website (see Volunteer Slots) as they become available.
Do I have to pay the "volunteer fees" upfront or can I just volunteer my time during the season in order to cover the cost?
Volunteer fees will be collected for every family prior to the registration being accepted and considered complete.
If I have a child registered in Baseball and Softball, do I have to pay 2 volunteer fees for our family?
At this time, as the different sports are not yet connected on the site, yes. Let us know if this is the case for your family and you will be reimbursed for one of the two fees.
What is a jersey deposit (bond)?
A jersey deposit (bond) is a separate cheque of $50.00 which is collected for players ages 9U and older. This cheque will be cashed only if the jersey (uniform) is not returned by the end of the season. These cheques will be collected by the team managers at the beginning of the season.
What is Learn to Play / Timbits (LTP/Timbits) ?
LTP/Timbits is a house league style, as these players do not play against other towns. The players are introduced to baseball, learn the basics of throwing and hitting, and play games amongst their group with an emphasis on sportsmanship and self esteem. Tim Hortons sponsors this level in Manitoba and provides complimentary items for the players. Please register through Softball Manitoba on our web page. The division/category when registering will be Timbits.
A parent must be on the field with their child for this program.
