2021 Return to Play

With the announcement of the staged reopening plan by the Government of Alberta last week, practices for all BMBA teams will resume June 1st, 2021. Presently it is hoped that games will begin in Stage 2 of the plan starting June 10th, 2021.

Registration fees for all levels of baseball, softball and T-ball are currently scheduled to be processed on June 21st, 2021, with a refund deadline of June 28th, 2021. If the credit card you originally used during registration has expired or the info has changed, please update the Pending Payments Credit Card info within the Transactions area of your RAMP account prior to June 21st.

League schedules and other relevant information will be forwarded to the Coaches and Off-Field Managers of each team as it becomes available. Tentative season dates we have so far include:

  • Baseball Alberta “AA” – June 12 – August 29
  • GEMSA (U12, U14 & U16 softball) – June 14 – July 25
  • Pembina House (all “A” baseball teams) – Not Available
  • LSAC (U10 softball) – Not Available

2021 Registration Now Closed!

Registration for the 2021 season will be open from March 1 – April 1, 2021!

* COVID Changes: Due to the unpredictable nature of the COVID pandemic and associated public health restrictions, all 2021 registrations will be collected using a split payment procedure. A $5 non-refundable initial payment will be collected at the time of registration and subtracted from the total fee payable. The remainder of the registration fee will be deferred to May 10th, 2021, which is one week after our traditional season start date. If public health restrictions dictate that we delay, modify or suspend our 2021 activities, then all registered members will be updated accordingly and the necessary adjustment or cancellation of the pending fees will be made. This procedure should allow us to avoid the extra payment processing fees we incurred last year with the mass refunds.

A Registration Matrix has been provided below to help you determine which division you should register in, and which RAMP system to use. All BMBA registrations, fees and deposits will continue to be collected online using the RAMP system.  Please refer to our FAQ, or the Baseball Alberta or Softball Alberta websites, if you require more information about the various leagues and divisions available.

If you don’t already have a RAMP user account, you will be asked to create one first, after which you can then login and register your players in either system.  The Baseball and Softball/T-Ball systems are separate due to the separate integrations with the Baseball Alberta and Softball Alberta governing bodies, so if you have players to register in both systems please ensure you are logged into the correct one for each or you will not see the appropriate package options.  If you have any questions or difficulty registering please email us for assistance.

All players, parents, coaches and other participants in BMBA sponsored events are required to read and agree to our Code of Conduct and Discipline & Complaints policies.

BMBA 2020 COVID Return to Play

Based on the results of the surveys submitted to all of our registered members last week, the BMBA Executive has decided to proceed with a “Return to Play” plan and resume activities under our ‘AA’ competitive baseball program.

Online registration via the RAMP system is now open for ‘AA’ levels 11U, 13U, 15U and 18U, accessible using the following link:


Registration will only remain open until June 28th, 2020, in order to meet Baseball Alberta’s new deadline of June 30th. 

Based upon our survey results we expect to have enough participants to field at least two teams: one at 13U and one at 18U.  The few interested 11U and 15U players who responded to our survey will play up with either 13U or 18U respectively.  Also, the softball players who fall into these age groups who also expressed interest in returning to activity are encouraged to register in the corresponding ‘AA’ baseball age category and come play ball with us! 

The initial registration fee for everyone at all levels will be $45 per player.  This will only cover the initial cost of the planned Return to Play activities for July and possibly/optionally August, and this fee will be non-refundable.  If circumstances allow for expanded activity options later in July or August, such as inter-association play with carded umpires, then additional fees will be assessed at that time.  Activities will not proceed beyond August under this Return to Play plan. 

Participants need to be aware of the unique restrictions and conditions of a return to activity under this plan.  Of particular importance is the cohort restriction, which does not allow for participation in any other organized team sport activity while engaged in activities with Minor Ball.  This includes things like hockey camps or related activities that may be starting up in August, should our Return to Play activities extend that far.  All of the conditions of our “Return to Play” are explained in detail during the registration process, so please read everything and ensure you understand exactly what the requirements are for participation before you sign up. 

Expectations also need to be measured as this is not going to look like the typical ‘AA’ baseball activity many of you are familiar with.  Significant restrictions have been placed on almost everything from gameplay to travel, and circumstances beyond the control of BMBA could end our planned activities at any time.  Ultimately this is an opportunity to get some of our athletes, male and female, with baseball or softball backgrounds, back out onto the diamond for some much needed physical and social activity, insured and sanctioned by Baseball Alberta. 

Whether we see you on the diamond this year or next, everyone stay safe and healthy and have an enjoyable summer!
